I posted a link to this site back in 2003, but I thought I should mention it again. The Political Compass site measures where you fall on the political landscape, based on your answers to fiscal questions as well as social liberty questions. Rather than place you on a scale, though, it puts you on an axis. Very interesting.
And here’s where I landed back in 2003. It’s funny, because at the time, I was bitching about people calling me a hard-core lefty, and Scott’s encountering the same thing recently.
