All go take this test.
It takes a few minutes, like a short IQ test or something.

Remember, to be HONEST with YOURSELF.
Not just true to the "correct" answers, based on laws and such.
It needs to be your views, to give us an accurate representation and see how we all correlate.

Well... I am further left here, but less liberal.
Clearly I am somewhere between my two results :)

Maybe a bit... but.. also... It's kind of accurate. You can see which answers lean towards which manifestos - if you actually know the manifestos. The Authoritarian Right is literally "fuck your rights, tax everything, arrest everyone, make stuff illegal, go to war" etc...
Which, frankly, I feel isn't actually in line with most peoples real feelings. So many people are just brainwashed that they don't even realise... What they think and what they feel are two separate things. Which don't line up. In many cases anyway.

But yes. You shouldn't just go basing your political stance on an online test :p

Well here's my results to @Zornuzkull's objectively less biased survey. Personally I think I turned out a bit more right of center than I actually am, but all things considered the results were pretty accurate.

I really wouldn't worry about these test too much, if I were you. They're just there to give you a general indication of where you might lean towards, if you didn't know already. They are not meant to be accurate - and there are dozens of quizzes like these all over the internet.

Out of boredom, I took another shot at the one of these quizzes, and pretty much pretended to be some religious nut, who hated government, wars, and other races, and was a nationalist protectionist, and somehow ended up closer to the center than my above results - which reflect my distrust of corporation, while being for fair law and order for everyone - not really giving a shit what race or religion you were. I guess supporting some regulations for corporations, and some wars, makes you authoritarian. And I guess being anti government, while supporting laws based on religion, and racial hate (immigrants) somehow cancels each other out.

Knowing the internet in general, I'm going to guess most people are on the leftist, libertarian side. Mostly left, some right, but definitely libertarian.

Christ! the only way to get Authoritarian on that list is to arrest its creators and send them to a work camp, and even then I'm sure they'll just say I'm a Conservative or a Liberal

I thought we were just talking about newgrounds in general, say if you took tom fulp, the creators, the mods, the popular artists, all its users, what do they individually and all together make Newgrounds to be, I would say its a very Libertarian place only because I don't think Authoritarianism really applies here, and I wouldn't know whether it would be left wing or right wing because I don't actually know what entails left or right political beliefs, like, left believe in equality, right believe in equity (or is it the other way around?), something like that, so maybe newgrounds would be more left? depends who you look at

Since I scored pretty much right on the center I'll chime in and say that leaning to the center is more about being moderate, and it has absolutely nothing to do with objectivity.

Solid, your results are already suspect as is. It's like you tried to play it safe by almost always picking the middle question of neutral, which is almost the same as having no opinion - and we already know that you are very opinionated when it comes to politics. I would suspect that your closer to right time than you really want to admit.

LMFAO typical edy.

I also expected to lean further to the right. You yourself tried to end up on the right yourself and only got closer to the center according to an earlier post. So your idea of what makes people qualify as right wingers is pretty suspect to me. You yourself claim to be a republican and according to the test you are a left leaning liberal. I at least admit to being newly republican. I still have years of left leaning values left over and switching my stance on which party I belong to did't simply make me instantly replace all of those overnight.

Being opinionated which i am does not reflect my stance on policies which now that i think of we have not really discussed policy too much just issues of the day, or things trump said. I do however strongly feel that liberals falsely label anyone and anything they disagree with as far right, and you expecting my result to reflect your own perception is only living up to that.

I at least admit to being newly republican. I still have years of left leaning values left over and switching my stance on which party I belong to did't simply make me instantly replace all of those overnight.

And in that same post (the one I played out that one scenario), I said that theses quizzes are not meant to be taken serious because they are not that accurate - there are dozens of these quizzes on the internet, and you will end up with different results in each of them. You knew this, which is why selectively chose one over the other because it gave you the better results, something you could brag about to others about, even though it allowed you to run away from choosing an either or situation, and does not reflect your past comments.

These quizzes, besides being either or, or allowing people to escape from choosing a side (or being plain dishonest with themselves, intentionally, or not), try to categorize how far people are in the political spectrum, in a generic, easy-to-fit, way, based on the quiz makers interpretation of what defines liberals and conservatives - which is one of the more complicated things to do. They give you a couple dozen generic questions, which can either make you look more extreme or less extreme, and are often subject to ones own personnel interpretation of those questions, or make you feel that you have to answer them in a certain way because of what you believe the other side is doing - even though you don't normally care. Or you don't agree with any of the answers, but those are the only answers they give you. To sum all this shit up, it's complicated, and flawed. People can complain about unfair they are, and it's true to some extent, but they only say that shit until they find one they like the results of with, despite all the flaws - it's just choosing results at that point.

One of the glaring flaws in these quizzes is the scenario I pointed out. I went with a Christian white nationalist extremist, who believes in laws against other races, religions, immigrants, and gays, while distrusting government and wanting personnel freedom, and also being ambivalent towards corporations, and hateful towards wars and globalism - oh, and being hateful towards socialism when they didn't perceive it as socialism that hurt them. The end result of this made it seem that this type of person is almost moderates, even though they had extreme views, more extreme than any person on this board have espoused. So, the way people answer these question, no matter how extreme thy are, they can easily cancel out the negative modifies to make them look less extreme in these quizzes, and an argument against the left.

As I said before, my economic views tend to be more liberal (but not extreme), even though I hold certain conservative stereotypes when it comes to hard work and success and the need for welfare Though, my social views tend to be very moderate, as my views on race, religion, and gays, and women rights, are more ambivalent, and tends to be a philosophy of letting them be, without the need for laws to protect them; but I will side with whatever to keep things balanced and fair, and I am against laws that try to suppress any of these groups, to make them unequal and giving one side an advantage over the other - not to mention anything that may affect me, personnel. But according to these tests all this makes me is a social liberal. Do, I agree with that? No. I consider my social views to be moderate. But I won't complain if people call me a liberal, even if I don't believe it actually reflects my overall views that are often in contradiction to that - though I will challenge them on certain issues. That's a difference between you and me.

So, yes, you are pretty much on the right with RightTime, in my opinion. You go out of your way to defend conservatives proposed laws, and politicians. And you constantly defend Trump, who policies are pure far right activism. Given your history to exaggerate, or minimize, things on the political spectrum, to benefit your argument, I'm inclined to believe that you are in a state of denial about where you stand, where you seem to think your more moderate, or non-partisan, than other people on this board, than you really are. This leads me to the next part of your post...

Being opinionated which i am does not reflect my stance on policies which now that i think of we have not really discussed policy too much just issues of the day, or things trump said. I do however strongly feel that liberals falsely label anyone and anything they disagree with as far right, and you expecting my result to reflect your own perception is only living up to that.

I was reading an article on Fox News (You know, the network that claims to be "fair and balanced") and Sean Hannity was claiming that they were not pro-Trump, just strong supporters. I though of you when I read that today. In fact, when I looked at far right sites in general, and read their mission statement, they all seem to claim they are combating the left leaning media. Sounds familiar? The thing is there is a lot of dishonesty from people, and from those who support a political ideology. They have to make their cases that they are the good guys, fighting the bad guys, and that they are much more moderate and fair than the other side. It's all perspective, and no one want to be looked upon in a negative light, but all that makes them are dishonest cowards. So, I'm sure you know how I feel when I read this type of stuff coming from you.

I don't really give a shit what you want to believe in, son. I may not agree with other points of views, especially on politics, and that's all good, but I respect people who at least try to be honest, and straight, with me, or try to give me a reasonable argument. I don't have respect, or patience, with those who exaggerate things, or pretend to be something they are not. So, stop with the excuses. If I can accept that people can view me as liberal, then you should have no problem being viewed as a conservative.

Ho hum. As always, you got your panties in a wad saying things I never said, because you don't like were things are headed, and you start moaning some nonsense of how you are misunderstood, or some shit. I never said you were far right, unless you think Righttime is far right - which shows just how confused your views of the political ideologies are. I said you are on the right, with the conservatives, and you are just in denial, and making up excuses.
