Nearly every US government leader type(except dennis kucinich sp?) is in the right wing/authoritarian section, including Obama AND Bush. Why are most people so oblivious to this?

I ended up being a slight left leaning libertarian, which I already new. Its sad that none of the leaders in america even fall into the proper section of a "true" american, which is against big government and taxation. Apparently people think a liberal fascist is somehow better than a conservative fascist.....but they both suck.

Wow, a lot of Dalai Lamas, Nelson Mandelas and Ghandis around here. Why don't we start an international peace movement or something

Here's some info from wikipedia on "leftist libertarian":

Left-libertarianism (sometimes synonymous with left-wing libertarianism and libertarian socialism[1][2]) is a term that has been used to describe several different libertarian political movements and theorists.

Left-libertarianism, as defended by contemporary theorists such as Peter Vallentyne, Hillel Steiner, and Michael Otsuka, is a doctrine that has a strong commitment to personal liberty and has an egalitarian view concerning natural resources, believing that it is illegitimate for anyone to claim private ownership of resources to the detriment of others.[3][4] Some left-libertarians of this type support some form of income redistribution on the grounds of a claim by each individual to be entitled to an equal share of natural resources.[4] Social anarchists, including Murray Bookchin[5], anarcho-communists[6] such as Peter Kropotkin and anarcho-collectivists such as Mikhail Bakunin, are sometimes called left-libertarian.[7] Noam Chomsky also refers to himself as a left libertarian.[8] The term is sometimes used synonymously with libertarian socialism[9] or used in self-description by geoists who support individuals paying rent to the community for the use of land. Left libertarian parties, such as Green, share with "traditional socialism a distrust of the market, of private investment, and of the achievement ethic, and a commitment to expansion of the welfare state."[10]


It is funny that the majority of US and world leaders cited fall in the right-wing authoritarian segment of the grid, and it's also interesting to note the contrast between the Pope and the Dalai Lama.

My favorite link is the 2008 presidential campaign leanings. They're mostly grouped up over there in the top right corner.

The concept of a two party system has failed us badly.

When I went to the link it gave me a result. I must have taken this before.

I'm somewhere left and below Gandhi!
I must have been serene that day.
