I'm always on the centrist-left part (social moderate). Is that a bad thing?

What's your stance in the scale or spectrum?

I fall on the left/center left economically, and libertarian socially.

To clarify my economic views, I fully support social welfare systems (they need work, but they are fundamentally a good idea), but also support the lowest amount of taxing possible and less wasteful spending. Government should be spending it's money on making America better, instead of making the Middle East worse and corporate lobbyists richer.

Yeah, it's amazing how accurate those tests can be.

I did left/center and I grew that way the older I got. Registered republican until Reagan got elected. Saw the moral majority and split. Then Independent.

About the same spot as Milton Friedman on the x/y axis..

Measuring just right/ left is crapola. As a libertarian I am left on social issues (except when it comes to protected classes) and right on economic issues.

I agree with that part.
