If you were to choose a political faction in the U.S what would it be? Be sure to vote and then leave a description of why you chose the faction that you did. And no, the fact that you think elephants or donkeys are pretty is not a description. There are no third parties here. If you belong to a third option, decide whether that party is conservative or liberal and then just vote I/L or I/C.

This should be interesting. wink

Independant/Conservative would be your choice then.
Meh to devote yourself to one side or the other is foolish. Something's work some things don't. Don't fix walhats not broken but toss the old garbage. Political parties simply divide the nation and keep it from accomplishing things it truly needs too because of pride.

Depends who you ask. I've been called both a right wing vigilante nut and a godless liberal leftwing nut.

Liberal.

I believe in:
- Management of big business (i.e. corporations)
- Equal civil rights for all
- Universalized/Public health care
- Reduced military budget/activity
- A secular government (both in name/influence, like the Justice system)

To name a few.

However, that does NOT mean I am against all conservative ideas. Some issues are best dealt with conservatively. I still think most liberal policies are preferable.

I consider myself liberal. I don't think religion has a place in government. I believe people have a right to do whatever they want with their bodies. I don't approve of the death penalty.

Depends on how we take his words. "Liberally conservative" could mean that he's largely conservative whereas if he meant his second statement to be "conservatively liberal" it could mean that he's somewhat liberal.

But really, this isn't much of an Extended Discussion thread.

Well just because people aren't at each other's throats about politics doesn't mean that this isn't an extended discussion thread. As you said, it's all about how you look at things.
Independent Liberal by American standards. Independent moderate by Europe's standards.
