Where do you fall?

I’ve been fiddling around with my new ‘about’ page ( http://blog.datapacrat.com/about/ ). I’ve taken three different two-axis political quizzes ( http://www.politicalcompass.org/ , http://uselectionatlas.org/TOOLS/POLMTX/thetest.php , http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz (though I had to flip the third one’s graph to fit the others)) , and they’ve all put me around the same area – ‘left libertarian’, extremely left socially, moderate-to-strong left economically.

My result from Political Compass:

Economic -6.12, Social -7.64

My result from Political Matrix:

Economic score:  -4.39
Social score: -9.57
Your score pegs you as economically moderately leftist and socially far-leftist.
Moderate economic leftists generally support regulation of free trade and business to assure that workers are fairly treated and prices remain stable.
Social far-leftists generally believe that the government has no business enforcing morality on most matters, instead favoring a government that intervenes only when absolutely necessary to avoid direct harm.  Many social far-leftists also look negatively on the government’s past attitudes toward groups they view as persecuted, although some simply oppose government intervention on utilitarianist grounds.

My result from World’s Smallest Political Quiz:

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 100%

Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 30%

Liberals usually embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support significant government control of the economy. They generally support a government-funded “safety net” to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations, defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.
