Who is using the left/right spectrum?

The onlt reference to left I can think of in the game is having a left leaning college state. Though I'm probably utterly wrong here.

I myself have never even heard of the nolan-chart. I suppose the point I'm trying to make is that people are more familiar with the left-right thing. (possibly simpler, I wouldn't know)

The left/right spectrum of politics is what the game uses to determine political outlook based on your choices.

The nolan-chart can be found here ( and was developed by David Nolan, the founder of the modern Libertarian Party. I find it's a more accurate measure of one's political stance then the left/right spectrum that is so prevelant.
