-.- you say it as if it's a bad thing, Jenn. I'm a socialist too, and don't consider it a bad thing. It just means I would look out for my fellow human....(to me)

Socialist =/= communist.....

I got tagged with "Strong Democrat" -- Social Liberal (100% permissive),
Economic Liberal (35% permissive). Last time I took it, I got tagged as an Economic Conservative. I keep oscillating on the economic front, it seems.

As for the labels, I disagree with them. Bottom right, below where you are, should be anarchist, and where anarchist is now, should be anarcho-capitalist. I'd say that bottom-left curving tip of Democrat is closer to Green territory, too.

Being Socialist isn't a bad thing, either. Sure, it's got the baggage of collectivism, but in the modern sense of striving for a classless society, how can you fault that?

It's just surprising to me. I was pretty sure I was more on the libertarian side of things, but I suppose it was the economic front that got me. I think I don't spend much time thinking about economic issues so I don't usually take that into account when I classify my political views...

Jenn, you're not a socialist. You just took an online poll that oversimplified economic matters. Worry not.
