    There's a good bit of conservative vs. liberal vs. libertarian debate in this forum.

    Once in a while I take a "political quiz". It's interesting to see my attitude graphed. I typically wind up hard right on the economic issues & pretty well into the libertarian quadrant on social issues.

    This one placed me in the middle on Authoritarian v. Libertarian. Not sure what that says about me, maybe my attitude is changing with age. But some of the questions are pretty funny. Based on the blatant spin in some of the questions, I'm pretty sure I can guess where the writer falls...

    Anyone else ever play around with these things?

    On these things, I usually end up backed into a corner. Guess which one. :sly:

    Interesting, but I guess no surprises.

    Something seems off here

    I blame the questions, so awkwardly written, I wasn't sure which way to go.

    Dang! I closed the window. Now I have to wade through all the questions again in order to post my graph...

    It was something like +9 Economic, +1 Authoritarian. WTH is the Authoritarian coming from?

    Roughly the same as the other quiz for me I believe. (Oh well, that image doesn't show correctly)

    It's an overlay of two images. Just hit "Print Screen," paste it into paint, save the image, and post that.
