Richard and Kim:

I am somewhat relishing the fact that the two of you are slightly more libertarian than I am! :-)

I am Left 5.51 Libertarian 1.37 (I was rather relieved that I wasn’t any less of a lefty.)

It makes me a left moderate social authoritarian.
Left: 5.83, Authoritarian: 1.6; more cultural liberal than cultural conservative.
You could have a lot of fun with this one - answer along the lines of “What would Genghis Khan do if he was a columnist in the Daily Mail, or a presenter on Fox News?”

Left: 5.35, Libertarian: 4.7. Not surprised in the least.

Tony - Genghis Khan had to resign from the Daily Mail. He was too liberal.

Allan - I’m glad to have cheered your day. I must admit that there were perhaps 3 questions framed in such a way that I didn’t know how to answer, so I just gave neutral responses. I find it interesting that on the left/right scale I’m much where I’ve been since I was old enough to have a political opinion. But I’ve become more libertarian over the years. Mellowing with age?

Richard:

I had the same issue with a few of the questions; they were not worded to my liking.

Genghis Khan had to resign from the Daily Mail. He was too liberal.

Hey DH, if you want to apply for the vacancy, I’ll write you a reference. ;)

Left: 8.38, Libertarian: 3.75

Leftier and more socially libertarian than anyone here so far. I also came out pretty far along the scale on the non-interventionist and culturally liberal lines. Who knew?

So you’re not just a horrid lefty, Wood.

You are, in fact, totally horrid. ;)

Hmmmm, terrible neutral for me,
Left 1.79, Authoritarian 0.92.

Richard 08.19.09 at 9:18 pm

How is the view from the fence, malc? ;)

Folks, I’m right: .67, Authoritarian: 3.93

Come on guys to associate Ghengis Khan with Fox News is ridiculous regardless if he was too liberal, centerist or conservative.

As you can see I’m not as much on the “right” as you all think. :)

However, at least you know I’m right. :) Better to be right than wrong. Just kidding. :)
