Bernie shoulda won.
I am a very issue by issue person, and have gone into political fights on some very narrow political issue and only later known that OMG there were Republicans on the same side. I couldn't care less, really.I like to approach politics on an issue by issue basis.
Sounds like the average social democrat until five minutes ago, but the average alt-right neo-nazi Trump voter of current year.I'd say that I'm probably something of a heterodox liberal. I broadly agree with liberal principles (equality of the sexes, civil liberties, gay rights, freedom of expression, etc), but I feel that mainstream liberals have failed to adequately uphold or defend these values against a growing set of reactionary forces which clearly seek to undermine liberal thought and replace it with varying forms of tribalism (as evidenced by the current state of what we might call 'identity politics').
I'm especially skeptical of mass immigration, and I take the view that multiculturalism has by and large failed. I'm also significantly less optimistic about globalization than most liberals appear to be, and I think that the West in particular needs to rediscover the merits of carefully thought out economic protectionism (which works, no matter what mainstream economists will tell you). Beyond that, I don't really know how I would summarize my views. I'm not a big fan of identifying too strongly with political labels, and I like to approach politics on an issue by issue basis.
