|Political Matrix http://www.goldengiven.net/polimatrix/|
Economic score: -5.68
Social score: -8.35
Your score pegs you as economically leftist and socially far-leftist.
Economic leftists mostly support strict economic controls and programs to assure that the poor are elevated to a higher position in society.
Social far-leftists generally believe that the government has no business enforcing morality on most matters, instead favoring a government that intervenes only when absolutely necessary to avoid direct harm. Many social far-leftists also look negatively on the government's past attitudes toward groups they view as persecuted, although some simply oppose government intervention on utilitarianist grounds.

We believe in personal freedom and economic equality of opportunity. We are a liberal party.
"If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal." -JFK
"Government, no matter what its failures have been in the past, and in times to come, for that matter, the government can be a place where people come together and where no one gets left behind; No one gets left behind; an instrument of good."

|Random fact: Laws outlined in bill descriptions but not specified in game mechanic proposals are known as "role-play laws" or "RP laws" and are recognised under the rules as binding. Constitutional RP laws require a 2/3rds majority, just like game mechanic constitutional laws. Non-constitutional RP laws require a simple majority, just like non-constitutional game mechanic laws.|
