What issue do you disagree with the other party on the most? If you're in a third party, go ahead and do both the GOP and Dems.

So called "social justice."  It's a code word for tyranny of the minorities.

The belief that the free market solves everything

On second thought:

Blind faith in the system

It's the idea that all you have to do to solve a problem is to cut a check.

More programs. One thing I will say for Clinton, he understood this about welfare and offered some outstanding reforms. Further, he supported a free market proposal, NAFTA. It sounds like your arugument is as much with the Democrats as the Republicans.

I took it the opposite way. Democrats tend to be a bunch of do-gooders who want to ban things like cigarette ads from television.

On sex education, I don't know what he's talking about.

I guess some Democrats want to teach children information about sex, while the Religious Party wants to keep them in ignorance.

Well, I don't know about the Religious Party, but I want to leave it up to parents and just abolish public schools entirely.

How can an economic right-winger say the thing he disagrees with the Democrats on the most is Affirmative Action? Sure, it's outdated, but it's really no big deal at all.

I'm not an economic right-winger, I just lean right. You are an economic right-winger.

It means I am an economic centrist with more beliefs that support capitalist ideals.

Okay, but in practice, what does it mean? Are you for minimum wage, the progressive income tax, and all that?

That's what I don't get about the blame Clinton nonsense, I'm not particularly fond of Clinton. It's just that he was a hell of a lot better than Bush.

1. Yes, but I don't think it should be raised
2. Not really

The environment. There are plenty of great companies that respect the environment, but that does not take away from the fact that only a few could damage it badly.
