    Politics Test?

    http://www.okcupid.com/politics

    If this doesn't quite belong in this forum then move it. I know these things or not accurate (or at least you'll think I hope upon seeing my result) it's a bit of craic.

    You are a

    Social Conservative
    (36% permissive)


    and an...

    Economic Liberal
    (25% permissive)


    You are best described as a:


    Totalitarian


    You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

    I'm between Gorbachov and Darth Vadar on the celeb scale.

    I come somewhere between Gorbachov and Ghandi.

    Frankly, I'd be a bit wary of an American description of my politics - their "left" is deep on the right IMO. For example, the pope comes somewhere between Republican and totalitarian. That's right, the pope has posthumously joined the Republican party.

    Also, the default buttons in the "strongly agree" option would skew any results.

    They really do have a fundemental lack of understanding of the word totalitatian alright. Fascism is tucked off as something seperate to it. In Politics I was taught that only the Nazi and Soviet states fit the definition of totalitarian.

    Also with a question along the lines of "Do you think that the life of an American is worth the lives of several foreigners?" it has to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Well maybe I'd take your opinion more seriously if you weren't a facist.

    John83 summed up the whole thing beautifully - anyone left of Genghis Khan in the US is classified as a liberal/socialist etc etc. by the wingnuts.

    Not so much sneaking into as parading into and then of course, typical of him, denying it.

    JP must have moved over with the rest of American Catholics after Bushs promises on stem-cell research.

    I thought that was in Bush's manifesto.

    I can live with that as it would no doubt stick Bush in there along with the other right-wing expansionists.

    I was a democrat too which to be honest doesn't mean a huge amount. Try this one I found it slightly more meaningful. I was Economic Left/Right: -6.13 and Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.38
