Now, i have yet to realy read what everyone else has posted, but as for myself... I am so far to the right, i have troble staying on the wing. (right being Liberal... i think. at least that is what i am told.) If anyone has read my rants, its prolly obvious to...


Uh, that would be left but right of socialist. So, you are no where near the tip of the wing. I can be centrist but I tend to be more on the Left. You know, Green. :D

For me it would depend upon the issue. On some issues (like abortion), I tend to be more conservative. On issues of social justice, I tend to be more moderate leaning liberal. On issues such as globalization, I'd have to say I'm hardline moderate. :lol: Debbrah's recipe would work for me, in fact, but probably in different proportions.



Because of this hodge-podge, I find myself amused at those who claim to be hardline conservative or hardline liberal. No one can agree fully with any given political alignment, no matter how hard people try to toe party lines. There are just so many different issues for any one person to consider, even amongst the least educated of humanity.
The many are the many. Respect them as such.



Boing! Boom-Tschak!

I can agree with that. I think each issue or decision should be approched on it's own merit, not by which party or group supports or opposes it. That just leads to some extremely poor decision making.

I don't politically speak, as I'd probably get in trouble for calling all the voters complete idiots.

Seriously I think most politics is generally a waste of time, after hearing some of the minutes of past cabinets (QLD Australian government), where they were discussing the choice of removal of the law against fortune telling etc.

This a direct quote; 1 April 1987



MR HAYWARD: I ask the deputy Premier, Minister Assisting the Treasurer & Minister for Police: does he recall that yesterday in House he declared his lack of faith in people who tell fortunes? That was the justification that he gave for retainin the offence of fortune-telling for gain in the Vagrants, Gaming, & Other Offences Act. Given the current trend towards Police Department drafted legislation being brought forward that his personal view on the merits of a victimless pastime should be the basis for citizens in this State receiving criminal records.

MR GUNN: I can tell the honourable member's fortune for him: he will have a very short stay in the House. As I have told him, I have no faith in fortune-tellers; I have no faith in horoscopes. I told him yesterday that a broken-down clock is right twice a day and that at times for fortune-tellers undoubtly will fluke the right answer. However, what the police are up against is that fortune-tellers are doing this for gain. If they like to have a little game of cards, as they do with the honorable member, and tell his fortune from these cards - I have already told him that I know what his fortune will be in this place -

AN OTHER MEMBER INTERJECTED

MR GUNN: I do not want to get into the honorable member's sloppy past. I have no intention of doing that.

I stand by what I said in the House yesterday: that it is against the law to tell fortunes for profit.


Did I just hear one threaten the other?, then insult him.. hmm sound like beauracratic stupidity to me. It so comforting to know that these are the people governing the state.

PS: that law is still in effect, and still catches the unwary.

It's no better here in the states.



The democrats and republicans are often at each other like rabid dogs. Police have, in fact, been called on at least one occassion that I recall reading about.

Have you seen the new commercial?



I think they play it on MTV or VH1. They want more people in the age bracket of 18 to 30 to vote. Called 20 million loud.



Anywayz, this guy says



"the gov makes decisions every day that affect me. They decide if my older brother goes to war, how much my grandma gets in her social security check and even who i marry. At least i get to decide who they are."

It's really funny you metion that. That's the Rock the Vote folks. The funny thing is that, since the RtV program started voters in their target ages groups have DROPPED! It is apparently having an opposite effect from what it was intended to do. I guess it's the old..."This is your brain..." dilemma. :lol:

This is my dilemma:

I refuse to vote for Bush I hate the guy and what he did to this country. At the same time, I dont want to switch horses midstream....being that we are in the middle of a war.



I hate Kerry he is a contradictory incompetent boob who changes his views publicly every five seconds.



For me it would be a choice for the lesser of two evils.....simply, I dont like my choices. It is not that I dont care but quite the contrary......

ummm, I just dont know.

well, to be honest, most politicians are incompetent boobs who are bad people overall. What you have to look at is their support staff, as they are the ones who really get things done most of the time.



of course, I don't think we have much of a choice at all this time. I think I'll vote for Dilbert :lol:

They also play it on Nickelodeon (The kid network) :lol:


"At least i get to decide who they are."


If only I did!



Ever heard of the dilemma called Sophie's choice? It's based on a woman who was forced to decide which of her children would live and which would be killed in front of her. If she refused, both would die. She chose, and never forgave herself..... It is used in ethics to point out the choiceless choice, the one where there is no meaningful way to make a choice. I'm getting to that point with voting...there is almost no choice...
