    Since we've received an influx of new members, I thought it might be interesting for us to take a few of the standard tests on our political affiliations and see where we end up.

    Let's start with the most commonly used and reputable one online, the Political Compass test.

    By the way, for those that don't know, you can post an image of the compass graph by saving it onto your system, uploading it onto an image host like Photobucket, and then copying and pasting the URL here and putting it inside image code. ()
