Labels are over-rated. Screw that!

But if we must, then I prefer "Angry Masses"!

I`m very confused right now... it seems very very very important for some members here to put me in a political box, in order for them to know if I`m friend or foe and how to treat me in discussion...

Now I have a big problem I myself can`t really decide what political affiliation I have...

I cant stand the political correctness and the woke culture of the left, and cant stand the adheration to capitalism and the conservatism by the right either...

I`d like to get confusion out of the way, so whoever thinks that political affiliation is an important factor defining a Person, doesnt have to wonder who I am.

But first I need to know who I am, no worries there won`t be a thread where I ask for help choosing my gender


If you`d have to box my political position what box would you think fits best. feel free to ask any question that could help you find a fitting box.


Don’t box yourself into a political party. They cannot and will not represent you as an individual. Not dems, not reps, not even libertarians. Even independents have a certain ideology about them depending on who they’re running against.

Just be you, learn about who’s running for whatever office or position, and make the most educated Vote you can based on who the best candidate for the job is. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Anyone with a D or an R next to their name is exactly a part of the problem. I promise you that.

I left the US at the age of ten, so I won't pretend to know enough about US life/politics to ever label anyone.

Just for fun, have you tried the myriad online quizzes that may help answer your question?

I tried one, only answering (in my aforementioned ignorance) 21% of the questions. The results aren't black and white, but a list by percentage of the parties that best fit your answers. Apparently, it suggested I should have voted Kanye West!

Yes.

Mine showed that I'm a high functioning sociopath who likes long walks on the beach and puppies.

LOL, take it again when you reach your destination and the puppies are grown. Can a sociopath change over time?

Yes, I've gotten better at hiding that I don't have any emotions.

I don't like boxes, but...

I know what PC and the woke culture is, it is easily definable with lots of real world examples to choose from.

The same cannot be said for 'capitalism and conservatism'. There are many forms of capitalism, most of which are distortions and and perversions of what I call free market capitalism.

As for conservatism, I think that is a misnomer. I prefer 'small government whose functions are limited to only those mandated by the original Constitution'. Yes, this means abolishing 80-90% of the departments and functions the current government is engaged in, form the Departments of Education, HHS, Energy, FDA, etc etc ad nauseum.

Just be who you are, think what you like, and say what you have to say. Sometimes we might agree and sometimes we might not. I won't think less of you unless you're nasty about disagreements. Generally, I don't take too much here seriously.

There is no 'Box'.


Identity politics is the fuel of the derping masses, the Un-Self-Actualized.

Just be you. Quit looking for anyone's approval

I use apolitical. It confuses people as no one knows the meaning of the word, but it's got politics in it so I get a free pass and no one questions me after that.

It's better to confuse than argue. After that head explosion, we can get on to the really important stuff, like how many years will Tom Brady play and still be useful?

Life is so much more fun when you don't take it seriously. Anyway, OP, don't think in terms of boxes that other stupid idiots want to put you into. Remember what Peart said, "An ounce of perception, a pound of obscure".
