Top Ten Best Ideologies On the Political Spectrum In the USA

Which is the most popular ideology only a small sampling of my favorite.

The Top Ten

1 Libertarian Capitalism

Small government only military for security, personal freedom and free unrestricted economy. Economy and businesses are governing forces. - Dyshpo

The big disadvantage is that it gives those who rise up to the top (often through dishonest or aristocratic means) too much power so they are free to use the workers to fuel their greed. - DieGedankenSindFrei

The ideology that says screw poor people and that disregards reasonable measures to deal with market failure. - Y2K

No. Capitalism has destroyed the environment. It hurts the poor and makes the rich get richer. - GreenDayFan21

The most 'Murican of them all. - SquirrelMonkey

2 Conservatism

If only Dyshpo were right. Alas, modern conservatism is more focused on on denying climate change and trying to stop gay people from getting married than it is on balanced budgets and small government.

I'm a Chinese Conservative.

Very small government no social safety net, low taxes. social changes happen at slow regulated pace. focus on conserving tax revenue and resources. - Dyshpo

This is good

3 Liberalism

I agree with some liberal things such as gay marriage and marijuana legalization however I think they usually go too far for the sake of being "politically correct." - SammySpore

Small government, regulated economy, medium social safety net, liberal use of tax revenue, social changes happen fast. - Dyshpo

An ideology that has been ruined by Tumblr freaks

4 Classical Liberalism

The best liberalism, much better than SJW style liberalism. The people that believe that your gay neighbors can be married and have guns and smoke weed and basically the coolest people ever. - SoldierOfFortune

Classical liberalism is The Enlightenment Era ideology comprised of John Locke, Adam Smith, John Stewart Mill, Thomas Hobbes, and many more in the 1700’s that ultimately influenced (mostly by Locke) our Founding Fathers and inspired them to fight the American Revolution. It is the idea’s of the natural law theory and the social contract: laws of nature in which nature’s God entitled them and the natural rights derivative from those laws which are life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, property, and privacy; in which it is the job of the government to protect those rights and when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends it is the right and duty of the people to throw off such government and establish a new one (These ideas written in our declaration of independence had a huge impact on the actual document). Many of our founding Fathers like Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Samuel Adams were undoubtedly Classical Liberals and even Libertarians (Like Milton ...more - sdoggys

5 Libertarian Socialism

Personal freedom as long as no one harmed with big government geared mainly towards public welfare. - Dyshpo


If anyone is interested in the success of Anarchism (libertarian socialism) and its principles, read this:

6 Social Democracy

Works only on an extremely small scale. Almost all of the "countries" who practice it are not only smaller than most US states, they are in fact smaller than large US counties. Sweden for example has fewer people than just Los Angeles County alone.

Best countries in the world are all social democracies.

7 Monarchism

Shod be numbr 1 all the others don't work as good as this 1.

8 Communism

Communism has never worked, and never will - ryanrimmel

2 communist countries basically fell in 4 months. USSR and Yugoslavia. - AStumpedHuman

Still better than trash called Anarchism. - 50

Education should be free

A society where people share the world. - DieGedankenSindFrei
