Be what you want to be, polls don't mean a thing. :)

FWIW, I agree with the Libertarians on one or two issues, the Democrats on a few more, and agree with the Republicans on many of the rest. I am probably 50% republican, 35% democrat, 10% libertarian, and 5% none of the above.

I figure I'm about 50/50, truthfully. But my red meat issue is making people get off their lazy asses and work for a living, so I side with the old fuddy duddies.

My major interest is in foreign policy, (not because its more important, just because I find it far more interesting than most domestic issues). But even there, my views run the gamut.

I wish foreign policy was as simple as "let's sit down with the other side and all will get better". Jimmy Carter taught me how fruitless that approach can be.

Well, Carter did bring about a peace between Egypt and Israel that has lasted for 20 plus years now.

Hasn't done much good, except for Egypt. And their leader was assassinated after that.

Sure it has. Both sides suffered a lot of casualties in the prior wars, casualties that have mostly been eliminated. Both nations are better off economically and security wise now than they were in 1978. As bad as the situation with Hamas is now, its still a lot better than the 4 wars fought between 1945 and 1974.

Well, after taking that quiz, I'm a "Centrist", more on the Liberal and "Statist" side of things.

90% libertarian on both personal and economic. guess im more liberal than liberals.

LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and

economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one

that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.

Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose

government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate

diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 100%.

Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 30%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

button%20liberal.jpg

LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal

matters, but tend to support significant government control of the

economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net"

to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation

of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,

defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action

to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

it's not about the government having my money, i just think the list of top evils goes: corporations, government instead of government, corporations. liberals and libertarians have the same views on what the ends should be, but different ideas of how we can get there.
