    Give me an issue and I'll give you my position. I'm none of the above on everything. It depends on the issue. I don't feel the need to belong to a political persuasion.

    Socially, I am pretty much a centrist
    Financially, I am a moderate liberal

    The best way to answer this is to say "neither". A liberal believes in promoting liberty, and I do not. A conservative believes in preserving traditional authority, and I do not. I am a progressive and a radical. I believe that human society can be improved, and that the human being himself can be improved, and I believe in reforming society from the ground-up and the top-down to achieve that goal. Liberties which interfere with progress must be suppressed, and traditional authorities that oppose progress must be swept away.

    Arrogance. My own, for thinking I can do better, and that of others, for their refusal to acknowledge that they could. A government with unlimited power attracts the corrupt. Bureaucracies are frequently less efficient than entrepreneurs.

    I hate their sense of entitlement. They think they deserve everything, whether it's their liberties or government cheese. They think that they deserve to rule, that the universe agrees with them and that nobody opposes them for noble reasons. They aren't willing to bleed for their cause. They don't think their policies have unintended consequences.

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    I'm a conservative independent.

    I am morally against abortion, believe in traditional values, tough punishments, although I have nothing against gay people. I am also in favour of small government, who takes care of the poor, create sound regulation, and try to create a good society for people to live in. The governmemt should not be intrusive. For instance it is not up to the government to decide how many hours I want to work or if I'm going to join a union or not.

    I consider myself an independent because I agree with the Democrats on some issues and, and some I want a mixture of both. Therefore, i supported Obama in 2009, but now I will support a Republican or no one.

    I'm slightly to the left of center. I tend to be more liberal on social issues, and more conservative on foreign policy and fiscal policy. I'm a registered democrat, but more due to practicality than because I really embrace the democratic party.

    Because in my opinion my way of looking at the world makes the most sense.

    Nothing. As I mentioned already, my views make the most sense to me, but I realize that there is nothing inherently better or worse about them than other ways of looking at the world.

    Quote Originally Posted by Wake View Post

    Yeah. I have no overriding political philosophy that guides my views. I tend to look at issues individually, and this can occasionally lead to conflicts between some of my viewpoints.

    I think the libertarian idea that bigger government is always a bad thing is silly.

    I despise the conservative idea that gays do not deserve the right to marry and that we must adhere slavishly to a document written over 200 years ago to run our modern country.

    I can't stand the liberal idea that illegal immigrants should be welcomed with open arms.

    I'm a vaguely libertarian liberal.

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    I am generally a progressive liberal, but with two caveats. First, I don't think the Democratic party is necessarily liberal, so I am not a Democrat. Second, I deviate from the liberal box on some things because no box is fully ethically consistent. I strive to be consistent.

    I think my stance is generally compatible with what brings improvement to society as shown by history. However, I regard other stances as necessary. Unchecked progress is just as dangerous as no progress, or reversing progress. I try to moderate my degree of expressed progressivism to be in tune with the reasonable speed of social change. But being further checked by moderates and conservatives is a good thing. I do have views I believe in strongly, but don't fight for right now because I don't think they are feasible from our current position without pushing for excessive change which may destabilize society.

    Any ethical inconsistency in my poltical philosophy is a flaw. I do find them occassionally. In such a case, either my general stance must change or my exceptional belief must change. I recently found such a case in myself as pertains to voluntary euthenasia. I chose to change my stance.

    Compartmentalized thinking in all forms - basically, inconsistent ethics. There are several political stances that are held almost universally by people with inconsistent ethics. The stances themselves are a result of compartmentalized thinking.
