Strange with all the debating we had concerning politics I tend to be flamed for being anti american (commie + treehugger have been used to describe me at one point) - yet it seems we are all pretty much in agreement politically... interesting.
I'm actually plesantly surprised with the results, I really expected at least some of you to hit the first quadrant...
Would be interesting to compare these results to what people actually vote come election time - I know voted differently than my profile, then again I change my political views quite a lot lately, I've become increasingly leftist (coming from a family that's aligned more to the right I voted that way last).
Sometimes we have to vote counter to our normal political leanings based on the fact that there are no candidates from our political party that make sense. Sometimes our political party may field candidates that are too leftist/moderate/rightist for our tastes but the opposition party may have the most viable candidate, in our view.
Of course, I've recently become disenchanted with a certain ruling party. I hate FUD, be it from M$ or from a political hack or big multi-national corporation. So, I don't mind voting counter to the way I've voted in the past.
