Demo......or Republican. Or maybe just my own classification? I really don't know, and don't know how to tell. I'll give you some information that I think may be relavent, but I don't even know what questions to ask my self to determine this. Questions from you guys on this matter to better tell my status would be appriciated. Guns... I love them Carry licenses are B.S., that's what the second ammendment is for. AWB - also bullshit, and I hate it. I could go in for days here so I'll stop now. Abortions... I dunno. It's not my body or life being affected, so I figure I don't have the right to control it. That doesn't mean I like it though. Money... I get about $18000 a year and my wife makes about $16000. I don't like (nor do I use) welfare, but do believe that maybe on an individual basis some people might really need it (like homeless vets, hungry kids, and whatnot). Misc. I really dislike clinton. Bush so far is fine by me (we'll have to see how the sunset thing goes to be sure). Any other determining factors that I might know the answer to at 21 years of age? Thanks for any help!

If you believe that government's job is to have some "kinder, gentler society" vision and to protect you, then you can call yourself liberal. If you believe that government should be just there enough to ensure national defense, operate a uniform and fair criminal justice system and have a goal towards securing liberty for all, you can call yourself libertarian. Obviously you are here, so we already know you have a libertarian leaning. (And yes, I know the term "liberal" has been hijacked from it's original meaning, but so has "libertarian" really)

Doublefeed...... I like the second choice you gave - Libertarian (is that even a political classification?). sgtar15....... Pretty much. That's why I would like to know what to call myself when talking about heated issues. WofWof..... South Park Republican.....LOL. Sounds funny. I'm still looking for that prior thread.

Libertarian is a party and a legitimate political classification. Of course, like the Green party and other semi-popular third parties, they stand little chance of being elected to most major offices, though there are reportedly some scattered around minor offices. They generally believe in individual rights, personal responsibility, and generally leaving other people alone if they aren't harming someone's rights to life, liberty, and property. One of their more controversial positions (esp. among gun owners) is the opposition to the war on drugs. The libertarian position is that restricting what adults can do to their bodies is unconstitutional and wrong, and that the war on drugs is a gigantic waste of money and an excuse for limiting our rights. They also generally oppose welfare, social security, and things like that in favor of a pure capitalist economy. They are also the only party to my knowledge that opposes all gun laws. I tend to agree with them on most things, but some of their members take positions that I do not agree with. These generally involve the millitary, foreign relations, and things like the War on Iraq/War on Terror. Feel free to investigate and ask more questions.

Aces and Eights.... Thanks for the link. Highest celebrity match for me is Pat Buchannan by 50% Says that I match the rebublican party by 72% economic liberttarian 69% Personal libertarian 72% Hmmm Libertarian sounds too close to liberal which is usually referred to as liberal bastards around here. Makes my head itch LOL.

Mace..... I think that's well put compared to my research. Thank You. Garand Shooter...... I scored nearly the same on your short quiz link. Libertarian So I guess it's safe to say that I closely match republican and libertarian views and that there isn't a "right" answere in my case. To best sum me up I'm a Libertarian, but could also swing with Repub. for voting purposes. Sound right? Thanks for all the help!
