Electoral Compass 2008

I’ve taken Political Compass quizzes on back in 2003 and again in 2006 here on this site.

This new Electoral Compass is a different take – it’s written in flash, for one thing, and it places you on the compass with current electoral candidates.

Here’s my score on the current one:

Compared to previously in 2003:

And one I took in 2006 from Okay Cupid. Note that on all of them, the axis changes, which makes them harder to compare.

The new compass seems to think my politics are closest to Obama’s positions. I’m not terribly sure about that – the questions are pretty general, and Obama hasn’t really give specifics about many of his stances. He’s given some general outlines and a lot of inspirational speeches, which I do find inspirational. But I know more about Hillary’s actual politics.

    I do beleive that all should pay their fair share in taxes. It would be equitable if there was a straight 10 percent tax on all purchases. It would be fair and equitable for all. As far as the cost of oil/gas, why don’t we shut off our resources to these countries that rape us on costs. If nothing else, raise the costs of our goods to them to some exorbatant fee (wheat, corn, any product that they receive from us). Bush, (I can’t call him a President) has been the ruination of our country. I’ll be glad to see him go as well as a few other millions of people.
