About This Quiz

When it comes to America and today's society, there seems to be a lot of lines that have been drawn in the sand. If you say that you are a liberal, then people think a certain something of you, and the same goes for if you say that you are conservative. But what does all of that mean? Some people are really conservative financially but are liberal when it comes to social issues, and then there are some that are the other way around.

The fact of the matter is, there's so much of how we identify ourselves, whether it be politically or another way, it comes from our view of who we are, and as we all know sometimes, that doesn't jive with reality. A conservative tends to believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values, a strong national defense, and that a government's primary role is to give people enough freedom so they can pursue their own goals. Does all of that make sense to you, and what does that all mean anyway? Take this quiz to find out, and we promise if you come up liberal we won't tell anyone.
