    After I took this test, I did comparisons with other demographics and found that almost all where left of center. This isn't surprising because the youth of today are more liberal on social issues. See where you score, it is an interesting test and I scored more conservative than on other tests.

    My Political Views

    I am a left social moderate: Left: 5.24, Libertarian: 0.48

    On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: -4.1

    Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: -4.07

    Wow. You were wrong about everything. Did you feel you should just stop taking the test at some point?

    These are always interesting, but I always come up with the same:

    You are a center-left social libertarian.
    Left: 1.81, Libertarian: 6.6


    Too bad the Libertarians don't like left-leaners anymore.

    Which is too bad, since my left score is almost exactly in line with the average of all quiz takers as shown. Assuming the average is accurate, which it may not be. Online quizzes are easy enough to game if you're so inclined.

    You are a centrist moderate social libertarian.
    Right: 0.36, Libertarian: 2.21

    I wasn't too surprised with the libertarian result. A couple of the questions were tough for me to answer because they were so broad.


    Foreign Policy:

    On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: 3.49
    Culture:

    Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: 1.73

    I've taken that sillly test numerous times and reject the premises of several of the questions.

    Still, if I play along, my score consistently shows up a couple of clicks south of Milton Freidman.

    That said, just because a bunch of leftists take it on the interwebs, that doesn't speak for America as a whole...Thread title is bunk.
