The Political Compass Test.

123 posts in this topic

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.

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

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?

-Rolls eyes- Really? "Dazzled by pigment rather than policy detail"...this drivel? Is it really that hard to accept he was elected because.... I don't know he was a better candidate that a better message and approach to things. The Republicans in this country have done everything they can since his time in office to discredit him not just as a president but as a human being. They falsify data and attempt to belittle his accomplishments. I can't believe there are people that continue to just eat it up...it's crap. The fact of the matter is he's done a lot to bring this country out of the hole the Bush administration dug this country in.

 

Obama's tax cut extension for instance was not his doing alone with his own "Rightist" agenda. He is a President, not a one man army or dictator. He has to work with people in order to get anything done he has to work with the republicans. With that deal, it was made so taxes didn't get raised for the rest of us during our big recession and our slow recovery(an after affect of the Bush administration I might add). More over in extending the tax cut, he was able to negotiate the payroll tax holiday and the extension of Emergency Unemployment Compensation. Oh but wait, we don't talk about that do we? And that's just one of the points, I could go on to the rest but I'm honestly too lazy to right now. My point is, it's not black and white like the piece you posted appears to suggest, on top of the baseless comment regarding his race at the end of it. As a person of the race with the pigment that "dazzles" folks apparently(hey they said it not me), I'm just tired of seeing such weak attempts to belittle his ability or how he got into office. The economy has improved under his administration as well as unemployment, he has passed good policies as well as imperfect, has has made accomplishments that benefited this country and he has made mistakes. Like every president. He was elected because he demonstrated his ability to be president through his approach, character, message, and ideas...twice. Not because of his skin.

I would really, really like to like Obama but you really don't realise something even the republicans won't admit is most of what hes pushing is recycled republican ideas from the 1990's? Obamacare included and if he gets walked all over because he lets it happen or he gets walked all over because he can't do anything about it either way it means he is an ineffectual president, that said I don't really believe its either of those cases but that he is pushing through exactly what he wants to... His stance has proven, flexible, to say the least (its hard to pin the guy down when on many issues hes backflipped over the years), this includes for example gay marraige, he like so many politicians has simply said whatever he has to, to whatever crowd he has to in order to get elected.

 

Also, dug America out of the financial crisis that bush put it into? how exactly? bailing out the banks? I think it would of recovered exactly the same had they not done so and he missed one hell of a chance to reform the banking industry and seriously pounce on allot of these guys, instead he gives them public office. The drone strikes he is under no obligation to authorise, yet he does, yes he might piss off allot of people if he stopped them but he as head of the executive branch has the power to put his foot down and stop it overnight and set a firm public stance on it... he doesn't. The same applys to gitmo.

 

Also, as much as I think his (stated) policies might of been better than his republican adversary that his skin colour was a selling point as well, it gave the appearance of something progressive to the people and thats not a bad thing most of the time.

Politics is all a matter of opinion really and we can go back and forth all day about Obama and never come to any kind of agreement. I really don't want to waste each other's time with it. In the heat of the moment I saw the baseless statement suggesting that he was only elected because he is black, I strongly disagree with that. That is the main point of my comment. On every policy ever passed or thing said/done by a president there will be opposing views on it. My main point is race has nothing to do with anything and needn't be dragged into it. As for everything else I will bow my head to you and preemptively agree to disagree lol.

Obamacare is as far from the right as possible and people tell you that the US is mostly right wing to make it sound better then it actually is, but the fact of the matter is... big government wants all the power and control and its up to the conservatives to fix this. Democrats only do something if it feeds their agenda like sign on conservative advisors to make himself look like the good guy, but Obamacare still went through even though no one wanted it except the brainwashed raticalist demarcate constitutes. They've made it so no one can think for themselves.
