Right-wing

In some ways, I may fall on the left. I support some of social democracy.

Economic democracy is appealing as well.

Side: Left-wing

Solidly to the Left. Ideologically a Democratic Socialist, though I recognize that as our country currently stands, such a system would not work yet.

Are you a social democrat like sanders or solidly socialist(anti-capitalist and no private ownership)?

Social Democratic. Strongly believe in the continuation of private property and a capitalist economic foundation. I'd limit Socialization of industries to ones that fit a certain criteria for public cost/benefit ratio (such as health insurance, and possibly certain aspects of energy, for example).

People tend to regard me as left leaning, probably because most "radical" philosophy gets grouped to that end. Quizzes tend to mark me left libertarian. Personally, I do not think I class particularly well into either "left" or "right" since I often disagree with both sides.

Side: Left-wing

In most cases, yes.

There is a direct correlation between being left wing and having a larger penis.

Africans have big penises and Asians, who are fairly left wing don't.

Okay but what about the IQ of Europeans and Asians as opposed to Africans and Americans?

Center right. I believe in freedom and small government.

What do you mean by "small government"? How are you measuring government size?

Freedom isn't exclusive to the right.

Many freedoms are being championed by the left which is why I am center. I believe in most of the freedoms that the left wants.

I don't have a specific way to measure the size of the government, I just believe we should take away some of the responsibilities of the government. For instance, the government shouldn't be involved with paying for college. They should be responsible for regulating the price of college.

Me too.

I am an Independent, but my political ideology usually runs to the right side of the Spectrum. Say, halfway between being a Centrist at a Reactionary Nationalist Bigot! LOL

But I do have some inconsistencies in my ethos, insofar as enabling it to be neatly cubby-holed into a certain specific location of the Political Left-to-Right Spectrum.

For example....though I am usually Conservative-minded, I am Pro Choice. And now, lest you think that makes me a liberal, well, I will tell you that I am also Pro Capital Punishment.

To further confuse you, I am an Atheist, which would again seemingly push to me the Liberal and Educated Elitest/Humanist area.

But...not so fast: I AM decidedly Pro Small government, and I agree with many of the planks of the Libertarian Platform.

Confused yet?

LOL

Now you see why I am an Independent voter who has voted for Dems and Republicans in the past. I do not adhere to strict Party lines, but rather, vote for whomever I feel is the best man for the job ad any given time and in light of whatever special issues or problems are facing our Nation at the time.

Thanks!

I think it is funny that religion is used to determine what part of the spectrum people are on. It makes no difference.

I don't find your position weird at all. I don't think I really trust people who aren't independent. It is those nuances that make people seem like they aren't mindless robots.

'no regulation herpaderp'

'i'm rightwing lubrtardatian herpaderp'

Side: Left-wing

Right because I believe in Limited government, I'm pro-life, I believe Capitalism is consensual sex while Socialism is rape-that is why the Right is always right

So what do you think about Social Democratic Theory, such as is used in Scandenavia? Can it be "rape" if the people consent?

Alright the reason why people follow the example of Denmark and her concept of free higher education, scholarships and less labor troubles, along with all her neo-liberal strategies, is because they have no idea that the US tax payers' money go to Kovenhavn to bring those benefits- Socialism works just because of their significantly less growth rate, lesser population density and because they get foreign investments from countries like UK, US and Germany

There are many different left-wing economic systems, not just socialism. Also, there are different varieties of socialism, which one do you refer to?

Side: Left-wing

Though I tend to agree with the Left on more economic issues, I am firmly Conservative on pretty much everything else. So to the right ;)
