This site has been relaunched. It had deviated from its purpose. It will now only focus on concepts, not individual people, although certain concepts will use people only as examples not in judgement. Many of the old posts will be rewritten but in different light. All opinions will be respected. This site is not meant for any debate but leave comments if you desire. If you are looking for a specific topic look to the right, scroll down, and click on label that is closest to your research.

American Political Views

Below you can see your results from the two views/surveys from the other two pages.  All you have to do is use your two scores like an X and Y axis.  The Political view is your X axis.  You economic view is your Y axis.  This is not scientific results.  But it is pretty close.  Notice where I am (Hamilton Big Blue).  Now you know where you stand compared to me and famous leaders.  You can click on it to get a bigger picture.  You may also copy it anytime you want.  Keep in mind these could possibly change from time to time when new/more information about a person comes out.  By the way this looks so much better in WORD, not Paint.

Quadrant I (top right):
  • High government influence either by choice or necessity, based on religious affiliations, moral standards, considered more conservative. Believers in a more free market system. Yellow area though borders monarchist ideas.
Quadrant II (top left)
  • Less government influence. Believes in a free market and societal attitudes, considered individualist and libertarian. Gray area though borders chaos.
Quadrant III (bottom left)
  • Less government influence when it comes to regulation of society but control over montary systems. Considered to be highly liberal but also believers in more of a command economy. Gray are borders radicalism.
Quadrant IV (bottom right)
  • High government influence either by choice or necessity based on societal needs. Believes government intervention is needed for humanitarian reasons. Considered to be socialist and believers in a command economy. Yellow area borders communist dictatorships.

From  the chart above you can see why/how some elections turned out the way they did.  But first here are some other explanations:
  1. The circles you see are pretty much the 6 main political parties of the US and where they would more than likely be compared to each other, not including those independents (which I am, just a very conservative one).  Libertarian, Constitution, Republican tend to be the "conservatives" and the Green, Democrat, Socialist tend to be "liberals".  See point #2.
  2. In reality there are no left-wing nuts or right-wing fanatics.  So this does not really measure that.
  3. The people on this chart are:  in the yellow from top to bottom,  Benito Mussolini, Adlof Hitler, Josef Stalin; in the green, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, John Boehner, Tim, GW Bush, GHW Bush, Mitt Romney, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin; in the blue, George Washington, Ron Paul, Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Joe Biden, Hilary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi; in the pink, Ralph Nader, Denis Kucinich.  If you want more then ask.
  4. Those outside the circles are really outside American politics and should probably stay outside of America.
  5. Most independents would tend to be where Thomas Jefferson would be, and the majority of the rest would be leaning towards Reagan on one side and Clinton on the other.  Now you know why they were elected twice with popularity.  They played the center very well.
  6. You can see why Bush and Gore were split equally in 2000.  They are equidistant from the center and very polarized in there views causing feelings of disenfranchisement on some.  And you can see the few votes Nader "stole" from Gore with the slight overlap.
  7. You can see why some Democrats are compared to "socialists" since many ideas overlap, especially Obama compared to Clinton (either).  But no where near close to the ideas of Stalin who took the ideas of Utopian society and ruined them.
  8. Both major parties are equidistant from Hitler which is why both will be compared to him in times of dissent or elections, although neither are true, Pelosi being the exception. :)
  9.  And you can see why Nader, Pelosi, Bachmann, Kucinich, and Paul will never be president.
  10. Although Democrats are right in the middle, that does not mean they are correct.  They just believe in a perfect balance of between government control and economic freedom.  American values though are more like Jefferson and Washington, both of whom are not "centered".
  11. Quadrant 1 (top right) believe in economic freedom and have government control over moral issues (whether being right or wrong).
  12. Quadrant 2 (top left) believe in economic and moral freedoms.
  13. Quadrant 3 (bottom left) believe in government control over economics but moral freedoms.
  14. Quadrant 4 (bottom right) believe in government control over economic and moral issues.
Hopes this helps.  If any other questions, let me know.  Have fun.
