Economic Left/Right: -3.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.56
I a little surprised that I found myself on so left.
Here in Finland I've always got Conservatives in  electionmachines. But in America many things is in a different way. I think most of Finnish conservatives voters and at least half of conservative politician aligned with USA Dems.  On the other hand it was also interesting to noticed that most of American Dems in the forum are on left from me! Maybe there are real Left in USA!!

100% Greens (!)
Natural Law 92%
Democrats 77%
Reform 62%
Libertarians 23%
Republicans 23%
Constitution P. 23%

Well. I'm not Green. That's sure. I Finland I disagree most with them (and former communists
of course)In Madrabbit I was Hillary Clinton and that's OK.  Political Compass is much better than these two others and only one which is suitable for non-American user. Only its questions were universal. For example: I can't trust CIA, because I'm not an American. I trust its Finnish counterpart, of course.

And where I can get  yellow faces to my post???

They're smilies, you create them by different combination, like a colon followed by a parenthesis or a semicolon followed by a parenthesis and so on. I am not that good at them though, I only know a few.

More of a policy based test rather than ideological...which seems to indicate that I'm (and I suspect most of us) are much more pragmatic/practical when it comes to policy.

Personal Score  64%  
Economic Score  55%  

 
Where You Fit In

Where your Personal score meets your Economic score on the grid below is your political philosophy.  Based on the above score, you are a Moderate Libertarian Liberal .

Hmm. There are a bunch of quizes on selectsmart.com (some good, others not so) that rank compatible ideologies to your answers [and don't use the libertarian biased Nolan chart].

Lemme see if I can dig a couple of those up...

Results

2) Left-Libertarian

4) Liberal
5) Neoconservative

[Note theres a link on the quiz page to this guy's definition for each]

http://www.selectsmart.com/FREE/select.php?client=polphil

Results

#1 You are a social liberal. Like all liberals, you believe in individual freedom as a central objective - but you believe that lack of economic opportunity, education, healthcare etc. can be just as damaging to liberty as can an oppressive state. As a result, social liberals are generally the most outspoken defenders of human rights and civil liberties, and combine this with support for a mixed economy, with an enabling state providing public services to ensure that people's social rights as well as their civil liberties are upheld.
 
2 Market Liberal
3 Anarcho-Capitalist
4 Libertarian Conservative
5 Social Democrat

Ideology Selector
1. Neoconservative
2. Conservative
3. Centrist
4. Liberal
5. Third Way

European Ideologies
1. Market Liberal

You adhere to the traditional liberal belief in freedom, and take this to mean negative rather than positive freedom - i.e. a slimmed-down state is the best guarantor of freedom. You will therefore support a laissez-faire economic policy, and you will be reasonably tolerant on the social front - though less emphatically so than social liberals.

2. Anarcho-capitalist
3. Social liberal
4. Christian Democrat
5. libertarian conservative

4) Natural Law Party    47%
5) Democratic Party     40%

Interesting I've never really looked into the constitution party.

Economic Left/Right: 4.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 2.97

Hmmm I think I'm a little more centered then that/

and finally on that one test I got a 29 which means I'm almost Jack Kemp.

1. Liberal
2. Third Way
3. Centrist
4. Radical (I'm sure that I'm not)
5. Neoconservative

My views change when I move from Finland to USA. In Finland I favour to reduce taxes and some goverment interventions. In Finland we have TOO MUCH transfer of incomes. I think that  goverment has responsibility to guarantee healtcare, education and  minimum living. But in Finland social security is too openhanded which gives wrong signal particularly to young people and makes many working people unnecessarily dependent on goverment's support.

These were my results. I am surprised to see neoconservative so high, but Third Way was not that big a surprise. Question to Americans: what's the difference between Third Way and Centrist, and what does the paleo stuff mean?

1. Third Way
2. Liberal
3. Neoconservative
4. Left-Libertarian
5. Radical
6. Conservative
7. Centrist
8. Libertarian
9. Paleolibertarian

OK, on the second one, my best match was:

Market liberal

You are a market liberal. You adhere to the traditional liberal belief in freedom, and take this to mean negative rather than positive freedom - i.e. a slimmed-down state is the best guarantor of freedom. You will therefore support a laissez-faire economic policy, and you will be reasonably tolerant on the social front - though less emphatically so than social liberals.

then came:

2. Social Liberal
3. Anarcho-capitalist
4. Libertarian Conservative
5. Third Way
6. Ecologist/green
7. Social Democrat
8. Christian Democrat
9. Anarcho-Communist
10. Classical Socialist
11. Fascist
12. Communist

I hope I was far from the idelogies at the bottom...

I am not surprised at the result. I have always viewed myself as more of a libertarian conservative, but my centrism brings me towards more liberal beliefs. It did indicate that I am further to the right than other political tests, but since I have always viewed myself as "rightist" I am not really schocked by that.

Didn't see this test until just now.



Always knew it this just confirms it I'm a Moderate Conservitive

With one I got

Neoconservitive
Conservitive
Centerist

the other I got

1.) Libertarian Conservative

You hold that the free market is the best way of organising economic activity, but you combine this with adherence to more traditional social values of authority and duty.

Fairly accurate I suppose

2.)Christian Democrat
3.)Anarcho-Capitalist
4.)Third Way
5.)Market Liberal
6.)Social Liberal
7.)Social Democrat
8.)Fascist
9.)Green
10.)Classical Socialist
11.)Communist
12.)Anarcho-Communist

My top five Euro Identifications were:

1) Christian Democrat

2) Libertarian Conservative

3) Market Liberal

4) anarcho-capitalist

5) social liberal


You are a Christian democrat - or, in the UK, a "One Nation conservative"; in other words, although you share the usual conservative belief in stability and duty, you believe that such duties include a responsibility on the part of the better-off to help those who are less fortunate. You will be socially conservative, but in favour of a mixed economy where the state does have a role in providing public services. Christian democracy arose after World War II, succeeding more doctrinaire Catholic parties dating from the 1870s.

Paleo means "old"  so I think that what they mean are the old fashion Liberals, who are basically libertarian and the old fashion Conservatives who are basically Federalists.

I am reminded about a joke about a Swedish Teflon man, Björn Rosengren. It ran like this:

What happens if Forsemark (A nuclear power plant near Stockholm) explodes? Everyone dies except Rosengren, b/c he survives everything... Smiley

It isn't very good, I know, but it's kind of funny for those of us who know about the outrageous things he survived. Amazing guy really.
