I thought it would be good to post links to websites that have political quizes.
Everybody thinks they are something, but a quiz can put it in perspective

i liked http://www.self-gov.org/quiz.html
it is very short, simple and to the point
which says i am a very Right leaning Libertarian
but it was a webpage i was sent to by a libertarian web page(Neal Boortz, http://boortz.com), so i would like more quizes to visit and take to be informed
a net friend of mine took the test and found out she was a liberal, though she constantly denied being aliberal
I always referred to her as a limosine liberal despite her approval of the death penalty
she was bummed to be 'labeled liberal' by the quiz

Its a lot of questions, but it takes a lot of questions to really determine ones ideology.

My political compass:

Economic Left/Right: -2.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79


So I guess that means I am slightly left of center on political / economic issues, and fairly libertarian on civil liberties.

I wonder if anyone can beat my extreme position:

Economic Left/Right: -10.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.15

That REALLY IS what I got.

I am a new member of these forums, and thought I'd start things off by posting my "political compass".

Economic Left/Right: -1.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.05

It seems that I am close to the center on almost everything......
