    Heres a nice thing a found to confirm your political idealology heres the link

    I am a moderate conservative.

    I agree with most, but not all, Republican idealologies.

    I am 14, but am planning to be very involved soon.

    Man, I'm tired of these mistakes. Idealogy and party affiliation are completely different things. Idealogy doesn't encompass party policy.

    I'm quite far to the left, my political compass is a solid -6,-6. As for party affiliation, I'm a social justice Democrat. In the UK I'd vote Liberal Democrat, and many other places with list voting I'd be Socialist or Green. I support universal healthcare, moderately high taxation, federal education, stem cell research, gun control and safety, free access to abortion, birth control, full sex education. I'm on the fence on affirmative action, I think that if minority schools weren't so bad I'd be against it. Assuming education and welfare is improved for minorities, I wouldn't support it. I am currently drifitng towards being against capital punishment. I support all enviromental protections laws. Free speech ends when it becomes criminal. And most importantly, the church and state are serperate. I fully support gay rights. Also, I want to abolish the Electoral College and have a parliamentary democracy using list voting.

    More later.

    Generally speaking I'm a libertarian. I support abortion, capital punishment, stem cell research, free market, I'm against gun control (within reason), I don't agree with most government policies regarding business, and I think taxes are too high. As for healthcare I'm sort of on the fence, I think either socialized healthcare OR privatized healthcare would be acceptable.

    I don't know really where I fall. I tend to be democray on social issues and republican on financial issues. However, I'm in different places on different issues, so I don't like labeling myself with one group.

    My current political modus operandi is close enough to "social democracy" that I am willing to use the label. Observe the stats in my sig for my political compass stats.

    I am currently involved with the democratic party... Hmm... I should probably change my registration from Libertarian, which is what I was when I was 15.

    um, yeah, I would agree that such a label does not describe you at all. In fact, I would guess that even at 15 the label was inappropriate - probably were in a rebelious mode (like most teenagers), and it seemed 'anti-establishment' and cool. Totally wrong reasons to choose any political affiliation.

    You probably need to realign your mind. Apparantly your telepathy skills are failing you. FYI, political beliefs of a person tend to change or develop over time.

    If you look at Mecha's social Political Compass score, you can see he's quite the libertarian, except for his faith in government, which probably has increased as of late.

    why would you say his faith in government has increased recently?

    Anyways, the test questions are rather ridiculous, the questions contain implied assumptions which are dealt with in the choices of answers available. For instance:

    Q1: If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
    The only available answers are either agree or disagree. It puts forth that a false dichotomy: the choice between 'humanity' or 'trans-national corporations'. Perhaps the answer is that BOTH can (and are) served. So, the inherent bias in the question. Stupid test and not very informative. My scores, on the basis of their graph/chart 'should' be:

    Economic Left/Right: + 10
    Libertarian/Authoritarian: - 10

    but due to the nature of the questions, I got this:
    Economic Left/Right: 8.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51

    It got the vectors right, but the 'degree' is way off the mark.

    I fall under the basic ideals of liberal and populist. I agree almost completely with the founding fathers, the almost part comes from their time induced rascism. To me the governement has 3 obligations, protect the liberty of the population, protect the life, of the poulation, and protect the peoples chances to obtain personal happiness. Anything further than that should not be part of the government.

    Where I differ from a libertarian is that the government does have the obligation to protect the population from big buisness forces. We DO have the right to own weapons, and a right to a civilian military in case the government become too corrupt and bad. I hate the current labor tax we have, I don't think people should be TAXED ON PROGRESS. We should be taxed on what we buy and what we own.

    Ohh and I hate G.W.B.
