    You are a

    Social Moderate
    (50% permissive)

    and an...

    Economic Liberal
    (31% permissive)

    You're a Centrist.

    Seems more or less correct. Though I support Obama (somewhat anyway), I've never truly leaned heavily towards being a democrat (just slightly) as opposed to a Republican. They both have their perks. The problem is that the Republican party right now is an absolute trainwreck; if done right, it can be quite successful and admirable.

    ^Hahahaha you see some people/media send the message that Obama is a socialist and this is the result.

    It's laughable cause in Europe we'll definately put Obama on the right side of the political spectrum.

    Oh yeah . . . I heard about that. I don't think many people were really happy about that billboard, either.

    And weren't Hitler and Stalin supposedly exact opposites on the political spectrum? Like, Hitler was far right and Stalin far left?

    Stalin? I don't see Stalin.

    Hitler was fascist, to the far right. Stalin was under the pretense of being communist, which would be to the far left, but he was much closer to-if not completely-fascist. Lenin wasn't as bad as Stalin, but I don't know enough about his reign to tell where he stands.

    Lenin, right. Lenin. Don't know why I said said Stalin.

    I just looked it up. Hitler was, as you said, far left, and Lenin was far right.

    They were on the opposite left right spctrum, but I guess they were on the same side of the liberal/authoritarian side (both were authoritarian).

    But yeah, Hitler and the Nazis despised Communists and Socialists. Those were their enemies in the Reichstag, and the commies were the target of the fire the nazis set (so they could be chased out of the political process).
    And of course all the killing of them he did later.

    Your true political self:

    You are a
    Social Liberal
    (85% permissive)

    and an...

    Economic Liberal
    (38% permissive)

    You are best described as a:

    Strong Democrat



    You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.
    Sounds okay. I do not believe government should meddle around in things (like some of those questions) that does not get much attention. If it fails, it fails. People are what helps these bussiness grow and work. That's what I think though.

    And while there's suffering in other parts of the world like sickness, hunger and whatnot, It's not entirely possible to help them all. It's unfortunate but people die. However, I do support helping those we can mainly because there are people who would rather not sit back and do nothing.

    War has been around forever. I can't say I have anything agianst it. Corruption is within it, but corruption is everywhere.

    Can't really tell if my way of thinking is dangerous or not. My parents weren't really into politics. Neither am I. I just form my ideas through what I see.

    You don't have anything against war? That's kind of a weird statement.

    Well, not everything for say. There is the production of weapons that can destory a whole civilization(like the Atomic bomb used on Japan). I don't think the world needs such things. Then there's soldiers that would use a war zone as a good excuse to gun down innocent civilians. I'm sure I barely touched the surface on the idea of war being bad for the world, but it's inevitable most of the time.

    War and religion are responsible for any regression in science and civilization, probably from the very beginning.

    Ironically, war is responsible for many of the technological boons as well.

    I think I know why.

    IMO, to conflict with each other is the nature of human. War is inevitable and will never cease to exist as long as human desire exists.

    Who names their child Sunshine? and how is this relevant to anything?

    What I expected, I'm more of a floating voter with an allegiance to the party best placed at the moment.
