Liberal socialist. Socialism will ultimately prevail. Capitalism and Communism have already failed.

Centralist because I sit on the fence on a lot of issues because I cannot make up my mind and cannot chose a side or simply do not care.
I think majority of politics is ridiculous, and I ask why most parts of government cannot get off their high horses and work together.

I'll have to agree with you there, even though I don't like the general idea of socialism, but it is what it is.

A libertarian is pretty much a classical liberal. So that means that liberals are the farthest thing away from liberals.


Yep, liberalism is a contradiction in terms.

Conservative because I am pro-life, believe that marriage is between a man and a woman (I am a christian), I believe in the right to bear arms, I believe the death penalty is needed in certain cases, I think the idea of safe spaces on campus creates intolerance and doesn't solve anything, I believe in freedom of speech, I think flag burning is disrespectful towards America and those who died for our rights, I support the military veterans, I love God and America, I believe that there are only 2 genders and America comes first.

Actually, some Christians are actually okay with same-sex marriage, and there are actually 5 sexes in the world.

Don't believe me? Look it up.

BTW, God didn't JUST create, He ALSO let things evolve. 8)

Unapologetically Liberal.

“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”

I'm kind of a Star Trek Utopian ;)
I believe that as technological progress makes more and more things affordable without excessive work invested, the humanity needs to focus more and more on values other than work and consumption.

I'd have to be centrist, as I don't fit in neatly with liberals or conservatives.

I'm anti-gun, pro-choice but I think abortion should be avoided as much as possible and people should be sexually responsible, neutral on gay marriage but leaning towards pro, I believe the nuclear family is the best family structure but I also don't think gays should be barred from adoption, anti-feminism in its modern day incarnation with its toxic ideas like male privilege and toxic masculinity, I think socialism and complete anarchy are both naive concepts, I think sexuality should stay in the bedroom, there are only two genders, there should be a complete separation between church and state and I think religion should be kept out of public schools at least. In terms of gender roles, I say just do what you want. I am anti-open borders, etc.

I like your specificity. I will try myself:

When thinking of politics, you should always consider the local culture.

I am for more gun accessibility but I'm starting from European (almost entirely banned), not North American point. I would prefer something in between.
I'm kinda pro-life but I don't think the law should require random citizens to be heroes - instead I'm for more support for mothers who had right to abort but decided not to.
Feminism has done enough for me in most fields, all I have to do is enjoy it. I believe men need some empowerment but not in sticking to abusive stereotypes (I like many Warren Farrel's ideas).
Nuclear familly is often too small, kids need more than two adults to learn relationships (I have been raised in closely-knitted extended family, I think it is better).
Consumptionism is a dead end of capitalism. Socialism is not a way to help with poverty but it's a way to manage additional wealth. Communism is great on small scales but horribly unhealthy on large scales.
I don't mind immigrants if they want to learn, work and contribute to the society. Ghettos are very dangerous and should be avoided if possible.
There are two sexes defined by reproductive abilities, with some rare exceptions like hermaphrodites; however, gender is a multi-dimensional continuum.
I am pro sexual education in neutral, informative manner.
I think we can't avoid globalisation, but we need more developement of local social life to balance its impact.

I think not all that is good should be subsided and not all that is bad should be banned. Societes are complex systems that often react in non-obvious manner.

Neither. I sometimes think liberal because the environment is top priority to me, but I also have some conservative tendencies. I think I take bits of different political standpoints and put them together.

i think the OP wants to know which side a person is closer to, not if one is strictly one side of the other. :idea: i however, am 99% far-left.
