    Politics are all a sham, a better question to ask is what Political philosophy are you in closest affinity with.

    I am a Utilitarian.

    Subjective opinion. But I'll allow it.
    Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon and Nordic culture roughly corresponding to fate. It is ancestral to Modern English weird, which has acquired a very different meaning.

    I'm progressive and anti-Republican. Because of the way US elections work, that makes me a Democrat by default.

    Yes it is a subjective opinion.

    Yet the objective point is that people tend to identify with political parties and not political philosophies. If I want to know more about your political orientation, I should ask you what political philosophy you identify with and not what political party you support. As you may be supporting a political party for ulterior reasons, whereas the philosophy that you believe in tells me more about you as a thinker.

    Well, I am a traditional Labour Party supporter, but I have never voted for them on the local or national elections. As The Labour party has pretty much been run by twats for the last 25 years.

    Tony Blair is going to resign some time in May, after the local elections, so I/we will have to see who takes over.

    I voted Green in the last two elections, but that was with ex-PC (conservative) Jim Harris at the helm. I haven't checked, but it's likely things will take a turn for the left under Elizabeth May's leadership.

    I think Harper's Conservatives are doing a decent job; in the next election he'll probably be a second to not voting/decling my vote.

    I'm not registered with any party. I do my best to vote per issue and according to the politicians running, not necessarily the party they represent (not always easy, I'll admit). Frankly, I usually end up voting against the other candidates, not for the one. This means that in the last state election I actually voted for the Libertarian candidate because I knew I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I actually voted fro Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I didn't find the Democratic candidate (Phil Angelides) to be all that impressive.

    Frankly, I find voting to be a bit of a chore since I've never been happy with any of the candidates. Maybe if I was I'd feel like I was actually doing something. I vote anyway because I think the process is important, regardless of how much individual power I may or may not actually have.
