    Political lean colors ideology and how one see's the world. Food for thought.

    The purpose of this polls choices were to isolate variables, for my own purposes. They were not intended to assuage you-as a libertarian you can no doubt dig it.

    My political lean is not left or right because I reject such a spectrum as truly meaningful. Perhaps include an option "not left or right" instead of not American. I am not taking personal offense, merely pointing out your method is problematic. Given responses by other posters, I am not alone on that point. If you want a truly accurate poll, you need to include options for everyone.

    Furthermore, can you even provide a definition of what "left" or "right" actually means? That too can differ per person.

    Libertarianism is its own spectrum, its interesting that you reject this one. I will continue to pick poll options as I see fit and you are free to do what you'd like.

    Not sure what you are trying to say. You are free to make polls however you want...but I am free to point out why your way of doings things is wrong/inaccurate/annoying.

    Suit yourself. I guess some people just like ignoring helpful suggestions.

    Yep.
    That would be the start of getting an education. the free part that so many people still don't take advantage of.

    Fascinating reading. The hard truths many want to avoid in serious discussion about race.

    Because you explicitly stated you would ignore my suggestion.
