    Wow, I've seen a lot of political tests in my time, but those are two of the most "loaded" one's I've seen. The wording of them was bizarre.

    I think there's some really simple tests out there that don't have such loaded language. I'll look for some.

    Without having taken a test, I'm a fiscal and social conservative with libertarian tendencies in many areas. My faith in God influences me in many areas as well, although I wouldn't call myself a "moralist" or be in favor of a theocracy.

    Test One:
    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: 0.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.46

    (That means I am very slightly right economically, and nealy halfway down socially).

    For what it is worth, though, I have changed view points on so many things in my life. There is a time I would have been much, MUCH farther right economically, and probably much closer to fascism than libertarianism.

    Further, I plan on changing view points again in my life. I am of the opinion that politics, life and society are in a state of relative flux. I would consider it slightly unhealthy to stick to a single view point or party and ride that one dogmatically.

    I will never in my life be a card carrying party member.

    The first one had some wording issues, but I answered the best I could. Will take the second now.

    The PoliticalCompass one is supposed to be pretty accurate, which is why I posted it.

    The other one, the only reason I posted it was because it showed you (and gave you coding to post the results).....

    nice polls:

    Your true political self:
    You are a

    Social Liberal
    (63% permissive)

    and an...

    Economic Liberal
    (28% permissive)

    You are best described as a:

    Democrat (28e/63s)


    You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness. loc: (49, -82)
    modscore: (17, 38)

    LOL test two:

    "15. If I'm dating someone I like to know where they are and what they're up to at all times."

    What does that have to do with the tea in China?

    I know. Test 2 aint all that great. Like I said, I posted it up there because it allowed you to grab the results and post them in the board as a table/image...

    But I cant seem to get that to work, which was pretty much the only reason I used that test...

    Here I am:

    The Political Compass
    Economic Left/Right: 5.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.49

    So, solidly to the right on Economic... near the middle on social, although that can be a bit misleading.

    Why is it misleading?

    Because I'm not really a "centrist" on those issues... and I wouldn't want to mislead anyone by giving off that impression.

    I'm either really conservative on them or really libertarian... depending on the specific issue.

    Your political compass
    Economic Left/Right: -0.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.56

    However the wording was so awkward on some of the questions I really was not sure.

    Agreed... some of them were a no-win situation. "Do you still have sex with your sister?"

    Economic Left/Right: 2.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.00

    Really? Are there no issues to which you are ambivalent or see merit on both sides? Or perhaps both sides are a little too much?

    Just curious.

    No you most certainly did not Mister.

    The WV version had Pig instead of Sister on it.
