I am a libertarian right and scored the following:

Economic Left/Right: 4.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.51

I'm in the same quadrant as Milton Friedman, so it's not all bad.

Did it bother anyone else that the Pope is in the same quadrant as Mugabe, Arafat, Stalin and Hussein? I can see how, given the questions, they would come to that conclusions. Still, he hardly seems to belong in that group.

Also, I noticed that the presidential candidates are in the same quadrant. Sometimes people talk about the emergence of a third party in the U.S. I just wish we had two...

Then:
Economic Left/Right: -3.50
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.00

Now:
Economic Left/Right: -5.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.72

Hmmm, I drifted more left in 2 years, but I'm becoming more centered in my views of the Fed.

I moved from being like Ghandi to Mandela.

    I think it may have been my strong answers on those sex and religion questions that might have shifted me.



You may have stumbled onto something there. Capitol Punishment is more towards the center, while having the government control what goes on in the privacy of your own home would probably push you much more towards the Authoritarian side of things.

I thought I was going to be a lot more Left/Libertarian, even though my results are socially left it's not as much some others here... Does this mean I have to work harder

One thing to rememeber about this is that it was created by the Libertarian Party, so things are going to be skewed a little bit. For them, the Pope is in the same area as other leaders who tend to support a large amount of control of some institution in people's personal lives.
