Probably a surprise to most of you ... I scored ...

Economic Left/Right: -3.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.92

aka Gandhi.  But that is funny, since I support peace, but will endorse selective violence.

Gilgamesh - I didn't find the questions particularly biases either direction.  The analysis is of course, based on stereotypes.

Apparently I'm Gandhi.

Frankly I think it would be fun to examine each question to see how far we really are apart. I don't think it is that much.

I'm going to be honest, I didn't even know it was possible to lean that far right on that quiz.

A few of the questions I wish had a middle option as I was really on the fence of agree and disagree.

But overall the results seem right to me.. remove religion and I'm about as conservative as they come. I would have just been slightly more down on the libertarian side I think.


Example would be the question on monopolies.... I really dont think goverment should be involved in telling people what they can and cant do in a business.... however history has show a few times where it was needed. Like the douch who raised aids medication to a retarded amount and I'm pro net neutrality.

So ultimately i disagree with it but i had to go with agree due to the few times it truly had to be done. I would have preferred an option in the middle.

Abortion would be another like that.. i dont like the idea of it i do think its wrong but overall I dont care enough about it to waste time on it.

This would be great, pick any question and I will happily trade and discuss answers with you.

We have Conservatives and Labour. Same difference.
The two parties have identical agendas. Except Labour is Socialist/Marxist.
Come to think of it, so is Conservatives.

 What difference voting makes? None.

Same with the Americans. They just don't know it.



That is a fascinating idea and I don't agree at all.

Munch is also British.

I am not British, but I avatar Churchill.  American, but neither conservative nor liberal.  Heretical theist rather than atheist/agnostic.

It is pretty much a stretch for you to say you are not extremely conservative.  Thousands of posts by you suggest otherwise.

Actually, in the UK it doesn’t matter.
We are (at the present) ruled by the Eurocrats, so there is no real sovereignty.
A province/vassal state of the EU Empire.
We pay tribute to Brussels. Billions.

Actually it seems that the EU nations are facing the struggle that US States had in forming a Federal Government above the,.  The coordination takes time and trust.  And more time.  Give it a century...

I think you're generally right about Americans not knowing it.  Either that or we are both wrong about the value of voting.  I can't speak for Britain, but I think most of us over here, have had it drilled into us that it is a civic duty, and from that we extract that there must be some value in it.

If you say here, "My vote doesn't make a difference," you get a kneejerk response, "Suppose everyone felt that way?"

That's usually a discussion stopper, and it doesn't have a common kneejerk comeback.  But when I actually think about "Suppose everyone felt that way?"  Then I doubt that it would make much difference.  Whether your vote doesn't make a difference or if you mindlessly vote without accurate information (not having accurate information isn't necessarily your fault.  All we hear on TV is bullshit, anyway, and the Internet is probably even worse), the end result is going to be pretty much the same.  The people who run the country for their own ends, are still going to be there doing what they do.  Yeah, OK, it makes a difference, just not a significant one.

Sorry, I'm a liberal and was asked not to respond.  However, I don't think my thoughts on the issue of voting are either liberal or conservative.

I think voting makes a difference.  If it didn't, the government would have been in the hands of one party for decades.  But look at what happens.

From Bush senior...  Republican, Democrat, Republican, Democrat, Republican...  That suggests voters decide.

Douches... flavored, natural, flavored, natural.  What Mark Twain and I agree on is not about who or what we decide to give our vote to, because we do decide, all of us.  The point is that the douches work the same way once you put them in the bag.  Most people disagree, I think, but I think Twain was profoundly insightful.

I would say Trump is the perfect example that voting works or counts. He was not supposed to win and everyone in the media thought it wasnt possible, but they forget that the majority of the country is very conservative. If you look at the middle of the US its hard to find a liberal state. Unfortunately the media is based in very liberal areas and forget that not everyone thinks like the people they surround themselves with.
