    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

    About as expected, my social liberal streak cancels out my fiscal conservative side, and tend towards libertarian fairly consistently.

    It is interesting that everyone so far has scored firmly in libertarian territory. It seems odd that we can't find more common ground. I would genuinely like to see how theists score on the test. Any takers?

    Try it yourself. See how far you can get him on the left while actually trying to be honest about how he'd answer. I really don't think you have anything other than Fred running as a Democrat and the other saying he endorsed Obama (cause he's the Antichrist and will bring about the end times they've all been chomping the bit for) or you would have made with it by now.

    I was close to the center which is where I always considered myself.

    True, of those that have responded thus far, you are closest to the center. Another reason why I am eager to see where some of the more vocal theists here place.

    So, let me see if I got this straight. You want to put up your imagination up against the Phelps clan running as Democrats and, supporting democrat candidates, and endorsing democrats.

    You're imagined "Phelp's" responses put into a political pigeon holing program vs. reality.


    Naw. I'm going to stick with reality.

    So I am theist.

    Did I fall where you thought I would?

    Do I come across this way?

    Thanks.

    Just noticed that I am about the same as the Dalai Lama

    I have a suspicion that some people skewed their answers to get a desired result. It was brought up in a GTPI thread.

    All other things aside, and I mean that, these are not the posts of a libertarian.

    More

    :dunno: It's kind of obvious that does not match with this.

    Only way I can describe that is a position that Liberty is something that he should have, and authoritarian control is what all others should experience. It's very oddly incompatible. But it's only a test, created by people. Who knows. :headscratch:

    Why are you such a pot stirrer? Bringing one thread into another and another and another. Why do you have such a hard on for Gunhaver and Myself?

    Agnostic theists or agnostic atheists? Both?

    Correction; those are not the posts of a RIGHT libertarian. You do understand what the horizontal plane of that chart represents?

    You are a rightist. You believe in the individual. I'm a leftist. I believe in society as a whole. We both believe in minimal government. You want that minimal gov. to protect you from the actions of other individuals. I want that extended to the actions of other large groups that try to horde power and resources.

    In the absence of right or left libertarian candidates you vote for the more right authoritarian guy and I vote for the more left one. Funny thing is that I'm really more about the vertical plane of that scale than the horizontal one.

    Anybody care to search up my Paul supporter posts? He's right lib. and I was much more in favor of him than Obama. Unfortunately Paul wasn't interested in forcing Christianity and drug prohibition or gay marriage and free birth control on us so nobody on either side wanted him and not nearly enough people took him seriously.

    I'm not a whiny ***** like CF so I voted for the left authoritarian over the right one and then look at the bright side of that (Obamacare for my lady friend) and you all jump my ass like it was my idea. You guys that are so worried about gov. power might do well to pay close attention to the next guy that sounds like Paul.
