That said, for all the flaws Walker has, they're nothing in comparison to those of his loudest critics.

Right-Leaning Libertarian Multilateralist Cosmopolitan Progressive

Collectivism score: -33%
Authoritarianism score: -50%
Internationalism score: 50%
Tribalism score: -33%
Liberalism score: 50%

Highest ranking dimension: Individualist
You believe in the right of an individual to "be themself" in thought and deeds. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a politician with the nerve to tell people when it comes to controlling others, they should mind their own business. This may be because you enjoy a diversity of experiences and don ’t get offended easily. It may also be because you’ve seen people be persecuted. Others may disagree with you because they feel a right to protect what they see as community values. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they underestimate people’s need for sta bility and safety.

Second highest ranking dimension: Small Government
You believe in a government that keeps order but otherwise stays out of the way. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a government with the courage to take on some of the "sacred cows" of government spending. This may be because you have been irked by how much you pay in taxes. It may also be because you feel that excessive government support programs reward those with no initiative. Others may disagree with you because they see some people as having the system stacked against them. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is because they find it difficult to maintain the "tough love" approach when their friends and supporters ask for help.

Combined statement:
Based on your answers, you would prefer a state for pioneers, innovators and rugged individualism.

The Minarchist

AGSD: Activist, proGressive, Self-reliant, Deregulating.
Live free or die! You're a government minimalist. You agree with the sentiment, "that government is best which governs least."

A basic government that maintains law and order and defends the nation from attack is all you're really looking for. You don't trust the government in your bedroom or near your wallet; either way it will probably put its hands where you don't want them!

You also feel that most people are perfectly capable of running their own lives without the government's help. And those who get into trouble can get help from their families or private charities.

Of course freedom is messy. The poor have little to no social safety net in your world. But, if they pull themselves up by their bootstraps, read some Ayn Rand, and get a damn job, life will be better in no time!

As for voting, you probably hold your nose when you get to the polls. For a while, Republicans catered more to your tastes than Democrats. But now that George W decided to turn the GOP into the party of Big Government, the Democrats aren't looking so bad. There is always the Libertarian Party, if you don't mind throwing away your vote.

If you scored under 10 on all four categories, then you, my friend, are an anarchist. You're probably taking this test from your heavily armed compound, waiting for the ATF and FBI to bust down the doors. Or you're trying to push a safety pin through your upper lip, while listening to the Sex Pistols. Don't forget to sanitize that thing!

Notable Minarchists are Thomas Jefferson, Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, and Ron Paul.

Is this a thing? lol at 'acceptance'. We've accepted fat people for a long time as people. But we should not just accept fatness if that's what it is.

Quality of schools

Only either Mobile, AL or eastern Oregon.

Why? Do you like living in the middle of nowhere or something?
85  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Where do you rather want to live? on: September 20, 2015, 04:30:03 pm
The actual Oregon coast is a collection of small towns. The north coast leans more democratic due to a mix of touristy towns and a higher concentration of Scandinavians then the rest of the state, but it also contains some agrarian areas that are more swingy. The south coast below Florence is solidly republican.

The only areas of the state that could be actually be described as having SJW "culture" are Portland and the college towns of Corvallis and Eugene. Stereotypical Portland liberalism is by no means something common throughout the state.

Yeah, that's where he lives. I hate it there.

There are no Islamic democracies anywhere in the world. Turkey is no democracy.

Would the world be better off without Islam??? No doubt.

Would this forum be better off without you? No doubt.

My answer should be obvious.

outside of the SJW coast

Utter nonsense. The coast is not at all "SJW," although I know you like that term so much you've appropriated it to mean things you don't like.

If northwest liberals aren't SJW than no one is SJW.

FTR my Tea Party, bible thumping, gun nut grandfather live in a samll town on the Oregon coast.

Finally, a policy that Christian fundamentalists and feminists can agree on! Sex haters of the world, unite! Roll Eyes

Yeah, feminists (who all think the same, natch) are totally sex-haters who want nothing more to tax porn. Roll Eyes

I'd say "stop living in the 1970s" but I'm not convinced your statement was true even back then (less false, maaaybe).

I feel for TNF. Having to find something to hate and despise about every subset of the left that isn't his own minuscule outfit can be a strenuous work.


I mean, obviously not all feminists have a negative attitude towards pornography, but it's not like anti-porn feminists don't exist.

Trump is more socially fascist, while Clinton is more fiscally fascist.

It's like if BRTD took control of a municipality...

LOL. It's well known that if I ever took control of a municipality I'd stop enforcing any laws I disagree with and thus the place would probably become a haven for escorts and marijuana dealers.

"All liberal, all the time."


So would conservatives be allowed to live in your hypothetical municipality?

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street
