The LP should be placed further right than the Republicans. Remember: Coporate subsidies are anti free market, and thus should place a party with them further "left" (and also authoritarian)
Republican (and Democrat, but we'll leave them out for now) politicians have acted in favor of a lot corporatist policies for a while now. Subsidies and Regulations (especially those that act to limit competition) are anti free market which is anti right axis. The LP favors deregulation of the market, as well as an end to corporate subsidies.
Edit: The isidewith graph has different axises than the others, which would explain why the LP is technically further left on the graph.
The isidewith graph is far worse than the other one. it goes with this horrible idea that all/most leftists are "authoritarian," and right wingers are always "libertarian" or just slightly "authoritarian" lol.
