Fed up and not participating anymore.
It's bad to not vote in a democracy, but why vote when the choice is to poke out my left or my right eye? It's better to just do nothing at all.

During my high school years I was very conservative. I was a member of several religious affiliated political groups that hated Obama and everything Iiberal. I was gay but I thought gay marriage was an abomination. I used to send emails to companies and corporations that were against family values and stuff like that.
These were the type of emails I received



The type of protests one group did. They still protest but not as much



Then I realized that some of the people I knew were no different than the Islamic radicals that they hated.

I slowly started to distance myself from those groups and became more liberal . I'm still against abortion but besides that I don't care what people do with lives unless it harms someone else. I also realized that USA was founded as a secular state and I think it should remain that way.

Closest is "Independent," though I'm not fond of politics, period. More often than not, I detest polarization, which just so happens to be a common them in politics.

TELL EEEEEEEM

this is a conversation between me and my best friend:



This country is supposed to be a place of freedom, a place where people of all races can get together and be at peace. It is not like that.
And definitely a place where I can get a job after spending thousands of dollars in college and being in debt for a good portion of my life.

Anyway, I consider myself an independent, because honestly I think political parties are bullshit. Washington literally warned us, and now we can't see beyond donkey and elephant. You'd immediately be judged based on your party. Racist and close minded if Republican, or dumb and full of shit if Democrat. There's no listening to the other party and making a logical judgement based on that instead.

Sometimes I actually feel ashamed to be a citizen of the U.S. Flame me all you want, this country has problems that need to be addressed, and calling it perfect and the best in the world is utterly idiotic.

That's the miracle of ideologies. Two or more groups of people with incompatible beliefs that set out to demonize those who oppose them. You cannot point of the merits or demerits of their beliefs without causing you to come under attack by one, both, or all, groups of ideology in play. It's not just a problem in the United States.

Which is why I'm so fed up with the world. I expected better from this place. When I was taken out of my home and brought here, I was told this is a place where anyone can get together. But no, people are just hateful and scared of each other. I don't really know what to do.

Here's a Pokemon quote for everyone to read while I go ram my head up against the wall.

"It’s not by rejecting different ideas, but by accepting different ideas that the world creates a chemical reaction. This is truly the formula for changing the world.” - N

Independent. The views are kind of split down the middle. Liberal on social programs, death penalty and environment. Conservative on abortion, state rights and size of government. Socialist when it comes to health care and I guess purely independent when it comes to war since liberals are no longer the anti-war.

I consider a parliament structure of government to be slow, by so much that it might seem ineffective, and at times neglectful of minorities, but I consider it secure against ill decisions that can economically ruin the country, and secure against military junta, which means that far less of the capital needs to be funneled into law enforcement and military, and more can be spent elsewhere, such as research, and recuperation of citizens health (which in turn aids the economy).

I consider a social democracy to be capitalistic, but with a cap. You have the chance to become rich (or rich-er), but not at the expense of other people's health. It's a free market, but with high tax rates. High tax rates are essential in order to avoid monopolization of the market, and extreme differences in wealth that create social classes. Thing is, tax rates are not something to be thought of as static. Tax rates can be lowered and increased in minor increments over the course of years, to suit tax returns and funding, as well as tax payers.

That said, I vote labor party (center-left), and at times progress party (far right), depending on the general need or stability of society (which includes myself). I support small businesses (including young entrepreneurs), I support unions (labor's protection), and I support, in part, farmers (I do not support farmers demand to eradicate all wild animals to suit their needs, but I do support their yields. and keep). I do not support large corporations (chains or pyramids), but I do not make it my business to boycott them either. It's not a matter of hypocrisy, but of practicality. When I say support, I mean, that regulations and availability should be in favor of small businesses rather than large corporations, and that instead of making it my lone wolf project, I vote for those who can actually do something about it.

As of right now, I want the government to make more cuts for elderly homes. Mostly to renovate. I don't know of anyone at elderly homes, or of anyone who will be in need of it soon, but I'm quite informed as to the situation. When people's health deteriorate as a result of the poor treatment of their parents or grandparents, it's not just a moral issue, it's an economical issue as well.
