I like isidewith.com. It's more focused towards political parties and candidates, but it has one of these:
(Note it's upside down from what we've been looking at so far.

It seems I've gotten slightly more authoritarian, but not by much.

I just tried to take this test, and ran into too many questions that I couldn't answer with the options available.

Did you see an option like 'More options'? There are lots of answers for each question, and an 'Other' if those aren't enough.

Since I already sent in my ballot i decided to see if my political compass matched my vote. And this is what the results gave me ...

Economic Left/Right: 1.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.1

Just so you know I register as Republican but my religious bent is Agnostic. I also am very for gay rights, gender equality and racial equality. So I am not as conservative in those aspects. I also tend to lean more towards saving the environment too. On the other hand there are some conservative things I do agree with such as less government, strong military, gun rights, border security and free market. There are some things I am on the fence about, such as abortion since I can see both sides. And I think each situation needs to be considered. For instance rape or incest I would be more towards abortion but then late term abortion I am not for at all. So yeah on the compass I was near the center in the purple zone.

EDIT: This one i did not like how it was worded ...

"Mothers may have careers, but their first duty is to be homemakers."

I agree the first duty is to be homemakers but I disagree it should always be a mother. I think Dad's can be homemakers too!

Yeah, I read the homemakers question and had no clue how to form an opinion on it.  I am not even sure what first duty is supposed to mean.

I read it as meaning putting family before work.
