    Take your political compass test and post it here.


    Your political compass

    Economic Left/Right: -2.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.00

    I think mine accurately depicts my views. Almost a fence sitter, leaning left closer to libertarianism. How about yours?

    Here's some of the comparisons they have.



    I do like some of the questions they presented. It'll be interesting to see all of your results.

    *Edit* Make sure you post your first test even if you're embarrassed. Kind of defeats the purpose to take it again to make it toward your liking. You could be surprised.

    And I always thought of myself as a conservative! Turns out I am a libertarian liberal, hehe!

    To post yours, right click on your compass from the website and choose "Copy Image Location"

    Come here, make a post, and click "Insert Image". It's the yellow button with the mountain in it.

    How do you compare to the 2008 nominees?

    Oh, now this is just perfect!

    Hey D,

    You voted for 2 guys that stack up to the right side authoritarian and just a wee bit to the left of the "So-Called" libertarian. Now that's just to funny!

    It should also go a ways towards some "mythbusting" for the elephant crowd and the Obama/Biden/lefty deal. Obama/Biden are socialist but it's in the FDR via Mussolini tradition. Look at the bright side D, you and TOS can attend party functions straight from work as you'll still be wearing "BROWN" shirts!


    Give us a kiss!

    Most Dems are on that side, anyway.


    Here's from their FAQ

    wkmac, if you took the test, how did you score?

    Here's what I have with the information so far. Pretty cool.

    Sorry it's low quality. Only way to get under the max file size.

    Heh, I notice that Over, Tooner, and Moreluck are clustered almost exactly in line with Obama, Hillary, and John Edwards :happy-very:. Newbie, you're a dead ringer for Kucinich (been abducted by a UFO lately?).

    My own position in whacked out leftist libertarian land makes painfully clear what I have long suspected, ie, that I will likely never be well represented in any form of elective government.

    I noticed that too. How ironic.

    And that was funny as hell.

    Hmmmm, first do we really believe Obama, Hillary, and Edwards took this test?

    And second, do we really think Obama, Hillary, and Edwards would publicize their results?

    And how about Hitler, Gandhi and Stalin?
