Of these listed, I suppose I feel the most comfortable picking: Socialist, Populist, Reformist. Others apply too but I feel like those jump out to me the most.

I, of course, am personally socially liberal, but when it comes to placing my political positions I tend to view most of them as irrelevant. I feel comfortable enough in my politics at this point to openly state that I could vote for an out-and-out Rick Santorum-social conservative if I was getting a true economic leftist. (Though, I would only do so in the absence of other good and realistic options.)

I'm also baffled at how many times "Social Democracy" is left off of these lists. It's one of the most common ideologies in the world, how do people keep omitting it?

Though I don't necessarily believe Populism is a totally vacuous term when it comes to political ideology, the question this thread posed allowed people to pick Populism as part of a multiple choice answer, which I think excuses it in this case. Think of picking populism in this thread as a supplementary sort of answer to your other "main" ideological choices.
