I'm also baffled at how many times "Social Democracy" is left off of these lists. It's one of the most common ideologies in the world, how do people keep omitting it?

It is probably because people in the States often lump social democrats and democratic socialists into a broader category of "socialists," and sometimes include social liberalists too as a way of scoring cheap political points. xD

You're wrong, I'm interested in criticisms of capitalism which are typically categorized as 'Marxis', Tweed, most of which can be viewed in numerous very basic textbooks or wikipedia.  You'll find that most things in life are easily summed up and not as special as you may like to believe - and remember, even the young maybe boring.

your use of 'boring' as synonymous with rigor or care or effort is, at best, an over-application of the subjective.  I can quote the master himself: "There is no royal road to science, and only those who do not dread the fatiguing climb of its steep paths have a chance of gaining its luminous summits".  don't kid yourself into believing your affected laziness leaves nothing untouched on the other side of the hill.

I like coq au vin but don't know how to cook it, young Tweed.  Politics is a matter of preference and taste, not whatever it is you're up to (memorization?).

     Populism is a rhetorical strategy that consists of appealing to the will & the good of the "people". You can approach literally any ideological strain in a populist fashion.

It's a certain style or way of doing politics which consists of (demagogic) appeals to "the people" against some sort of elite. Hence left-wing populism, right-wing populism and so forth.

Though I don't necessarily believe Populism is a totally vacuous term when it comes to political ideology, the question this thread posed allowed people to pick Populism as part of a multiple choice answer, which I think excuses it in this case. Think of picking populism in this thread as a supplementary sort of answer to your other "main" ideological choices.

Moderate progressivist reformist I guess comes closest. Also, I roll my eyes at the hilariously low votes for the 'Republican' and 'Democrat' ideologies that so, so many here adhere to.

Paleoliberal, Socialist, Nationalist.

I feel iffy using 'Socialist', if only because I identify with social democracy very strongly. I do not think that. And by 'Paleoliberal', I mean pre-1970s liberalism in the United States, which is essentially social democracy.

Essentially, I am for guns and butter, for equal rights and individual liberty, for a social market economy, and am an 'Owl' with regard to foreign policy (moderate interventionist). I am culturally conservative in that I reject multiculturalism, but I don't identify with conservatism otherwise. I am not a moderate in that my economic views are to the left of every major Democratic officeholder. I think that Libertarianism and Marxism/Communism are just as bad as Fascism/Nazism, so I would never identify with any of their variant forms. I detest the word 'Progressive'; it's a cop-out for liberals who are afraid of the 'L word' in American politics. Environmentalism tends to mean opposition to nuclear power and GM food, so that's a no-go as well. I'm mixed on calling myself a feminist; I'd be more comfortable calling myself an 'Egalitarian'.

As for the others...no, just, no. Anarchism is idealism turned up to eleven and would never, ever work in real life. Neoconservatism is awful, Paleoconservatism is even worse. Strict Constitutionalism is no better than religious fundamentalism. I don't even know what 'reformist' means, so I can't vote for that one. Is Agrarian Socialism the stuff of Pol Pot/Mao? Monarchism is beyond stupid. Any ideology with 'Eco' in it automatically gets a 'no'. Classical Liberalism is outdated, Neoliberalism is bad too. I would never call myself a 'Market Liberal' or a Republican. I'm a registered member of the Democratic Party.

Zionism I don't have a problem with. Third Wayism...no. Jingoism...also no.

Agrarian socialism can refer to anything from Pol Pot to kibbutzim to certain parts of eastern Iowa.

For the record, I wasn't referring to "republican" and "democrat" as political parties, rather as the idea of republicanism and democratism.
