Political Ideology

Brooke Scholbe

The spectrum as a whole: Left vs. Right

The political spectrum is a line in which lie a citizen's typology. This typology is a citizen's classification based on their ideas values and beliefs. Starting from left are the categories: Far left, liberals, moderates, conservatives, and far right. The citizens who test on more towards the left of the spectrum tend to be more democratic, they want government control, government involvement and protection of civil rights and things like that. Meanwhile, on the right side, are your republicans, the ones who believe in free markets, limited government control, the exact opposite of the democrats. Each side has different values towards different issues of america today.

Left Liberitarian

Stresses individual freedom and social justice, maintains natural resources and support private property if so under the condition that recompense is offered to the local community. Being toward the left side of the spectrum i tend to be a democrat.

I was shown to have a strong support for activist government with conservative attitudes on many social issues. i am very racially diverse – this is the only typology group that is “majority-minority.” When it ok this test I was put into the bolded section called "The Faith and Family Left" in which I generally favor increased government aid for the poor even if it adds to the deficit and believe that government should do more to solve national problems. I oppose same-sex marriage and legalizing marijuana and say religion and family are at the center of my life.

My take on issues of Today

For these issues in america today, i tend to lean more on the democratic side. The democratic take on immigration is that we should secure our borders, and that immigrants add vitality and vigor to our country and economy, we should develop fair rules for letting people stay. As oppose to the republican view which is that immigrants have a positive and negative effects on the U.S., and that immigrants drain our education and healthcare. The other chart displays the takes on minimum wage in the U.S., me, more on the democratic side believe that the minimum wage should be raised to a livable standard, in contrast to republicans who feel businesses will hire fewer people if minimum wage is raised and they'll have to pay more.
