Most readers of this blog probably think of themselves as conservatives. But are you really?
There’s a political ideology quiz called the Nolan Chart, which is recommended by Glenn Beck. The quiz is comprised of 10 questions to determine what your ideology really is. Are you Conservative or Libertarian or Centrist or — horrors! — a Liberal or Statist? LOL
This how the Nolan Chart defines the various categories:
libertarian: supports the smallest possible government, supports individual liberty in all ways, prefers to only defend our borders and not interfere in other countries’ affairs.
conservative: tends to give lip-service to liberty while placing emphasis on government control of “family” issues (gay marriage, abortion, borders, etc.) while pushing for major military involvement worldwide by America, in the hopes of creating a faith-based, “conservative” world.
liberal: tends to give lip-service to liberty while placing emphasis on government control of “social issues” (social safety net, minority rights, etc.) while pushing for major diplomatic involvement worldwide by America backed by somewhat lesser military involvement, in the hopes of creating an inclusive, “liberal” world.
statist: the marriage of liberal and conservative aspects of big government. Supports both the conservative “family” agenda and the liberal “social” agenda. Supports both major diplomatic and military involvement abroad.
centrist: somewhere in the middle of all of the above.
The quiz takes only a couple of minutes to complete (CLICK HERE).
Will you report back to us on your results? I’m a Libertarian, which I prefer renaming “Classical Liberalism” — the founding ideology of the United States of America.
