    I selected "conserative" trusting that it is really supposed to be conservative :)

    It would be helpful if you arranged them in order of political leanings rather than alphabetical. I'm not sure where each one falls.

    The political line up in order from left to right would be:

    Liberal more to the left
    Liberal
    Moderate to the left
    Libertarian
    Moderate to the right
    Conservative
    Conservative - more to the right

    Libertarian would not be in the middle.

    It doesn't really fit well on an American right-to-left spectrum because it generally has very liberal social philosophy and very conservative economic philosophy. There really aren't many "moderate" positions. But, since libertarianism advocates a very limited government, I'd place it on the far right of the spectrum.

    Thus the reason for putting it in the middle.

    I agree with your statement about the libertarian philosophy.
    It can be hard too place, thus my decision to put it in the middle.

    In fact, even though I am a member of the Conservative Party (which has New York Party line ballot status) I do have some minor libertarian leanings.

    Economically--libertarian
    Socially--conservative

    And several "exceptions" to the party line. I'm a mutt.

    That is a politicaly incorrect term. At least that is what I was told at a race relations class when I said I was a "Mutt-Americian"

    You're forgetting one of the rules of "political correctness:"

    If you are said group, you can call yourselves anything you please. It's just that no one else can use those terms! :D
