    Re: Ideological Census

    I consider myself to be an independent with a leaning towards conservatism on many political areas (like national security and abortion). Although there are some issues you could call me liberal on (like *some* regulation to business and fair wages, maybe even a liberal form of health care if it is efficient). I tend to make up my mind based on each issue, not put myself in one group that encompasses many issues.

    So in other words you are wishy washy.

    The only time I was wrong was when I confessed to being wrong when I was really right.

    Seriously I've been a debater for years. There is only one person who always whips my arse. My wife.

    Yes dear, I am coming.

    Re: Ideological Census

    I hate to go Gumpism but here I go again

    It was one day before JFK was killed. I was the captain of a shrimp trawler making my way from Aransas Pass, Texas to Fort Meyers Beach, Florida. At the time we were trawling off the Texas coast off High Island near Galveston.

    I had a rig man that was really a weird dude. He was a white guy, about 21 from Texas. All during the trip he kept telling me that when we returned to Texas after the Flordia fishing season that he was going to do a scam on a country church that he knew about in a rural town in texas.

    He never told me about any of the details and I really did not want to know the details.

    That night a perfect storm occured right where we were fishing. The wind was blowing one hundred plus as we rode the monstorous waves in the 72 feet long wooden trawler. It started leaking like a sieve due to the pounding the boat was taking.

    Then murphy's law became reality. The clutch went out and we got a fishing net in the propeller. We began to drift towards the shore. I saw other shriimp trawlers, shining their spotlights, cruying for help on the coast guard emergency channel 2182. I could recieve but the radio could not transmit.

    I had the rigman follow me into the engine room. The water was up to our knees from the flooded bilge. The bilge pump on the main engine had failed and I was trying to get the gasoline emergency bilge pump started. It had become soaked by the torrential rain blowing in from the engine room hatch.

    My rigman got down on his knees in the oily water and cried, "Jesus, sweet Jesus, I am sorry, please don't let me die". I told him to wait until we got the pump started before he continued any more praying.

    I got the pump started. It cleared up the next morning and the coast guard towed us into Galveston.

    That night we went honky tonking and the rigman started talking about the church caper again. I walked away and that's the last I ever heard of him.

    The moral of this story is that ideologies and attitudes are often changed more than dirty underwear, I guess.

    I voted:
    Conservative, Moderate, Undecided.

    I have opinions, but I try to keep an open mind about the topics I have opinions on because I will likely never have all the information, or understand it all if I do.
    Education.

    Re: Ideological Census

    All of this is subject to change as my mind is fairly flexible, so I will try my best to paint a political picture of myself.

    In Canada I'm considered right of centre, especially where I live right now.

    In the U.S. I'd probably be considered left of centre because I bring my background in Canadian politics (which are, in general, more liberal) to the American arena.

    I see myself as a moderate because even though I may have my initial views on things, after reading through most debates I find myself torn between two sides and want to compromise. Only with a few issues am I staunchly one side or the other.

    I am susceptible to having my mind changed if people put forth a sound rationale. If two, perfectly rational and courteous people were to be put in a room with me and have a heated debated in front of me, I'd probably come out of it favoring some elements of both sides. Poorly thought out arguments or insulting tactics tend to drive me in the opposite direction even if that's not where I started; it's disgusting behavior in politics that tends to repel me to the other side, even if it's not where I would normally be. I detest extremism and favor bridging of views, since all leans have some inherent value.

    Socially I am mostly live and let live... I see no need to restrict people's expression or desires based on my own social views.

    Fiscally I am right of center.

    In foreign policy... it depends on the situation, but mostly I am centrist. I think most things can be worked out through diplomacy if both sides are willing, and war should always be a last resort; but even then, wars should be productive and with purpose, not pro-longed and costly. Some people call me a liberal for no longer supporting the war in Afghanistan or Iraq, but it's actually for fiscal reasons that I no longer support them.
