There are a lot of things I actually like about the Greens but as a strong advocate of nuclear energy, alter-globalization, reasonably low tax rates on businesses, and a balanced approach to federalism it makes me somewhat uneasy when green parties want to raise certain taxes or tariffs, shun nuclear energy in favor of renewable sources alone, encourage people to buy local instead of from whomever offers the best qualities and/or prices for goods and services, and place a big emphasis on grassroots democracy (something I think can be but is not invariably a good thing). Just like in the States, I like to be generally pro-green but there are a few big snags in policy compatibility that hold me back from enthusiastically signing on.

On the other hand, I love the greens' stances on social matters and approve of them for being more humanistic and less corporatist than many of their social democratic - and some of their democratic socialist - counterparts.

Given some of the DUP's recent rhetoric, it's rather interesting that many American right-wingers are saying that they'd support them.

Good call.

Looking at your Political Matrix score, you must be a pretty lonely Republican (I know NH is different, but that different, seriously?). With scores like that you'd be right at home in New Labour over here and surely further left than many Dems in the South over there?

Well, I wouldn't have been entirely unwelcome in New Labor. But New Labor doesn't exist. Now it's Red Ed. Also, I don't think the Blair-Brown government was very good. And I like "big society" Cameronism.

Also, I find the Republican Party a perfect fit. After all, despite his protestations to the contrary, Mitt Romney is probably around where I am. And even if there are probably Southern Democrats more right-wing than I am, they're all probably still tied to far-left interest groups (SEIU, NEA), and a far-left, irresponsible, incompetent, intolerant, kleptocratic national party.

No, more that I'm just not a fan of either IU or PSOE and obviously against the right. Spain was a hard choice for me, I don't really like any of the parties that much.
