I'd like it if people could ask me some questions about what I think on important issues to determine my political stance and ideology.

Would you rather have a country with low taxes or a country with high taxes and numerous welfare programs

High taxes and welfare, though, and I realize it's purposefullu not an option, the utopic situation would be in-between.

The reality is that there is no middle ground. In history, you either have high taxes to sustain the massive welfare spending or you reduce taxes to eliminate the need of health care spending. The low taxes create an environment where businesses can make more money and therefore increase the amount of taxable income over time to where you are getting more tax revenue from low taxes than you would have gotten if you had high taxes. Then you use the surpluses to improve conditions and further your nation.

That isn't a utopia by the way, it all happened under Calvin Coolidge.

And then crash the economy into one of the greatest depressions in worldwide history, which only the government and its massive social spending programs managed to save us from.

You obviously lean left socially and economically, so your ideology is leftism (sigh), and align with the Democratic Party probably. Take a political test if you want

Already took that, 94% with Bernie.

And sigh? Left-wing is the best wing.

To be specific I side with Bernie on every issue except forcing boards of directors to have women, that fracking is bad (I "support" fracking) and that wind and solar should replace nuclear and coal (Bernie says yes, I say no).

Wow, sorry I doubted how far left and libertarian you are. But yeah, that's around anarcho-communism.

On that other one, yes, the center is classified as "liberalism" probably because it's going off of classical liberalism.

Take this quiz: http://www.politicalcompass.org...

Then transfer your dot to this compass (like the other test, up is authoritarianism and down is libertarianism): http://www.candidatex.us...

Anarcho-communism according to that.

Can you share the link?

Wow, sorry I doubted how far left and libertarian you are. But yeah, that's around anarcho-communism.

Right. I'm more radical than Chomsky :(

Chomsky doesn't necessarily focus on politics.

What did you score?

Centrism.

So Liberalism?

On that other one, yes, the center is classified as "liberalism" probably because it's going off of classical liberalism.

So should I hang up the black flag with the circle, hammer and sickle?

You can hang up any flag you like.

An anarcho-communist party will never win any election. What's the closest ideology that could actually work? Left-libertarianism?

The only parties that will ever win an election in the US are the Republicans and Democrats. Your ideology is "on the left" and thus you would, on a realistic scale, affiliate with the democratic party if you actually wanted to "win".

Okay, he's fine. That's the UK Labour Party, they have the ability to gain seats in parliament considering you do have a parliament system, where even third parties could have a go at it.

I oppose the monarchy, the only party (Green) who does that has no (or too few to matter) seats.
