i dont really know...and i dont really care where it is on the spectrum as long as i support those who share the same views.
'why does it hurt so much when i poke it?'

I picked moderate but it's always awkward for me to choose because I am conservative on a lot of social issues (abortion, gay marriage, things like that) but liberal on financial stuff like welfare and taxes.  I usually have to vote for someone who I disagree with on a lot of things because there's no one who shares most or all of my views...

I think a lot of people are that way.  I would say that I am moderate.  I think the government has too much control and is getting too big for their britches.  Taxes too high, welfare too screwed up.
The ability to reason is a magnificant thing.  The ability to ignore this ability is even more amazing.

I'll have to pick moderate too then - mostly because I am just opposite of Marista :-)

I am liberal on social issues (abortion, gay marriage, legalizing drugs) but conservative on financial stuff (welfare, taxes, death tax).  I'm also pretty conservative on state's rights and 2nd amendment rights.  But I am liberal as far as the Bush War, attack of the right wing bandits, in that I don't think it should have happened and very much for the seperation of church and state...

Probably the only issue I'm liberal on is abortion.

Its  ridiculous that you lumped Socialist and Communist together...that being said i dont agree with either one. They are distinct though..even if socialism was originally intended to lead to communism
