And, of course, I am still scrambling up the learning curve in search of secure footing in reconciling myself to the current occupant of a certain House on Pennsylvania Avenue.
So, in the meantime, I thought I would pass along a useful little quiz for identifying one's position on a variety of dimensions of political thought:
This quiz will let you know where you fall on social liberties, economics, foreign policy-- even the culture war. In truth, this isn't a quiz so much as a set of statements that you must agree or disagree with. Based on your responses we will place you on a graph--also termed a political compass--that separates social liberties from economic opinion.
Such quizzes are a dime a dozen, and most are pure crap. However, the results of this one lined up pretty intuitively with how I informally assessed my evolving political views. For giggles, I herewith present my results:
I am a right moderate social
Right: 5.15, Libertarian: 3.34
Foreign Policy Views
Culture War Stance
I thought it might be entertaining for any readers out there to have a go at this, and see where they stand/fall. If nothing else, it might make for some good sport in the Comments section!
Have at it!
