The Political Compass

The Political Compass has been around and linked all over the place for a couple of years now. I have taken the quiz a couple of times now over the last two years, and each time, I end up a wee bit more to the left. The Compass places me in the Left Libertarian quadrant, which is where I would have place myself, but I did not expect how much to the left I would be.

Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.74
I grew up in a conservative Republican family, the main part of the family has remained Republican, while myself, my mom, and my dad have consistently gotten more liberal as the years have gone by. My mom and I joke about it saying that she is a Republican in Recovery and has had 2 years of sobriety. I have had 10 years of political sobriety, as I first registered Independent in 1993.
Last night at the 2nd Annual Labor Day BBQ in my backyard, one end of the table got talking about politics and I asked if people had taken the Politcal Compass quiz, and they had not. Take it, and let us know how you do.

    I’d send this to all of my supposedly “conservative” co-workers and relations, as I’m sure they’d end up much more to the left than they’d like to admit, but I’m not one for stirring up political discussions in inappropriate environments. Surpised? ha ha

  2. Economic Left/Right: -3.50

    not surprising. political compass has updated themselves to reflect current times, and my responses seem to have updated themselves in kind. Personally, I think that Big Sir Bush & Co. are going to drive more and more innocent centrists farther and farther south on that libertarian line… wait and see!
