This thread is inspired by a YouTuber I'm subscribed to Cody Webber. Cody uploaded a video pretty much stating that he felt he doesn't fit into the category of liberal or conservative. So my question is, do we need a new title for persons who feel they don't fit into either category? 

What do we call a person who cares about freedoms and universal equality, but at the same time does not bat an eyelid at objectionable speech in which may seem offensive to some "pc liberals" 

What do you call a person who instead of telling others "do not say that that's offensive", will alternatively say "I disagree with you / you are wrong and here is why. Do you still hold your view? Why?" 

Combining all of what I suggest here, politically (and socially) speaking what category would such persons fit into? I'm not so sure liberal or conservative is accurate at all.

I self-label, it works for me.

Most people in the U.S. don't vote ideologically. They vote self-interestedly.

I believe they call people in the middle of the political spectrum, "moderates".

If I had to create a term, I would call my political views 'correctism'.  The guiding philosophy would be: My opinion is right, so stfu already.

Sounds a bit like solipsism. 

STFU-All-readyists!

or

STFU-I-want-a-nice-dayist! This could be me. I just want a nice day, before I'm dead!

I'm one of the people who doesn't fit into liberal or conservative. For the most part I am a democratic liberal. I support gay rights, women's rights, etc. But I'm super conservative on immigration issues.
