    I picked center. Almost picked slightly right of, but on some issues you're slightly left of, so...

    Though you vary by issue, I always think of you as slightly right of center.

    I would have to agree with many, I would say you are slightly right of center. However, I think you are like me in that you take each issue as its own and don't adopt 1 political philosophy to determine every political opinion

    Well, I've eliminated the two choices that include the word "hard" in them..........


    You strike me as being fairly moderate, though.

    Other. You have a Federalist/Anti-Federalist lean based on constitutional principles so really you can't be put on either side of the spectrum, and since you weigh individual issues based on the above principles really you just kind of "are" politically.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I've never really come across you debating economics (not really my area of interest) so I wouldn't know whether you were fiscal conservative or not. I think you tend towards the socially liberal and to me, liberal = centrist, so that's what I voted.

    Mostly it's just curiosity about how my decentralist philosophies are perceived in relation to the the modern political spectrum.

    I think I have an extreme political philosophy, but the conclusions I come to using this philosophy as my foundation tends to make my positions on the issues wildly variable within a single topic in comparison to the modern "Issues-based" view of the right/left dichotomy.

    For example, on the topic of Immigration laws, I'm vocally pro-illegal immigrant but I also support Arizona's right to pass their own immigration laws as they have.

    The same foundational philosophy being applied in both positions, but it leads to a dualistic view that fits the "extreme" left and the "extreme" right simultaneously on that issue.

    I wanted to know if holding extreme views in both directions simultaneously could be considered a centrist view.

    And the basis of that philosophy, beyond just a general decentralist inclination? Where does it come from and whose writing and theories do you refer to?

    That's a great question, but it has a very complicated answer.

    On the surface, I could simply point towards the anti-federalist and federalist papers as the basis, but that would only tell a small portion of the story and it wouldn't be accurate as to how I derived the philosophy. It merely helped me see a way to approach the philosophy.

    This is because my philosophy has evolved from my own theories about a plethora of subjects.

    If anything, I'd say that the most basic principle of my worldview is the fact that humans are pack animals and that pack animals are adapted to smaller groups with shared beliefs and characteristics.

    Modern society is more like that of a hive animal, and I believe that inherent opposition to this structure is the basis for most of the discord in society today, since most of the basic survival needs of the society are met and are not constantly worried about (In the US and other western societies).

    In truth though, I'd spend days writing a response that adequately answered your question.
