Yeah i know that these tests are often way off, especially with these Agree/Disagree questions, but its quite fun anyway. The trick is that the result doesn't come in a left to right axis, but there is also a libertarian/authoritarian axis.

Here is an example of the axis:

Anyway, my results were:

Economic Left/Right: -6.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.56

Its from http://www.politicalcompass.org.

My results were:
Economic Left/Right: -10.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.41
http://www.political...g...0&soc=-4.41

I'm totally serious, BTW. :grin:

ARGUMENT FROM CREATION, a.k.a. ARGUMENT FROM PERSONAL INCREDULITY (I)
(1) If evolution is false, then creationism is true, and therefore God exists.
(2) Evolution can't be true, since I lack the mental capacity to understand it; moreover, to accept its truth would cause me to be uncomfortable.
(3) Therefore, God exists.

its an old site i believe, been threads in here on it before. besides, the two-dimensional left-right and liberal/authoritarian isnt flawless in the analysis of the world.

on a local scale i am a moderate right-wing/liberal with typical scandinavian social-democratic values. but on a global scale thats practically a sort of socialist who uses the marked to make life the best it can be for its people.

Economic Left/Right: -6.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.33

A little bit? You're almost right in the middle... Now as opposed to me, here's what I got:

Economic Left/Right: -9.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.69

http://www.political...g...0&soc=-7.69

Seems to fit my view pretty decently, yeah. I'm sure I did this test before though, and I came out around the same area.

http://www.political...g...0&soc=-7.69

Economically left -7.00
Socially libertarian -7.69

However, I think some of these questions are kinda skewed, so I took this test as well:
http://politics.beas.../scripts/survey
I ended up right next to Red Ken Livingstone, the mayor of London.

Another test:
http://www.okcupid.com/politics

Roll your eyes. Yeah. One of those sites. Well, I found it in a Google search and I think it's fairly decent (although the last page is just plain dodgy). I ended up in Socialist country, Economically 0% permissive, Socially 86% permissive. Yes, it does have a US bias, and yes, in the US I'm about as far left as they come, so yeah, take it, post results, etc.
According to this I'm near Gandhi and Hilary Clinton (Although she shouldn't be down there).

Economic Left/Right: -3.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.95

I don't think that this represents my personal opinion very well, as it's far more complex than anything this test could have shown. Besides, some of the questions were too extreme... so no sane person could have obviously agreed/disagreed on them. I have the feeling that this test generally puts people a bit too far on the left side anyway.
It was a fun thing to do though :p

1 left/right -7.2004 (-0.4334)
2 pragmatism +0.4639 (+0.0279)

got that on your political poll MSpencer. about one mouse away from that ken dude. i prefer to be on the pragmatic side instead of the idealistic side. idealistic is in politics sometimes not a good thing.

Economic Left/Right: 4.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.79

I still say this test is screwy... especially in the economic sense. The questions are phrased in a way a lawyer would state them, asking questions in a yes/no manner when it needs an explanation in order to make sense.

1 left/right -1.0038 (-0.0604)
2 pragmatism +6.8317 (+0.4112)

This one my social and economic views running in opposite directions seem to label me as a moderate :p

So was Stalin and look what happened ;) .

My point exactly :p

That tens of thousands of people were executed, and countless thousands more exiled to gulags in Siberia and never released? Or that the country racked up enormous debts on an international scale never before seen? Or is it the shiny buildings that you admired? Yeah, the ones which were for the upper 2% of the party aristocracy. Those that weren't, well... it's tough to be content when you have a lovely theatre down the street and you have no food... Or the blatant racism? "United forever in friendship and labor," except the Ukrainians... and those stupid Cossacks...
I would certainly never want to associate myself with Stalin...

Or a really very nice corporate pawn. I think the second test has a better axis than Libertarian/Authoritarian (But pragmatism/idealism doesn't really cover it...), but I don't think it does the economic things right. Either that or you strongly agreed with some leftist ideals, and only slightly with the rightist ones which you had agreed with in the other test, thus resulting in a skewed result.

I'd say the first one. Secondly, I agree with you about the Cossacks Traitorous swine. So glad Churchill shipped them back to Stalin for execution when the war was done

Proving that you're nothing but an ignorant racist. Apparently, some people just don't have the right to live due to their ethnic background?
You've just proven my point.

He's talking about the Cossacks and Russians etc. that fought with the Nazis for various reasons, not the Cossacks in their entirety. Many Cossacks remained loyal to Russia/the Soviet Union during the Great Patriotic War/WWII.

And you're a spineless defender of the murderous autocrat. Remember, instead of taking a hard line against the illegal state sponsored murder of individuals, we could always just agree with them!
You're worse. He is what he is, but you accept that, and make yourself a Neville Chamberlain.
