    What are your political beliefs?

    I have always considered myself somewhat Centrist definitely with a right-wing edge. Though that I suppose doesn't deal with the nuances in anyone's true beliefs.

    Anyway I did the Political Compass malarkey earlier and apparently I am a slightly libertarian super leftie (Economic Left/Right: -8.50 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.79)
    I never would have thought so!
    So in essence... I haven't a clue.

    A nationalist unionist socialist democrat maybe?

    Looks almost identical to the Dalai Lama on the chart. Not the worst company I suppose.

    Sounds about right. strange thing is i work in an utterly capitalist free market system, where the end goal is making money.
    i believe in one man, one vote. i should be that one man with that one vote.

    ALWAYS ON TOUR!

    Kind of sceptical about any survey that uses words like 'some' and 'usually' without clarification.

    Anyhow, my main belief is that we should 'kill them all, for God will know his own.'

    No matter what country you look at, seems only the Greens are in that quadrant, with most other parties in the top right corner.

    Can I be junior minister of state? I'd just like to pick up the salary without working.

    I fail to understand how "It's natural for children to keep somethings secret from their parents" gauges your political belief.

    I think it'll be a fight to the death between you and poor student. Then I'll take over as the compromise candidate.

    On 2nd inspection you big government anarchists make me look like Hitler adrift on the right but I'm the closest one yet to the centre.

    Less talk like that if you're cute. It's obvious that you stand to have a cushy number as my finance minister while i groom you as my successor.*







    *Until I get paranoid and purge you while Poor Student and the rest of his lunatic reasonable centrists invade from the West. Luckily they've forgotten about my osarusan kamikaze weapon. So I'll be fine.
