You are a

Social Liberal
(78% permissive)

and an...

Economic Conservative
(80% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Libertarian


You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.


Well, I guess this adds some balance to the board then.

and an...

Economic Conservative
(88% Permissive)

You are best described as a:

Republican

This quiz had some more interesting questions than most on-line quizzes, but they are incorrect in their labeling. Historically, and still in Europe, what this quiz calls "economic conservative" is actually liberalism, i.e., capitalism. It is only in modern America that liberal is a synonym for socialist. F.A. Hayek, Lugwig von Mises, Rothbard, and all the other great capitalist economists considered themselves liberals. By definition, liberal means permissive or open. True economic conservatives are protectionists and those who favor collectivized control of production.

I landed square in the middle of JPII's chest

The older I get, the more I am becoming what I was as a teen during the Viet Nam War - I was a young, earnest and idealistic Christian then; now I am a middle-aged, somewhat jaded, post-evangelical, Orthdox Christian (before becoming Orthodox I would have described myself as very jaded)

There sure are a lot of you folks who seem to be classified as Totalitarians.  Now that's scary!

And why does everyone seem to "exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness?"

Unofficial tally thus far:
5 republicans (most landing on Reagan or Bush)
12 totalitarians (most landed on JPII; although one Darth Vader!!)
4 Democrats >
2 socialists >  most of the dems and soc's landed in and around Gorby
1 social moderate
1 centrist
1 Libertarian (landed on Thos. Jefferson)

I'd love to see the results on a conservative evangelical board and compare it with us Orthodox!

Hey, I know that there are at least two of we moderate centrists on this board, TomS and Myself, it's good that there are a couple of us here to be the voice of reason and common sense in a sea of radicalism Wink

This "politics test" is entertaining.

Fwiw, it said that I was a social (38% permissive) and economic conservative (61% permissive), but fell under the general label of Centrist

New results: You are a Social Liberal (68% permissive) and an Economic Liberal (25% permissive). You are best described as a: Democrat.

Here is another quiz I found there.  "How Religious Are You?"

http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=15545921775938688704

Righteous - You are 75% Religious !

I got 85% the first time.

I guess the lesson, then, is that my turn to the dark side politically has only had a minor negative impact on my religious fervor.

This seems fishy to me, but I don't know how it's scored. I usually get slightly-Left Libertarian on most of my political quizzes. I landed on Hillary Clinton and I am scared out of my wits. She is the biggest shill for... lots of nasty things.

In ye olden days economic liberalism was the very opposite of what it is at the moment. Still is in most of continental Europe.
