Your political label...

Republican, Democrat, Libertarian...

Liberal, conservative

We use these labels to describe ourselves or others politically, but as the nature of labels go, they're all pretty lazy. For rarely do any of these terms truly describe ourselves, for more than often some aspect of this word may not actually align with our political beliefs.

So come up with your own political label(one word) and then define that label...

Green, as in jaded. No seriously, green is probably close enough. The people on this planet and the planet itself are about as important an issue(s) as you can get, in my view. Everything else comes down to the tired and cranky angry men who obliviously and blindly fuck it all up. Politics is a convoluted power shitfight which achieves frighteningly little.

That doesn't even attempt to sum it up, huh, lol.

Independent conservative, though I also agree with some elements of green politics.

Indeed, I see no contradiction whatsoever between conservatism and conservationism.

I will write a more detailed post at a later date outlining what I see as the crisis in conservatism, and my recommended prescription for fixing it.

Social liberal, by far. I want religion as far away as possible when it comes to government, public education, and, most importantly, my private life. I'll trust my own relationship with God before I'll trust some wacko cracker jack minister's interpretation.

Economic centrist. And "centrist" is probably the best way I can put it, because I find myself agreeing and disagreeing with parts of both liberal and conservative approaches.

I suspect that when you speak of liberal and conservative approaches with respect to economics, you are really referring to interventionist/statist and pro-free market approaches, respectively.

Can't do it, one word can't describe my views on issues.

Also, depends on the issue.

Humanitarian - I would have to say my political stance would have to be the equality of all man. Be it economic or social my vote goes to what's the best policy for humanity as a whole. It may go against my personal view but if the long run has the best overall benefit, it gets my vote...

Well, I'm a voting Social Democrat.

I don't always agree with what the party does, but who ever could.

My beliefs are strongly in the direction of social democratic approaches, with a bit of Green.
As much as needed, as little as possible government intervention.
The state has to support its citizens, help them when needed, but also demand them to take action for themselves.
The mixed economy is the best model for a state in my eyes.
A secular state is inevitable.

Well, that sums it up pretty well I think, otherwise I can give some more details
