Also, i'm concerned that no world leader, or anyone I've seen is in the purple quadrant. And I'm trying to wrap my head around who would be there, someone who really likes social programs, but that doesn't fund them?

Or would it be someone who doesn't fund non-social program governement spending like the military and nasa.

If not all four quadrants are bing filled regularly then I have my concerns about the exam.
it's not like it's a concrete assessment of where you should stand on all major issues, just points in the direction that you're most likely at. and while this isn't perfect it's one of the better ones i've seen.

it's true, there should be a strong correlation between liberalism in social and economic issues, but that doesn't mean that everybody follows that mantra. look at Ron Paul, he's an enormous proponent for a laissez-faire market but he's very liberal socially at the same time.

and no, there shouldn't be an equal distribution throughout the plot. inasmuch the same way as Democrats outnumber Republicans.

right but how do you mary economic conservatism with pro-liberalisation? I gave some examples are those off base, because I have no idea who Bojarski is.

but even still, we're talking statistics here, and on a normal curve, you're going to have a normal distribution.

It should be relativly equal because while parties mean different things, and are package deals that win based on marketing strategies, political philosophy isn't, especially when its as disjointed at the questioning was here.

I'm still not coming to grips with what purple would look like in practicum.

Probably not many. That's why they'd go in the purple quadrant, the zone for conservative values but very few laws or government programs.

yeah but the thing is, you have to be pro-social programs so I think it would be someone who has to pull money from defense spending and prison systems and the like.

I don't know **** about the Swiss but if they have socialized medicine and free college tuition I'd imagine it would be them.

How would being in the right-wing, libertarian corner of the graph mean you're pro-social programs? I would think it would be pretty much the opposite.
