    Thanks to PiggyBank for providing a link to this political test. Find out if you lean right or left and are an authoritarian or a libertarian.

    I defy anyone to come out more balanced than myself. Yes, I did answer as honestly as I could.

    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: 0.00
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.85

    I'm right in the middle from left/right and slightly more libertarian.
    Who would have thought?
     
  2. this is mine

    Economic Left/Right: 5.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.03

    You're half way to the right edge. I don't know how I came out in the middle but you seem to be a better rightie.

    Pretty much where I thought I'd be.

    You and I are pretty close. So quit arguing with me so much! :D

    Most of what we discuss, we agree with. I think that sometimes you get all worked up over shit that just isn't important - but you do so in the effort to point out where the Left is wrong, not because you generally believe it is an issue.

    I've taken this test before as well as a number of others.
    Results vary so much I wonder how accurate they are.

    Same with on line IQ tests, I've had scores from high 90's to mid 130's.

    That's 3 of us now who are pretty close to the center on the left/right scale who I think of as pretty hard right/conservative. Maybe the test is too shallow to distinguish fiscal conservative from social conservative, etc.

    Or maybe our resident lefties are off the chart to the left?

    Hence the reason why Gabby and co. rarely if ever offer to post an honest scoring on such a test.
