    Perhaps. What American liberals consider to be pressing issues, I do not necessarily agree. What American liberals think is an important way of looking at the world, I may certainly think it is dangerous. On the other hand, I never quite identified myself as an American conservative either, never really wishing to be a conservative. I just found myself to be seen as more conservative than I thought I actually was.

    This little exercise is obviously skewed in a certain way with a very limited world view. The laughed raucously when I got my score. I will have to say the way the questions are structured leaves much to be desired. I answered the best way possible with such a limited choice of options.

    I did it for grins. Labels aren't my thing. I know some people feel lost without them. Which is tragic.

    Do conservatives on DP accuse you of being a liberal and attack you?

    I'm pretty liberal and libertarian, but there are some issues which I am conservative/authoritarian too
    where did that chart come from? I see the attachment, but I don't see the site? Is that that political compass site?

    Sure (like I said, I don't blame them really), but on the same day, I can easily be called a conservative by someone else on the liberal camp, or as someone here once put me... "the reich wing".

    Literally, the only thing I have come across is the knowledge that I have a significant gap between myself and the Democratic party base who still take many New Left positions for granted. This is far aside from comments on this forum.

    I can't do binarism. It's not that I'm wishy-washy, though. On the contrary, once I know that I've come upon a good idea, I'll shout its benefits from a mountaintop. I just can't swallow a whole ideology and cut myself off from a whole world of thoughts.
