    Though you are probably *not* a libertarian in your basic political outlook, you are still able to find some common ground with the libertarian cause when it comes to social or economic freedoms (or possibly both). Your political roadmap for society most likely shares part of its route with the libertarians, but your ultimate political goal is probably different from the libertarian one.



    That's mine, but it should probably be a lot lower considering many of the questions could have been divided up, as they contained things I disagree with and other things I agree with, or the questions were assuming other things that render the question useless from my worldview.

    And there was at least one question that I had no idea what it was talking about...

    For all of those, my answer was neutral or partly negative or partly positive.

    Im in line with that about the test...

    As suspected....96%


    Watch out, we've got a (blank) over here. A hardcore libertarian, to be exact. In your case it would be patently wrong not to classify you as a libertarian as you are in complete agreement with almost all of the libertarian positions, save for a few pet peeves. Perhaps you are one of those eccentric libertarians who have a soft spot for the trappings of hereditary aristocracy and monarchy. Perhaps you have a personal religious faith to which you assign priority over more worldly matters, or perhaps it's something else altogether. In any event, though you nurture a few pet peeves, you really are an ardent libertarian. You probably use socialist as a swear word, and you strive to banish the influence of statist scum on your life. While you are not quite 100% libertarian, you truly are hardcore.

    In your case it is safe to say that you are *not* a libertarian. Whether because you prefer a greater degree of social discipline or economic regulation (or possibly both), you probably tend to find large swatches of the libertarian program to be far-fetched, extremist, and possibly even downright repulsive. If you are not the argumentative type, you had best stay clear of libertarians - they have a reputation for being insufferable in an argument.

    Hey, that's cool...I welcome your input as well.

    So what about Constitutional Conservatism that attracted you to it?
    There are many irrational policies and attitudes destroying our modern American society.
    The principles behind the Constitution are much more rational as are most of the Judeo-Christian beliefs that were in practice in the 1700s.
    My "Libertarianism" comes mostly from my belief in holding people responsible for their actions and getting rid of "Nanny State" mentality.
    I am also opposed to corporations and LLCs (and labor unions) and am a strong believer in small businesses run by a sole proprietor or partnership who can choose who they will and will not do business with based on their own religious and political beliefs.

    My results:

    You are 45% Libertarian, which makes you a Soft-core Libertarian.

    Your basic political view is probably more libertarian than anything else, but you nevertheless hold clear reservations about central parts of the libertarian agenda. You understand the libertarian rationales and see where they are coming from, but you still find some of their policy recommendations to be too harsh, too anarchistic, or too extreme for the overall good of society. It is people like you who add a human face (and a bleeding heart) to an ideology that is otherwise perceived as cynical.
