Interesting test. I have taken several different kinds of those tests, and I always come out with a different answer lol.. guess its how I feel that
This test said I am "Authoritarian Left".. Which.. I don't know how it came to that lol. Last time I was right next to Hitler (I believe that one
is actually on my MySpace page)..
But what I find.. Odd to say the least about this test is that its divided Authoritarian / Libertarian and then divided between Left and Right for
That makes no sense to me..
From Right to Left this is a graph of political ideologies.
Anarchy - Libertarianism - Republican/conservative - Democratic/Liberal - Socialist - Communist
I cannot fathom the possibility of a "Liberal Libertarian" ..
Because Libertarianism .. true Libertarianism is the complete absence of the Government in individual lives.. including being removed from the
Essentially under a Libertarianism government the Federal Government would be highly limited..
Where as under any Liberal system the government is in everyones daily affairs.. high taxes, business regulations, individual regulations, a Federal
system of education, healthcare, welfare, medicair.. all these things to a Libertarian are considered Unconstitutional..
In fact.. it would be considered unconstitutional for the government to give ANYONE any kind of aid in forms like welfare and medicare and all that
To say that someone could be a left leaning libertarian.. whats leaning left? .. would you want massive federal aid to social programs, yet not have
the government be so intrusive in our lives? Seems like an oxymoron to me.. a conflict of interest.
Of course, no one is absolute on what party they stand for.. I consider my self a pretty strict Libertarian, I despise any form of government
involvement in State and individual affairs.. however not all of my views are Libertarian.. some are quite far left such as my beliefs in ecology and
that the Government should spend/do a LOT more to protect the enviroment..
But the very fundementals of "what is a Libertarian" is government involvement.. which is the fundemental basics to what a Liberal is - the State
should care for the people..
Though I can see why someone from the Left side of things would want to vote for Paul.. hes very anti war.. but not because war hurts people.. because
Libertarians are by nature Issolationist, and so also anti Free Trade with systems like NAFTA, the UN, NATO or any organization like that.. including
the World Court.
He wants to eradicate the IRS and use a fair tax system, however, to do such a thing almost every single social program will have to be cut, to
drastically reduce spending.. so no ore Medicare, Welfare, Social Security
Not trying to tell you what your ideologies are.. actually, more or less just rambling lol.
