Am I a right winger?
« on: April 17, 2009, 10:44:44 pm »
I support gay marriage

I support abortion

I believe large corporations should be broken up and anti trust laws should be put back on the books

I'm fine with a central bank, but it must regulated with full transparency.

My reasons for interventionist foreign policy are to stop human rights abuses and liberate oppressed minorities.

I think local farms should be subsidized and we should move away from large scale farming.

I support McCain-Feingold, and think it didn't go far enough.

My dad belongs to a union, works for DPW, and we both agreed earlier today that we should have a meals tax in Massachusetts to add much needed revenue to the city.

I think private contracting should be abolished, and the army core of engineers should be expanded to handle all construction and logistic support for the US armed forces.

I believe the federal government should be required to keep a balanced budget with no deficits or debts.

I believe church and state should be separate.

I'm against the war on drugs.

I would legalize tax and regulate all narcotics, gambling, and prostitution.

I have an aversion to rural areas and certain religious groups...

I own sandals.

My favorite republican isn't Ronald Reagan, its Theodore Roosevelt.

You may be even more to the Left than I am, except in economic issues.

I think you've got a lot of conservative values, and I agree with most of them, but you're very liberal on social issues.

You're the one who has "it" - Tell them yourself. If you can convince them.

I can convince them to foam at the mouth, but that's the limit of my power over moonbats.

There is no left and right; those are labels for intellectual-proletarians. :o

Not all proletarians are communists, just the ones who sent death threats to AIG.

I doubt there's many people out there that share exactly the same beliefs that are attributed to the prototypical Conservative and Liberal.

Personally, I'm socially liberal and economically conservative, with emphasis on personal freedoms.

Then you are somewhere in my neighborhood. Although I have some progressive/socialists tendencies. Like a deep distrust of monopolies for instance.

"Proletarian" =/= "communist"; but simply low-class, over-simplified, lowbrow.

You mean like the base of the liberal/ conservative movement?

 A social liberal and fiscal moderate, perhaps? I'm never good at judging a person's political philosophy, I just go by the issue at hand.

I tend to identify that way, but it is difficult to pin a label to someone like me with independent policy stances. Most people just parrot their parties official stance. Which is about the only way I can explain the number of people who call me a reactionary neo con wingnut.
