    Re: What am I? What are you?

    I want to thank everyone who has participated so far. It's very interesting to read everyone's stances on certain issues.. and although I don't agree with a lot of them, I respect the people that have shared theirs with the rest of us. Thanks for the civility exhibited here..!

    I do think that this goes to show that as different as some of us are politically, we DO have some things in common and I think it's important to keep that in mind.

    Re: What am I? What are you?

    Looks like I'm your first rootabega.

    I'm a Fascist. Depending on who you ask, Fascism is either right-wing or left-wing. Depending on who you ask, so am I. I consider "left versus right" to be an outdated and obsolescent paradigm, and it has been since the early parts of last century.

    Here is what I believe:

    • I believe the State and the People together form one organic whole, a Nation united by common values and purpose.
    • I believe that the State has the authority and the obligation to do whatever is necessary for the Nation.
    • I believe that benevolent rulers, be they elected officials or autocrats, have the Mandate of Heaven and the People are morally obligated to support and obey them.
    • I believe that bad rulers, incompetent rulers, and selfish rulers lose the Mandate of Heaven, and that the People are morally obligated to overthrow and destroy them.
    • I believe that every able-bodied adult has a moral obligation to defend the Nation, and that as the militia, they should be well-armed and well-trained.
    • I believe that our children are the future of our Nation, and that the State should encourage both eugenic procreation and comprehensive education.
    • I believe that the Nation should stay vital by exerting the State's power over other nations.
    • I believe that a nation's power and influence, and thus its health, is either increasing or declining. I believe that my nation is declining, and fear that it's continued decline may be inevitable.

    Re: What am I? What are you?

    I believe gays should have the same civil rights as straights
    abortion is a medical issue involving a woman, the man who impregnated her and her doctor
    that gun control is not federally permissible and that any state government should be precluded from banning citizens from possessing weapons similar to weapons that government issues to its civilian employees
    I believe in a consumption tax and in the alternative, a flat tax. A progressive income tax was designed to give congress more power than ever intended and is doomed to create an unsustainable system by allowing the many's votes to be bought by politicians promising them the wealth of the few
    I have no problem with trade unions but I believe public sector unions should be banned
    I oppose affirmative action as currently practiced as violating both the constitution and TITLE VII
    even the descendents of slave owners owe nothing to the great great grandchildren of slaves
    Religion is a private matter
    I believe that the USA should not be the world's police force but pure isolationism will lead to more WTCs

    I am, you are, we are Australian!



    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: What am I? What are you?

    My main political belief is:

    The only culture the United States government can promote is one of republicanism. Its metaphysics is natural law, its ethics is humanism, and its policies are a synthesis of pragmatism and principle. If individuals feel non-republican values would benefit the community in some way, it is their right to promote them with their own resources. Values irreconcilable with republicanism are regulated, if not outright forbidden.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
