Registered Republican, but pretty fed up and disgusted with both sides these days. Spineless, ass-covering hacks on BOTH sides of the aisle and I'm not a particular fan of any political figure these days.

But, I'm DEFINITELY to the right of center on matters cultural, fiscal, etc. BUT I have a big heart regarding those who, through no fault of their own (read: children, the TRULY oppressed or abused, etc.) have it tough. I'm no fire-breathing, right wing nutbar and I don't "hate" anyone.

Gee, that really sucks...the debate is so skewed and the cards are so stacked against ANYTHING remotely right-wing and conservative, that I just felt compelled to write a qualifying paragraph, letting everyone know I'm not in the KKK or that I don't get marching orders from Limbaugh, Liddy, etc.

Great.

of the american political parties to have made blips on my radar screen to date,
the republicans are right up there with the buchananites on the list of "evil people who in their despicable views should be exterminated with flowerful love power"
the democrats are on the list of "people who in their corrupt and untrue ways should be exterminated with flowerful love power"
and the greens just need a reality check

Really? I don't seem to remember anybody counting ALL the votes.

&lt;rant&gt;
Stupid lying media. This week, the front page of my newspaper announced, "Bush won media recount." I open the newspaper and read the article. They counted the votes in 7 different ways. Turns out that Bush only came out ahead in 3 of those 7 methods, while Gore came out ahead in 4 of them.

A statewide recount is required by Florida law in all races that have results within a 5% margin. This was never done. If the law of Florida had been followed properly, Al Gore would have come out ahead by some 171 votes. &lt;/rant&gt;

Don't believe the media's lies. They're covering up the greatest hijack of democracy that's ever taken place. George Bush did not win that election. He is not our legitimate president.

For the record, mine said Gore. Why the hell they thought Nova Scotians (in general) actually want that on the front page is far beyond the scope of this thread.

The NY Times had the same "Bush" headline. Unbelievable! We have to go to Canada* to find a newspaper that doesn't lie!

Independent. Usually vote to keep more of my damn hard-earned money so I can buy a house soon. Can you imagine how nice it was to earn a living in pre-1913 America...no income tax! Calculate that folks: on average most peeps would earn another 30-40%!

Moving on, most would consider my views libertarian, however I usually vote for the GOP. I'm not excited about Dubya, but I would have feared Bore and his left-wing BS. I'm believe a woman should have the right to kill an unborn baby (don't euphemize). I support the 2nd amendment as all the other amendments.

The only reason I'm not a registered Green Party member is I refuse to align myself with a particular group. If I had to choose, though, I'd go Green. More subsidized social services, campaign finance reform, gun control, and instant runoff elections like in Ireland!!!

And by the way, Ralph Nader is one of maybe five honest, noble, virtuous, sincere politicians we have left. *ducks to avoid bottles and rotten fruit*

You obviously haven't caught on to the change within the Labour party in the UK: Blair has refashioned the party "New Labour" which certainly seems to be pro-big business to me. jhtrih is certainly not contradicting himself when he claims to be pro-Blair and pro-big business.

Personally I think Blair looks a bit like a woodchuck in a windtunnel at times. Then I look at Bush. Can there be no hope? I have grown less and less confident in organised politics in general.

American/ French citizen, dual

Liberal in terms of need for infrastructure.
Anarchist: in terms of civil liberties: absolutley, victimless crimes are the problem of the individual perpetrating them:
(NOTE: you cannot be a pro-life libertarian, that makes no sense, either you believe in individuals choice or you don't (unless you think that a fetus, though it has no language or identity and no real human capacities for living without the mother can be ranked at the same level as the mother)
Lifestyle choices are all acceptable unless they interface with the freedoms of others negatively.
I am also a Liberal that believes in the right to bear arms --I just think that there should be a liscensing procedure: akin to getting hunting liscences, but with in depth background checks.
Drugs should be legalized (I'm with WFBuckley, and many Libs here) but with a hierarchy based on social detriment and addictiveness.
More government funding of research into non-military issues: alternative fuels, alternative means of transportation etc.
I think that noone ever went broke from taxes.
Poverty is real and is not always the fault of the poor (as many of us may find in the near future) and there should be a 'safety net' but with programs for jod training.... and not permanent handouts.
more will come from me later as I'm sure many of you are woefully aware....

The same can be said about a 6 week-old child. Do you believe in infanticide? I know that's a radioactive question but I'm serious. The implication of your parenthetical remark suggests that an infant has no right to life either.
