A Left-Leaning Libertarian. What I mean by that is the part of the Libertarian message I most disagree with is the laissez-faire attitude towards businesses. As much as I would like to believe that a free-market economy will eventually lead to high quality products at low prices, I don't really see it happening. Or like someone said in discussion of that tax plan in the Politics folder, I'd like to believe that lowering taxes on corporations would lead to lower prices, but I'm afraid it would just lead to higher corporate profit.

In a way, I think I'm a bit Communist too. I was thinking about business and their employees. The employee does something that makes money for the company. In turn, the company pays the employee a salary. If the company turns a profit, then obviously they are paying their employees less than they are worth (employee value > employee pay). So I do think the whole economic system is based on exploiting people. I just haven't figured out what the best answer is yet.

As much as I hate admitting this, I'm a registered Republican.

I know, it makes no sense to me either...

I'm registered Green, though I lean more to the Dennis Kucinich side of politics. I am pretty socialist on many issues, but have some pretty conservative views on things like pornography and drug usage.

I'm a Liberal, but don't tell anyone :o

I'm in the middle of Canada, though, so my vote really means nothing. Albertans think they have it bad? Eh, not so much.

Aside from Atlantic Canadians, Manitobans have no voice.

Ahem. Provincially, I vote New Democrat. They keep me employed.

I guess I'm Moderate Libertarian because I have conservative ideals but I don't like the Republican party very much. And I'm for abortion(needed ones) and gay marriage(or atleast to keep it the states decision and no amendement), so i don't really fall within the Republican party lines very well. And I don't really like the Democrats either with their bashing of everything. I just believe that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as your not hurting anyone else. And I'm not that religous but I do believe in god, although I don't go to church. And thats probably a strike against me with the Republicans and I don't god hates everyone who looks different or lives a different lifestyle.

Eh, I'm still trying to find my place in politics. I took a couple of tests, and most of them said Natural Law. I checked the site and found myself agreeing with most of the stuff on there. Of course, ask me what I agreed with then, and I wouldn't be able to remember.

Conservative. I'm big on an assertive foreign policy that acts in the best interests of the US. Socially, I'm fairly conservative but also libertarian/moderate on a number of issue (capital punishment, government regualtion of TV/pornography). As far as economic positions, I'm generally in favor of the free market and lower taxes. I'm also in favor of smaller federal government with issuess being handle by the states.

Obviously, I'd indentify myself with the Republican Party because I agree with most of their platform, but there are several current issues (spending like the goverment hit the lottery, completely lax on illegal immigrations) where I really wish they'd go back to being actual conservatives.

I'm a cold straight liberal. This comes as a shock to absolutely nobody.

I hate the hypocrisies of both American political parties, but the Democrats are a lot closer to where I fall.

I think Hillary should make it a point to NOT run for president.

I would consider myself classically liberal which counts as very conservative today. I hold to a federal government that should get out of our lives and defend our freedon. I also am very much in favor of rights for all. But when I say all, I mean all.

And again, I think this suprises no one here who's been in politics.

I'm a libertarian. I almost always vote democrat though, so I'd go with a "left-leaning libertarian" label.

There's really no party that I totally agree with, but the libertarian party is who I identify the most with.

Ideally I am a Classical Liberal(Libertarian Foreign policy in the post 9/11 world just doesn't work for me), but when that just doesn't work out I go with NeoConism.

Leninist? Didn't know you guys were still around.

Over the last few years, or as I realize just how dead the American dream is becoming, I am increasingly leaning left economically.

Socially, I'm a mixed bag. For the most part, I've got old school right wing views that alot of people laugh at. Though, I am STRONGLY for separation of church and state and anti-censorship.

What Do You Consider Yourself Politically?


Anyway I'm a economic conservative for the most part and a social liberal.

I dislike both the Dems and the Reps, and while I think the Libertarians have some great ideas they generally seem to have their heads stuck up their asses when it comes to human nature.

I would've voted for Hillary before she started hanging with Lieberman. Now I just wish that she doesn't run, because I'm pretty sure she'll just fragment the Dems even more and deliver us another Republican President.

Of course, I wouldn't mind a fiscal conservative in office. But I'm tired of the Bible thumpers.
