One of our newer MoHos, EvadingOdd, recently wrote about his Political Compass in his blog. He points to a quiz where you answer some questions and it plots where you stand. I realize these kinds of quizzes are just fun to do and don't represent any sort of scientific analysis. But, I also think that they probably aren't too far from the truth.
I took the quiz and was a bit surprised at the results. I consider myself pretty conservative in my political views. According to the quiz, I'm still right of center, but not as far right as I would have expected. In fact, I'm almost right dab in the middle both left-right and Authoritarian-Libertarian.
Economic Left/Right: 2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.08
This got me to wondering where the other gay Mormon's fit on this Political Compass.
Let me make an offer, in case anyone else is interested. Take the quiz and send me the results. I'll then compile them together and post the results. I don't need the graph, just the values for Economic Left/Right and Social Libertarian/Authoritarian. I won't identify who responded, just a composite graph with a dot for each person who responds. I think it will be interesting to see if we are all over the chart, or if there is any clustering. You can either attach it as a comment, or email it to me directly.
