    The Political Compass - Test

    The post about the way USMB "leans" made me have to stop and think about where I actually fall in the Political Spectrum, since I seem to embrace facets of ALL of the parties,

    and I thought it would be interesting to see just where we all fall on this,

    SO, if a Mod could figure out how to label the choices in a poll for this, I'd sure appreciate it!

    Take the test, then come back and select the answer that best describes your results!

    I'm so close to smack daub in the middle, it's almost spooky...

    Economic Left/Right: -0.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.97

    NEXT!

    I've come to loathe this silly test.

    I outright reject the premise of several of the questions and a few of them are so vague I don't know what to think about them.

    Oh, I assign no major VALIDITY to it, I'm just wEndering how any of us fare on it.

    But, I can respect that you might now want to do it, AGAIN! :lol:

    It's weird to me, because even though some of my viewpoints have changed, I STILL keep ending up at the center...

    Damn near Nelson Mandela, actually. Kinda surprising to me. I did something similar to this in college and it appears I've moved farther left since then; Not what I expected.

    Now the question is, where does Nader fall on this thing?

    [edit] It is kinda silly though. One has to wonder how often they're really answering the question, and how often people just give the answer they believe they're "Supposed" to give.

    Actually, I've consistently scored a couple clicks south of Milton Friedman, on the several times I've played along with the goofy questions.
