Online political ideology quizzes are absolute shit, but are entertaining nonetheless. Here's a (comparatively) good one:

The Political Compass

You can just link your results. Here's mine:

Tippin's a real radical

I just want to see precisely how much I hate all of you.

It's more right than wrong but I don't totally agree with it. At least I didn't go right and UP.

They don't really ask enough questions on guns and welfare to get an accurate up/down reading on me.

The problem is, those are both fairly strictly America-related policy issues, guns in particular. The quiz is supposed to be generalizable across countries.

But, as you said, and as I admitted, it (like all online political quizzes) is kinda shitty.

I'm actually kinda surprised by some peoples', Kalon's in particular. No one's (so far) has made me hate any of you (any more than I already did), so good job?

Because you self-identify as a libertarian, and libertarians are usually in the bottom-right quadrant. By being in the bottom-left quadrant, you ostensibly support regulation of the economy, which is antithetical to typical American libertarianism.

I suppose I should clarify: I'm a social libertarian. My economic views are somewhat more fluid, as I believe the economic climate should dictate how it is handled, although I will admit I am generally pro-regulation; a truly free market will ultimately lead to many of the problems we are facing right now, with all the money at the top and none at the bottom. Having said that, I'm not an economist, so my opinions on such matters are bullshit anyways.

Congratulations! Your stock has gone up significantly. Ask Micah about how awesome it is to be liked by me.

You should probably sell that stock, by the way. I hear the economy ain't doing too well.

Don't consider myself particularly political at all, but here's mine:

I'm glad I'm not as far off the average as I thought I would be.

It says you're closer to Stalin than anyone else in the thread!

Although you're even closer to the Pope, which I guess counts for something...

You are moderate on both economic and social issues, leaning slightly towards more government involvement in both areas.
