Let's see how we're going.

 

I got

 

84.6% Equality (over wealth)

71.2% Peace (over strength)

77.1% Liberty (over authority)

92.2% Progressive (over tradition)

 

Making me a "libertarian socialist".

I got this far. 

 

It is necessary for the government to intervene in the economy to protect citizens.

 

That's not specific enough, it could mean anything from taxation or environmental and safety regulations to economic stimulus packages. I understand that the question is useful for giving political inclinations but it is also meaningless. Is the government protecting the people from the economy like it was some fire breathing dragon, is it possible for the government to do anything at all without intervening in the economy in some way, is the government protecting the people against income inequality with taxation. These are not the same parameters.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Hmm. All just about exactly 60% for the ways I lean more, and ergo all 40% for the ways I lean less.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Yes, these sorts of tests are always rather poor and difficult to interpret and answer properly if you consider the questions literally and/or in depth, and lead to many instances of, "This is probably going to push me a certain way even though I know it wouldn't if I could just give more context to my answer..."

Yes, the test is pretty bad. Vague and/or inexact questions, sweeping statements and broad sentiments that don't hold up to any sort of scrutiny, and totally missing some pretty central issues like capital punishment and immigration and whatever else, it's really just supposed to give you a vague idea of your political leanings than anything else. I gave out only one "strong agree" and "strong disagree" each throughout the entire thing - I don't feel comfortable taking strong stances against such imprecise and undetailed statements. You go into more specific and detailed issues like that political/candidate leaning website that was posted back during election season, and then I can take stronger stances on specific issues.

I've seen worse but that one was pretty bad. And absolute absence of nuance. Oh well, it's just for entertainment and discussion purposes anyway. Like Ben said.
