The Political Compass

Knowing that I am not a heretic, I decided to review my standing on The Political Compass.

Back in 2005

Economic Left/Right: 3.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.56

Today, Feb 20, 2008

Economic Left/Right: 3.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.36

So it looks like I am basically consistent here, although slightly more authoritarian.

Eric Wallace's place on The Political Compass in comparison the 2008 Presidential hopefuls

What bothers me however is where I fall in comparison to the 2008 Presidential Primary field. Can the individuals behind The Political Compass really get an accurate score from speechs, policy papers, and voting records? I am really that different than most Republicans? I know that I have very little in common with the Democrats. I wish there were concrete scores available for the candidates. None of the candidates that I know of has taken the test and posted his/her score on the web. Maybe Lessig can post his if he decides to run for Congress.

How can I be closer to Hillary than Huckabee, let alone my preferred candidate Fred Thompson? Something is not right here. I just cannot figure out where yet, I dug through my Camino cache and printed out my answers to all the questions. Maybe I can learn something by reviewing them again. Who knows.

What about you, where do you score?
