Highest ranking dimension: Individualist

You believe in the right of an individual to "be themself" in thought and deeds. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a politician with the nerve to tell people when it comes to controlling others, they should mind their own business. This may be because you enjoy a diversity of experiences and don "t get offended easily. It may also be because you"ve seen people be persecuted. Others may disagree with you because they feel a right to protect what they see as community values. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they underestimate people"s need for sta bility and safety.
Second highest ranking dimension: Small Government

You believe in a government that keeps order but otherwise stays out of the way. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a government with the courage to take on some of the "sacred cows" of government spending. This may be because you have been irked by how much you pay in taxes. It may also be because you feel that excessive government support programs reward those with no initiative. Others may disagree with you because they see some people as having the system stacked against them. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is because they find it difficult to maintain the "tough love" approach when their friends and supporters ask for help.
Combined statement:

Based on your answers, you would prefer a state for pioneers, innovators and rugged individualism.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
- Hilaire Belloc -

Based on your answers, the best government, in your opinion is the one that gives most of the control, freedom and responsibility to the people.

Highest ranking dimension: Big Government
You believe in the power of government to make life better. You may have felt that what the country really needs is for the government to get serious about the many problems that people face. This may be because you have seen the system break down and know people who have fallen through the cracks. It may also be because you feel that our society is at risk our communities need better protection from internal and external dangers. Others may disagree with you because they are focused on what government does wrong, rather than what it does right. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they create programs that solve one problem but create others.

Second highest ranking dimension: Literalist
You believe that "good", "evil", "justice" and "injustice" exist in the world and people need to take a stand. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a politician with a functioning moral compass. This may be because you have seen what happens when "everything is permitted". It may also be because society is being undermined by people for whom numbers are the measure of everything. Others may disagree with you because they tend to rationalize everything, and don "t have a vision for a better society . When politicians of your type make mistakes it is because they just can"t deal with others who don"t share their faith or beliefs.

Combined statement:
Based on your answers, the most important role for government, in your view, is creating a just society.

ighest ranking dimension: Autocratic
You believe in strong leadership. You may have felt that what the country really needs is for someone to really take charge and break out of the inertia. This may be because you have strong opinions of which you are confident, and like to see political leaders who are like you. It may also be because you are suspicious of the ability of groups, especially large groups to make tough decisions. Others may disagree with you because they trust people less than they trust the "rules of procedure", because they have issues with authority, or because that they feel that "government just doesn "t listen." When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they try to fit a simple solution on a complex problem.

It sounds like it's calling me a communist, yet the combined statement: "Based on your answers, you are happy with the idea of a powerful leader running a big state - someone who can make the trains run on time," pretty much says I'm a fascist.

My highest ranking was Big Government, my second highest was Individualist, and my combined statement was: "Based on your answers, the best state for you is one where people "s basic needs are well looked after and people are free to pursue creative and fulfilling lives."

I really agree with that.

I was, also, more autocratic than democratic, more big government than small government, more individualist than collectivist, more wide focus than narrow focus, and (barely) more antropocentric than ecocentric.

I agree... but that's what it said.

I mean, there was once a time that the Republican party was in the North East and very strong in California too, and was dominated by New England industrialist... but the socially apathetic Rockefeller Republican is a thing of the past.
