Take the Nolan Chart.

I believe the Nolan Chart to be one hundred percent wrong, rigged to a particular Libertarian ideological worldview and a disgrace of political ideological tests. Glenn Beck promoted this test on his television show during a special last week, and argued that folks will be surprised to discover their "inner Libertarian".

Considering the founder of the Nolan Chart is also one of the co-founders of the Libertarian Party, who would have thought that? I did. Despite answering Conservative each time, the test told me that I am a Libertarian first and foremost. BOGUS!

Take the test, and reveal the insane nature of the Nolan Chart.

Also, I wonder if Glenn Beck understands Conservatism at all.....

The original Nolan Chart had 4 extremes, liberal to the left, conservative to the right, libertarian on the top, and authoritarian or statist on the bottom. Just like the following link.

This is still kind of narrow. I once came up with an idea for a chart like this that adds a third dimension for how you feel problems should be resolved. On that I am a lot more conservative.

i dont know, i took the test with 3 good friends, i was libertarian, one friend was conservative and one was a statist according to the chart. if any question was potentially bias we all agreed it was number 3. I think that one is worded poorly.

CORRECTION: I posted the last, i need to correct myself, i meant to say question number 6, 3 was worded great. Id like to see alternative questions based on the same chart however if anyone has them
