    Cool questionnaire. A little more middle-of-the-road than other people in this thread: (-2.25, -3.49) but lower-left quadrant like everybody else. Could there be a <gasp> liberal bias in ASM? Poor Bill.
    Heh... I found it interesting that once I had my results nearly everyone else who posted theirs were about what I'd expect, compared to mine - except yours, Randy. My result did surprise me because I'm fairly conservative on many issues and I certainly couldn't be described as a pacifist! Now I'd like to see Igor's and Jingle Bell's numbers. lol Tai
    It may surprise some of you "pidgeonholers" out there to know that I have a
    colleague at the University that thinks I'm a "left wing, "Peoples Republic of
    Boulder", "Jane Fonda type", of liberal. (It doesn't help when I bring up
    the fact that I think we should have a universal health plan, like Canada
    does). And that I hate guns. And those who are destroying the environment.

    So don't pidgeonhole me as a right wing conservative, cause you JUST might be
    wrong.

        Why did you direct this at me, Bill? I didn't mention you at all. I was
        laughing at the idea of the liberal bas in ASM, a truism if ever there was
        one.

            I agree, though perhaps usenet is overrepresented by more liberal USians. Or
            it is in the newsgroups I frequent! I easily fall into the liberal category
            for social policies in this part of the world.
            But I found something odd too. I consider myself to be socially "left" since I generally think that people should do what they want as long as they don't hurt others, but economically centrist.
            I guess it *is* all relative. The economic centre line used must be far more
            to the right than I would have guessed.

                I think the person who invented bottled water was a downright genius!
                Not that I think it's superior to tap in any way. But wow, to get
                people to pay for someone else to put water into a bottle????
                Brilliant! Dare I say it.... more brilliant than Space Bags!!
                Certainly more successful.

                  Wow, looks like I have the most libertarian score on this group.

                  My sweetie (looking over my shoulder as usual) just remarked that
                  libertarians are gun nuts hiding out in the woods. I don't like guns.

                    The Prime Minister of Canada. It doesn't offend Canadians when people in

                      Sheila, I'm nearly exactly in the middle, but just in the authoritarian
                      left. (Economically more liberal, socially more conservative.) Hey, that
                      puts me aside Pope John Paul II (er, but sadly also Arafat & Stalin)! ;-)~

                        I think it might be the newsgroups you like. Someone (maybe it is
                        Igor) is always starting threads here cross-posted to
                        misc.survivalism. Not a lot of liberal thought in that group.

                        I easily fall into the liberal category for social policies in this part of the world.
                        But I found something odd too. I consider myself to be socially "left" since I generally think that people should do what they want as long as they don't hurt others, but economically centrist.

                        Me too. And this in spite of the fact that I _know_ we americans
                        almost elected Bush as president, whose economic plan can be best
                        summed up as reverse Robin Hood (anyone remember Dennis Moore? Then
                        we thought it was just a joke.)

                            The problem is that many "libertarians" in the sense of the rank and file of
                            the LPUSA really aren't all that libertarian -- too many of them are
                            socially-conservative ("authoritarian" in the view of compass) and
                            economically leftist only in the sense of "I object to taxes."
