The questions are slanted Left. Way Left.
I can't answer them. Many are not understandable.
I'm too far "Right" and "Down" and off the square.
It must be a trick !!
1-4 - that are economic questions. (Hmm... I've seen them somewhere... communist manifesto?)

Your question doesn't make much sense to me. You're the one claiming the results are offset to the left. That is to say, you claim you're not so far to the right of the political spectrum as you actually are, that the test results falsely depict you as being more to the right than you actually are.
Disputing this I replied that, were the map actually displaced to the left as you claim it is, I would not be smack dab on the left edge of it. I would be more towards the center.
Yet I am right on the edge. And I do not disagree with the evaluation of my politics, as far as the left-right dimension is concerned. However, I am far more authoritarian than the graph depicts me as being.
As to what questions are missing?
Well, I'd also ask people taking the test how much they agree or disagree with the following as well:
1. Private property is continued theft from the commons and what ought to be public property by default.
2. Money should be abolished.
3. Or its issuance should be completely nationalized, the exclusive purview of government, and a guaranteed minimum income instituted.
4. Right of inheritance should be abolished.
5. Use of force against counter-revolutionaries and reactionaries is justified.

I also wish they had a "who cares" option...
I am libertarian left leaning closer to the center than the fringe. I find it interesting how many are coming up libertarian though. And weather it left or right libertarian I don't see where it matters as much since basically their belief is that the gov''t should stay out of alot of issues.
