The need to reduce complex things to simple things is human nature. It forces the mind to resolve a judgement, which then cripples your ability to receive new data and process it objectively.

This tendency, more than any other, is exploited for the purpose of mind control.

I think you'd be classed as Libertarian!

What are the main arguments/beliefs of a libertarian?

Belonging to a team Sucks! The first time you stand up and say we need to compromise, they disown you!

I prefer to be a loner, critical thinker, and to hell with those who worship political parties and their ideologies.

That's just me though!

Are you an Independent if you look at each issue independently?

Hanging out with liberals makes me more conservative while hanging out with conservatives makes me more liberal.
Both are mental disorders.

Try to be open minded and stop believe in old dogmats.

My advice is not to buy into the whole left vs. right ideology. Just be yourself without the labels, putting a label on yourself usually ends up in you showing disdain for people with different labels than your own. Just believe what you believe and don't worry about what you should call them.

very interesting


This this have anything to do with political leanings though? Are you saying that America is forcing us down to 2 choices and its mind controlling?

I get that.

Other countries have 5-10 political parties, whats wrong with us?

However, surely all Americans can identify with either Lib or Rep, right? based on our morals, beliefs.

Totally fed up.

I have been voting since 1984, long enough to realize it is ALL BS.

Short answer: I don't know what that makes you.

Long answer:

Why must something or someone be categorized? Why can't you just believe what you believe and not worry about categories?

Unless you're truly personally confused, e.g: being ok with abortion but also think it's wrong. That just might make you a step above most people, holding two contradictory beliefs as valid (see: Schrodinger's cat is both alive and dead and the singularity of opposites).

Either way, someone *will* put on label on you, lol.

I have very passionate beliefs and they all fall under 1 of the 2 major parties, that is why I identify with 1 party over the other.

I would rather have a 3rd or 4th or 5th party, that would be great, however we don't.

Based on your beliefs, you should be able to see where you lay on the political spectrum to be able to make a better choice when voting.

ITs important to know, anyone who "doesn't vote" or "doesn't identify" with a party is wasting a vote and it makes me mad.

Fluffy.

Just don't ask anyone here, they'll label me as a right-wing-neo-con-racist-misogynistic-evil-warlord-slaps-kittens-with-a-spatula-and-laughs party member.

Lol... I was just reading "if you want to know affiliation, create a thread," and here we are...

(My opinion: could've been a better thread, but I'll try to contribute)

I would call myself "Independant" but if you really need a label, for now, I'll say Libertarian.

I find it hard to understand that you can't understand people not identifying with republican/democrat to the point of self-identification.

To give examples: I agree with marriage equality, but also okay with private businesses not catering a gay wedding. I am all for gun rights, but against total freedom of corporations...

I know I am easily made a fool of regarding certain topics, but that is the nature of duality. (or something)

I like the empathetic nature of the left, but do not think it should be mandated...

So I do know what I think, but that also doesn't mean my ways are set in stone...

How do just two parties, who I believe are run by money, get it right?

So like...there's a party for that? Is that what you're saying?

Is there an e-form to register? Just curious, apropos of nothing, of course...

On the weekends, I get together with John Stossel and we do jello shots off the tummy of Sarah Palin and chase tiny kittens and spank them with spatulas.

We do have applications.

I don't call myself anything. I don't need a label. Most people label me "liberal" because I am very vocal about equal rights and equal treatment under the law for everyone. Not sure how being a strong proponent of the 14th amendment makes me a "liberal" but there you have it.

InverseLookingGlass is right on.
