    I mainly stuck to the order used when selecting your "Political Leaning" in your profile.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    also the most honest-I see "centrists" and moderates who are hard core socialist left and at least two libertarians who are very left as well

    I have been called a liberal pretty often on other forums. Which is sometimes true when it comes to certain issues. I think this is partly because I sometimes defend Obama or the Democrats while disagreeing with the Republicans... this is mostly because when it comes to the economy I'm willing to give the Democrat's plan a chance, thinking that an economy cannot turn around over night. Of course if the economy gets worse again then my defensive position will change quickly. I am fiscally conservative in a sense of believing in having a surplus and no debt... but I do feel that certain government programs are important, or at the very least are worth investing in. This is obviously on a case by case basis.

    When it comes to social issues I often stand in the middle or take the side lines... I recognize that people have different opinions and I more often than not am in favor of compromises.

    For example:
    - I'm neither strongly for nor strongly against gay marriage since it doesn't effect me, but I think at the very least gay couples should be able to get civil unions and get the benefits from that.
    - I'm against abortion, but I wouldn't ban abortions. As I said in another thread, I'd simply prefer people to choose life (the life of the child). The main exception is if mother's life would be threatened.
    - When considering people's personal freedoms I'm in favor of legalizing marijuana, but when considering the overall progression of a society, I'd prefer people chose not to use drugs. Still, I'd let each state decide for themselves.
    - I don't know if climate change is caused by human activity, but I still think we should be investing in renewable energy. If we don't, we'll be missing out on a huge export opportunity and we'll be buying more things from over seas.

    Do these things sound moderate?
    From what you've written here, I would say yes.

    The site is far, far more socially liberal than the general population but also much more fiscally conservative. It's also waaaay more right-wing than the interent as a whole, probably because the average age is so much higher.

    I always find these claims rather humorous.

    From what I remember of the statistics page before the upgrade, the site was slightly more conservative.

    There was a bar graph showing this exact thing. I guess that it was discarded in the last update. I recall the most common lean is unidentified, unaffiliated, etc; followed by centrists and moderates; conservatives of varying degrees, liberals of varying degrees, and libertarians, and then everyone else.
