    I'm a LIBERAL. Why? That's easy. We LIBERALS are intellectually superior to those of other political suasions. There are no flaws in my political stance. None whatsoever.

    Do you percieve any flaws in your stance?

    My stance is not necessarily better than others. I just happen to think I am somewhat escaping many of the idealistic platitudes of many I know, while still being susceptible to faults of my own positions which of course do not offer the best course at all times (perhaps subscribing to idealistic platitudes that are not necessarily common to others, but are still just as flawed). Sometimes more decisive liberal or conservative action is needed, and I do not doubt that my own stances may not be able to move from one to the next when it is supposedly needed. This especially comes true when all is said and done and retrospective analysis begins or is finished.

    Re: What is your political Stance?

    Are you a liberal or conservative, etc? I am much more sympathetic to conservatives in general then liberals, but i don't technically consider myself one. I am closest to being libertarian, but not strictly.

    Why? Liberty, freedom, i believe people ought to be able to do whatever the hell they want as long as it doesn't deny others liberty, and i think nature, environment, and animals have similar liberties as we do and should'nt be violated.
    I also think we should ALWAYS look for a free market/choice solution to problems, i don't buy the claim that bigger government is the only way, freedom and liberty is always worth the effort.


    What makes your stance better than others? Taking human nature into account, i believe it is the most realistic and fair for everyone... because life is not fair, we are not born equal but born will equal rights, as long as people have the right to choice, they have a right to balance the unfairness of life with thier own choices or to stay there and wither.

    Do you percieve any flaws in your stance? Heartless? Darwinian?... i think of government as a morally neutral institution, and its for individuals to decide to help each other out or not. I just weigh liberty for all people and animals as the highest priority, to me, that is the most valued aspect of any creatures life... so to me it is not heartless.

    Which one specific aspect of the other political identities do you abhor? Having government regulate anything other then protection of liberty for people and the environment and a strong national military. Fiscal/governmental liberals i despise the most.

    liberals have to believe that in order to justify controlling the lives of others

    My political stance begins with the left foot advanced about 18 inches, and the body bladed at a 45 degree angle. My knees are slightly bent and my weight is slightly forward on the balls of both feet, but not so much as to raise the heels off the floor.
    It is superior to other stances due to balance, ease of movement in all directions, and a good blend of offensive and defensive capabilities.
    It's chief flaw is a weakness to the outside line.

    Oh, waitaminute... POLITICAL stance....


    I am a right-center conservative who leans libertarian on several issues.
    I see the purpose of government as that of preserving the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness by its citizens, by providing security against outside threats and such order internally as is necessary to achieve those goals while allowing as much of a free market as feasible.
    My chief flaw is that I sometimes struggle to find my place somewhere between pure conservative and practical-libertarian.

    I particularly despise communism, most aspects of socialism, most flavors of State-ism and authoritarianism.... but I reserve my greatest vitriol for those who want to make it impossible for me to defend myself against unjust aggression.

    I am a progressive.

    Why?

    Because I agree greatly with the ideals and values of the progressive community

    What makes your stance better than others?

    My stance isn't better than others. My stance is my stance.

    Do you percieve any flaws in your stance?

    Not really, for the most part my stance has sound logical arguments with a moral underpinning to them.

    Which one specific aspect of the other political identities do you abhor?

    I am not a big fan of communism because for the most part communism (as it was enacted) was not about helping the working class, but rather about a small minority wanting power for themselves. I personally think that Marx did not factor in human nature to the equation, I think that if he had, communism would be able to work.

    So liberalism is arrogance and closemindedness.

    Anyway, on a serious note, I chose other. I am a libertarian Republican.

    Why?
    I believe in free markets and limited government, as well as respect for individual liberty, whether it be economic, social, or foreign.
    What makes your stance better than others?
    It doesn't try to use the government to force people to adopt its values.

    Do you percieve any flaws in your stance?
    Silly question...I am open to new ideas that may challenge my position and reveal flaws, but I would be a lunatic to support a position and at the same time say it is full of flaws.

    Which one specific aspect of the other political identities do you abhor?
    Liberals/Keynesians: The idea that government is productive, and that spending is production.
    Socialists/Communists: The labor theory of value.
    Conservatives: Federal laws mandating social values.
    Mainstream economics: That capitalism causes the boom-bust cycle, cost theory of value.

    Ewww. I actually agree with you on most of this. My only caveats is that I have no objection to Federal laws mandating social values, but the Conservatives' social values are borked, and that it isn't capitalism that causes boom-bust cycles but the process of market speculation.
