    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
    -- John Stewart Mills

    libertarian is probably the closest politicial describtion for how I view my politicial stance. I am not reistered for any party - so there goes Goofball's assumption that I am a Republican.

    I vote for the individual that I best think can fullfil the job and has the most items of his agenda that falls in line on how I think about politics.

    Social programs are best handled at the community level.

    National level government should only focus on those item stated in the Constitution and let the state governments focus on the areas that are not covered by the Federal Government has visioned by the Founding Fathers.

    I don't know, I don't think any of them

    Republican - No, because I avidly support monarchy

    Democrat - No, because I would rather have a pseudo democracy, where not everyone can vote

    Libertarian - Not a clue what this is

    Statest - as above

    Moderate - Assuming this is between right and left, I still don't know what it entails

    Socialist - No, because I don't believe in making the rich poorer

    Communist - No, because I am not working class and as above

    Fascist - No, because I think races should be equal

    this topic brings up again the problem of assigning political labels when americans and europeans aren┤t talking out of the same handbook....

    to answer the question......

    on an european sense - Moderate
    on an american sense -Liberal/socialist/commie/pinko.....the list of things i┤ve been called goes on and on..

    Benevolent fascist - which includes beliefs in a strong military, aggressive foriegn policy, traditionalism, nationalism, anti-communism/socialism, government-industry cooperation, a strong role for the military in the government and does not include beliefs in genocide, concentration camps, political assassinations and all those nasty habits that gave fascism such a bad name in the 30s.

    If I was to put a label on myself, it would probably be closest to national socialism. I voted gah.

    I'm sort of a socialist libertarian liberal.

    I believe healthcare and education should be available (and if possible, free of charge, otherwise it should be affordable for everyone) to everyone, rich and poor. I don't believe in taking from the rich and giving to the poor, I'd rather see the government giving everyone the same benefits, the rich can be taxed more than the poor, but it should be reasonable. This makes me a socialist in US terms i guess, but I'm more a libertarian in Europe, because our governments are much larger and take on much more than in the US, too much imho.

    I'm a liberal because I just don't care what people do in private as long as it doesn't hurt (non-consenting) other people.

    I consider myself a libertarian. In truth, the only party I really find offering any kind of exciting new ideas was the Reform party (before it got hijacked by Pat Buchanan). I'm registered Republican, because my state doesn't have free primaries, and you have to declare a party affiliation and I see primaries as the only real choice (elections tend to be cartoonish). Bush vs. Kerry, no real choice. Bush vs. McCain... Hmmmm......

    I think your analysis of where you are is brilliant. You are prety much the standard 'liberal' over here, definately in the UK anyway. Our Liberal Democrats are pretty much exactly what you state - for social fairness, but social fairness which creates a situation equal for everyone, rather than trying to actively do more for those nearer the bottom than at the middle. And also for a strong capitalist system.

    I disagree fundamentally with some of the views expressed by them, but you have to respect European liberals, they talk sense most of the time.

    And Shadeswolf is most definately a Republican.
