Your scored 0.5 on Moral Order and 0 on Moral Rules.

System: Conservatism, Authoritarianism
Ideology: Capital Republicanism, Social Republicanism
Party: No match.
Presidents: Gerald Ford
04' Election: John Kerry
08' Election: Barrack Obama

Of the 498,764 respondents (6,529 on Facebook):

7% are close to you.
20% are more conservative.
30% are more liberal.
33% are more socialist.
6% are more authoritarian.
Hmm, I don't see myself as a conservative at all. I see myself as more moderate, middle of the road type.

However, being unmatched to any parties suits me just fine. I'm not registered with any political party, so I'm glad I don't match up with anything.

I find it funny that despite being called a social republican and a conservative, Kerry and Obama are my matches.

I have to say though that the spelling and grammar errors in the test don't inspire confidence, nor does its rather eccentric definition of political systems as expressions of personal morality.

You have to consider the source

I mean, only a right wing nut job source could define "ecology" as a loosening of morals.....

"People in this category will tend to have have stronger opinions about loosening the moral order (gay rights, ecology, drug legalization,...) than about expanding collective initiatives (social programs, industry regulation...)"
