Please do not turn this polling thread into a political pile on. In fact I would like it if you only explain why you categorized yourself as you do in the poll.

Mods: I am asking a little tolerance here in asking you to allow this to stay on the main page for the remainder of the week so as to maximize the respondents.

Thanks Vlad

I guess I will vote moderate since I am mixed on many issues.

For instance, I support the war in Iraq but I also support gay marriage.

Edit: right-leaning moderate.

Socially I'm with you. As long as you pursuing your happiness doesn't infring on any one else's rights to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness then go right ahead and do it. It's all good. Gay marriage? Why not let them suffer, too? Sex with your goat? Whatever. Just don't ask me to watch or, frankly, give a s**t what you're doing.

Fiscally I'm very conservative. The govt. needs to get the hell out of my pocket and get back to only doing the very few things the Constitution said they should. This trillion dollar budget crap is just that: crap.

Foreign policy I'm a real mix. I would cut off nearly all foreign aid, I'd bring our troops home from just about everywhere. However, I'd also be bombing Iraq and Korea into the stone age. Psychos don't need nukes.

Left-leaning moderate.

Abortion, welfare, gun control, affirmative action: conservative

Taxes, government, defense: moderate

Environment, education, gay marriage: liberal

Immigration: no thoughts on it

War in general: moderate

War in Iraq: against, though the majority of reasons for supporting or rejecting the war which I've heard from people are not particularly based upon broadly conservative or liberal viewpoints, but rather upon specific incidents, so Iraq is sort of outside the whole conservative/liberal paradigm.

I don't.

I have tendancies toward both spectrums based on my over-arching philosophies of Libertarianism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism), Individualism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Individualism), and Objectivism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivist_philosophy).

I also think what passes as Conservativism in today's political landscape is a farce, and am critical of it because of this belief. Thus, I am painted as a Liberal, mostly from indoctrined neo-conservatives who believe in Conservativism to the point that it crosses their theological boundaries in a way that they disagree with. That's when you'll see State's Rights "conservatives" become theological liberals, ready to force their will on you by act of government. I hate that crap.

I consider myself non partisan(though I voted for left leaning moderate). I've never understood people who vote strictly partisan. In my opinion, our system of government is one of the most broken democracies in the world. It seems to no longer represent the people...more of a representation of big money, special interest groups, religous groups etc., more than the common man. I blame this partially on the lack of real choice, the 2 party system, and lack of voter participation(which may be a caused by the 1st two).

Nice haiku.

I'm right leaning to center, but there should be a poll or link to a test (I remember an online test to see where one is on the quadrant of behavior make-up one has. If anyone knows about that, please link it.)

Are you conservative, depending on response to abortion, gay relationships? I saw an article on all 14 gay republicans in JOCO. I figured that was an oxymoron until reading the link on Abe Lincoln's view of what to do with the slaves.

These terms are bullshit, for the most part. I don't think people make these types of decisions, their decisions don't make their types.

I'm for first trimester abortion regardless of the situation the mother is in if she feels she wants one. however I'm against partial birth and late term abortions.

I also believe in a maximum wage, however we should get rid of welfare except for mothers that were bailed on by deadbeat dads and people unable to work. And getting rid of medicare is just freaking stupid.

Good call. I agree w/ everything this post says except

Abortion - if you werent raped. If you can't take care of a baby keep your damn legs closed. This OTC morning after pill is going to turn our youth into a bunch of dirty sluts.

Maximum Wage? WTF, unlimited earning potential is what makes us better than Canada.

Immigration - there are legal ways for people to come to this country and I have no problem w/ that. It is the illegal ones that can't get a driver's license, buy car insurance, can't go to jail, can't pay taxes, work for cash and send it to mexico. the list goes on and on.

South Park Republican is the closest characterization I'd identify with. Most of them are FOS, and it's more humorous than maddening how FOS they are. PC talk and censorship is an effing joke. Gays, minorities, women, etc. are just folks, no more or less than anyone else, but also not innoculated against being poked fun at, so long as it's good natured.
Government should do what it's good at, defense, economies of scale, standards and oversight, as good as it can, and stay the eff away from what it just effs up, social engineering, entitlements, complicated tax codes, feel-good claptrappery, censorship.

I'll admit that I'm undecided on this one. I'll wait to find out more information. However, my gut reaction to it was revulsion.

These are 2 freedoms taken away by the Bush administration.

Because Pamela Anderson is not segregated to another forum like Politics is here. If you read the thread post all the way through you will see that I asked the moderators for indulgence.

The reason the thread is over here is to obtain the maximum number of responses. The BB population on the Washington DC forum is a very small subset of the entire active BB population.

You know, I used to consider myself more of a left-leaning moderate, but the more I've paid attention to politics, the more I find myself squarely in the "liberal" camp.

Of course, I'm pro death penalty, think late-term abortions are wrong, and find the Democratic party to be amazingly inept (not so much due to ideology as due to poor leadership and a lack of a spine).

Not sure if that disqualifies me from the liberal camp.

But if you were a supreme court nominee, you wouldn't get the liberals vote because your aren't lock step in tune with the liberal.

Hmmmmm, from the look of the poll......all you need to do is get a boob job, and dump your boyfriend....and you would have all kinds of CP members cyber-flirting and knocking at your door (once ENDelt posted your address to spite you). ;)

Mark,

I was just trying to say that if a liberal wouldn't vote you in as a SC justice, you aren't a liberal.. According to their own litmus test... That was all i was trying to say. I wasn't trying to politicize it at all.

Then you (and others) mistake deference for the office of the President for ideological orientation. My priorities.....defense/national security, taxes, and paring the federal government (although both parties fall short there, only one defends the priciple, at least rhetorically), place me, on National political concerns, with Republicans more often than I'd like--although I did vote for Clinton in '92, and Gore in 2000. Socially, I'm well left of center--but think those issues are best left to the states.

I have no idea what I should be labeled. I think the fact that there are only a select few labels to fall under is part of the whole problem. I'm very conservative on some subjects, very liberal on others, and somewhere in the middle on the rest. And there are some subjects where I don't even know if my leanings would be considered liberal or conservative.

I took the political compass, and came about as close to dead center as you can:

Economic Left/Right: -0.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.26

Never fear, I'm finally here. Better late than never I guess.

I describe myself as a moderate between Conservative and Libertarian ideals, but I don't think that's how you are using "moderate" here so I labeled myself "Conservative." I don't think I'm that far away (on a broad range of issues) from some of the people who have taken the labels of "moderate" and "centrist" though (e.g. Taco the centrist, Pitt Gorilla the centrist, Simplex3 the uncategorizable, Vlad the right leaning moderate who loves to dress as a liberal for effect, etc. ;) ).

One thing's for sure though, I want us to surrender to Ben Laden and eat our own young and I've got "W" tatooed on my right butt cheek.... :p

I'm either a liberal or a left-leaning moderate, that much is clear. I selected liberal, however. I'm not entirely sure I'm far enough over for that title, but I'm not afraid of it, so why not.
My sentimates exactly.
