I'm a liberal living in the USA. As a result I am not a Democrat. The Democratic party is a party of war and corporatism so I am not represented in American politics.

I am anti-war.

I support all programs that help minorities and the poor and would like to see those programs increased.

I am for maximum personal freedoms save for gun ownership. Its clear to me that my fellow Americans are not responsible with firearms and that is proven over and over again on a daily basis.

As a liberal who supports such big government policies I am also a conspiracy theorists who believes our goverments hide massive criminal activity from us. My solution to solve that would be a drastic upheaval of the systems in place. Replaced by a government that is severely less military based and without influence by monied interests. Criminal activity like the war in Iraq would be investigated and punishments doled out. Actual conspiracies would be exposed no matter the consequences.

I couldn't agree more. I hate the two part system. I am constantly having to change what party I am registered with to vote. Sometimes I want to vote for a Democrat, sometimes i want to vote for a republican or a libertarian. I vote based on who I think is the best person for the job, (lately, that seems to be none of the above unfortunately) I don't care what party they represent.

As you said, we are pigeonholed into the 2 party system. I refuse to comply.

You have to register with a party too vote in the USA?


Sounds China ish to me

the problem with my results are that I had a lot of "yes, buts" like some other people have said tests like these pigeon hole to much. Its like the offshore oil rigging question, yes i think companies should be able to drill off shore more, but safety standards should be very strict and oil by products shouldn't be allowed to be used in human products before they are tested extensively. Also there should be no negative effect on the local wild life, if anything they should have to provide some type of benefit to the local wild life.

I feel like I often find myself almost alone on the side of "common sense and moderation".
I always hope I am not though.

Yes you do in most states for primary elections. Some states allow you to vote for who ever you want. Other states require that you register with a particular party prior to the election, and a few of the states allow you to change parties the day of the election.
I find it very annoying especially if I want to vote for a Independent in my local election a Democrat in my state election and a Republican in the national election for example since I could care less what party they are affiliated with.

Huh, how about that, I ended up with the Libertarians. Who would of guessed.

The surprising thing to me was I was aligned with democrats on the economy. At least according to this test (still suspicious.)

In all honesty I find the Libertarians a little stiff necked and rule oriented. Where's the anarchist party?


The Anarchist couldn't be bothered to orginize, each doing his own thing I suppose...


Its why I consider myself Libertarian if I had to at all, its the bare minimum level of "Meh leave me alone", that allows formation of groups.

To me that seems wrong on so many levels, it one step away from the Chinese or North Korean method of requiring people tor register for the communist party. Only thing that separates them is you have two party's not one. Or at least the illusion of two party's.

Here's mine. I was a little surprised the GOP percentage was as high as it was. It probably wouldn't have been if they didn't have all of those questions about immigration.

It's a nice survey for the governments database.

I'm none of the above, freedom isn't about division it's about common ground. We have all been divided for too long and it's time to come together.

If you think the most risky thing is taking a silly online political quiz...

You aren't paying attention to the news.

They know already, they can see what you read, what you click, what you say.

They don't need a quiz, hell, you have an ATS Log on...

That puts you on the radar more than any online quiz.

Same here. It's the lesser of all the evils and lets me side with whom I choose instead of JUST Dems or JUST Rebs. I really don't like feeling like I HAVE to choose 1 of the 2 always thrown out into the limelight.



To EVERYONE - STARS all around for everyone who came and posted. Thank You!

All of the results varied throughout all the parties as I figured they would. We are all alike in the one fact that we don't necessarily toe the party lines. We can all work together if we all realize we do have common ground between us. None of us are 100% anything and that is refreshing.
