Based on your answers, you are most likely a realist.

This particular quiz is only on foreign policy issues except the last question, and even that is asking about a balance of foreign policy and domestic.

The libertarians have a quiz as well to see if you are their ilk.

Are you a libertarian? (http://www.lp.org/quiz/)

In that one, I am a centrist. Perhaps I should run for President for the Democrats in 2008. :)

Liberal Libertarian

In other words. A moderate democrat

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.

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.

Whoman,

according to your quiz, I'm an extreme libertarian. Of course, with only 10 questions on a poll, I somehow doubt it's scientific validity, but then again, it's not there to be scientific as much as to promote the libertarian agenda.

Bah, I didn't even bother taking the other quiz. The questions are so slanted and designed to force you into one position (3 basically say the same thing and one takes the extreme position the other way).

Obviously whoever designed that quiz simply wanted to propagandize rather than actually make a point.

Piece of crap writing.

Agreed.

I took another test a while back and it said I was a Neo. I changed a couple of my answers on this test and went from Realist to Isolationist.
