    I'm not a political genius, nor do I care to be one. However I scored 80% on the test, making me "very liberal" according to the website. I'm quite sure that by normal social definitions, I'm not "liberal".

    However, it does make sense. For example, I promote the libertarian view that capital punishment should be an opt-out if you have an issue with it. I.e. give people the choice to do what they want, and what they see fit. In the strong literary sense, this is the liberal argument. However it clearly doesn't fit in with the general social image of liberalism. What I'm trying to say is that liberalism in the sense of the current political ideology is clearly mis-named, as it can be extremely totalitarian and controlling on peoples liberties.
