    Liberal nationalist....

    Conservative....

    Basically, no party represents my interests. Right-of-center political parties' platforms are typically too interested in interfering in the affairs of other countries; in forcing certain values on people, usually religious in nature; in decentralization to the point that business can do whatever it wants.

    On the other hand, left-of-center parties are hedonistic, blaming the society for all evils; they try to control everything to the point of screwing everything up (controlling the economy, etc.); they want to eliminate all values it seems to the point where nothing is sacred anymore; are usually die-hard internationalists, which pisses me off; claims that nationalists are racists, which is total bs...among other things.

    Politics is just a bunch of sheet in the wind, and ends up creating more problems than it's worth.

    If you ask me what political philosophy I believe in, I'll have to say moderate conservative populist or whatever....

    Another tests indicates the following:

    Social conservative
    Moderate capitalist
    Moderate on libertarian/authoritarian scale
    Pacifist

    Party: Democrat
    Philosophy: Heurist
    Constitution: Liberal/Activist Interpretation (intent)
    Economy: Socialist/Capitalist

    Basically, if it's part of the Democratic Party's philosophy, I agree. Except with censorship-- that's ridiculous. And I'm kind of sick of them going more centrist to get votes; I prefer actually being liberal. Like French liberal. More student riots!

    ...Just kidding.

    I abstain from party politics, being the "Romantic Reactionary" that I am. However in elections I usually vote for the Constitutional Party.

    Party: Independent (campaign finance reform is sorely needed, members of both major parties are corrupt, not all, but many)
    Philosophy: Democratic Socialism

    In the US we currently have a corporatocracy; an entity or entities that performs solely for profit with no responsibility to society, the environment or the government itself. It has resulted in privatization of public services, deregulation and loss of services.

    I support all Parties that are liberal and democratic. And this includes all political parties in Oz at the moment. So I am spoiled for choice.

    And I like to see Government change hands on a regular basis, and so it seems do my fellow Australians.

    Liberal-conservative, federalist (contemporary definition of the latter). I'm a Republican with moderately libertarian leanings, and under any ordinary circumstances could not vote Democrat for either President or Senate because of Supreme Court appointments. Otherwise, I vote for whichever candidate violates my principles the least, and still has a remote chance of winning.

    I'm an independent and I don't vote, because personally I don't think it gets us anywhere closer to agreeing on anything as a nation. Voting is and always has been essentially one great big popularity contest. Not saying I'm in favor of a dictatorship (lawl) all I'm saying is that politicians always look so good depending on your affiliation. This is because you want to believe so bad they're going to be a good leader, and whenever they give you a reason to support that theory, you'll start jumping up and down and praising them like they were God, when really it's all just simple talk.

    Independent.

    Generally, I see both sides to conservatism and liberalism, but on the other hand, I'd rather not pick one at all.

    I don't pay attention too much to politics, but when I do it is usually from an independent stand point.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
