Please help me with Dr. Milsted's Quiz

I have put a new Political Quiz on my blog.

It is located on the sidebar and it is called the 2D Quiz. I ask ALL of my readers to please take this quiz and post the results as a comment to this thread. I am REALLY curious where everyone comes out with this short political quiz.

My expectation is Robert Enders, Debbie, and Bartleby will all come out as traditional Libertarians.

My guess is that I will come out as a moderate Libertarian.

I really want to know where you come out on this. I am especially interested in Mike Kole and Andrew Kaduk... I think you will both register as moderate Libertarians...

Mike Sylvester

P.S. It is a short quiz and I would really appreciate it if you took three minutes to take the quiz and post the results.

I come out as a "Moderate Libertarian" by this quiz.

Not a surprise to anyone...

Karena Sylvester said...

I came out as a moderate libertarian too and Mike wasn't even standing over me influencing my answers!

No suprise..
"Description
Hey! We need you in Congress! Or at least in your state legislature. At least I think so.

Join the Libertarian Party and we'll put you on the ballot. What? Not ready to run yourself? Well, join the party anyway and put someone of like mind into office. It is high time we kicked the envy-mongers, busy-bodies and angst-worshippers out of office.

Be forewarned that the Libertarian Party currently far more radical than you. It is likely that you disagree strongly with many of their positions. However, there is a move afoot to fix this. "

Should I run for congress?

LOL

Oh it was Moderate Libertarian

Doug H. Sec, Lib Pty AC said...

To All,

I came out as a Moderate Libertarian, exactly in the center one "hex" above Centrist.

I think it may be my "radical view" that everyone should serve their nation in the military for at least two (2) years that pushed me away from being an extreme Libertarian.

I am somewhat disappointed that I came out the same as Mike. We really differ on some issues and I've always thought of myself as "more" Libertarian than he is.

Guess not.. Oh well...

Respectfully,

Doug Horner

I came out centrist conservative

Jeff F said...

I came out a Moderate social conservative, which is pretty close.

The question topics seem out of date, and some of them irrelevant.

I came out as a Moderate Libertarian. It looked like I was at about 91% on the personal freedom scale and only 64% on the economic freedom scale. I realize this puts me dangerously close to being in the Liberal zone, so I may need to be exposed to more intensive prosthelizing before I am fit to run for office as a Libertarian.

John Good said...

Moderate Libertarian

Craig said...

I came out as a Blogofascist.

I'm not sure what that means.

Debbie said...

Okay, I came out as (drum roll please) "Radical Libertarian." I'm shocked I tell you, just shocked. Surely that doesn't make me a crazy anarchist does it Mike?

Doug! If you're going to take something from me by force please take my money over two years of my life. Yeah I know taking my money is also taking my life since I have to work to earn it, but still, advocating for 2 years of slavery to the state? Or are you just kidding?

Oh, and Coffeebig person, my quiz description said: "Hey! We need you in Congress! Or at least in your state legislature. Join the Libertarian Party and we'll put you on the ballot. What? Not ready to run yourself? Well, join the party anyway and put someone of like mind into office. It is high time we kicked the envy-mongers, busy-bodies and angst-worshippers out of office."

Tim Zank said...

moderate libertarian too....

Austin said...

I was a Libertarian Leaning Centrist, on the border of conservative centrist.

Jeff Pruitt said...

Libertarian-leaning centrist, right on the liberal-libertarian border. Basically what I expected...

Doug said...

Moderate libertarian.

Jeff B said...

I came out as a Conservative Centrist, but I'm actually a flaming social liberal and fiscal conservative. Don't get into it, I know those two labels are at odds. ;-)

Bob Uecker said...

I'm a Moderate Libertarian, toward center left. Where were the Axis and Allies questions? Love of A&A seems to be a common Libertarian quality.

William Larsen said...

I came out as a moderate Libertarian.

Andrew Kaduk said...

Radical Libertarian here.

A notch or two inside the libertarian zone... but I may have answered a couple questions stronger libertarian based on the phrasing.

Buckeye Kevin said...

Moderate--no suprise. The party is growing up and evolving. Became a life member as a result of what I saw in Portland. I'm "all in".

Rex Bell said...

I scored as a radical libertarian, but I don't consider myself a radical. I'm willing to make compromises, as long as the compromises move things towards libertarianism instead of away from it. I guess if the old quiz or the new quiz allowed discussion or explanation, they wouldn't be short, would they?

Mike Kole said...

I scored radical Libertarian. This may surprise some of you, but I look at it like this: I am an idealist, but I try to advance my ideas in realistic ways. I know that the radical views I hold dear are unlikely to be embraced by the populace, so I advocate an incremental implementation of my end-point positions.

J. A. Thomas said...

No big surprise...Moderate Libertarian. I've known that for a while but maybe others didn't. Oh well, not as radical as I thought.

Anonymous said...

Mike J. took the quiz and scored "Radical Libertarian" which really was no surprise, but I recognize that any change will happen incrementally. As long as we are moving incrementally towards more freedom, that is fine, because we have incrementally slipped into our current situation and the American people are not responsible enough to survive a radical change, in my humble opinion...

Robert Enders said...

I was near the tip. I based my answers on what I thought I had a remote chance of accomplishing as state rep within my first term.

That being said, I have a question for Doug. What possible foreseeable military contigency would require a draft in this age of Predator drones and ICBM's?

Scott Wise said...

I came out as a Moderate Libertarian. That was not very surprising. I wonder how different the results would be if 1 word were changed/added/removed from many of the answer choices.
