The Ultimate Political Quiz

This political quiz aims to portray the results in ways that others don't - by acknowledging the fact that there are many intersecting and overlapping beliefs between different ideologies.

Any one policy could be supported both by libertarians and authoritarians, right wing and left wing ideologues alike. It is important to understand this, and realize that the political spectrum is not as simple as a left-right model.

  26. Hard drugs such as cocaine and opiates are dangerous, both to the users and those around the users. They are addictive as well, so the "right to choose" argument is weaker than it is for softer drugs like marijuana. On the other hand, making these drugs illegal subsidizes dangerous criminal gangs, and diverts users from the dilute forms (coca leaf tea, smoked opium gum) to the more concentrated forms (crack, heroin).Finally, because discreet drug use is operationally a victimless crime, we require police state tactics in order to have any chance at successful enforcement. Should we change our laws on hard drugs? (Credit to for this question)

What should be done?

  38. It is important for schools to instill religious values.
  39. In the United States, particularly in the south, many people take pride in the history of the Civil War, and of the Confederacy in particular, waving Confederate flags and even wearing them on clothing.
