Wherever you draw the center line in politics - the line between left and right -, are you more to the left or right of what you perceive as center? It's not about party affiliation but general perception. As you see yourself.
Pretty far right with a few exceptions.
I think of myself a moderate conservative. Sometimes I'm to the right sometimes I'm to the left. But usually right.
I'm very libertarian on the social issues(except abortion), but hard Right on guns, immigration and taxes.
Left, but only because I feel like the middle has been steadily moving in the wrong direction since the start of the Reagan days.
Idk really, I consider myself pretty centrist. I guess I'm somewhat socially liberal, although I'm a strong supporter of firearm rights. Also, fiscally conservative.
I am on the left, but have my fair share of conservative positions. They tend to be classical liberal principles that Republicans often stand up for.
Social or economic line?
Social I am left.
Economic I am right.
The left and right model is outdated the model my pfp is more updated you would be in bottom right quadrant with me
See my profile pic, lol. Not as far into that quadrant as you, but same one.
Yea well where I am also has too do with civil liberties stances and mostly economic freedom also I am probably extremely socially liberal tbh I am for ending the drug war altogether and legalizing prostitution
Left. Extremely far left within typical US politics.
It is much better to use a circle instead of a line
Pretty darn close to the center, I would think. But maybe left by only maybe a tad.
We have moved the center line left since Teddy Roosevelt. Now it is way too far left
I strongly disagree if we're referring to economics. Dwight D. Eisenhower, a republican, made it very clear that he felt that any US politician that questioned the key components of the New Deal were not part of US politics. Nowadays that position is to the left of every candidate except Sanders. Democratic candidates such as Obama and Clinton have been likened to moderate 80's republicans, a description Obama himself cited.
Why does it matter?
I didn't say it matters, just curious.
Fairly left. On the diagram, I'm left-authoritarian. I'm about a half-way diagonal from center to the bottom-left corner.
I'm there with you.
Far left, I put all of mainstream American politics on the right, because they all accept private control over production, with KeynesianSpiderman center-right, Monetarians well on the right, and Austrians and Objectivists on the far economic right. The left is occupied by those who want social control over production, center left are market socialists, than collectivists on the left further and lastly communists or similar economic phenomenon where the means of production are held in common.
Lmfao Keynesians, not KeynesianSpiderman, my autocorrect filled in an account name from another app.
Lmao if we're putting all capitalist economics, including Keynesianism, on the right, and all socialist economics on the left, what's in the middle, corporatism like in fascism?
I guess social democrats in the newer sense are pretty appropriate for the economic center. As for Fascists and Nat socs, Strasser would be center, Hitler center right, Mussolini on the right, and Pinochet on the far right.
My personal views are pretty far right, but not really the republican version of right because I don't think the government should involve themselves in people's personal decisions at all.
Generally, right. But depending on the questions asked I can lean left economically.
I'm right of whatever line you draw!
Falling off the left side.
Really? You seem pretty moderate, so what's very left?
Susan, I would think you're pretty centrist, especially because I haven't heard you advocate for anything like workers owning their own workplaces ans stuff that I would consider to be on the left of the spectrum. (I agree with LeftLibertarians description above)
Center-right with an occasional liberal hiccup 😹
True for me, with the directions opposite. Center left, with an occasional conservative hiccup. :)
Senate that's pretty much me. Actually from what I've seen in VC I agree with you a lot.
