This is actually the thread that made me rage last night.
It's just discussing.
I used to want to move back to the US and live there. Now not so much. I'm actually happy to be born in Europe.

Being liberal to me means liberal in all ways. Social, economic and political.
Not sure if libertarian fits, but I never liked labels.
It's quite funny, in Norway the "left" side wants to control everything, fill the government offices with people to keep the employment down using
oil money, strangle debate with "PC" type complaints and newspeak. And then call them self liberals.
The biggest party on the "right" is for economic liberty, "freedom under responsibility", and have the most open gays of any party in the country.
They are called "conservative".
In the US there is no real choice. Both parties candidates are vetted to make sure they won't try anything stupid. The debates are reduced to sound
bites and who can gotcha who, not real issues.
There is no chance in hell for an independent without major funding to even be registered in the polls.
It seems to me that the whole system is broken over there and I'm not sure what could save it except some form of a reboot or major reform.
