Another of those political test thingies ...

It's a few years since I did one of these quizzes designed to evaluate one's place on the political spectrum; this one is very US-centric, though, so a number of the questions are irrelevant in a British (or indeed I'd say European) context. Just as one example, the question about capital punishment is pointless because it will never be reintroduced in the European Union (it's a basic condition of membership that no member state have a death penalty) and I am pretty comfortable with that. Capital punishment is just state-sponsored murder - and murder is wrong.

Anyway, here are my detailed results:

You Are 70% Conservative, 30% Liberal

Social Issues: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal
Ethics: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal

Having said all this, I think it is probably reasonably accurate, specially the part about fiscal issues. I tweeted about this here.
