When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?
Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
I lean libertarian on many issues, so the answers available do not fit my outlook. Although there are exceptions, I believe in minimal government with regards to economic matters, social matters, and foreign policy. A government that is too active in those areas can micro-manage the lives of its citizens and overspend. On immigration, I believe that a country should vet those that enter into its country and have a citizenship process that is not overburdensome. I am opposed to an open-borders policy.
