I little quiz to see correlation between politic and religious belief.
the nature of the the quiz script will make it .
right left and center have their boring conventional meaning.
I am going to define faith as theist , non-theist or on the fence .
using the definitions of the last quiz.
I will do some crunching and see what we get.

None of the above.

I'm not a big fan of politics as politics is full of mere opinions most of the time.

How do libertarians describe themselves by your poll?

Objectivists, Ron paulists, freemarketeers = Right.
Anarchists, Chomskyites, Christian Anarchists, Liberatarian Socialists = Left

I can't think of any moderate examples off hand.

As a Christian and very like an anarchist, I object tio labelling Christian Anarchisdts Left, UNLESS there is an actual organization by that name, in which case I say they have no right to use such a name.

And if it sounds funny an anarchist should talk about people having or not having rights, tough, I am talking language use and there I am a monarchist.

But I am not right nor left and do not fit the so-called centre [intentionally unamerican spelling, do not edit]'

I am in all my beliefs and actions the Univeral Heritic and sometime iconoclast [figuratively, I actually like icons not only as art], all other views are the same to me and I walk by myself. Keep your milk, lady!

Ok, so you just say that these groups should just rely exclusively on their economic views? I actually find this odd, because a person who is relatively socially liberal and economically free-market would be a moderate, but once they cross over into libertarian, they are right wing. I also think anomalies and other things make the scale a poor fit once we start going this direction. Especially given that these are distinctly different sets of ideologies that are now being forced into a metric that they tend to reject as particularly valid/useful.

Religion and politics poll - There are 3 zones: the extremist left - the center (centrists) and the extremist right. - Official USA Department of officially approved non-profit religions:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_House_Office_of_Faith-Based_and_Neighborhood_Partnerships (Invented by extremist Prophet George Bush, Jr.)(Reformed by extremist Prophet Barack Obama). - Some politicians regularly talk extremist left or talk extremist right but fairly consistently vote centrist (center of the road) only.

America has the best politicians money can buy.

Around the fence topic

Fence sitters versus theists versus non-theists?

This is why I have never felt like part of a group.

Politically left non-theist for me. Maybe edging towards left-leaning moderate on crime.

None of the above also. Atheist (without completely dismissing reality originally being created by a higher being, although i find it unlikely) and there is no currently practised political ideology which fits mines,.
