I'm opposite of you...

Democrat - You believe that there should be a free market which is reigned in by a modest state beaurocracy. You think that capitalism has some good things, but that those it helps should be obliged to help out their fellow man a little. Your historical role model is Franklin Rosevelt.

Let's try to keep this cool people.
I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.

Ahhhhhhhhhh! I thought I was starting to lean a tad towards the Republican side, although I still think George W. Bush is a moron, but this poll says I am. I even took it twice, because I agree with a few of the answers a some of the questions, and got Republican boh time. I know, don't put too much stock into this poll, but I agree with the synopsis it gives:

Republican - You believe that the free market will take care of most things, but that the government should be there with moderate taxation to provide for national defense and enforcing morality. Your historical role model is Ronald Reagan.

Like IHadAPheo, I may be in the wrong party, or else I'm a very conservative Democrat

Nuff Said. Other than that I am a MODERATE/CENTRIST Republican. And if ANYONE dares to try to make me feel evil with that picture of Ronnie Ray Gun, I'll chew you up and spit you out like gum! So back off all you far-left liberals and far-right conservatives!

Anyway, let's keep it civil.  Big thumbs up Peace out!

Nader
Green - You believe that small economic units
should control the goods, and that the
government should be permissive of
"victimless crimes," respectful of
civil liberties and very strict towards big
business. You also believe in either a
socialist tax structure or more power to local
communities. You think that environmental
policies should be written into law. Your
historical role model is Ralph Nader.

Chances are LH432, you are a Moderate Centrist. I remember another quiz that was FAR more accurate and had more detail. Basically a grid, Center, and then on each corner you had Right, Authoritarian, Libertarian, Left. Pegged me as a Right-Authoritarian Leaning Centrist.

Libertarian - You believe that the main use for government is for some people to lord it over others at their expense. You maintain that the government should be as small as possible, and that civil liberties, "victimless crimes", and gun ownership should be basic rights. You probably are OK with capitalism. Your historical role model is Thomas Jefferson.

==================================================


This quiz is a joke. I liked Jcs17's better.
This quiz doesn't look at the big picture and injects personal emotional rhetoric to it's questions.

As much as I agree with Ralph Nader, I would NEVER vote Green. I voted for Al Gore because I knew he could stop the Bushman's evil regime.
Too bad Gore didn't take in to account Jeb, Harris, there friends on the U.S.S.C., 19,000+ ballods being thrown out, etc..

To all liberals, remember what Green stands for:
Get
Republicans
Elected

Anarcho-Syndicalist - You believe that governments and corporations are both equally evil. You think that all people should have maximum personal freedom. You think everyone should have control over their economic production, because the economy should be structured completely in terms of cooperatives and communes. Your historical role model is Noam Chomsky.

Socialist - You believe the free market can be beneficial, but that a large and powerful state is necessary to redistribute the wealth of the top classes to those of the bottom. You also think that basic utilities and trasportation should be publicly owned. Your historical role model is Eugene Debs.

Surprise, surprise, I'm a socialist  Smile/happy/getting dizzy ! By and large, the provided definition is right, except I question the notion that socialism has to be implemented by a "large and powerful state". I'd rephrase it a bit to say something like:

You believe the free market is overall beneficial, but that a state with sufficient power is necessary to redistribute the wealth of the top classes to those of the bottom. You also think that some basic utilities and transportation cannot achieved their social goals if runned by private corporation and should therefore be publicly owned. Your historical role model is ...

Now I have to get to know that Eugene Debs.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

I don't really agree with the large and powerful state idea, either. Generally, I mistrust government.
Qb001:
Eugene V. Debs is a pretty cool character. I learned about him in my A.P. U.S. History class. He's not very prominent, even in among Americans.

Here's a brief summary from encyclopedia.com.

1855-1926, American Socialist leader, b. Terre Haute, Ind. Leaving high school to work in the railroad shops in Terre Haute, he became a railroad fireman (1871) and organized (1875) a local of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen. In 1880 he became national secretary and treasurer of the brotherhood, and in 1884 he was elected to the Indiana legislature. He resigned (1892) from the brotherhood and launched (1893), instead of a trade union, an industrial union to include all railroad workers, the American Railway Union, of which he became president. After a successful strike against the Great Northern RR, the American Railway Union participated (1894) in the Pullman strike by refusing to service Pullman cars. An injunction, however, was served against the strikers and federal troops, sent to Illinois by President Cleveland over the protest of Illinois governor John P. Altgeld , broke the strike. Debs and others were convicted of violating the injunction and sentenced to a six-month jail term. While in prison, Debs read widely, including socialist works, and later became a Socialist. In 1898, he helped form the Social Democratic party (renamed the Socialist party in 1901; again renamed Social Democratic in 1972) and was (1900) its presidential candidate, polling 96,000 votes. As candidate (1904) of the Socialist party, he received 402,000 votes. He became editor of the Socialist weekly Appeal to Reason and lectured widely. After 1900, he grew more bitter in his attacks on trade unionism and more vehement in advocating the organization of labor by industries. He helped to found (1905) the Industrial Workers of the World , but soon withdrew from the movement. Debs was again the Socialist candidate for President in 1908 and 1912. During World War I, the Socialist party refused to take part in the government war effort and in 1918 Debs, a leading pacifist, was sentenced to a 10-year prison term for publicly denouncing the government's prosecution of persons charged with sedition under the Espionage Act of 1917. Although still in a federal penitentiary, he was Socialist candidate for President in 1920 and gathered nearly 920,000 votes. He was released (1921) by order of President Harding. But his health was broken, and he accomplished little in his last years, although he was widely revered as a martyr for his principles.
