    If you are asking me in the context of Indian politics then I've no choice among these because Indian political parties compromise, alter their ideology as per situation.

    Well in India, right wing is supposed to be the preserve of only "Hindu Nationalists".

    I'd like to call myself as right wing on many policy matters.

    I am asking this question from the 'core-definition' perspective, not the diluted dogma we see in this country
    The Left wing and Right Wingers we have in our country are just plain pretentious. Under the skin the majority are socialists.
    Yusuf, can you or anyone create a poll as well on this thread ?

    We had a thread that had a short quiz that decided your political compass. People should take that test and post it honestly as that would be more accurate than just saying what you "Think" is your political stance based on hearsay

    http://defenceforumindia.com/forum/...al-divide-do-you-stand-left-centre-right.html

    By the way, you can have plenty of left-wing conservatives and right wing liberals. We have plenty of both in India.

    Apropos to the French National Assembly (1789-91)constituents from where the left-right terminology originated. The Left Wingers were the egalitarian, reforming, group who had "liberal" values and didn’t ascribe to the Right Winger's "rigid" view which said class-hierarchy, tradition and its associated inequalities were just. These groups sat to the left and right of the President, respectively based on their affiliations.

    So, are you a leftist because you feel or think its ‘tough’?

    I am a libertarian to the core, at least thats what i think i am;)

    My stance is that individual freedom is the most important thing of all else- except perhaps it goes against the neighbor's freedom and the State's progress.

    Economic ideology- Center Right- The govt's only job is to ensure the market is not monopolised by MNCs. If one has the potential to become rich - he should be allowed to become rich. If one is a lazy fat ass, who does not want to improve in life- let him die. People should be responsible for their own lives. Just because i earn more money because i can- it does not mean i have to subsidise the income of some fat assed idiot.

    Sex, Culture, Religion- Nothing is wrong unless it hurts others directly- screw ten women who wants sex with you but you cant forcefully have sex with even a sex worker. What Gays indulge in is none of my business.

    Holy Hindus can worship Cows in their homes for all i care and drink its pee , but dont force it on others and dont ask others to stop eating beef.
    Same for muslims- do whatever you want but respect the state and its laws- Just because you worship a differant god does not give you the right to have a differant set of laws and a reservation. Same for Christians too. And Buddhists are the Best(not that Lankans- no way).

    The kind of conversation we see sometimes in SB*, it looks like the Battle of Barbarossa.
