This originally was going to be just a contribution to bipeds general election thread. Then I thought it deserved a thread on its own.

Anyway, I'm aware of the limitations but it is of some use:

Hmmm. I'm not sure I would describe myself as exactly libertarian.

Some of the questions were a little open to more than one interpretation, but for what it's worth.

Interesting, even the Socialists and the Greens are too authoritarian for me.

So far we can say that we seem to vary a fair bit in their economic opinions but we are all anti-authoritarian.
I wonder if this is the case for all atheists or disbelievers?
