http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz.htmlFound this quiz run by libertarians. Mind you, even a quiz can be rigged.
:)

It betrays the values of the person who wrote the quiz. You see, that's why I never take those polls on TV seriously.

Wow! Interesting, but nutty quiz. I came out 'authoritarian'. According to the quiz, I could be anything from a facist to a socialist. And here I was prinding myself on being a middle of the road, moderate, Reagan Democrat, sans the asinine 'trickle down a.k.a. vodoo economic' policies...

Pompous:

The term 'Reagan Democrat' refers to all the registered Democrats who voted for Republican Reagan in 1980 because they liked part of his political platform.

These were life long democrats who were swayed by Reagan's rhetoric and tough stance against the 'evil empire'. I think it was Newsweek who coined the term.

How anybody could have been lured by Reagonomics is beyond me. But then again, I do have the benefit of hindsight.

But honestly, how did people fall for the 'evil empire' propaganda? sure, the socialist states were no economic role model, but an 'evil empire'? Surely that couldn't have been right.

Anyway, turns out I'm a Centrist tending towards a Liberal Democrat. Confirms my suspicions that I am a left-of-centre social democrat.

Centrist. One unit from dead center in the bottom left diagonal direction.

Left of left. Precariously on the border .:)
Too few questiions for my liking.

Sharing the border with authoritarian, leaning toward right-conservative.

Don't know what it means but it's stupid. I should be outside the box.
