Economic Left/Right: -0.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.26

Just barely left and more libertarian than authoritarian. Sigh, no famous people sharing my position. Guess it could have been worse, eg dead centre... would that mean total political apathy, or just a completely balanced and sane individual?

What do the following have in common?

1. Politically correct SMS.

Well, I've heard of you, and you have your own website. So yes, I guess you're famous!

Then again, you're not in the same political position as me. You're further west and further south. Tsk tsk, a little extreme aren't we, young man?
