That's moderate, the faction which gets beat up by both sides. When you stand in the middle of traffic, cars from both lanes pose a danger to you. When the speed limits were lower about 16 years ago, it was easier and less dangerous to interact with the flow both ways.

I'm somewhere in the middle.

Pro-Life (conservative)
Anti-Death Penalty (liberal)
I'm for more social programs(universal healthcare, free cancer screening and community college), higher taxes on rich and believe we need to protect the environment from man-made climate change.(liberal)
I'm for religious freedom, ability to choose which school your kid goes to, less government regulation, less individual tax(get rid of inheritance tax, business tax)(conservative)

I'm anti-war which basically means I can't vote for either party on that. Both are war-mongers. It's pathetic.


Well the thread was mostly for me to find out who i am...

I think my title is misleading will edit it.


Whoops, well you can see my interpretation of the two sides and see if you agree or disagree. It's a pretty fluid thing in American politics.

Basically the pattern is liberals state their intentions and conservatives run counter to them. During elections liberal candidates state their intention and then the conservative candidates cling on to their ideas with slightly different wording(on economy, immigration and social services) lest they get shredded by most of the media.

Just recently with Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have the two sides actually been running on separate issues.

Well i am split in two parts:

Ideology - What i think:
I appear on the middle by the two tests i took.

Practical - What i can do:
As long as i am left alone with my Animus i am okay.
I could vote for anything that leaves me alone.

Why would you want to identify with any party? Just be yourself and subscribe to common sense politics like I do. I will vote for either party if I feel they are the right person for the job. I do identify more with Democrats because Republicans have just gone to bats$%t crazy over the last decade or so. I don't like the hypocrisy of either party though and I really can't stand people who blindly vote for their party even if their nominee is a complete nutjob. Also there are plenty of 3rd party candidates running this year but one would never know it. It's funny that so many people whine and bemoan the fact that they don't have any good choices and don't like Hillary or Trump but won't even take the slightest look at the third party candidates. Heck, it's even hard to find them by searching online. Too many people just want to wave their team red or team blue pom pom's even if it's against their own best interests. Don't worry about identifying too much. Look at both parties platform. Study the issues and then after all that take a very close look at each individual running and find the one you can live with most. Find who seems to share your values the most and the person you personally think will care the most and do the best job. Try not to get sucked into that trap of blindly voting for whoever your party tells you that you must vote for. There's nothing intelligent about people being blind sheep and who refuse to look at the individual or even the issues and always vote for whoever their party tells them to. It's really just sad.

Yes and no.

I'm a fan of EU in terms of what it could be, and I'm also a fan of social welfare, so there's that. And as an ideology libertarianism as it is commonly portrayed is too divided to be an state I could claim to represent.

I'd generally lump it all together as a "Would you stop lumping stuff together and look at each problem separately, god damnit".

But that doesn't make a good -ism does it? Wyslstalaepsgd-ism...

Just doesn't have the ring, does it?

HÆ? Hva i alle dager, er dette for noe.

Nordic mythology? WHAT. I thought that was dead?

I am genuinly confused.

Av en eller annen grunn minner han meg om President Snow.

The problem wasn't the title. The problem was that you started the thread in General Discussion not in Advice, Info, Recommendations. Even if someone read your OP, they would not be wrong to assume that broader discussion, including how they identify politically, was appropriate.

If a thread is specifically about you and is not intended to initiate discussion from others about their own opinions, experiences, etc. then don't put it in General Discussion.

Since you received good answers to your questions, I've now closed the thread.
