    Isn't this a bit few choices? What about Radical, Progressive, Reactionary, Fascist? And odd misfits like Libertarian or Populist?
    And of course, there should be one for economic beliefs too, such as are you an Communist, Socialist, Capitalist, or Fascist.

    Some of those you mentioned are economic beliefs, not political, and some are exlusive to the USA - I wanted to make this accessable to everyone.

    then you should define what you mean by each.

    Liberal and Conservatism vary from country to country too

    Not by their dictionary definition.

    For example, in Australia, the conservative party is called the Liberal Pary! But obviously, if you were Australian & conservative, you would choose conservative, not liberal.

    but would you vote Liberal, thus making you liberal?

    Fascinating... right now, it looks like it's divided right down the middle. My theory to explain is that 'moderate' is defined by the median political views of people in general.

    However, it may help to have some clearer standards- a conservative in a socialistic country might be considered a moderate or liberal in the US.

    I chose moderate because I am conservative morally and ethically, but liberal economically.

    I think that regardless of people's political views, most everyone considers themselves "moderate". No one wants to think of themselves as too far to either side.

    Well, CountJared, I consider myself to be very liberal and only a bit conservative. I know where I stand, at least.

    Well for me as a Swede liberal means I'm right in the middle. That's why I said liberal.

    Liberal. I thought only politicians were actually 'moderate'.

    Technically, in politics, there's no such thing as real moderation...but poeple like to feel like they're moderate, so it doesn't really matter.
    And it is true, these parties vary throughout the world. I mean, what if there was an Australian here who didn't know that liberal means conservative, and conservative means liberal (or however it works there). They would vote for the wrong party!

    :p

    the American liberals are the equivalent of the French right-wing... I don't like the French right-wing, so what do I vote, huh ?

    Christian libertarian (not as in the Libertarian Party, but the school of philosophical thought) with conservative leanings.

    My views are my own, but I suppose the majority could be categorised as left-wing. But I chose not to affiliate myself with any politicians or political party in Australia.
