holy hell, when did the left fall in love with regressive taxes?  You hate free speech and love war, think violence is perfectly acceptable tool to use on someone who disagrees with you, you keep coming up with new ways to tax poor people....ugggg...and the right loves Russia and hates free markets....wtf is wrong with you people?

The more time passes, the increasingly archaic I start to realize my political views actually are. Assuming they were ever actually popular, that is. Tongue

A game of getting states to vote the opposite way while still looking reasonable turned into a mild democratic gerrymander.



How did you flip MI? The borders look the same, as far as I can tell...

73  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Political Quiz List. Are you a Quiz Whiz? on: April 13, 2017, 12:24:43 pm
1. Liberal-Conservative: Conservative and libertarian, people in this category tend to believe that order and traditional authority is best served by a small, unintrusive government. (100%)         
2. Liberal: These people tend to be libertarian, but staunchly against ideas of social justice and traditional authority which they feel stifle freedom. (100%)         
3. Pro-everything: Supports Liberty, Equality, and Order roughly equally, to a great extent.. (67%)         
4. Radical: Egalitarian and libertarian, people in this category range from moderate liberal egalitarians to libertarian and democratic socialists. (67%)         
5. Conservative: Traditional conservatives, as the ones in this category, believe that libertarian individualism and social egalitarianism serve to do little but erode traditional institutions of order and authority. (34%)         
6. Moderate: Not particularly libertarian, egalitarian, or conservative; these people tend to believe in compromise as a value. (34%)         
7. Communitarian: Conservative and egalitarian, these people put prime value in a paternalistic society which cares for all its members and treats them as equals, but includes an important role for order, tradition, and authority. (0%)         
8. Socialist: Egalitarian, but not particularly libertarian or conservative, people here believe in a strong state to enforce social justice and equality, even at the expense of social order and freedom. (0%)   
74  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: William Jennings Bryan vs Barry Goldwater on: April 12, 2017, 11:20:15 pm
This is basically the same as asking "are you a liberal or a conservative." I voted for Bryan, of course (normal Democrat).

Many populist republicans on here may go with Bryan and many democrats who dislike Bryan Social Conservatism may go with Goldwater
Fair point with regards to Bryan, though in my personal opinion, nobody who would vote for Goldwater has any right to call themselves a liberal.

I would disagree with that statement. Now, if you said "leftist" instead of "liberal", I would agree. Wink
