Sounds like the average social democrat until five minutes ago, but the average alt-right neo-nazi Trump voter of current year.
I think that might be because of the way that the last presidential election restructured political divisions in America. It's become much less about a distinction between capitalism and socialism (in other words, the role of government), and much more about a distinction between Americanism and globalization (in other words, who's side the government is on). A lot of people are naturally quite confused by this new division, and struggling to know which side they now belong to.

A independent, i don't like political parties in the modern climate.

Most hardline Democrats and Republicans are pissbabies and most mediated Democrats and Republicans are boring.

I'd say that I sit in the anarchist camp, but recently I've begun to explore postmodernism after being introduced to the work of Focault and Stirner by a friend. My time on Farms has strengthened my views however, even after having the chance to have (relatively) neutral discussions with those whose views aren't the same as my own.

Stirner makes for some fun memes and quotes, but to follow his worldview would probably require one to be a sociopath.

My politics tend to go all over the place but if I had to pick I'd say I'm a centrist for the most part with a leaning to the right.

On my more leftist side, I don't believe in a god and support secularism, I think government has an important role to play in any healthy and civilized society but whose powers and limits must be clearly defined, I oppose the death penalty, I support the rights of any sexual activities among consenting adults, I think our military spending should be decreased, I think all drugs should be decriminalized but not all should be legal for recreational use (heroin and cocaine being examples), and I think if an immigrant moves to a country, learns the language and customs, assimilates and becomes a productive member of society, they should be seen as no different from a native born person, skin color, first language, etc aside.

On my more conservative side, I have zero tolerance for Islam and Marxism, I believe blacks are their own worst enemy, I think transgenderism is a mental illness, I think the United States, despite it's many flaws and misgivings, is an amazing and diverse country, I think you can't import people from the 3rd world en masse and be surprised by an influx of crime and balkanization, I think the USA should be culturally/demographically majority European/white, I think that immigration to the US should be merit-based, I think Israel is awesome and should take even more land from Palestine and even the entire Muslim world while it's at it, I think the American Indians were far from saints and that their commitment to nomadic, tribalistic societies is why North America isn't theirs anymore, and I think Mexico (and most of Latin America really) should go fuck itself with a cocaine covered syringe.

I'm a person who believes that the government should work togegher to solve problems instead of constantly bitching about their specific political views and attacking the other side because that just doesn't do any good for anyone.
Generally I don't like extremist views from either side and I also don't believe in straight up attacking the guys who don't share my political ideals. Co operation is key to problem solving.
I'm usually pretty liberal but I don't like hating conservatives just because they are conservative and likewise and liberals are not right simply because they are liberal

Economically, I am a Social Democrat/left-leaning.
In terms of social issues, I am socially libertarian.

I am VERY skeptical of politicians, billionaires, and corporations and think these types of people/institutions would never do the right thing by choice (and would probably try to exploit the average man just because the average man is neither wealthy nor powerful), which is why these things need regulation and more people should be skeptical of them.

I used to consider myself quite conservative. But lately all the online communities I hang out with--the Farms included--have become absolutely infested with the sort of mouthbreathing dumbasses who think venomous racism is "telling it like it is" so I don't really know where I stand anymore.

At this point I just think of my political heroes--Teddy Roosevelt and John Kennedy--and try to think what they'd have to say about a particular issue. Then just take it from there.

Radical views aren't necessarily violent.

If anything, the current status quo or whatever centrists want has proven to be extremely violent.

Pro-gun and anti-censorship here too. I also do not like Clinton and Stein. If it comes to it, I'll vote for Trump in 2020.

I'm going to throw out some conclusions I have made in the past few months:

-Liberals are the sort of people that think that only the government is restricted by the first amendment. Corporations shouldn't be allowed to restrict your rights either.
-Conservatives in the West ARE Liberals
-Leninism and Maoism are Capitalism for cucks
-In order for the left to succeed, they need to weed out the SJWs and the authoritarians
-The libertarian right and libertarian left are more similar than people think (>inb4 horse meme theory)
-Socialism is the ideology of the workers and their ethics. 9 times out of 10, a person claiming to be a socialist is not a socialist. Handouts for invalids is social democracy.
-Capitalism a-logs have never heard of mercantilism
-If Marx is correct about the progression of economic systems, Communism will replace Capitalism in the 4th millenium.
-The Road to Wigan Pier is Orwell's best book, and you should all read it.

In conclusion: Politics sucks, but I can't stop thinking about it.

I tend to be left leaning, but seriously, fuck SJWs. I also tend to appreciate local politicians from both major parties more than anybody who is up for POTUS. Most of them know they have a lot more to lose if they don’t keep the popuation satisfied with their performance than anybody who works in the Oval Office does.

Five years ago I would have said "Democrat," but now? I don't fucking know. Seems like every time I turn my head the agendas of every party change, usually for the worse. I believe in things that in the past were generally considered "liberal," but that shit's gone to such extremes now.

Looking forward to midterms. Did you register to vote, fellow Americunts?

You didn't go anywhere. The party took an abrupt turn into crazytown and left you behind, much as it did every other Democrat, myself included.

It's like the Left Behind series, except replace the tribulations with undiluted Autism and Fail.

Yeah, I get that. But there isn't really any established party to go to anymore. The conservatives are just as fucky for other matters and while I generally call myself a "moderate," there isn't a moderate party. Fuck, even the non-mainstream parties are all shit-tier when you do some digging. I guess that's always been the case to an extent but it's getting out of hand.
