well, i can't post in either the liberal or conservative threads because i'm neither. i go both ways when it comes to every issue... and with how reletive few responses those threads have gotten verses members here on ATS either most of you don't care or are in the same boat as i.

i'm anti-abortion
i'm anti-death penalty
i'm anti-racism
i'm pro-gay rights/marriage
i'm pro-women's/men's equality
i'm anti-afirmitive action/reparations
i'm neither for nor against the war with iraq
i'm anti-drugs
i'm pro-middle class tax cuts
i'm pro-upper class tax cuts
i'm pro-business, both big and small
i can't stand far right or far left people who all they do is try to change your view and give no hard evidence supporting what they say
i'm anti-welfare
i'm anti-universal healthcare
i'm pro-second ammendment
i'm pro-seperation of church and state, but anti-having religious icons (ie ten commandments) removed from public places
i'm pro-military buildup


"in the middle"... "on the fence"... "middle of the road"... that's what i am

Ironicly, whenever I take those online political tests I usually score middle of the road. However, ask anyone I know or have debated here, and generally I'm labeled a far right conservative...Seems odd, anyone else run into this discrepancy?

You are what my Uncle would call wishy-washy for not following a single party 100%, and I would call you someone whose opinion should be respected, because they make their own mind up, rather then following what their "party" tells you to believe. Keep up the open minded search for knowlege!

That's ok, cmdrkeenkid. You don't need to have a political affiliation for me to hate you


Seriously though. I am pretty a chaos oriented fellow myself. Too bad that isn't a political party...

Well that's the thing. If I had to say that if I am any one thing it would have to be that I am 'Pro-make up your own damn mind and take responsibility for your actions'. They have a party for that?

Looks to me like your're a republican. The ones with the "R" are republican views. Admit it. Just come out....

Hey JJ, I find myself in that category all the time.

I am labeled (by myself a lot of the times) as a conservative but I have serious liberal tendancies.

I think it's funny that with all the "registered" Dems a Reps we have in this country that almost none of them prescribe to over 75% of their parties platform (which they almost never stick to).

Shouldn't we have a HUGE percentage of independants?

I don't care who you are, if you vote for your "party" across the board you are a fool.

My assessment is Log Cabin Republican due to the pro-gay marriage view. I'm not saying you practice ALL their tenants Cmdrkeenkid
but you'd be comfortable with their views.

hmm I'm having the same problem:

i'm Pro-abortion
i'm Pro-death penalty
i'm anti-racism
i'm pro-gay rights/marriage
i'm pro-women's/men's equality
i'm anti-afirmitive action/reparations
i'm against the war with iraq
i'm Pro-drugs (only for medical use, not for teenagers!!)
i'm pro-middle class tax cuts
i'm againt-upper class tax cuts
i'm pro-business, both big and small
i'm Pro-welfare
i'm Pro-universal healthcare
i'm pro-seperation of church and state
i'm anti churches (not religion(s)!)
i'm pro-military buildup


I'm pro military build up, I am fascinated by military technology, but yet I'm against the war with Iraq.
I voted 'republican' /right wing, but I often regret I did.

Zion Mainframe you're a Southern Democrat.


I wouldn't be far off from you on anything, if anything.

Really your only caveat seems to be military build up. So if you found a Dem platform that was pro-military, seems you'd be pretty happy with everything else.

That's me to a tee....except on the military build up.....and voting for Republicans at the Federal level.....I've often voted Republican locally. If the definition of that can be taken to be pro military technology build up...that's cool.
The problem has been it happening absent the pitfalls of the Military Industrial Complex (MIC).
Lord knows we didn't need lumbering land cannons in 2001...but the MIC had us appropriate for them.

i'm pro-universal healthcare (obviously, coming from the UK - plus they saved my life 4 years ago)

Well I'm in neither camp either (because they're both full os shit) but I still post in those threads. However, your post says to me "I'm "I don't f***ing care"". In many ways (and I don't this in too much offense, I don't have a problem with you and an excellent poster) I trust you less than both sides. At least they believe and feel strongly about their position.

P.S. Colonel your post was comedy gold. Although I'm sure you were quite serious it was like you were a doctor giving out his diagnostic, it hit the funny bone thank you.
