    Political Compass

    Here's a link to a site that I've came across before.
    http://www.politicalcompass.org

    Where it differs from normal tests on politics is that it's not just left/right. If that were the case, I think I'd know where most stand on this site. However, it adds a second line between authoritarian and libertarian.

    Anyways, if you have time, please take the test, it's 6 pages with around maybe 8 or so questions a page, so it doesn't take long (totally work friendly). When finished, if you printed your "score" here that would rock. I'm interested to see if people on this site (ccw) are all mostly the same politically or if there's a large difference in the group.

    To get to the point, my score is:
    Economic Left/Right: 1.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

    Hmmm. I scored less libertarian/authoritarian than the last time I took that test... at least I'm still well to the right. Must be having an off day :)

    Economic Left/Right: 5.13
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.92
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    I'm 2.5 economic right, 0.62 authoritarian. I surprised myself. I thought I was more of a libertarian.
