    The kind that isn't.

    I am not liberal or con or libertarian or communist or socialist or call myself any other political thing.

    I am me - I do not confine myself to a political club.

    Why most do is beyond me...must be that 'fitting in' or 'desire to belong' thing.

    Immigration ?? We need work on tolerance .. Its time for a 2020 version of the movie "Intolerance" . The "Roaring 20s version was a silent .. and deep ..
    We ? I mean the entire world .


    I don't profess my political views in real life because I'd probably face swift sentencing. Instead I just blend in and learn the sycophantic social norms of the masses and replicate those to get what I want for myself and those I care about. I actually have never found my political views to be a problem with women. Women are actually fairly ethnocentric, even the "Leftist" ones. You just can't be publicly conservative anymore and certainly never anything to the right of conservatism. Nobody in real life could ever hear my views because they're just not applicable to the average plebeian. After a few seconds they wouldn't even recognize 90% of the words and or historical euphemisms used.
    I doubt that Sweden or the USA are destroying .. successfully .. IMO, its the bombs ..

    It was mostly in the early 1990's, about the time that Clinton was first elected. It didn't happen overnight - it took years. But I think I really began questioning conservatism earlier than that, when I was reading books and articles by the conservative pundits like Rush Limbaugh, and watching how the conservatives were laughing - laughing! - about Lt. Colonel Oliver North getting away with what he did in the Iran-Contra scandal. I think I began to realize then that if the Dems had done something like Iran-Contra, the conservatives wouldn't have stopped until the president was impeached and those involved were in jail. But because it was under Reagan, what they did was suddenly no problem at all!

    It was hypocrisy on a grand scale...and I despise hypocrisy. I think that, along with the political influence of the "Christian" Religious Right, began to wake me up about political conservatism in America.

    The libertarian sort as I actually believe in small, limited, and responsible government. The modern GOP is jot a small government party.
