Economic Conservative

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!

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.

First, Asteriktos post is an expression that is usually interpreted to imply himself. Otherwise, it would end with "our hearts".

The thread warmed my heart as well. It is a fact and "Nope" makes no difference.

McCarthy is not a good example for you. Nixon would be a little better. Your safest bet for a recognizable person is Reagan.
