Regardless, I don't really have faith in politicians to actually support anything unless it's politically expedient for them. Who really cares why politicians choose to support certain issues? The important part is whether or not they support the issue, and if deep down they disagree with what they're promoting, that's not going to matter in the long run because it results in that issue being advanced legislatively regardless.
Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
