I'd like one of those kinda self-positioning swing-o-meters you see on some websites, but can't find a free one. So a poll it is.

Describe yourself on the left-right political spectrum, as you think best fits you.

And yes, of course, nobody can really be defined in such simplistic terms. We're all a potted mix of thoughts, ideas, persuasions and ideals that could be described in lots of different ways and from different positions on the typical political spectrum. And yet, may as well give it a shot anyway hey ;)

It's anonymous and you can also change your mind whenever, so feel free to pick whatever you like...

Well you obviously have nothing better to do. :ROFLMAO:
Well I had a search and can't find it. It was from last year, might have been pruned away accidentally. Annoying as it had both Political Compass and the more detailed political compass type charts in it.

I probably won't reply to this poll, for several reasons.

First, I kinda reject this whole "what side are you on" thing anyway. I think it's tearing our society apart. And the poll has no "I don't know" answer.

And second, I kinda legitimately don't know. I have a diverse set of beliefs that cause me to sometimes sound like I'm left and sometimes sound like I'm right. Am I either? Am I somewhere in the middle? More one side than the other?

If I had to take a guess I'd guess I'm center left, but I really don't know. I wonder if we would be better off if more people felt no loyalty or dedication to either side. Because as a result I don't feel either side are my enemy, and I'm willing to listen to both.

Life has no meaning, yet I keep searching...
The truth is, none of us fit neatly into any box.

I voted "left," the regular basic bitch type.
I would have preferred "colorful" options like socialist, communist, national socialist, centrist, center-left, center-right, libertarian, authoritarian, anarchist, etc.
