That political compass test landed me in Ghandi's vicinity, interestingly enough.


Thats exactly where I was!

Finally, someone who is "close" to my views. :lol:

I took the latter test, which I found to be a lot more in-depth than the former, and got liberal libertarian. But I already knew that.

Economic Left/Right: -3.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.64

I took the second quiz thing (which I found a lot more intresting and comprehensive), and this is what I got...

Economic Left/Right: -5.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.90

I don't remember what I got in numbers, but mine was in the same grid corner as all of you guys. I guess South Park fans think alike. :D

And thats why we love SP. It is humor with politics at it's best!

Probably...I dunno... I just support whatever I fancy and believe is best for the masses like me, that's all...

Economic Left/Right: -2.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.62

I really don't understand what that means very much, I just consider myself moderate.

I think the left-right scale is your views concerning economics (left- state-supported, right- free market) and the up-down scale is your social stance (up- authoritarian, down- anarchist/liberal)...

While I prefer the 2d political scale to the 1D version most political commentators, lables of this kind are really rather unnescecary; surely you can just tell a person'r political beliefs by the policies they support?
The test was pretty darn good though, putting me in just where I thought I was, with the good Lord Jesus!

It really does seem that most of us all are in the same quadrant of that graph...

Maybee Matt and Trey are trying to indoctionate us all with their Libertanian views?
Maybee they've brainwashed us all already!
Oh no! We've been brainwashed by a badly animated adult themed cartoon!
No amount of tin foil hats can save us from being libertanians for life now!

Ok, I took the second quiz too, and I'm a slightly right-leaning Libertarian (which I already knew)

Economic Left/Right: 1.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.54

^It beats the Brainwashing the left and the right give out through CNN and FOX respectively, that's fo sure :!:
But yeah, we're probbably not going to have that big a difference in political oppinion seing as we're all internet savy fans of a contreversial TV show; Not many members of the computer exorsising, construction paper burning Christian Rightists then :wink:
We might get a few exceptions to the rule, but they'l be the guys who don't really like SP but post/troll here regardless.

Yeah... In truth, I am a Christian...but I'm not very hardcore. I believe in all of that, but I don't really like getting in peoples' faces about religion- I find it rude and that it drives people away from your religion.
