Default Political views?

Discuss your political views here.


You're probably gonna hate me for this, like those stuck-up jerks at TCOD do.

But...

Personally, I like the philosophy of Karl Marx.

My political idol is probably Vladimir Lenin, the first leader of the greatest nation ever to exist. Unfortunately, I was a fetus when they disbanded.

Communists are better than capitalists for many reasons, but most oft hem are either rambly or too personal, or I could maybe get banned for saying them.

Discussing why a government is better with factual or logical reasoning will not get you banned.

Great nations usually need to last past their formation stages before they will ever be considered great.

Lenin went against Marx's philosophy of communism as well so good luck explaining that.

>Implying Leninist communism follows Marxist philosophy

Anyway, I don't believe that you can have just one "political view." It's all contextual. Even prescribing to general political ideologies (e.g. liberal, conservative, libertarian, etc.) amounts to nothing because there will always be variations. Hence, I consider trying to categorize and label ourselves based on our political views to be an exercise in futility, whose only final purpose is to divide us and leave us with a profound hatred of those who don't share our labels based on the basic human fear and distrust of anything different.

Yeah, I'm a non-conformist. Deal with it man.

As a rule of thumb, I hate Republicans. Don't like Democrats either, but I hate Republicans. That is not to say I hate all Republicans or disagree with the concept of small government and low taxes. I merely hate most Congressional Republicans due to their hypocritical and self-delusional views.

This.

I don't hate the democrats because I'm on the strong left side of the political spectrum but congressional Republicans make me sick.

Politicians in general make me sick. Most Congressional Democrats are just as hypocritical or self-delusional as the Republicans, it's part of being in politics.

You aren't wrong. I just naturally hate Republican methods of getting votes. They prey on the stupid pretty much and unfortunately there are a lot of stupid people in the U.S.

Congratulations, you have just described every political party ever. And you don't "naturally" hate the Republican party, your political views have been molded over time.

In all seriousness, I'm centre-left; I believe that liberalism is the best way for society to function. I think that socialism is the best way for the country to achieve economic success.
