  • Your Political Stance - 2014 Edition

    I did this a few years ago and still have the results. I'd be curious to see if people's views have changed since then, and how the board aligns politically these days.
    We don't need to turn this into another political thread. If you want to discuss policy there are plenty of threads for that. I want to focus on the questions and the results.

    The link: http://www.gotoquiz.com/politics/political-spectrum-quiz.html

    My results:

    June 2014: Left Moderate Social Libretarian.
    Left: 6.73, Libertarian: 2.15
    Foreign Policy: -3.67 Culture: -7.17

    January 2012: Far-left Social Moderate
    Left: 7.85, Libertarian: .62
    Foreign Policy: -2.01 Culture: -4.45

      Left: 4.8, Authoritarian: 1.27

      Foreign Policy:

      On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: -0.33

      Culture:

      Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: -0.93

        You are a left moderate social libertarian.
        Left: 3.63, Libertarian: 2.89

        Foreign Policy: -6.47

        Culture: -5.78

        My results turned out further to the left on foreign policy than I expected, though that may be because I found those questions repetitive and started to tune them out. But overall about as I expected, on the lower left quadrant of the overall chart as rendered on the site, but in the "upper right quadrant" of the lower left quadrant, if that makes any sense.

                              The open ended questions such as: If an unwed teen becomes pregnant, abortion may be a responsible choice. bothered me. "May" in this instance, is so wide-open that it could greatly skew the leanings. Date rape? One night of fun? Incest? Consensual? It focuses on age, rather than act.
