There are 50 questions, covers most things you'd think of, I like it.

You have to download it, but its a zip file, and it's small.

Just go into the last folder and click RealPolitik

Apparently, I'm a:

Capitalist-Conservative

Capitalist-Conservatives support tradition, the rule of law, and tough policies to control
the evil in society.

You would most likely be an Anti-Communist, and a promoter of freedom and democracy. You would be patriotic for your country, and quite possibly religious.

Conservative Anarcho-Capitalist

I probably answered the tax questions less substantively.

I'm a moderate-capitalist, only because for all the questions that couldn't be pigeonholed I put down moderate.

I dislike the test, it seems like a bunch of questions taken from political compass and a few other of those quiz sites.

I quizzed my motherís husband. He liked to claim he was a LPC supporter. He got Libertarian, than claimed the test was biased towards (in favour of) Conservatism. I laughed my ass off.

I got Conservative- Anarcho Capitalist, which fits me to a T. I'm Conservative on economic policy, and while I sypathise with the Libertarians, I believe that we need a somewhat active foreign policy, and strong rule of law.

To reply to DavidK, I think that the quiz is somewhat biased towards Conservatism, in terms of the way the questions are laid out. All of the questions use agree as the Conservative position. Most of the other quizzes I've taken, have agree as either a liberal or conservative position, depending on the question. I find that people are more likely to hit agree so that might affect the results. However, in your mother's husband's case I think he's just one of those people who votes liberal simply because he hasn't taken a look at the issues since he was 20 :P

Moderate Capitalist

Often termed the "Centre-Right" in political talk, a moderate Capitalist would support a
reasonable amount of social freedom along with lots of economic freedom.

Many Western Countries have adopted this policy, and it's reasonable to say that it works well.


Just about where I expected

According to the test, that's Harper.

I tried it with the Liberal platform from the last election and this is what I got:
Quote:
What is a Socialist-Liberal?

Socialist-Liberals support excessive rights for the people, and little rights for the greedy
Corporate thugs.

Socialist-Liberals wish to bring about social change and peace. You support lots of social
spending to help the poor and needy, and are hostile to governments that abuse their power.


Exactly. How dare those corporations provide more effective goods and services than the government at cheaper price! Those bastards :roll: [/quote]

The test is most definitely biased. Biased against Mac users.

Gee, I wonder how Apple could possibly attack a fine, stable platform like Vista? :roll:
