I am a political realist. MUWAHAHAHA!

Based on your answers, you are most likely a realist. Read below to learn more about each foreign policy perspective.

Realist

Realists…
  • Are guided more by practical considerations than ideological vision
  • Believe US power is crucial to successful diplomacy - and vice versa
  • Don't want US policy options unduly limited by world opinion or ethical considerations
  • Believe strong alliances are important to US interests
  • Weigh the political costs of foreign action
  • Believe foreign intervention must be dictated by compelling national interest

Historical realist: President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Modern realist: Secretary of State Colin Powell

If you put in no answers at all and submit the quiz, you will automatically be labelled an "Isolationist". hehehehe

I am a realist according to this obviously slanted quiz. Take the Viet Nam question as an example. You are given 3 choices that support one view point, but the only other option is one thats so far out in right field that only an idiot would choose it.

I wonder how many would have selected the answer Vietnam was, a political failure from its inception, poorly thought out and poorly pursued.

I will have to go back and see if amazingly enough, 95% of the people turned out to be realist.

Isolationist

The term isolationist is most often used negatively; few people who share its beliefs use it to describe their own foreign policy perspective. They believe in "America first." For them, national sovereignty trumps international relations. Many unions, libertarians, and anti-globalization protesters share isolationist tenets.

Isolationists…

Are wary of US involvement in the United Nations
Oppose international law, alliances, and agreements
Believe the US should not act as a global cop
Support trade practices that protect American workers
Oppose liberal immigration
Oppose American imperialism
Desire to preserve what they see as America's national identity and character


Historical isolationist: President Calvin Coolidge

Modern isolationist: Author/Commentator Pat Buchanan
---------------------------------------

Makes sense considering the fact that I think the best foreign policy is to stay out of foreign countries.

After calculating many trigonometric, polynomial equations, and dividing the result by the power of beer, this is the result I was given:

Based on your answers, you are most likely a liberal. Read below to learn more about each foreign policy perspective.

Liberals…

* Are wary of American arrogance and hypocrisy
* Trace much of today's anti-American hatred to previous US foreign policies.
* Believe political solutions are inherently superior to military solutions
* Believe the US is morally bound to intervene in humanitarian crises
* Oppose American imperialism
* Support international law, alliances, and agreements
* Encourage US participation in the UN
* Believe US economic policies must help lift up the world's poor

Historical liberal: President Woodrow Wilson
Modern liberal: President Jimmy Carter

Apparently, however, I answered the Israel question in a Neo-con-esque manner. Yaay Israel!

I didn't answer any of the questions as there was no answer with which I agreed. If there was an answer, "We need to kick their ass", then I would have taken it. I guess that makes me a "Domineering Bastard" who wants to rule the world!!!

Inmountains, do you actually know how to read?

Terrorists can't be negotiated with. They must be killed or captured. "They hate us" because they - Muslim extremists - hate freedom. In the post-9/11 world, the US cannot wait for "imminent" threats. It must aggressively - even preemptively and unilaterally, if necessary - wipe out terrorist networks and the governments that support them. At the same time, the US can work to emasculate terrorism by aggressively promoting the cause of freedom and democracy around the world.
