    Where did your quadrants diagram come from? I ask because I don't consider those four quadrants to be the primaries. – Venture2099 May 6 '17 at 10:29

    False premise. Here in Switzerland most right-wing politicians are overwhelmy liberals, right-wing concervatives exists but are extremely in minourity, and they are (in my opinion, unfortunately !) regularly defeated in elections. Perhaps if you'd reduce the scope to a signle country this question is salvageable. – Bregalad May 6 '17 at 15:24

    Why is this on hold? Mods - this is not too broad at all and I have answered it. – Venture2099 May 8 '17 at 22:53

    I'm inclined to say there are no Libertarian Left parties. It's a logical contradiction: without a strong state, equality can't be enforced by the state. Not that such logic is stopping public opinion; "government should stay out of Medicare" is not a rare opinion in the US. – MSalters May 9 '17 at 9:52

    This question is void of a lot of context...we need a lot more info on the definitions of the terms used in that diagram--not to mention what political parties (and nations) you are referring to. – user1530 May 9 '17 at 17:08
