    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    I took it again this morning.



    I'm just a tad different.
    so your political positions are dependent upon mood and/or time of day? haha
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well here it is... I dont know. I felt like most of the questions on there were stupid and I dont know how seriously I would take this. I got a strange feeling however made it didnt have a good understanding of either side very well.
    left/right = 4.62
    social libertarian/ Authoritarian = .15

    I do find the second interesting. I was almost completely in the middle. Kind of amusing.

    I find it interesting that Socialist people in this country are very against authority yet, they are socialist. Tell me that makes sense.....

    You almost made it too that left bottom corner. Keep trying!

    No I get his point. The questions meant to be for conservatives to agree with were often quite rediculous forcing you not to completely agree with them or even disagree

    The same for liberals. A lot of the questions were just dumb all around.

    Re: Political Compass Thread

    We should just make a sticky for "political compass test" threads....
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Yeah, I got that too. I felt like the makers had little knowledge of either side.
