Default Political Compasses Where Do You Stand?

After reading the thread on the US 2012 elections, I thought it would be fun to try and get people to take either this long test or this much shorter one that tells you where you stand on the political spectrum. Keep in mind these things aren't 100% accurate and it tries to get general principals and ideas of political theories rather than any idea based off the issues in your country.

I should also add that if you do not have a stance on issue/question you're asked about, it may change your result a bit since maybe if you read up on it you would change opinions, but hopefully these questions will balance each other out and won't affect your result too much.

Lastly, paste your results in this thread! If you used the first link, you can find your results around halfway down the page after the quiz. For example, I got:

Economic Left/Right: -7.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.82





For the second one I got:

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 90%
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 20%

As far as what this graph means, the brief explanation is the following:
Left: You believe the government should play a role in redistributing income and spreading the wealth to help those not as fortunate.
Right: You believe that if you made money you earned it and can keep every cent of it. The government should play a minimal role in the people's lives.
Libertarian: You believe that everybody should have civil and economic liberty, which includes free speech, free markets, etc.
Authoritarian: You believe that the people should sacrifice some civil liberties for gains in other fields. This also includes having planned economies where the government has control over what the state produces and how it goes about doing it.
Examples:
-Communism is at the complete left
-Socialism is at the moderate left
-Democrats are around the center, but tend towards the right a bit
-Republicans are at the right
-Fascism is at the complete right

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
