Economic Left/Right: 4.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.36

Not sure how I ended up on the authoritarian side. Maybe my support for capital punishment?

not sure what this means

Economic Left/Right: 9.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.26

Ever so slightly to the left, and continuously down. That's almost 11 points lower than when I joined DDO in December of 2011.

I agree. I'm a lot more Libertarian on that quiz than I am on the Political Compass - about 5 points lower.

The other poll

Foreign Policy:

On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: 3.63
Culture:

Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: 4.9

I didn't, and I care far more about foreign policy than most other issues -which is why I didn't care for the first compass test.

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Economic: 8.38
Social: -3.28

Fairly accurate. I am economically libertarian, but with a few exceptions, and fairly libertarian on social issues (with the exception of abortion, gay marriage, and the death penalty). On the other on the issues quiz (http://www.gotoquiz.com...) I am considered a "far-right social libertarian":

http://www.gotoquiz.com...

Economic: 8:03
Social: 5.42

http://www.gotoquiz.com...

Foreign policy: 2.33

http://www.gotoquiz.com...

Social: 2.22

That quiz far more accurately displays my views. I'm not anarcho-capitalist, but I am very right-wing economically. I'm not neoconservative, but I'm do believe there is a place for military intervention. I'm pretty libertarian socially, but on a cultural level my views are moderately conservative.

Just so you all know, this will very likely be the last DDO Political Compass.
