I'll say conservative, both socially and fiscally. I'm quite liberal on foreign policy, as a pacifist, and that helps to balance the other conservative traits.

Anarchist.

I consider myself moderately left. I don´t like those categories like "social" "liberal" "libertarian" or whatever.

Instead of being left or right or center, we should just all be "above".

I'm a centrist, possibly with slightly leftist leanings. I believe in having decent public services, and believe we should pay the tax to have them, but also believe in having fewer employee regulations such as the minimum wage. I'm a liberal when it comes to laws, as I'm for the legalization of cannibis and am pro-choice and pro-gay marriage.

militant moderate. strongly liberal on some issues (stem cell research, right to abortion, gay marriage), strongly conservative on others (the sheer wrongness of abortion, marriage being a sacred contract, no affirmative action), moderate in most others.

anarchist = socialist
libertarian = capitalist

They used to mean the same in English too, but then the evil capitalists stole our word

Socially libertarian, fiscally centrist (in a general EU context).

I'm the same as that.

In a US context I'm a dangerous commie extremist.

I would love to say i am a libertarian...but in reality i think i'd have to invent my own system of politics. I'm far too opinionated to agree whole-heartedly with anything already in existance.
