It depends on whether we're talking theory or practice. In practice, I'd call you slightly left of center. In terms of theory, you have a very totalitarian approach to the structure of government, which might be construed by some as being right of center.

I don't believe in political alignment.

I'm not going to answer the poll because it is insufficient. You are a cynic and a rationalist, and as such most of the time you stand with thoughtful reason. Reason is on a different axis from these two.

I don't know enough of your politics to have an opinion.

I have to agree with the others that your political views don't fit in your poll answers. The political issues that matter most to you are basically ignored by both ends of the political spectrum. You seem to be pretty moderate on most issues.

Also, it's tough to identify those answers as absolute positions, and answers are relative to the answerer. For instance, I know I'm conservative, and so since you're more liberal than me, you must be somewhere on the liberal side...

And thus, the reason you're getting more conservative answers than liberal answers is that more of your friends are liberal.

And so perhaps the people saying you're in the middle are the closest...

You don't fit well on a 1 dimension scale. On a 2 dimension I'd probably call you slightly liberal on social issues and slightly conservative on political issues but I think adding a 3rd, government/military axis might be even better (though I've never seen one like that in practice, just the 2D)
