Where do you consider yourself on the political spectrum?
Pundits tend to divide America in two on a tidy, linear scale: Either you're conservative or you're liberal. Differences between one conservative and another conservative can be explained by describing one as "more conservative" or "less conservative" than the other, and the same applies to liberals.

Where do you consider yourself on the political spectrum?

3. I'm further left than liberal.
I'm damned near a commie. Nah, I'm probably somewhere between liberal and socialist.

6. At least three axises are needed
These things drive me crazy... conservative about what? Liberal about what?


REPRESENTATION: 1-Monarchist > > > 10-Direct Democracy

MONEY: 1-Economic Libertarian > > > 10-Communist

AUTHORITY: 1-Radical Civil Libertarian/Anarchist > > > 10-Totalitarian

On my little made up scale here, I'm at about R-7, M-5, A-2

12. I'm so ultra-conservative I think Cheney is a communist!
:sarcasm:

Liberal. I think most people on this site are pretty progressive. I have nothing to "conserve" except my dignity. And even that's negotiable. :evilgrin:

15. Bella Abzug speaks for me.
With heavy dosages of John and Robert Kennedy, Mario Cuomo, and Bill Bradley.

Actually a fairly diverse, if highly liberal bunch.

19. ah hell, ruggerson, thank you for that photograph of that dear soul.
She described herself once as "an ass-kickin' broad," and by god she could be just that, but she could also reach for the stars with the gentlest touch.

Dammit I miss her.

24. O yes, you said it. Some time ago I listened to her on the podium at the
convention. I was halfway young then and still forging my opinion of public figures.

After listening to Congresswoman Jordan, I had the model for public service and personal integrity which she positively exudes and which I have not seen nearly as much of or as often since.

The woman was a champion.
