• Here everyone can detail their leanings and why they have them. I also have a specific question: Moses what does Conservative Marxist mean?

    Me, I am mildly Authoritarian because I’m pro-life, and pro-enviorment.

  • “Here everyone can detail their leanings and why they have them. I also have a specific question: Moses what does Conservative Marxist mean?”

    Being a Radical Conservative Communist I guess I can’t vote in the little poll of yours. Anyways, the definition is quiet easy to explain. I’m a Neo-Communist (blending Marxist and Lenin views with the New Age International Socialism/Communism) combined with Federalist, LOFT principles. Other than that there is no real meaning.

    “In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness.
    And God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done.” And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close as mud as man sat up, looked around, and spoke. Man blinked. “What is the meaning of all this?” he asked politely.
    “Everything must have a meaning?” asked God.
    “Certainly,” said man.
    “Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,” said God.
    And He went away.”

  • i don’t really fit here, i don’t think. I’m a fiscal conservative, but i also have the heart of a liberal. With the exception of Jean Cretien, I lean more to the Liberal camp in the Canadian political scape (just to the right of socialism, i guess).


  • I suppose I’m some sort of Troskyist or democratic socialist ( large differance here between social democrats); I can’t really tell whic I am, and that doesn’t really matter a great deal because I was never one for applying labels. I geuss I’m like that becuase I never really understood money. I can still remember asking my mother why we bother with it; it’s a very foreign concept to me.


  • the above post is mine.


  • Moses, I don’t really get what you’re getting at. Conservatives favor an open economic system, Communists favor a state controlled economic system.


  • well you i think you all know where i stand on politcal spectrum.

    Let the Red Flag Fly!!


  • Technically, Conservative = No Change, Liberal = Change.


  • right Yanny, people seem to forget that too often


  • where’s the libertarians???

    i’m against their stance on business regulation and the environment but otherwise i’m for it!

  • @Yanny:

    that is true…

    so thats the logical reason liberals support the palestinians…they need to change a corrupt state into a different even more corrupt state! it finally makes sense…


  • @Yanny:

    Technically, Conservative = No Change, Liberal = Change.

    Yes, but in America nochange=Capitalism, change=socialism (more or less)

    I think the choices in the poll are too limiting. What ahout “Moderate”? Or maybe its just that the Libertarian party has tainted the regular meaning of libertarian.


  • The poll is not prefect, but it is meant to be general rather than ultra-specific. That said, people tend to lean towards one of the four positions I listed. Either they believe in less government controls on personal freedom (ie. personal freedoms are like doing drugs, prostitution) and less government involvement in economic freedoms (ie. minimum wage, trade) in which case they are libertarian. If they believe in more government control of personal issues and less gov. control of economy then they are right. If they believe in more personal freedoms and greater economic controls they are left. And if they are for more government all around, they are authoritarian.


  • I think the poll is missing and important point of the “political triangle,” anarchy. Surprisingly there is authoritarian but no anarchy.

    don’t dis the poll or the A&A secret police will drag you out of your bed…and you will get cold!


  • Added Moderate 🙂


  • @Yanny:

    no one is truly moderate, though i claim I am…the republican party in America is too damn religious.


  • That may be true, but at least here’s one Republican that isn’t a WASP.


  • @TG:

    That may be true, but at least here’s one Republican that isn’t a WASP.

    what are you?
    i’m 50% italian 30%german 10% russian 10% french, jewish mother’s blood, baptized lutheran.


  • “what are you?”

    :-? Well mainly American, though if you want to get technical you can call me Californian.


  • Well you aren’t a White Anglo Saxon Person, so I’m wondering what country (ies) your heritage comes from before the Western Hemisphere. Or is it that there is no way of knowing?


  • Well you’re sort of 3/4’s right on WASP
    It’s White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant – not person (if I recall correctly)

    But I’m one part Asian, one part Afro-American, one part European. Put it all in a blender, stir on medium, and you get Moses (a nice religious name)

    “i’m 50% italian 30%german 10% russian 10% french, jewish mother’s blood, baptized lutheran.”

    I have no idea where you can get percentages from.


  • Heritage means Zip, Zero, Nada, Nothing to me. “10 % French” - Ok, I can understand knowing your Half Italian, but what does it matter if your 10% French? I certaintely am not going to treat you differently because your Half Italian, let alone 10 % french.

    You are what make yourself, it doesn’t matter who your parents were.


  • For me, the fact that my mother is Mennonite actually has some bearing on my life. Not just religiously/spiritually, but it gives me a heritage that I can identify with. What is important about this? I really don’t know. But I do feel that i am a part of something. I feel that my people’s history has something to tell me in a more personal way then the history of an Asian or American people. My heritage gives me something to connect to in some small way, it applies a chisel to a part of my identity, and makes me appreciate my life in Canada in a way that not everybody does or even can.
