That wouldn't be accurate, according to political compass's scale. @Presidentinsertname would be way less authoritarian and even left of the moderate Republicans that you list. I think your placement of Joe Manchin is your most accurate placement. President Insertname is basically about as left-right as Democrats operate (not as they campaign, however), but he's far less authoritarian than both major parties, but more authoritarian than the standard Libertarian. He's kind of in a unique slot. 

You can look at how PoliticalCompass places its politicians and parties on their website. 

I said it because of the economic issues where he is in the "Center of the Right"

Societally he's indeed as Moderate Democrats electors are...

That's why I putted him rather in the Left Side of the GOP rather than toward the Right of the Democrats but I do not disagree with you however ^^.

Reagan is really easier to put xD. #Tatcher

You're also right about one serious point @vcczar, the political platforms of the Parties are seriously Authoritarians.

Economically I am a 50/50 between Capitalism and Socialism but on a political view I am really close of the Libertarians, that creates a small problem of classification even if I consider myself as a Social Liberal.

The National "Socialists," or Nazis were not at all Socialist, Marxist, or Communist - the "Socialist" part of the party name was a complete misnomer. In fact, Hitler detested Communists and Socialists, and put them on the slate in the Pogrom for extermination along with Jews, Romani, Jehovah's Witnesses, non-Whites, homosexuals, and several other demographics. His hatred of Communism is also what triggered his unprovoked breaking of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and invading the USSR, one of the biggest decisions that probably doomed an Axis victory (the other one - the bombing of Pearl Harbour - he had no say in, foreknowledge of, or part in planning - in fact, he first heard about it happening like most people in the world at the time did - on the radio news broadcast).

In Europe you would be what we call a Liberal.

In US the translation is moderate Right.

You're something like the Left-to-Centrist-wing of the Republicans.

You're Right on economy and Centrist on Society sooo...

You're ideologically close of politicians like Mitt Romney or the Bush.

You could also be linked with Joe Manchin in the Democratic Party at my opinion.

Or John Kasich too.

The Liberal Party of Canada was very much in the European mold of liberalism even as late as the end of the premiership of Jean Chretien, in fact. It was Paul Martin who shifted it suddenly to a New Left-style - which is strange given Martin's much more ideologically right-wing earlier political career.

There's a good quote from Hitler where he says what kinda socialist he is. He detested the international socialists because they were his primary opponents first and foremost but also because of big ideological differences in terms of views on nationalism etc.

You know, I love this forum xD.

Patine, Paul Martin was Social Liberal.

The Liberal Party of Canada has only has Liberal its name, under the Trudeau the party is much more Social Democratic than Social Lib.

For American friends here is the EU translation:

Here is the French political compass:

ppf-03-09.jpg

 

A bit oriented however it shows the coalitions.

A more recent:

(Note that the values of the result are reversed, for example I am close of Macron, at the same altitude but just in the other side of the line).

Both major parties are actually in the Blue Square, according to political compass. If accurate, it shows how our government doesn't really ever represent half of the people.

Same

Edgiest years of my life. Communist(Berniebro, Lenin poster, tendies Communist), overweight (~180 pounds of fat, barely 100lb max bench, as opposed to 156 pounds of lean muscle now, able to bench my own body weight), short (5'9), never played any sports (do track and Basketball now), listened to outdated Rock and Metal (mostly rap now) never exercised (exercise >1 hour a day now), could barely speak English (speak 3 languages now, though barely fluent in two, passable in the other one), no friends. Very sad years. Granted, I was turning 14 at the time. I wish I could go back in time and set myself straight earlier lmaoo.

Nationalist movements have used it to communicate with other nationalist movements worldwide. It can be useful.

Cool, the only time I've tried Duolingo was for Russian. It was hard. Easier to just take classes.
