I’m coming out of the closet… I’m slightly left

I’m coming out of the closet… I’m slightly left

Following the example of my buddy Ryan Byrd, I took the Political Compass Questionnaire and lo and behold, I’m slightly left:

Economic Left/Right: -1.00

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.87

So I’m in the Authoritarian Left quadrant. But really very slightly. Although I always knew I was pretty central, I always thought I was slightly right. I’ve almost always voted Republican. I’m a solid supporter of President Bush and the War on Terrorism. I’ve always aligned myself morally with the right and for me, that is a major part of my political affiliation.

Go ahead… let’s see where you stand. Take the test.

    Surprise, surprise…I am Libertarian-Left, closest to Ghandi, who if I had to chose a mortal hero, he would be it. But my moral values keep me from being very far left. But I am rather libertarian. These are my coordinates.

    Economic Left/Right: -0.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

    It’s rather biased to have the leftist anarchists represented by negative numbers.

    That’s not too surprising. It’s the idealist in you that makes you more of a libertarian.

    As for the negative numbers… I noticed that as well and thought it quite funny 😀

    My score was
    Economic Left/Right: -5.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.05
    Closest to the Dhalai Lama and Ghandi–not bad company.
    I guess I have to change the name of my blog now, huh. Maybe “The Commie.”

    Wow… you are way, way left. True, not bad company, but yeah… you are no centrist.
