The Nolan Charts says I am Another Black Libertarian


I took Glenn Beck’s quiz today to figure out where I land on the Nolan Chart. I landed firmly in the Libertarian column. I have taken the Nolan Chart quiz several times before and I always come out libertarian. What was a little surprising was how far in the libertarian zone I landed this time around.

If you want to take the quiz, click here.  Be warned their server is as slow as molasses.  After you take the quiz, come back and tell us how you did. If you missed tonight episode of Beck here is the first part, click over to The Right Scoop for parts 2 to 7.

ABL? Certainly more than able (to kick some libbie butt). heh. I saw the show today, thought it was really good but haven't taken the test yet . . .

I took the Nolan quiz. I came up pretty far into Libertarian territory also, but leaning toward the Conservative side. I think I am so fed up with so much government intervention and control that I want to see what the country would be like with very little.

I also came out as libertarian. Even more than you did. The problem is that I didn't agree with any of the choices on two questions, especially the one on foreign policy.

I normally come out a little closer to the conservative side than I did this time around.

My little star landed as far north as one could go.

I came out on the tippy-top of the libertarian corner. Interesting.

That's weird. Mine came out exactly where yours did. I'm kind of glad because I can't figure out how to copy the image on the Nolan Chart page (will steal yours).

These quizzes are a little silly. I question how much one's airy philosophical take on self-contained conceptual questions reflects anything real, such as one's placement and disposition toward established power arrangements.

Fuzzy:

I am getting the feeling that the Nolan Chart makes everyone come out Libertarian, LOL!

I cheated with getting a copy of my chart. First I did a print screen. Then I brought the image into Photoshop and moved the elements around a tad.

American Mom:

I was never a big fan of big government, however over the last year, I am much like you and want even less now.

JACG:

I too had a problem with some of the questions. I felt like I had to choose stronger choices than I really wanted. The Foreign Policy and the gay marriage question didn't really have answers I wanted.

Chris W:

Chris W...pure Libertarian!

Angie Lee:

I am not surprised by your score. You have been strong on individual rights as long as I have known you. Plus, you have a strong grasp of the real Constitutional rights.

How did mit know you are black?

When I took it is didn't say what color I am--and the server was way overloaded.

The yellow star was way up in the upper right corner of an otherwise blank screen.

Beck must be right--two kinds of Libertarian, or maybe small "L" libertarian is what I am, because the last time I read up on what a Libertarian is (according to avowed Libertarians) there were lots of things I object too (I don't remember what the objections were at the moment)>

I took a look at the questions. Either the questions are framed in such a way that it is too slanted or we (conservatives) have way too much common sense.

From the Nolan site:

http://www.thenolanchart.com/

The Nolan Chart website has experienced a major server crash.
Please check back with us in a day or two, to give us time to recover from it.
Thank you for your patience and support.

Turns out I'm also a libertarian, my star was directly below yours, below the word "libertarian", about the same distance that yours was above it.

Angie Lee said...

Aww, shucks. Thanks, Cliff.

I just looked at their website. I honestly never paid them any mind, since I don't vote for a candidate based on the letter designating his party.

I think I'm... libertarian.
