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

Conservatism by Dyshpo's definition has the weakness of being way too conformist, while social liberalism promotes illogical government policies. Choosing right-wing policies does not need to mean discouraging social change. Right-libertarianism combines cultural freedom with sensible economic (and sometimes even social) government policies.

Has never successfully been done. Nordic countries have the free market aspect perfect, but are struggling to maintain their social welfare. USA is the closest, but currently held back by the massive economic and regulatory strain of the government.

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

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

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.

The ideology that doesn't focus on race at all but rather the content of ones character. Which is how it should be.

Man cannot change or control the climate or the Earth. We are NOT gods.

I'm a conservative, but FRICK nearly everything the american right stands for.

3 Social Democracy

No ideology would work on a large scale anyways, overpopulation is the reason some places have no recourses, anyways, Social Democracy actually works really well, think about it, the Nordic Model says they are a social democracy, and countries like Norway, Sweden and Denmark are all developed, free and safe countries. Not only does it support the needs of human nature, it also betters the lives of unfortunate citizens which is really good. We don't overly support capitalism, but we also don't over support socialism either because we are a mixture of the two. Think about it, instead of abandoning capitalism thinking it has no advantages, why don't you fix it to improve capitalism?

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.

The best ideology in my opinion. A mixed economy(Mix of Capitalism and Socialism) and social liberties are great. I mean the countries with best living conditions and happiest people(Nordic countries) practice Social Democracy.

Best countries in the world are all social democracies.

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.

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

5 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."

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

A mix between right wing classical liberalism and social liberalism with capitalism and secularism that's opposed to Islam and islamism takes the top spot, that's how you develop a country for good

6 Libertarian Socialism

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

Liberation from the rulers, and from the bosses.

7 Right Wing Populism
8 Democratic Socialism
9 Eco-Capitalism

It protects the environment.

10 Centrism
The Contenders
11 Socialism

Very big and robust social safety net everyone pays 49% in taxes all industry is run and owned by labor. Classless no poor or rich just workers.

United forever in friendship and labor.

This one is the best

12 Libertarianism
13 Monarchism

A king and his Subject should be the same relationship as a father to his son

14 National Socialism

I agree with some of their policies but not about the jews.

15 Anarcho-Capitalism

State run by the one with most resources or wealth absolutely anything goes selling people or selling organs.

Free the people. Free the market.

16 Traditionalism

All matters of state have been set with precedent only the most senior get to lead no social changes except by act of God.

17 Statism

Everything for government Big Brother is all, nothing before.

18 Communism

Unfortunately this cannot exist. This ideology would be amazing if it could work, but the ideology assumes that people are morally good, and in doing so, is extremely vulnerable to corruption, censorship, and large-scale dictatorships.

Wait, what about russia and china, two nations that were poor nations before and after revolution they became the worlds most important countries besides the US, who had developed for more than 100 years more than they did and who won against the US in the space race with the secound hand scientists?

Communism works and is positive for the progress of humanity. Unlike capitalism, it has not killed over 2 billion and Stalin was a fascist in red. Humans are not greedy by nature and an altruistic culture is all that is needed.

Everybody should be equal, capitalism is the richer gets richer while the poorer gets poorer. We vote for communism because humans shouldn't be selfish and we should remove this destructive nature

19 Progressivism
20 Anarcho-Socialism

Only laws protect personhood and personal property, tiny government no borders everything is run by collective will.

This is an oxymoron. Socialism requires bigger government. Far from anarchy

21 Anarcho-Communism

Oxymoron. On one hand, the state controls all means of production. On the other hand, there is no state.

22 Individualist Anarchism
23 Populism
24 Marxism

A philosophy that takes us away from shallow moralizing and utopianism, but which made communism credible, acknowledging the non-linearity of progress and how different systems with be right for different places at different points in their development.

25 Democratism
