Liberal, Conservative, Moderate or Extremist?
    #4135503 - 05/05/05 01:07 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

If you want government to intervene domestically, you?re a liberal.

If you want government to intervene overseas, you?re a conservative.

If you want government to intervene everywhere, you?re a moderate.

If you don?t want government to intervene anywhere, you?re an extremist.

Nice, but it ignores the fact that liberals and conservatives both favor government intervention in both domestic and foreign policy. I'd say a better characterization of liberals and conservatives is that liberals want a mommy state while conservatives want a daddy state.

Everything and nothing... Everything and nothing as a result of not taking a side. Just do what's rational and promotes society with the least oppression of the society in question as well as others...

Simple concept, yet so damn hard to follow... apparently.

Which view would that be categorized under? :shrug:
Don't see the point in categorizing a view, as ones views aren't wholly intwined with their political affiliation. However if they are.... well, absolution is a bitch, as is the nature of blind adherence to anything.
