A former Libertarian who has since became more Conservative. Perhaps your a little more practical than me--I vote on principles even if it ends up hurting me more than helping, while you are able to see what benefeits you the most. I have to say though, supporting Mitt Romney is somewhat ironic Tongue

Your certainly one of our more Libertarian posters none the less Smiley.

Decidedly libertarian although with a strong paleoconservative streak. Not a traditionalist by any standard but conservative in the sense that innovation is somewhat of a threat to the present worldview of his.

Essentially, it's vapid nostalgia for an imagined past combined with an intractable feeling of moral superiority (the answer to the question of what said superiority is derived from is unclear).

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

A solid centre-right, pragmatic, Conservative. While being more socially conservative than fiscally so, he focuses on the latter rather than the former. His strong support for Jon Huntsman in the GOP primary calling him the only 'sane and principled' candidate goes quite a way to showing his moderate-esque tendencies.

Based on his political score, he seems to be a Thatcherite.

Generally reasonable, history-minded (which I can forgive a lot for, although definitely not all, see for instance Niall Ferguson), but fairly strident and not really yet fully developed libertarian. Definitely on the right-libertarian end of the spectrum, and like many Americans who align their politics this way his opinions on some social issues I personally think leave a bit to be desired. Pretty standard libertarian orthodoxy on the economic axis, perhaps more paleoconservative and less neoliberal, as it were. He's young, so he's still developing his worldview and he used to hold some fairly unconscionable positions, which he's smart and honest enough to own up to. Politically active at a young age, which is always a plus (says the person who was the youngest elected official in Massachusetts for a while and so is TOTALLY OBJECTIVE.jpg Tongue).

A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights.

His idea of freedom is - it is a bad thing and should be stopped at all costs.

Interesting fellow. I was going to make the joke of quoting his own description of himself as displayed in his signature, but I'm assuming that's already been done. Tongue

Nathan occupies a fairly unique position on the Atlas' ideological map - his fundamentally traditional - not conservative, necessarily, I think there's a difference - outlook forming an interesting contrast with more traditionally liberal posters who might reject the very notion of "family" as being good for society. I get the impression that, above all else, Nathan values family and community as being paramount in a decent society, and his politics seem to reflect that - a Republican candidate for office might describe themselves as supporting "family values", but from what I can tell Nathan might see such a claim as ridiculous considering said Republican may well want to destroy the very social safety net so many families - and communities! - rely upon.

I've said before that if he were an elected politician - well, uh, he is, but y'know what I mean - he'd be Daniel Patrick Moynihan, as one of the few academics to hold a Senate seat. Nathan is Daniel Patrick Moynihan if Senator Moynihan studied Japanese poetry and had a large number of lesbian friends.

While it's unfortunate that he thinks someone being involved in politics at a young age is a positive, I suppose such attitudes can't be helped on a political forum. Wink

Regardless of that upsetting belief, Nathan remains by far one of my favourite posters to read bar none, and one of the (few, I'll admit) whose posts I never scroll past when reading a thread, although if it's on a religious topic I'll inevitably have to look up about eight-hundred words in the process. To use the appropriate Atlas lingo, Nathan is an "FF".

While it seems I have talked with oakvale much thanks to the forum's chat, I know little of his beliefs. He once humorously commented that our PM scores were mirror opposites of each other, though one would have to switch around the social and economic scores. So what you end up with, I guess, is a liberal who is moderate economically and quite liberal socially. I know I'm not doing him justice here, but this is what I've come up with. Godspeed.

Social and economic conservative with protectionist and commutarian leanings. Definitively more traditionalist than fanatical.

I honestly have no idea what Kalwejt believes and what he is repulsed by outside of the fact that he is a democratic socialist in the European mold with few liberal roots. As far as I can tell, he dislikes Obama and is an opponent of the liberalized brand of social democracy that has been the norm over the past few decades.

Solidly left, which is rare for the state he is from. I cannot say that I know much about him, but I believe he is supporting the Stein/Homulka ticket this year.

Mint is fundamentally anti-democratic, and his surety in the failing of democracy strongly influence the rest of his politics.  While I have seem in vacillate between a number of mutually exclusive positions, the best I can describe him as is authoritarian, somewhat reminiscent of early Italian-style fascism.

Yelnoc... how to describe Yelnoc.

He's very much a political centrist on average. He's apathetic on most social issues, generally placing the "don't be a dick test" on most things. He's an economic moderate, certainly. He shows support for the role of Government and making sure the Government's economic policies are "fair"

His support for more 'libertarian' candidates - but I don't actually get why. Perhaps a lack of interest in either "side" forces him to what he sees as an alternative to that.

Polnut is your average American Democrat. When I think of politicians he might like, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden all come to mind. He is center-left to the core. I could see him voting for a very moderate Republican, however.

Sanchez is young, so his earlier links to white supremacy can arguably be excused, and he's slowly becoming a more standard libertarian - albeit retaining some traces of the paranoia and conspiracy theories that inevitably accompany white supremacist ideology. He distrusts "big government", although these days it's more of a traditional conservative stance than because he thinks the UN are going to his guns. Tongue The best way I can describe Sanchez is "evolving".

Oakvale is a good friend.

Oakvale's a diehard Sinn Fein Irish Nationalist, constantly talking about the need to retake Ulster and of the value of Irish-language education in preserving Irish nationality.  Oakvale's political activities tend to lean to burning the Union Jack on March 17th and picking random letters of the alphabet and forming new chapters of the IRA under them.  (QIRA, ZIRA, XIRA...)

I truly have no idea... my interactions with Mikado have  not been about politics and the few times he has discussed a political issue- he showed himself a mature and thoughtful moderate. He has the perfect political beliefs to be an arbiter on a political board!

Remarkably standard American conservative even though somewhat... umm.. flamboyant in a personality sense, which clearly comes through his posts.

When he's not trolling us with his weird fetish for the fattest and ugliest women possible, he is a fairly standard-issue conservative although he understandably is a defense hawk and a vocal defender of veterans and veterans issues. He also doesn't seem too doctrinaire, as his more open-minded positions on stuff like gay rights shows.
