    Please choose from one of the following 7 categories that best describes you:

    1. Far Left - everyone else is a right-wing nut

    2. Liberal/Progressive - disagrees with conservatives on nearly every issue

    3. Left-leaning Centrist - agrees with liberals on most issues, but can at times agree with conservatives on some issues

    4. Centrist - can see both sides on most issues and/or does not have a strong position on most issues

    5. Right-leaning Centrist - agrees with conservatives on most issues, but can at times agree with liberals on some issues

    6. Conservative/Libertarian - disagrees with liberals on nearly every issue

    7. Far Right - everyone else is a leftist


    This is a self-reporting poll, the result of which are open to the public. Therefore, try to be honest, or you might get called out on your choice.

    Also, discussion about your choice and the choice of others is encouraged.

    I'd have to say #6: Some may say that my views on homosexuality in society and narcotics are "liberal."

    Some may say my non-interventionist FP views are "lib" as well.

    All over the place as far as politics is concerned. I try to be a realist which does not fit any of your definitions.

    Bull shit. You're opinions consistently come straight from the left.

    I am a gun owner.
    I believe in fiscal responsibility.
    I believe in personal responsibility.
    I believe in reasonable use of resources such as oil and coal.
    I kill and eat meat critters.
    I believe in term limits.
    I believe in a flat tax with no deductions.
    I believe in banning paid lobbyists for any special interest.
    I support states rights.


    I could go on but with your prejudicial limited understanding it would be useless.
    Have a nice day.

    It will be funny to see how many wingers try and portray themselves as 'centrist'

    Yep. Why I said I am all over the place politically. My views are my own.
    And I am for sure not an average American.

    Heck I even fiind myself agreeing with many points Pat Buchannon makes.
    However idealism does not mix with reality very well.

    Such as I am for balancing the budget and reducing debt. How to do that right now though is problematic at best.
