People always forget that its more complicated than left and right. For social issues I'm left but with economic issues I'm right. Libertarian I suppose.

Actually the political spectrum isnt a left/right issue, its more of an up, center, left, right, because it exists in a triangle.


The problem is, you used to know where candidates stood on issues and where they would fit in the triangle based upon political affiliation. Not no more...

I'm fiscally conservative but socially moderate (maybe a little to the left) if that makes any sense.

Hey, I just noticed there are others who described themselves that way also...

Years ago, there was a website where you can answer some questions to find out where you stand in politics.

Does anyone know of an internet website where to take the questions?

Somewhere between conservative and libertarian, I'd say. Not fully in either camp

In a two-party system I find that the right has got it wrong and the left hasn't got it right. I consider myself a libertarian, yet a true libertarian's ideal does not fit within this left-right spectrum. Thus I would consider myself a centrist-libertarian, to find the balance between left and right to cancel out big government.

Right wing across the board. The only Democratic issue I share is universal healthcare (for legal US citizens).
