a political quiz

here is world's smallest political quiz/survey (it's also called the original internet political quiz). if you want to know where you fit in to the political map answer the 10 questions given.

map in question is the nolan chart (here is the wikipedia entry on nolan chart).

quiz is presently hosted by advocates for self government (wikipedia entry about them).

here is a washington post article on nolan chart and this quiz. here are some other reviews.

i am writing this after reading the recent post on durga and michael's blog about a different longer political quiz.

btw i was described as a libertarian after both quizzes :-)

to learn more about libertarianism see,

libertarian faq.

so what kind of a political animal are you?

Your Liberatian website quiz says that I'm CENTRIST: "espouse a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on
the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.
Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,
tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what
they describe as "practical" solutions to problems."

That sounds just about right...but it's not that simple, will explain where I stand in another post.

I'm a centrist as well, thought I was more liberal. Oh well.

Sittingonhisnuts=libertanian asswart

Actually I got called a Libertanian on Australian issues and a Conservative Statist on Sri Lankan ones.

Sittingnut works for the Ranil's red lip mafia. Ranil is gonna legalize gay marriage and he'll be the best man when Sittingnut and Morquendi get married.
