I reject your hypothesis that a persons political beliefs can be broadly predicted using some basic knowledge of Open Source and Free Software principles and established social and political theory. I find this claim so absurd that I have a hard time arguing against it. Political beliefs are a multidimensional bundle based on a complex value system. I am raising this point because I fear that simply stating this claim in public may seriously damage the reputation of FSFE. Please refrain from doing so :-)
