Step 1: Take the Political Compass Test

Step 2: Reblog with

  • which political box your result falls in
  • what you consider your political beliefs to be

The left-right axis is the economic scale. The up-down axis is a social libertarian/authoritarian scale. The descriptions on the site are actually pretty interesting.

I got the center of Libertarian Socialism,

Apparently I am an anarcho-socialist, which has a pretty nice ring to it.

Basically right at the intersection of anarcho-communism, -collectivism, and -socialism. Just barely on the -communism side, if I squint. Sounds about right.

I’m smack in the middle of anarcho-socialism.

HIGH FIVE, SESTRA.

right between anarcho-collectivism and anarcho-communism

anarcho-socialist all right all right

Border of Social-Democracy & Libertarian-Socialism. Sounds like me.

Right on the border of Anarcho-Socialism and Libertarian-Socialism.

I know Senator Davis is cool and her endeavor deserves attention, but guys today SCOTUS just overturned a law that stopped states from discriminating against the poor and people of color when it comes to voting; there needs to be more outrage and attention to this too come on guys.

Yes this happened too and it is a bunch of bullshit.
Links aren’t working right since I’m on my phone, but it’s not hard to find on Google.

and what do you know, minority voters are already getting fucked over in… texas:

Just two hours after the Supreme Court reasoned that discrimination is not rampant enough in Southern states to warrant restrictions under the Voting Rights Act, Texas is already advancing a voter ID law and a redistricting map blocked last year for discriminating against black and Latino residents. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued a statement declaring that both measures may go into effect immediately, now that there is no law stopping them from discriminating against minorities.

saying women shouldn’t be allowed to get abortions because they were the ones who had unprotected sex is like saying smokers shouldn’t receive treatment for lung cancer or drivers shouldn’t receive treatment in a car crash because they knew the risks when they got a driving license

I think it’s safe to say you’re probably smarter than a lot of the government.

SO WENDY DAVIS COULDN’T FUCKING EAT, PISS, SIT DOWN, DRINK, LEAN, OR STOP TALKING BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE “BREAKING THE RULES” BUT YOU CAN FUCKING BREAK THEM TO VOTE AFTER MIDNIGHT AND JUST FUCKING PASS THIS ANYWAY 180,000 PEOPLE ON A LIVESTREAM JUST WATCHED YOU BREAK YOUR OWN LAWS SO YOU CAN FUCKING STOMP ON MINORITIES

THEY ARE DISGRACES TO POLITICS, AND THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING.

UTTERLY SHAMEFUL, THEY ARE ALL HYPOCRITES WITHOUT AN OUNCE OF HONOR OR CREDIBILITY.
