Political Compass

I found this somewhat nifty site that presents a short test that measures your economic and social values and determines where you stand politically, and shows you famous figures for comparison. Here's my results:

I am closest to the Dalai Lama and Ghandi :D

I'm just a bit more to the center than Roots, the total opposite of my Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.

One square to the left, two squares up, about. I didn't bother to grab a link, since having so much specificity in the measurement when the number of sig-figs is probably about one bugs me.

I figured I'd be more extreme than this:

http://www.politicalcompass.org/printab ... &soc=-3.03

I believe strongly in the free market, less government control, and social morality set as a universal construct on the golden rule rather than social-political law. The mild libertarianism I can see, but why am I centrist economically? Weird.

Ok, so I went back and re-took this test (it's been about 6 months since my original result, and it seems I've changed a little)
