    Very Conservative Republican

    One thing I disagree with my party on is the nation building of Iraq. No I don't agree with Ron Paul. I am in favor of intervention if needed, but not international welfare. Another thing is I don't mind if gays have civil union, but civil unions only.

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    I had to vote other because I am a liberal non-democrat. I want nothing to do with that crappy party. Anyways I lean what most people would consider liberal on alot of issues, but I do hold some conservative beliefs, such as gun-control, immigration, and a few others that are slipping my mind at the moment. And my views on social issues are probably more accurately described as libertarian, but I want nothing to do with libertarians economic policy.

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    Are you a liberal or conservative, etc?
    Fairly decent libertarian

    Why?
    I like the idealism of libertarianism and the insistence upon the rights and liberties of the individual. While it understands the necessity of government on some front, it also well understands the limitations of government and potential threat the government can be to freedom.

    What makes your stance better than others?
    It's a different view of things. I think that people have become very comfortable in their tomorrow and because of that have stopped applying the necessary pressure on government which must continually exist to uphold the tenets of freedom and liberty. Benjamin Franklin was asked after the Constitution was created as to what form of government we had. He replied "A Republic, if you can keep it". Libertarianism is the political philosophy which will allow us to keep the Republic. The other main parties only talk of it, but act in the opposite manner.

    What makes your stance better than others?
    It can, and is by some, be taken to some rather extreme ends. Some people can confuse it for a philosophy of anarchy rather than minarchy.

    Which one specific aspect of the other political identities do you abhor?
    While maybe not a symptom of the individuals endorsing the philosophies, the main parties has turned politics into a circus. It is purposefully being drained of intelligence, the rules are being set up to keep out competition, and everything is so partisan that people stop thinking and react only by party mandate.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    My political lean is Church-going and Bible-reading Conservative Christian who support the Tea Party and sometimes conservative Republicans!

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    I'm starting to think Alfons is one of these joke members that we get every so often. I am what I would consider a moderate democrat. I have been in a Republican family, my grandfather was a huge Republican but my thoughts are is the moderate or slightly conservative Democrats are like the Republicans of a few years ago, the Republican that exist today is a new kind of beast that never existed before and has a view of the world or how it used to be that never existed before. They use petty name calling and a lot of scare tactics to make people believe what they believe, and the actual politicians make it no secret that they care more for their own than they do the American people. I have not been a democrat for long, actually experiencing life is what has changed my views. I still despise bleeding heart liberals, but not nearly as much as I despise the conservatives as a movement because they either know what they will do is going to hurt people or they follow those that know it will hurt people and are to stupid to see otherwise.

    Neither. I'm a libertarian socialist, with hints of anarchist.

    Why?
    I believe people are basically good, but that capitalist society demands that economic priorities pit worker against worker and boss against worker. It demands increasing inequality and ensures that resources are not distributed equitably between nations, classes, sexes, ages etc. It guarantees conflict and draws out the worst possible aspects of human behaviour. I want to see an end to this economic system, ideally by peaceful democratic means, who knows if that would be possible?
    What makes your stance better than others?
    Because it's mine. If I didn't think it was any good, I'd have no business maintaining it as my stance, would I?
    Do you percieve any flaws in your stance?
    Hundreds. The nature and shape of the kind of society I would like to see is vague to say the least, especially in terms of economic organisation. Also, the very real possibility that in order to bring about the downfall of the current system, violence might be either necessary or inevitable. I want to see a pacifist society emerge, how then could I support the violent overthrow of the current system?
    Which one specific aspect of the other political identities do you abhor?
    In liberals, opportunism. They lament the evils of capitalist society while being unprepared to do anything about the underlying causes. They just tinker around with the symptoms.

    In conservatives, hypocrisy. They lament the rise of 'political correctness gone mad', and then try to impose their own orthodoxy at every turn. Their 'political correctness' stipulates that only they are allowed to define marriage, only they know what patriotism really means.

    In right-libertarians, short-sightedness. They lament the lack of freedom from 'big government' but are happy to have us all submit to the tyranny of big corporations, indeed they seem to exist to liberate not the individual, but the private sector. Shills for the rich, hoping to be rich one day themselves.
