Where do you see yourself on the political spectrum?

Just a quick and dirty poll, nothing scientific. I know there are exercises on the Internet where you can input responses and determine where you fit in politically, but I am more interested in where posters see themselves as leaning politically.

A cynical nihilist, although I guess I'm left-leaning, by default.

Centrist but more liberal than conservative. Basically centrist but liberal on social issues.

You forgot the "flaming conservative." You know, the ones that have multi-trillion dollar tax cuts for the wealthy, while spending hundreds of billions more on military toys for an invisible enemy.

As I said, it's just a quick and dirty poll, nothing scientific.

You might call people with that outlook 'flaming conservatives' but they would probably see themselves for the most part as mainstream conservatives.

We could check the voting records to see all the Democrats who are "flaming conservatives"...

"Mainly conservative, but liberal on a couple of issues"

Actually, I'm finding I'm more and more liberal (or hovering in the center really), but if you look at who I voted for, all of the local people were the Republicans, many of whom I know personally. The President, after all, is onle one person.

Left leaning centrist, with not much inclination to align myself with conservatives or liberals. The disenfranchised wing?

So far 70% or so place themselves in the centre or close to it...rumours of the far left FYM bias looking a bit dodgy at least at this early stage.....
