I'm never sure where I stand on the political spectrum(s) because my positions overall seem to be all over the place. I've taken that ideology thingy a few times that plots you on two dimensions (Social: libertarian/authoritarian and Economic: left/right) and I always end up pretty close to the center. dead-center for economic and usually slightly libertarian on the social. But I think that thing is bunk and I really don't think the questions they ask are particularly good. For example I don't see any reason why one's views on global warming should have anything to do with political ideology scores. Anyway, here is a short list of some of the very general positions I hold. - I support having a strong military for defense. I do not support using it to bully foreign nations or to invade countries that aren't a real threat. - I oppose the Patriot Act - I'm anti-abortion but pro-choice. (meaning I think it's morally reprehensible in the abstract, but I don't think it's any of my business if someone I don't know wants to have one) - I'd vote to legalize marijuana. - In general, I oppose any and all laws that restrict individual rights unless there is a VERY compelling need to do so. And I think 99.99% of those are already covered. - I fully support the 2nd Amendment right of INDIVDUALS to bear arms. - In general, I oppose government wealth redistribution unless there is a VERY compelling need for it. And I think 99.99% of those are already covered... and then some. - I would vote to legalize gay marriage, however I do not buy into the argument that it's already a constitutional right. So what does this say about my ideological leanings?
