So both go into the one category.

    As for social, I'm guessing that it depends on which you are in general. So for most issues, do you fall more to the left or right for the majority of them? In other words, out of, say, abortion, gay marriage, and affirmative action (this is just an illustration, there are of course many more issues), are your views mostly left, right, or equal between them all (neutral)? And I think that it's fairly obvious that a left position on something like abortion is pro-choice. That's not to say that someone who is pro-life isn't socially left, but when looking at the composite of all your opinions, if they are mostly to the right you'd be hard pressed to convince anyone that you are socially left. If those three issues were all the issues possible, and I were at once pro-life, anti-gay marriage, and anti-affirmative action, I wouldn't be able to consider myself socially left. I think that much is fairly unambiguous.
    How about this? If someone knows of a good political test, I will take it and get back to you.

    Socially, I am in the middle because it depends on my mood. Fiscally, I'm on the right. I'm very cautious about money, although the purchases I do make are very large ones.

    Eh, here's another one

    Your results:

    On Non-Fiscal Issues, you rank as a Moderate Conservative (65).
    On Fiscal Issues, you rank as a Centrist (48).
    Your score is on a scale of 0 to 100, with 0 being fully liberal and 100 being fully conservative.

    just took the Political Brew Political Gauge and came up as a Moderate Conservative on Non-Fiscal Issues and a Centrist on Fiscal Issues. You can take the test at The Political Brew: Political Test

    I'm always in the green (for Gandhi) box.

    Socially left, fiscally left. Actually, I'm fiscally undecided, except that it I think that giving the wealthy tax breaks is stupid.

    Okay, based on my tests, which put me as center because basically one really left answer generally cancelled one really right answer, I'll just go with socially right, fiscally neutral. Oh, and NF, of course.

    But heh, I coined a phrase for my own political beliefs.
