Three clicks right and three clicks down...more or less where I expected to end up.

Economic Left/Right: 3.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.51

Looks like I landed right on top of Tchaikovsky...and interestingly enough I would have to say he's one of my favorite composers of that era....though it's not my favorite musical era :D

Little further to the left on that chart than the Libertarian pres candidate...but about even with him up and down. Which is more or less what I expected.

An even more interesting development here:

Economic Left/Right 4.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian -1.23

Although it does make sense in retrospect. I'd rather see a true laissez-faire market economy, and kick the government out of anything to do with our private lives.

To be exact here is mine:

And, you thought I was a extreme right wing wacko....

No, you were wrong, I am just a wacko!

I think my bro in law was a -9.82/-10.66
Is that possible?

I probably would vote Democrat, if it wasn't such a bag of fruits and nuts and I didn't believe that Democrats are supporting causes such as rabid environmentalism that will serve to break America's back one day.

For example, one of my company's principal vendors is Shell. We consume 136,000 metric tonnes of a certain material from them a year. They have just announced to us that they are closing their Louisiana plant and will provide us this raw material from their overseas facilities.

For years people have been saying that enviro laws are going to kill American business. In the manufacturing area I am seeing more of it everyday at an accelerating pace. Why accelerating? Many of these facilities that are being shut down now were built in the 60's and 70's and are closing because they are reaching the end of their lifespan due to age and obsolescence compared to current technology. They will not be rebuilt in the US because it is too costly and too difficult to get permission to do so.

For a long time (20 or so years) people have been predicting this would happen and been labeled "Chicken Littles" for it by the enviro's, by the "anti - corporate" types because it hasn't happened in droves. The only reason it hasn't happened at a faster pace is because the facilities in the US hadn't worn out yet. Well, now the sky is beginning to fall.

The problem is this - lag time. These new overseas facilities will also be good for 30, 40, 50 years. So even if we said today "OOPS! We're screwing this up" the plans are already in motion elsewhere that can't/won't be turned back. Manufacturing has been the goose that laid the golden egg for the US for the last 100 years. We are now killing it in a most quick and efficient manner.

Someday America is going to miss those jobs and products, while the rest of the world glides on by on their newfound prosperity. Sadly, it will probably take the suffering of a whole future generation or better to make us try to get that back, if we even can. We showed the world how to do it, they'll gladly take the ball from us and run with it. It will be really hard to take it back.

And yep, I blame the Democrats for this mess, because they have supported the enviros so vigorously. The people who will really have to pay the price on this won't even know who Boxer, Feinstein, Waxman was. They'll just be a page in a history book. That's why even though I may be a little left of center, I vote right.

Where I differ from many others on this issue is in my belief regarding the intent of people who push for enviro laws. I know for a fact that many people here think these people are evil, or at least are intentionally destroying American industry, etc. I believe that by and large these people believe they are doing good things. Well, I don't know about Boxer and Feinstein; something about both of them makes me want to puke. And of course some of it is pandering to a naive public who has been force-fed the enviro party line for decades now.

I believe that they think they are doing good by destroying certain parts of American business, that we will be better off without it and that the loss of it may lead to a lower standard of living, but otherwise sustainable and acceptable at least to them. If no one can afford cars and OHV's, their quest has been realized. Remember, their slogan is as always Earth First! People later...

Evil is all in your perspective, we are the supreme evil to them.

And I think it is the liberal media and the liberal Democratic party supporting and doing the force feeding without fully detailing the downside of all this.

Anyone know where Kerry is on this chart?
