    Recently came across this interesting test for determining where one sits on the political compass, between Authoritarian and Libertarian on one axis as well as between Left and Right.

    https://www.politicalcompass.org/test

    My own score is
    Economic Left/Right: -6.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.21

    Also those from the US keep in mind that by the standards elsewhere both of your major political parties are extremely right wing so you might be in for a surprise.

    Apparently, not too far from Ghandi or so.

    I'm very close to Gandhi according to this, but nearly exactly center in the bottom left box.

    Man everyone was right, we're all in the same box on their charts >.< Granted, it's fairly different positions, but it's still pretty surprising

    As I stated earlier you'll find all the major US political parties and leaders are extremely right wing by comparison to else where, with a few exceptions.

    Obama should be on that graph near
    Obama is a Democrate. There are two parties in the US (that matter and can put out a presidential contender). Democrates of the left and conservatives or GOP of the right. Then there is independent or the other third party parties.

    Yeah, thats what they call themselves but when you actually look at their policies they are all very right wing, often in different ways but very right wing regardless. I mean yeah Obama isn't Regan right wing, but he still sits considerably right of centre. Most Australian political parties are the same except The Greens for instance.

    Edit: Heres what they have to say on Obama for instance.

    The Democratic incumbent has surrounded himself with conservative advisors and key figures — many from previous administrations, and an unprecedented number from the Trilateral Commission. He also appointed a former Monsanto executive as Senior Advisor to the FDA. He has extended Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, presided over a spiralling rich-poor gap and sacrificed further American jobs with recent free trade deals. Trade union rights have also eroded under his watch. He has expanded Bush defence spending, droned civilians, failed to close Guantanamo, supported the NDAA which effectively legalises martial law, allowed drilling and adopted a soft-touch position towards the banks that is to the right of European Conservative leaders. Taking office during the financial meltdown, Obama appointed its principle architects to top economic positions. We list these because many of Obama's detractors absurdly portray him as either a radical liberal or a socialist, while his apologists, equally absurdly, continue to view him as a well-intentioned progressive, tragically thwarted by overwhelming pressures. 2008's yes-we-can chanters, dazzled by pigment rather than policy detail, forgot to ask can what?
