    The definitions you gave aren't quite broad enough since they don't allow for the overlapping areas like the secular right wing, which includes nationalism but not isolationism. In fact very little of the right wing is isolationist, it's more of a traditional right wing thing. As for me, I'm a secular far right libertarian. Those three things aren't mutually exclusive.

    So far:

    Far-Left Ordinary Intelligent Caring Progressive World Citizens: 0

    Traditional Left Emancipators of the Proletariat: 4

    Centre-Left Red Tories: 5

    Classical Liberalism Immoral bourgeoisie capitalist oppressors: 2

    Centre-Right Suspiciously conservative immoral bourgeoisie capitalist oppressors: 2

    Libertarian Anarchists: 2.5

    Far-Right Evil Fascists: 1.5

    I'd say on the left of the 'Centre-left', however I don't like to be too ideological, I prefer pragmatism. I support, as an example, some of the following ideas:

    Economy: Acknowledging the benefits of the efficiency of market economies and the redistributive structure of planned economies

    Tax: Low VAT, low bottom rate of income tax, low business rates, higher top rate of income tax, higher inheritance & capital gains and a wealth tax

    Social issues: Pro abortion, euthanasia, gay marriage etc, but pro immigration quotas, pro patriotism and pro free speech (Can't stand the new trend towards extreme social liberalism, mostly found in young, middle class university students)

    Foreign policy: Defensive realism, non interventionist, pro external and internal sovereignty. Support higher expenditure on the Navy and Air force with cuts to the Army

    Traditional Left
    - You believe in economic nationalism and big government. - In principal but it's never worked.

    - You believe in making tough and unpopular decisions. If faced with no other option.

    - You believe the government should not interfere with people's lives. - Could mean anything frompolicing people's thoughts to Social Services acting when someone's at risk

    Liberal cuck - You are a cuck and proud. You place no value on borders, history or ethnicity. If a non white guy came home with your daughter you'd gush that your future grandkids would be diverse and you could show to all your cosmopolitan friends how non racist you are.

    Cuckservative- You espouse traditional conservative values yet you are a civic nationalist who believes that mass immigration is a good thing and creates wealth.

    Yes, I'm discriminative, which is why I'm able to make careful and decisive judgements.

    Learn the difference between 'discriminative' and 'discriminatory' before inadvertently giving someone a compliment.

    Secondly, you sound typical of someone who castigates others with legitimate concerns about mass immigration and the failure of multiculturalism in western countries (particularly Islamic values being seemingly incompatible with secular British ones).

    Of course, I'm 'moronic and short-sighted' and a '[discriminatory] ********' (and probably a 'racist bigot' as well) for seeing communities which are being destroyed, as a result of freedom of movement of (predominantly unskilled) labour and mass immigration, leading to our own people ending up in poverty and out of work.

    Get a grip.

    If you want to get pedantic about grammar, "Discriminative" can be used to describe either prejudice or fair distinction.

    How exactly do i sound typical in this way? I never said anything specific about mass immigration, multiculturalism, or Islam. You seem to be defending your ideologies when i haven't even attacked them.

    I am aware that immigration has issues, and as i said, not once did i express that I'm all for free movement of "Predominantly unskilled labour". However, some people will always be in poverty, regardless of how many immigrate.
