    Re: Left or Right?

    Too many conflicting definitions for me to be able to answer this question coherently. I am first and foremost an authoritarian and a progressive; I consider myself beyond the petty dichotomies of democratic politics.

    Fair enough. If I could find a consensus about where I fell, I'd have no problem stating my affiliation as such.

    You're definitely right wing, however you'd probably be lambasted by certain individuals if you identified as Conservative, as they seem to think it's synonymous with Libertarian, so Other is probably the safe bet.

    I'm slightly left of center overall. On specific issues My views range around a lot though.

    I am a conservative, obviously.

    Oh and Reagan's quote is silly and an oversimplification of what life actually is.

    Re: Left or Right?

    I support Gay marriage, believe in very strong environmental regulation, progressive taxation and think our country is dangerously close to an oligarchy with only an illusion of citizen participation in the process.

    I am also a strong supporter of Israel, am absolutely dead set against Islamism, have very mixed feelings on abortion and absolutely loathe the way the global left has become so reactionary that all it takes is the term "right wing" applied to most any subject to get them to support it's opposite.

    American Conservatives usually call me liberal or worse. The illiberal Euro leftists usually call me "right wing" or worse. I must be doing something right if I can manage to be both simultaneously.

    If I had to pick I'd pick right.
