It's perfect. I wonder why, of 16 leaders, none of them are in the lower right quadrant...
Because right and libertarian doesn't mix well to their base.

See: Ron Paul.

Better not leave that up, Samnavy. It's IMPOSSIBLE for Obama to be right.

Hey, it's entertaining. Especially since it called Brainy the biggest liberal in politics. <3 Brainy.

Very true. If nothing else it gives us something to compare ourselves to.

A lot of the questions are ambiguous and have false implicit assumptions. For example:

"Controlling inflation is more important than controlling unemployment."

That's supposedly the twin edicts of the Federal Reserve System (which they've utterly failed at). The answer is NEITHER. There shouldn't even be top-down control of the money supply and interest rates.

So we need a right winger who is authoritarian in his views that the country should be libertarian...

I retook the test to make sure I didn't mess up while using my big fat fingers on my phone:





and this explains my vote for Paul this morning.

Economic Left/Right: -2.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.28




Some of these questions are worded funky. Lots of double negative uses.

I agree that many of the questions seem too limiting in their answer choices, but I wasn't upset with the results: a centrist that leans somewhat left on most social issues and somewhat libertarian on some economic issues.
