Quote for the Day, and my Political Affiliation

According to Political Compass I am truly a fence straddler.

But first, a pause for my quote of the day:
"Evolution explains changes in life, creation explains its origin." -- Some lackluster presidential "candidate," himself straddling the fence.

Not only am I reassuringly only slightly right (as an economist should be) but I'm nestled snugly between libertarianism and fascism. Now that's what I call rational!

If you read my location on this graph using cartesian coordinates I come out at (7,-5). But that's mostly because of the poor wording of questions. I'm sure I could play the game and land perfectly at (0,-10) which is where the author wants you, but, oh well. What were your coordinates?

2.0 to the right, -.31 toward libertarian. Click on the link in the post to see my chart.

I don't know what to think of the quiz. I think it described my position pretty accurately, considering I didn't know what to expect for myself.

I suppose the questions could be better, but I felt they raised relevant issues. It'll be interesting to try the same quiz 10 years from now and see how much further right I am...
