    Left or Right?

    Based on the American political system would you say you were left of center or right of center?

    Specific party affiliation is irrelevant.

    Re: Left or Right?

    Well, I think of myself as more liberal, but every time I do a nolan-chart type thing, I end up smack in the middle of centrist, leaning up towards libertarian. So, I don't fit here =(

    unless you are absolutely neutral to all issues, you gotta be either left or right of tap dead center. up or down doesn't matter....for this poll anyways.

    Left, as far left as set left goes.

    It'd be funny to see if this poll ends up getting jacked up as well

    Well, according to those graphs, I'm up of direct center. I'm very right on some issues, very left on others.

    care to share? And do you mean that most of your views are either extreme left or extreme right and they end up balancing each other out, or do you actually take moderate positions on some issues?

    Actually, since it's not a public poll (i.e. no way to tell who voted how), we'll never know.

    Socially, I think I'm about as liberal as it gets. Fiscally, I'd say I'm prudent than conservative. I don't mind the fact that I pay a higher percent of my income than others, 'cause I can afford it (I give a lot to charities in any case). I support most discretionary spending, most adamantly scientific research and education. On the other end of the scale, I would probably dismantle SS and Medicare (I support welfare for those who need it, I don't support these programs as they are not welfare. I think these two programs are incredibly inefficient compared to the returns I could get on my own). I'd probably also cut a good 80-90% of the military.
    Some positions, I'd say I'm a moderate on, but not most. All those charts say I'm a libertarian leaning centrist, I think I'm more of an anarchistic liberal :P
