    For posterity:

    Economic Left/Right: -3.12*
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.95

    *nota bene: I'm still forming my concepts of what socio-economic controls I feel are best, and for what countries. Hence, my "flip-flopping" (and by that, I mean shifting) left-right scheme. My up-down dichotomy continues to shift downward. Personally, I feel that there should free trade with a few, certain, limited caps set by the government. I'm not really all that economically conservative, but my libertarian ideals tend to skew this test.
    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    Before ya know if Orangutan, you'll be a proud neo-con!

    I am confused by your last statement though: Do you mean just "socially libertarian", or Libertarian libertarian? Cause if you mean the latter, then your economic views, even moderated as they are, are still WAY off.

    Economic Left/Right: -1.62
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.10

    It doesn't seem like a very good test to me, though... a lot of the questions seem far to general or vague

    You guys are a bunch of filthy flip-floppers!


    Exellent idea Smoked Trout


    As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
    These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.

    Graph is up to date, you can add a link to it in your first post if you'd like Justin.

    He voted for Badnarik, so I'm guessing he means the Libertarian party.

    But that is a Ghandi hippy. I figured his politics were close to yours.

    Edit. I changed it to someone I know you admire.

    Oh yes, William Buckey is my hero and the National Review is my Bible


    Yeah, I am pretty close to Ghandi on the chart.
