I’m calling BS on that because I don’t believe we should be the world’s policeman.

The center of the graph doesn't equal the center of society. That's not how this works.

Even based off the results from just this board, the people at the center are right of society.

Being most of us don't like Trump, how did he get elected if people at the center are right of society?

Electoral College; land talks. It's a b*llshit system.

Almost 10 million more Americans didn't vote for him. Clinton beat him by 3 million.

2). Righties like him less for behavioral issues than policy.

You didn't answer the questions. This thread is about political compass. Where did the 62,000,000 votes for Trump land on the political compass, if they are right of most of the posters here? Right in the center? Where BDK landed or right of BDK?

What I was getting at, was where is the line that separates the right from the left, if the center isn't the center?

I don't know the answer to that. We need a large enough sample.

All I'm stating is that the if you're at the center the graph, it doesn't mean you're at the center of society or "moderate." ell, it could be that you're to the left.

Well then why does it specifically use words like "Centrist", "moderate", "neutral"?

Sounds like you're just making shit up again.

Yep. Hardly a definitive test based on the choice of questions and wording alone.

Mankind is progressive by nature. The public tends to lead and the power establishment begrudgingly follows or seeks greater control to prevent change.

I don't disagree with Trip on this. If the homerun leader has 50 HRs, the middle of the scale would be 25, but the average might be 18.

The other factor is weight. If a person (me) thinks a strong economy benefits the most people in the country compared to any other campaign platform, and is the most important issue, it would be weighted more than the other categories. The weighting could affect voting.

I can't believe people are still using this test after at least a decade. There's so many problems with it.

1. The question about whether businesses should be punished for misleading people? Does anyone from libertarians all the way down to socialists think false advertising and fraud by businesses is all right?

2. Who really wants the government to make certain sex acts illegal? I don't think even most evangelicals want to do that today.

3. And there's a question about astrology (LoL)

4. For the question about what's good for US corporations is good for US as a whole, we can disagree on what taxes and regulations corporations should have on them but no one except the fringe of the fringe of the left could really question that it's not good for the average American if corporations don't prosper and compete internationally.

Questions like these are probably why JSO can be listed as an economic centrist.

all you need to do to create a test today is ask 10 questions

2 about taxes
2 about abortion
2 about gun laws
2 about healthcare
2 about over seas involvement
