We have discussed where we stand on the political spectrum before, but now it seems that there is a quiz that tells us where we stand (ht Kiwiblog). Below I will tell you the results of the different authors here:
Matt: National (83%), United (73%), NZF (64%), ACT (63%), Labour (61%), Progressives (50%), Greens (46%)
Matt Comment: Very surprised with my results – I didn’t think that my views were so close to those of other parties. My main focus was on economic/employment issues along with the environment.
Goonix: ACT (82%), National (62%), UF (55%), NZF (48%), Labour and Greens (35%), Progressive (28%).
Goonix Comment: The quiz results are pretty much bang on for me. The high ACT score demonstrates my broad alignment with libertarian principles while at the same time my fundamental distaste for military action (the primary area that I disagree with ACT on). The rest of the order makes sense and I’m very happy that I’m less than half aligned with NZF/Labour/Greens/Progressives. 🙂
Agnitio: National (72%), UF (71%), ACT (69%), NZF (62%), Labour (55%), Progressive (49%), Greens (40%).
Agnitio Comment: I didn’t know United future stood for antyhing so I’m surprised by by 71% rating with them! Other then that no surprises I guess. Interesting thing about the Greens is I agreed with them 92% on environmental issues yet they still come in on 40%, just shows how crazy I obviously think the rest of their policies are! Bring on the Blue-Green party!
Rauparaha: Labour (66%), United Future (65%), National (61%), Greens (60%), ACT(59%), Progressives (58%), NZ First (46%)
Rauparaha Comment: I seem to have a fairly uninformatively narrow spread. Parties are either too socially conservative for me or too economically prescriptive. It’s nice to see that I at least don’t side with Winston on many things.
