Mo' Money, Mo' Options: What's Your Fiscal Conservative Type

Mo' Money, Mo' Options: What's Your Fiscal Conservative Type

When it comes to money, people lean right for all sorts of reasons. Some are idealists who fundamentally believe in less government and the free-market economy while others see all the proof they need in the success of capitalist countries. OK, general success. Even if today's economic woes tarnish the free market's image, most fiscal conservatives continue to believe in the invisible hand's dexterity.

According to "What Kind of Person Are You…If You Believe in Republican Economic Policy?" on PeopleJam, Republicans can learn a thing or two about themselves by examining economic beliefs. And because few things are more satisfying than having your personality analyzed by four quick questions, I made you a quiz. Come back and tell me if you think it's total nonsense or right on when you're done. To take it, read more.

well it says that i'm a pragmatic idealist and that i'm ruled by a belief that i think that life is inately just and fair. it's kind of true to some extent, although i do know that things aren't always going to be fair and balanced. i kind of wish that everyone got a fair shake out of life and it's events, and that we could all have our own chance to make money, have the same opportunities etc. i'm an optimist, but yet i know that it's NEVER going to be that way in real life

"Supply and demand — the larger the supply, the lower the price, the higher the sales — is the core of Republican economics. Why does this work?" Did anyone put this only works in good times, out of curiousity?

That's really interesting...I had no idea that many people were for the war/still support it. It makes sense now why Obama rarely mentions it anymore and opts for economic/Bush ties in general.

Ze - well there is some merit to that thought, those stats broke it down by party and found that over 80% of pubs said we are winning the war where over 80% of dems said we are losing. However, when they polled independents, the majority still went to we are winning...

Well i guess people in my area have had enough of the war. Most of my family for example supported the war but they deem it a failure because of the way it was executed. They still support the idea of going in and removing Saddam but they don't support the way we have handled the borders, the spending, the terrorist recruiting rhetoric. So I don't know about stats, but I tend to think the overall opinion would be dissatisfaction with the war if you get down to the details. But it is interesting to see so many people think we are "winning" when this isn't even a war or clear win or lose - I am making a huge assumption here, but I would think a majority of those people who think we are winning are just answering along party lines, like empty opinions - but that is just my judgment.

I am more irritated by the comment made by Anonymous in the comments section. My response, and I don't know if they showed it, was: "I support social welfare, with much more regualtion so that there will be less abuse of the program. I think those who have are somehwat responsible to help out those who do not have... would anyone feel that we are not at all responsible? A lot of what a person has is luck. Let's not get into race, genealogy and sex- all major contibuting factors. Not to mention place of origin, citizenship and where you live. The poor should not be ignored, that would be a most uncivilized society...and this kind of comment is what gives the Repub's a bad name with many people. I am (mostly) on the Repub. side, but I am far more democratic when it comes to social welfare it seems..." way to give repubs a bad name, yet again! grr...

For the winning the war %, 19% think the terrorists are winning and 24% say neither side is winning.

Ze - I disagree a bit about the war. The latest polling shows that 52% of the country thinks we are winning that war and 48% say we are safer today that before 9/11. As for whether or not the war will be seen as a good or a bad thing, its split between the margin of error. It seems the people who think we've completely lost are pretty much just politicians of a certain persuasion.

I think the questions are a bit tainted by the goings on of right now. For example, in this economy I don't believe the McCain health care would work, but in good times I would favor the McCain health care plan. The Iraq war is no longer a partisan thing, almost everyone and their uncle thinks it was a bad idea, or at least badly executed. I think the harsh realities make people answer more "democrat" then most people would be in average times.

"You have great faith in the free market and believe Americans should keep as much of their money as possible. After all, people know how to spend their money better than the government." Yep. Pretty much!
