Politics

Since there is an election approaching, I decided to do the test on Political Compass. The result was:

Economic Left/Right: 8.88(Almost all the way to the right)
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.31(Quite Libertarian)

Even though some of the questions are somewhat peculiar it appears to be fairly accurate, although -4.31 seems far too statist for my liking. (I think -10 would be better.)

Similarly, i did the test on Who should you vote for? which came out like this:

Who Should You Vote For?

Who should I vote for? v2

Your expected outcome:

UK Independence Party


Your actual outcome:



Labour -19
Conservative 43
Liberal Democrat -67
UK Independence Party 47
Green -34


You should vote: UK Independence Party

UKIP's primary focus is on Europe, where the party is strongly against joining both the EU constitution and the Euro. UKIP is also firmly in favour of limiting immigration. The party does not take a clear line on some other policy issues, but supports scrapping university tuition fees; it is strongly against income tax rises and favour reducing fuel duty.

Take the test at Who Should You Vote For

Since there isn't a UKIP candidate here, i should probably vote Conservative, although the Monster Raving Looney Party has some intriguing "Manicfesto" pledges, including:
"Our team of experts has decided that Income Tax has not proved popular with the public and will therefore be abolished"
" We will issue a 99p coin to save on change"
and best of all "The Official Monster Raving Loony Party will not join the single European currency. We will invite all Europeans countries to JOIN THE POUND

    Ugh! I'm going to have to take out and wash my eyeballs after reading such a piece…

    I would try to convince you why a vote for UKIP or the Tories for that matter is a poison against the progressive world, but I guess you're a lost cause…

    Vex, since when has common sense not been progressive. Since when has refusing to give power to a bunch of greasy federalists in Brussels not been progressive.

  3. I am already convinced that a vote for UKIP or the Conservatives would be a poison against the progressive world. That's why i will vote that way. "Progressive", like "Social Justice", "Trade Justice", and other similar terms, is a word used by the left to mean "arbitrarily controlled by the state 'cause we think we know best". We must put a stop to this folly at once, by voting for people who understand that we know beter than them how to run our own lives.
