Wait a minute...labels mean nothing nowadays. The words "liberal" and "conservative are misnomers when you are referring to politics today. Why? Because the people who originally took the word liberal to describe their ideology were actually leftists. But their views have very little to do with being "liberal" in the classic sense of the word. When our Founding Fathers broke from England, they were considered very liberal (maybe even radical back then). They were the first who believed that not only were all men created equal but that we all have inalienable rights that the government cannot take away. This was at a time when most governments had always governed from the top down. Our FFs thought the people should control the government. Radical idea! So, a true liberal (in the classic meaning) is someone who believes in freedom, equality under the law, individual rights and liberties above the collective, and limited government. But those are actually characteristics of people who call themselves conservative these days. Those on the left today believe the government should be able to tell people what to do if it is for their "own good". The left likes big centralized government. The left also wants to confer special rights on certain groups in order to supposedly make up for previous wrongs. At any rate, the point is that those in power on the left are not liberal at all and it makes me wonder why people who believe in equality and freedom identify with those leaders.

I think that I wouldn't vote for anyone that's into voting just like I wouldn't give my credit card number to a "will work for food" card-board sign magician.

I've offered jobs to everyone of them but for whatever reason they had to get a new magic-marker or new ballot.

;)

I just did the survey again to see if my opinion changed any over the years... and I guess fro mthe viewpoint of an American I'm ´probably nothing but a dirty socialist :laughing:

but what bothered me again - the same as when I first did it - was the fact that they were all and only black or white answers... A or B... Right or Wrong

a terrible simplification that doesn't do the actual problems any justice

http://www.politicalcompass.org is probably much more accurate in such an assessment

I never bothered with this before seeing as certain issues described in the test don't really affect Canadians (gay marriage, for instance) so the results would be affected because of this. Then I decided to do it anyway... just for fun. :grin:
