    No, they're not, but they still kind of suck.

    As you said, they will have to be properly challenged.

    2020 Political Quiz



    I think the current Libertarian stance on the science and healthcare questions pushed that party far down on the list for me.
    Those same things, plus education and transportation pushed socialism much higher for me.


    There is definitely a difference in how I would categorize myself based on ideal societal functioning (compass), philosophies about society (politiscales) and practical position about policy (isidewith). Yet another set of reasons for never joining a party

    If the 2024 presidential election were tomorrow, these apparently are where my practical stances on policy would put me:

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I look down at my political compass, and see that power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, so my political compass points towards liberal democracy, which limits power by the Separation of Powers.

    I'd advise against an Electoral College, though, since that doesn't work out too well.

    I will take your advice, Julius, but don't worry, we have a Parliamentary democracy, and we find it easy to dismiss a Prime Minister who isn't performing.

    What we lack is Constitutional free speech, all we have is a ruling by the High Court.

    However your system is full of high energy, a positive outlook, you are extraordinarily resilient, and highly inventive, while we are laconic.

    Actually our system is half way between the British system and the American system. We like to think we have the best of both worlds.

    However, although we will remain staunch allies of the USA, in CANZUK we will be moving slightly closer to the British. This will make us a stronger ally of the USA.
