I'll update mine because I'm following Earth around now apparently.  I introduced him to the atlas (sorry guise) and now I feel the need to return the favor...or something else nonsensical.

Abortion: Support fully
Separation of church and state: Support fully
Education: I'm fine with state education. Do not support state post-2ndary education.
Environmental Issues: Pro-regulation, within reasonable limits.
Affirmative action: Strongly against, it's racism
Gun control: Strongly opposed and armed.
Death penalty: Support, with strong dna proof as a necessity for the sentence to be carried out. Support for 1st degree murder and extension to forcible rape in similar cases.
Flag burning: I don't care.
Euthanasia: Strongly support. The individual ought to exercise power over their own life.
Prostitution: Support, tax.
Immigration: Against illegal immigration. The states need the ability to deport more easier, especially repeat criminals. No illegal should be living off a single tax dollar. Come here legally or get out.
Gay Rights: No special rights.
Drugs and Alcohol: Full legalization and taxation. States should have power to enforce ordinances without fraternization of federal govt.
Censorship: No
Gambling: Legal and regulated.
Language: status quo
Health care: no state health care
Embryonic Stem Cell Research: support some state funding
Warrantless Wiretapping: oppose
Unions: support

Economic Issues

Taxes: lower whenever possible
Trade: low regulations. anti-protectionist.
Welfare: unless truly disabled, you should be working.
Regulations: few
Space Program: private or not at all
Energy Policy: shotgun: nuclear, fossil fuel, alt energy, anything else. break dependency on Saudi's and others.

Foreign Policy

War: rarely if ever support, if only to maintain status quo
United Nations: oppose
Israel: Palestine
Foreign aid: none unless it is in direct interest of US
Iraq: get out
Iran: don't bother
North Korea: ""
China: personally I'd like to see China circle down the toilet, but there's nothing we can do about that for now
Russia: just play along for now

TJ proves how useless the political matrix really is once again.

In what way? I think my matrix scores are about right: social conservative, economic center-right.

Your scores seem about right. Maybe more of S +5, hardly matters. A critical check on the abortion issue could push it more positive. The PM could use some improvement as a mentioned in the PM scores thread, but it's far better than the Political Compass which used to be the standard.

Thanks! We're actually the majority here. I'm just an out-and-out liberal while most of my fellow Kentucky Democrats are socially conservative economic populists.

Oh, yes.... I remember the big conversation about the Democratic registration advantage which was supposed to hurt Rand Paul. I imagine that, it's kind of like West Virginia to a degree - economic populism going back awhile - but still uberconservative.

This reminds I last filled this out in 2007 when I was on the right, time to get cracking on a new version so everyone can know what a communist I've become.
