Looks like I take this every two or three years and kept the results:

20050824
Economic Left/Right: -4.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51

20080725
Economic Left/Right: -6.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.13

20100227
Economic Left/Right: -5.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.82

20120429
Economic Left/Right: -6.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.13

I seem to be moving more to the bottom left corner of the graph. I suppose I'll have to find someone else to vote for other than those right-wing fascists, the NDP. I'm not sure why I got a little bit closer to the centre in 2010 (with respect to 2008 and 2012), maybe I'm just more pissed off in American major election years...

I've noticed a similar trend at every place I've seen this test posted. I'm not sure if that says more about the political leanings of small internet communities or points out a flaw in the test. I definitely think some of the questions are loaded and can be interpreted in different ways.

... which shows the main dilemma of the American political system. We got two parties which are mostly in the same corner, just separated by minor differences.

So where's the equivalents to European Social Democrats?

Nowhere to be found, it looks. And the way the whole thing works it makes pretty damn well certain that they'll never have anything to say.

No where is it more obvious than in Canada. At least America's left and right have a cartoon-y like rivalry.

Which makes the whole thing even more ridiculous, considering that all America has is moderate conservatives (i.e. Democrats) and ultra-conservatives (i.e. Republicans)

Here in Europe those elements are often just different groups in the same party with the left being far more left - and still being accepted as a necessary element in a working democratic culture.

Strict moderate. While there are some issues that shouldn't be open to negotiation (such as equal rights), most everything else is subject to balance. Extremism is generally a bad idea.

In America, I'm Far-left Socialist hippie anarchist scum.

Which means I'm slightly to the right of centre everywhere else on the planet.

Well there's probably a ton more factors that can determine one's authoritarian right standing outside of what's covered in the quiz. Still pretty damn unnerving though.
