current political stances?

Recommended Posts

With the amount of shit circulating around the media at the moment about Trump's auto-tariffs, brexit, Venezuela's current 10 million percent inflation rate, I have a few questions for you all:

  1. What is your Political stance (I.E: Republican, Democrat, left, right, etc)?
  2. Has this changed at all in recent years?
  3. If it has, what changed it for you?

1. Central left
2. I used to be very anti-EU and a free market supporter. 
3. Seeing how much EU has improved my country, how many options I now have as an EU citizen and that me, and our state, are apart of something bigger. We can't be simply pushed around by the powers anymore, as we are apart of the powers now. People talk a lot of shit about EU, and that's good. It has a lot of problems that need to be addressed, but I can't imagine Europe without open borders, eurozone, free student exchange programs and so much more. It's a dream that any of us can just pack our things and go live to a country hundreds of kilometres away, without any restrictions whatsoever.

Nice, love threads like this

1. Right-Wing, Monarchist, Nationalist Conservative, Capitalist (in that order) 

2. Hmmm.. not really, was always a Nationalist ever since i was young, my dad made sure of that hahah. I guess i was a little more socialist when i was young.

3. I became more free-market oriented when i got more life experience, my Dad also knows a lot about such thing so he passed it down to me. Most socialists are also SJW's which just made me want to distance myself from them. I also read the book "Basic Economics" which i highly recommend. 

Here's a politiscales test for reference:

1) I don't really know. I guess i'm somewhere in the middle. I hate blindly following one side of things because both sides can do equally retarded things all the time. I just kind of agree with what I agree with at that moment, and don't really like aligning myself with a political party for that reason. Dunno, just seems silly to say "Well I don't agree with that personally but i'll pretend I do because it's part of my political party's stance on the subject" it's just dumb to me. 

2) I've always been pretty moderate in terms of political views but I used to be a bit more left leaning. 

3) Just being open to more sides. Used to be that if I heard someone was for instance pro life and very against things like abortion, i'd not much care to hear their side of things. Nowadays whether through sheer not caring enough anymore, or being more open, i'm usually game to hear everyone's side of things whether I agree or not on principle.

Used to be pretty radical, tried listening for once, got less radical.

Right wing, EU sceptic (I fucking hate the EU) and SJW/Extremist liberal stomper. 

Brexit and post Trump election brought out the worst in the left wing bias media as well as politicians and now its there for everyone to see.

1. I don't lean towards any political party.

2. Not really, no side has been able to attract me with their views.

Also Brexit will really be detrimental for the world's future, it's like a coin flip.

1. I'm a leftist. American politics are a joke, as are the major political parties. It's treated way too similarly to a sports rivalry.

2. Used to be more moderate, even voted Republican once upon a time.

3. Prefer not to answer here.

Okay, let's add some spiciness to this thread

For those 'middle' people, if you were forced to choose between a Tony Blair (viciously middle with a few drops of right) or a Nick Clegg (a middle extremist with the smallest drop of left) who would you go for?

  1. What is your Political stance (I.E: Republican, Democrat, left, right, etc)?
    I was raised a Democrat because my father worked for a railroad, so if a Republican was in office the railroad got no funding and layoffs happened, if a Democrat was in office the railroad got funding and my dad had a job. 
     
  2. Has this changed at all in recent years?
    Kind of? I don't feel I know enough about politics to form a sound opinion. I no longer have the motivation to back either party.
     
  3. If it has, what changed it for you?
    Age. I got old, basically. I remain complacent to the whole ordeal because I do not believe my vote matters. It's just justification for the vote placed in the Electoral College but the majority vote is by no means a required vote, just a strong suggestion. I get the feeling that the decision is already decided before the votes are even held.

Super right wing- It's basically a life or death situation here.

Never changed and never will change.

Well, in terms of politics, I usually don't concern myself unless it's an issue I care about. For example, I want to go independent because I'm sick of my countries fate being decided by Westminster. 

I'd say I most lean towards the left, however I do have some right wing views.

Also, I choose neither. Both of them are tosspots.

Immigration alone could be something that can cause a lot of unhappiness among the masses, trading and all sorts of things. What I'm trying to say is, that Brexit can happen peacefully and nicely if the EU provides a good deal and if it's carried out well by the UK government but no one knows how it'll all go down.

1. Blairism is considered to be slightly right winged regardless of TB's political party. 

2. Nick Clegg is lib dem and is definitely a slight leftie. 

Both personal opinions based on what I've seen and read, sue me🤷‍♂️

The EU has the deal it wants, 40 billion pounds for the privilege of leaving. They never wanted to make a decent deal within the 2 and a half years of negotiations because they want to punish people like me and my country because brexit is damaging to its infrastructure.
