How do you currently identify, politically? I'm a classic liberal.
I'm from the UK, our center is slightly left compared with yours.
I wish I could say progressive but recently even my friends have said Im "not as left as them". Maybe my understanding of "progressive" has been warped by militants. I don't like identity politics and the idea a persons argument can be dismissed entirely because they are X.
I agree with socialist ideas and capitalist ones. But there aslre flaws in both. Im basically just against anything that puts people so far "elite" people can't even conprehend it. I think Marxs Ideas have been misused.
Its almost like whatever we do the feudal system or the upperclass retain power money and status.
To reassess my political standing I took a test and it actually turns out I’m a Moderate Republican. When I became of voting age I registered and voted Democrat because that’s what my family did. That and being transsexual I thought that the democrats were for minorities. But seeing the craziness that is going on in the world right now made me do a lot of soul searching. I did a lot of research and watched a lot of #walkaway stories. After all of that... I guess I can say I was officially redpilled.
I am still a registered Democrat and identify myself as a progressive (classic liberal). I am in a weird position. I do not agree with Republicans or Libertarians enough to switch parties.
I believe in things like reasonable gun control, regulations on corporations, environmental regulation, builder regulations, foreign policy, and conservative economics have been proven to be catastrophes. So if there was a Unified Centrist Party I might consider switching to that... but there is not.
Ariella - like yourself I am a classic Liberal
"liberal" (lower case L is intentional) in its prescient interpretation and manifestation makes the qualified designation of "Classic Liberal" all the more valid. Hence I did not vote in your poll. If you put Classic Liberal in there - I will vote!
