Hey guys, I came across the Political Compass again recently, and figured it would be interesting to see where others in the Otaku community reside!

Political Compass Homepage

Find out if you are more are more Left (Communism) to Right (Neo-Liberalism) and up Authoritarian (Fascism) to down Libertarian (Anarchism). That in the ( ) is of course the extreme. lol You may be surprised!

My Results

[EDIT] I originality posted a picture of Ron Paul's lol. I fixed it and posted my results. xD


[EDIT] I feel my results occurred due to my strong military ideals. Basic beliefs: A nation is only as strong as its Citizens. The freer the market the freer the people. Charity > Government aid systems. Some peoples > other peoples (including health). Reproduction is more genetically efficient when in the same ethnically (not to impose any ideals of racism once so ever).

I thought I'd be closer to the right, but I'm not too surprised. I always knew I was a bit of a libertarian. :) If they asked more questions on fiscal policy I might be closer to the right, though.
I love guinea pigs and cats and Sgt. Frog.

I figured; most of the view points made me laugh though. Like the STALIN VS GANDHI one.

Not sure how accurate this thing is. According to it, Obama is only a little to the left of Romney. Also, it says that I'm to the left of Obama.

More so generated for amusement, a conversation maker if you will. However, thank you very much for your feedback on the accuracy of the online test.

So I'm being told that qoute "You are not allowed to ust that image extension on this board." The heck? Andways, my result is literally one square up and to the right of the exact middle of the graph. I knew I was always in the middle of arguments and decision but man. LOL. No wounder why I never see exactly eye to eye with anyone.

My score, assuming that I completely understood the questions:

Economic Left/Right: 5.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.77

Looking at the chart again, it says that economically I am equal with Obama. However, it says that I am a whole lot more liberal socially.

:huh: :huh: :huh:

Edit: Apparently, I'm equal with Ron Paul socially. So, according to this compass, I am the unholy combination of Obama and Ron Paul.

I will agree though that some of these questions are really need a neutral option.

Reflecting back when I took this before, I've moved left a little bit.

I really don't like the wording of some of those questions, and why no neutral options? It had me as Right 1.75(I thought I'd be further over), and right on the line for Libertarian/Authoritarian.

Has anyone here taken the I Side With quiz yet (http://www.isidewith.com/)? It's very good, and you can even choose more detailed answers by selecting the "choose another stance" option.

Here are my results: http://www.isidewith...sults/110296138

95% - Romney
82% - Virgil Goode
70% - Gary Johnson
43% - Barack Obama

It even shows you which issues you agree with those candidates, and if you click on the resulting candidates you can see a detailed list of their stance on the issues you both agree on.

I'm sure most everyone here has already chosen their candidate, but you should still take the quiz and see if their views line up with yours. You may be surprised!

Side with one

Somewhat surprised, mainly because Romney is so high up. lol I do not agree with that fellow much. lol

Actually after reading, I see a few misclicks. lol Seems i'd be more around 80ish with Obama and 45 or lower with Romney

On the compass thing... I was right by Ghandi.

and on the other thing, I actually agreed with Obama on a lot of things, but Romney was a few points higher.
