One of the things we all need to keep in mind is that political compass is not a North American group.

The political definitions and language used is based in Europe/Britain as are the creators.

Liberal and conservative mean different things on political compass than they do to people living in the US.

@ehBeth,
But neoliberal means the same everywhere. A global word for a global scourge.

@Magforce16,
Its taken things like this to make me realize I am a progressive. A social liberal and a fiscal conservative. My politics is Green-er than I thought.

@McGentrix,
well that's the lowest I've ever come out against a Republican candidate
usually I get 40+, have hit 60 with a couple

7% agreement with Trump

interesting when you consider that some people say his positions reflect the Republican party even if his messaging doesn't

I don't believe that the entire party's moved that far off my radar


(my numbers for Clinton, Stein and Johnson were pretty much what they were on other similar tests)

I would like to meet 1 person who doesn't consider themselves a fiscal conservative.

@maporsche,
I don't think anyone who supports the level of defense spending the US does is a fiscal conservative whether they might be under the influence of cognitive dissonance or not.
