Political leanings inquiry
    #24991681 - 02/13/18 05:38 PM (1 month, 4 days ago)

Do you consider yourself more left or right leaning? Or somewhere in the middle?
Outside of drug use since I think we're all pretty liberal there.
But economically and socially.

I should note that I am in America and our "wings" of politics are generally more conservative than a lot of the western world

Themes to consider before voting:
Identity politics- LGBT rights
Gender equality- how close are we?
Economic values- the trickle down system
Racial topics- racial profiling
Universal health care
And more, obviously

Besides just answering the poll, I'd love to hear comments on these topics. I should mention for America I'm left leaning, but compared to Europe I'm middle or mildly left middle
Political leaning
You may choose only one
Middle Left
Middle Right

Votes accepted from (02/13/18 05:31 PM) to (No end specified)

I'm left leaning compared to average america but compared to asante I'm way over to the right. I guess most people are :wink:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

I put middle left probably closer to the middle.

Things are so polarized these days I hear right wingers and think," I'm way to the left of them".
I hear a lot of left wingers and think,"I'm way to the right of you".

I think there's a lot most of us could agree on if we'd drop our dogmatic idealistic bullshit.

Ben Shapiro says it best. He says he doesnt hate the left or liberals he hates the FAR left and the far right. That’s where the true blame lies. A small fringe that allows transfers of all blame on your average democrat/liberal that in reality isn’t close to far left.
