The Political Spectrum

Brad deLong presents a useful list of political dimensions for thinking about where a candidate or party fall on the political spectrum: 
  1. Pacifist--Militarist
  2. Cosmopolitan--Nationalist
  3. Egalitarian--Hierarchical
  4. Liberal--Authoritarian, and 
  5. Individualistic--Communitarian
These categories may be more useful than a crude "left/right" designations.  Where does Ted Cruz fall on this spectrum? Hillary Clinton? Jeb Bush? Scott Walker? Bernie Sanders?
