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.

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.

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?

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.

Laissez-faire economy make plenty of wealth and development, but it would be better if it was a leftist ideology.

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 Friedman for example) will tell you that our government is a Classical Liberal form of Government and both libertarians and conservatives claim to be Classical Liberals (Like Paul Ryan and Milton Friedman). Classical Liberalism is the ultimate ideology of Liberty, in which is the right to live our lives the way we see fit and the confidence that this freedom can not be taken away from us, and Libertarianism is just the grandchild of Classical Liberalism in which the 3 main ideologies of Conservatism, Modern Liberalism, and Libertarianism are all derivatives of this grandfather ideology. Classical Liberalism is a "revolutionary" ideology and is responsible for countless revolutions in the Spanish colonies and in Europe throughout the 1700's and 1800's and has ultimately changed our modern world starting with the United States. This alone is the reason why I believe that Classical Liberalism is the best ideology by far. It has had too much of an impact on our modern world and too much... 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 Centrism
10 Eco-Capitalism

A capitalistic economy as well as protection of the environment is top

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.

12 Libertarianism
13 Monarchism

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

14 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.

15 National Socialism

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

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 Communism

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?

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.

18 Statism

Everything for government Big Brother is all, nothing before.

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 Mutualism

An ideology represents what almost everybody want.

25 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.
