Garbage in, garbage out.

This "test" has been around for many years. Every few month, some newcomer trips over it, and thinks he's discoverd something new and wonderful, and publicizes it far and wide. It get routinely debunked, for the 3,487th time, and fades back into obscurity along with such fallacies as the Flat Earth, government charity, and inexpensive solar power.

Until the next naive newbie stumbles over it again.
Yes.

And again, In other words, you didn't like the way the "test" portrayed you.
Don't blame us, it's not OUR fault the truth hurts.

I'm actually pretty satisfied with the "moderate Left-Libertarian" label, but I definitely don't want to be misunderstood as someone who may be hostile toward something like conventional property rights (i.e. closely similar to a libertarian socialist).

But, again, other than that, I'm cool with a political quiz designating me a left-leaner, despite the fact that I've always held a voting preference (and a rather weak one at that) for politicians of the political right. What can I say, lefties of libertarian orientation are in a very perplexing position when it comes to voting.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I never took the test. I just noticed that it was giving out impossible "results", such as the assertion that you can be conservative while trying to conttrol people's religious preferences; or thet you can be left-wing andd libetarian at the same time.

Garbage in, garbage out.

Un-huh.
Surrrrrrre you "never took the test".
Yeah, right.


Sorry to disappoint YOU, but politics is NOT "black and white" - like the rest of life, it's in "shades of gray".
"Shades of Gray" thinkers understand that, "Black and White" thinkers somehow lack the capacity.

Your views over time will change and so will your position on the chart therefore. My position is very different from where it was 10 years ago. Now I am:

Your political compass

Economic Left/Right: -6.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.54

Which places me strongly liberal and slightly libertarian.
