There is no such thing as "communist," "socialist," or "capitalist." Everyone is a mixture of different ideas.

Capitalist beliefs in terms of economic policy with very democratic, left-wing views on human rights.

Well that's not the European vision of a capitalist.

If communism was actually a functioning system that would be Willy Nilly. Marxism has some good points to it...such as the inevitable imploding of the capitalist sytem.

I consider myself a socialist though.

Because it doesn't make any sense. In the US, when a Republican becomes president do all the Democrats just move somewhere else?

well, there are people who never considered the soviet union to be a communist state. in fact some of them called the fall of the soviet union a great victory for socialism because one of its greatest enemies has perished. they also don't consider any other "communist" state to be even remotely communist. i suppose that answers this question.

i'm not replying to the question in this poll for similar reasons. people have different ideas about what a particular ideology is. all i can say is that i lean strongly towards left libertarian ideas (american libertarians are right-wing and therefore something else).

Wishful thinking.

Capitalism is an economic system (sigh) best served through democratic forms of government, preferably those that always hold the rights of the minority paramount. The collapse of the capitalist system has been foretold ever since that pompous fraud, Marx, first took his crayons and scribbled that goofy nonsense. It has only gotten stronger--because Adam Smith was right.

Political tags are irrelevant.
Pick one out of thin air.
People divide themselves politically into two camps: those who want others to be controlled, and those who have no such desire.
The former are idealistic altruists, always seeking the greatest good for the greatest number.
The latter are suspicious, surly curmudgeons--but they make more palatable neighbors.

the economic system we live in is not what adam smith described. neither communism nor capitalism have been tried in their pure forms.
