This political test has been around for years and digby recently linked it. She also has a discussion of how Obama was in the upper-right quadrant in 2008 based on his Senate record, which, in 2011, doesn't seem surprising at all. The only people who'd reject that assessment are those in the "Obama is a Socialist, Kenyan, Muslim America-hater" and "Obama is a savvy, 57-dimensional chess-playing radical doing the best he can" contingents. The fact that those people aren't just laughed out of our political discourse is a testament to how far to the right America has moved in the last forty years.
I took it again and found myself in the bottom-left corner, as I guessed I would be. I remember taking a similar little test on the Libertarian Party's website when I was 16 and being labeled a straight-up libertarian, which also makes sense since their test would naturally try to lead people to their ideology. That and libertarianism loses its appeal once people start working. (I found the test again but it isn't on the LP's website.)
It isn't serious but it's fun to see where people are on this. I suspect that the way we each define "agree" and "strongly agree" will account for a large part of the difference between where people end up on this thing. I used a lot of stronglies since I don't believe in doing anything halfway.
What about you all?
