Equalitarian/Capitalist Reformer/Socialist/Green/Anti-Conservative/anti-nepotism/anti-pointless technology/irrational Left-wing lunatic...

- i just wanna see people who work their arses off in more physically and demanding jobs getting the best pay. (ie. if i had my way, every nurse/teacher/road worker/cleaner would be getting paid a million bucks a year. Just makes sense...

- I don't believe that how much money a child's parents just so happen to have should be what determines the quality of education and breadth of opportunities a child is offered.

I can't understand how people that put equality ahead of liberty get the title liberal (nor for that matter anglospheric conservatives).

my political party is the same as my religion...love.
neither the republocrats nor the demicans nor independents come close to what i want. i wish the democrats would step up and create a real agenda besides "not republican." my stance on issues are due to my concern for people, especially those suffering in poverty. until i find a party that matches my ideals and hopes for the future, i'll just have to continue to settle for voting for the lesser of the evils.
i suppose the green party comes close...but the green party in this area haven't been very proactive as of late.

Can't do it in one word but I would say I'm an independent thinker influenced by my moral/ethical and personal beliefs. I'm a Democrat but other than that I can't stand being labeled.

Marxist.

"Communist" has too many negative associations, the various dictators who've risen to power under the banner of communism but who've been nothing of the sort.

This is true. It's very apparent to me that many don't even know what true communism is(especially in here), they grew up during the Cold War or post Cold War and they think "evil".

And some still speak as if we're still in the Cold War...

Anyways Marx actually had some good theories, few have actually been executed properly.

Reaganite

Quote:
Those who created our country – the Founding Fathers and Mothers – understood that there is a divine order which transcends the human order. They saw the state, in fact, as a form of moral order and felt that the bedrock of moral order is religion ... Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.
If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

I don't want to start a discussion on that because it would derail the topic too much I think.

The problem with Marxism is that it only works in theory. It is a nice idea, but it is based on an idealist view of the human nature, in which greed, corruption and opportunism doesn't exist.
However, in the real world people are greedy and the equality of all people will never exist.

Centrist. New Democrat. Blue-Dog Democrat. "Third Way" fan.

...I'm basically a disciple of the form of politics created by Bill Clinton, and practiced by Hillary Clinton today. You take the best ideas from Democrats, and the best ideas from Republicans (or any other party) and make them your own. Political scientists often call this practice "triangulation." It stymies your opponents, and voters love it.

Most important, being at the center of the political spectrum is the only way to bring about lasting change. Politics is the art of the possible.
