    A very slanted and sophomoric poll

    I cannot even answer those questions, cause I disagree with their premise.

    The poll is designed to obtain a Libertian (or as close to) result.

    A president once said "I don't need a poll to tell me my own mind."

    Likewise, I don't need a "test" to tell me where I am in the socio-political spectrum.

    It is a biased poll but I took it anyway. What a bunch of useless questions.

    Economic Left/Right: 0.12
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.62

    Now, to demonstrate how silly this poll really is, I've charted the responses of BB members along with some U.S. politicians scores. I got the U.S. politician's scores from the poll's own website.

    You can see that StefanM is more liberal than Ralph Nader, I am more liberal than Barack Obama (yick!) and Newt Gingrich is apparently the most conservative person in the group.
