    Whenever the political compass test next rolls around this should probably feature as an alternative.

    I'll get my results up shortly, and looking at the comparisons around the world I weep for Europe.

    On another note, started watching last night's debate and Clinton is hilarious, does she seriously believe that lower corporate taxes don't attract businesses, and that tax cuts were the driving force of the subprime mortgage crisis?

    No, but she does seriously (and correctly) believe that the general population knows little enough about economics to buy it.

    Well, I guess she is a pathological liar.

    Did she seriously say that she would not run a net deficit....********

    And Trump isn't?

    I'm really surprised you support Trump given that you'd always presented yourself as socially quite liberal.

    I said socially liberal. As in you supported the state letting people pretty much do what they want. Such as drugs legalisation, allowing abortions, gay marriage and euthanasia etc. Akin to libertarianism. Trump is very authoritarian.

    You've always been right wing economically, now you seem to be quite hard right socially as well.

    Or it's simply much lower on my priorities list?

    I thought you were quite libertarian, that's the way you'd always presented yourself really, as feeling that the state should pretty much keep out of people's way.

    Yet you support Trump who very much wants a state that intervenes in people's lives, telling them what they can and cannot do.
    You're only really supporting Trump because Hilary could be regarded as slightly more left wing (even though she is far from left wing).

    You seem to have gone from a libertarian to a right wing authoritarian.

    In Trump's defence (not that I wholeheartedly support him) he also supports pretty much all of what you've listed to some degree.

    Again, you assume the priorities are in the order you want them to be rather than the implied order.

    Comfortably sat in the corner of Conservatism near Neo-Con, Neo-Lib and National Conservatism. Perhaps some of the newer isidewith features would be more useful.
