    Cool, a dirty hippie (I'm going to see how many people I can offend in this thread... It seems like a good place to do it)

    I don't particularly like any of the political parties available right now, though, come November, I will probably vote for more Democrats than Republicans. I would consider myself independent moderate with, maybe, slightly liberal leanings. I am definitely opposed to the sharp social conservatism of most elected officials of the Republican party and oppose such things as school prayer (although not school vouchers) and increased government censorship; the Democratic party upsets me here, too: I am opposed to affirmative action because I am opposed to regarding racial, ethnic, religious, and gender for employment and applicability; oppurtunity should be by merit, not race.

    I consider forcing citizens to vote to be just as bad as not voting when it is optional--if not worse. Freedom includes the freedom to abstain.

    For those of you who said communism seriously, why would you choose communism?

    A) Communism is one of the BEST governments in principle; however, it provides no incentive to work hard so it will never work.


    B) A lot of people believe the way you do Cruxus. The only problem is that none of them are rich enough to run or have the political background to be successful. Sad, isn't it??

    Independant because it depends on the issue, I could vote liberal or conservative.

    Democratic people are too soft...consider this
    if we had gore for president and september 11th occured then what do you think would've happened? I bet gore just would of sat on his butt saying 'we'll get you!!!! someday....' and if china sent nukes at us i bet he wouldn't even have a nuclear defense and wouldn't even fire back to make the world a better place. I bet in this time of 'crisis' *ack* gore wouldn't do much. The taliban would still exist.
    I'm republican and proud

    Xterria...People your age shouldn't talk. Wait, that's being discriminate, just you shouldn't talk.

    First of all I'm a Republican. Second of all, Democrats and Republicans both rallied behind Bush. Third of all, Gore shouldn't have been representing Democrats. Third of all, China won't nuke us, because we are basically in control of the economy...Inidirectly.

    I think that pretty much every government sucks. Democracy sucks because most people are stupid. A republic is like a democracy, just more corrupt. In theory, communism works but in real life it fails and turns into a dictatorship where the dictator takes advantage of his people. Anarchy doesn't provide protection for the people. Monarchies don't work because you're screwed when you get an idiot into the throne. The BEST in theory is an enlightened monarch, but that's a hypocritical statement.
    So choose one. I think democracy is the lesser of all these evils. Oh yeah I forgot socialism. It sucks cuz its inefficient.
