Psst... that's a libertarian, darlin'.

I don't like to associate with any given political party. :)


Judging by the description, I should consider myself to be Libertarian too.
But I feel the same way about associating with political parties.

We're pretty much in the same boat! :D

No single part seems to match exactly what I feel. I consider myself mostly liberal, but I have wildly different and conflicting views on various things.

Generally I avoid politics as usually I end up having to choose the ones that are 'the least bad', and that I find depressing.

I cannot stand politicians, no matter where they stand, but I agree with many conservatives and no liberals. I just believe in common sense and traditional values.

Social issues like abortion and gay marriage and drug legalization have me pegged as a hardcore liberal. I do not support capital punishment, but only because of the immense risk of killing innocent people presumed guilty, not because I think no one deserves to die.

Fiscally, I'm much more conservative, especially with, say, Social Security (privatize!), but I'd love to see a more government sponsored health program.

I'm very very liberal, and would consider myself a democrat. I'm pro choice, pro gay marriage, pro stem cell research. Against the death penalty. Legalize weed. If there's an issue I'm almost always on the liberal side.

I mostly feel like most topics don't concern me... but when I think about it and skim through some things I read here, I think to be pro-monarch.
Like, with a nice King/Queen, who also cares for the people he/she reigns over, but also has the possibility to make quick decisions when forced to.
Would have to be a very wise person.

But that's utopia, so...

Rather democratic/liberal.
Let people live with/love whom they want, it's their darn choice. AND none of my business.

Also, legalize weed OR prohibite alcohol, 'cause as far as I see it, it's at least equally dangerous, yet alcohol is said to be more damaging... or so... I didn't really put up with it, but weed seems ok (stoned people won't beat you up).

But I can't make any always-legal statement, because I have to think things over issue by issue.

I'm so far left as to almost be socialist.

In the US we need universal healthcare, food and housing. Our poor are treated so awfully. I'm pro-choice, pro-gay-rights, pro-stemcell research, pro-free speech, pro-preserving the environment, pro-disability rights, pro-preserving of culture, pro-immigration, pro-peace and I very much believe in a sepparation of church and state. I believe in the death penalty, but only in the most severe cases (basically 1/20th as much as we use it).

I might actually swing as a conservative in other countries. It's sad how convoluted the words have become here.

I am a well-informed swing voting weirdo. I officially am a member of the Liberal Party of Canada, but I have a difficult time maintaining a party devotion because I follow current events and don't make my decisions as a liberal. So basically, officially I pay my dues to the liberal party, but I'll ditch out if I deem it appropriate and opt for something better.

I call myself "Independant." I am liberal on most issues, though. I mostly vote Democratic.

Lefty liberal. Radical feminist, pro- NHS, free education, queer rights, disability rights, women's rights, trans* rights.

Libertarian, as described by Le_Pingouin

Honestly, I just think our political system needs a major overhaul. For instance, it should be possible for someone who is middle class to run and be elected to a federal seat, even the presidential seat. It currently is far from possible.

Socially, left. Don't dictate what a person can and cannot do (so long as they aren't hurting someone else). Economically I'm right smack on that lovely picket fence (erm, though mine isn't white. It's mauve). I tend to vote (or would if I ever got my absentee ballot on time) on social issues instead of economic ones.

I've been voting Greens since forever and have been a sponsor and pro-greens activist with the Wilderness Society for two years now.

Screw the rest of it all, it's Earth and us blue-collar workers/ pensioners that needs saving in my opinion.

I believe in sex and drugs and rock and roll.

I think only ridiculously smart people should be president. I don't want to have a fucking beer with the President. They should have better things to do.

Socially, very liberal. Pro-choice, pro-LGBT rights, pro-universal healthcare, and such.

Fiscally, moderate. I'm willing to admit that sometimes we liberals have great ideas but sometimes haven't the foggiest clue how to pay for it.

Also, could those of you who stated that you support "traditional values" possibly explain what you mean and why? I feel like that gets thrown around a lot and yet can mean so many different things.
