Center-left overall, I suppose.

Technocratic Red Tory, but expect me to play political mercenary as an independent voter.

Alas, we're all liberals here, as much as even the conservatives don't like to admit it.

Quite frankly I'd call myself a Liberal Conservative, but as a Centrist I tend to piss off a lot of morons on all sides, which makes it SOOOO much more fun.

Kind of like how the liberals are actually conservative even if they won't admit it? :rolleyes:
Perhaps I should have clarified for smart alecs like yourself: modern conservativism is largely rooted in the liberal ideology such that it's become a traditionalist sect of liberalism, accepting individualism as a tenet and standing opposed to collectivism (which in the modern world is the domain of socialism.)

Except for the liberals that prefer regressive ideology like keeping the races and genders separate, which is what conservatives used to do when upholding traditional values.

It's debatable. Some would argue that such people are not liberals but rather thinly-veiled socialists (a sentiment supported by many of the "regressive" movements embracing socialist dogma as their own), while others are more apt to consider them to be fundamentalists of the liberal variety (born out of distorted views of individual identity).

Add in that it seems some factions like to flip-flop every few decades, and it becomes so tempting to turn into Yzma and smack 'em with a hammer for being so bloody confusing. :p

A very thin veil indeed. It's easy to see how various groups would have a tendency to lean in certain directions, but some terms are starting to become synonymous due to the ignorant loudmouths giving their particular group a bad name, or those wishing to slander those they perceive as an enemy.

Indeed, and given the interchangeability of "ideology" and "religion" it's not surprising that they're also hard on heretics and heathens alike, even if they refer to such by other names. Alas, we're no different in that regard, but that's a discussion for another thread.

No direct political affiliation on my end, mostly depends on the programs of the groups of my country. Though in the whole i'd suppose i'd lean towards the left a bit, although i'm always open to hear the reasons of the opposition

Just about the only universal thing I've found is when they hit the zealot stage they become a seething ball of rage bent on the destruction of anything they remotely perceive to be an enemy. =/

What is this third way of which you speak? I've heard of left and right. Is it the center? Directly forward, perhaps? Up? Down? Straight into the ground? The opposite way of whatever angry mob happens to be protesting that day? :p

It's a pretty vague term in truth, but it was the best one I could think of while ignoring another term which you may be more familiar with, but which is surrounded with negative connotations. Think Blair or the UK Liberal Democrats to get the gist of it.

A large part of that is born out of our tendency to fear violent death, or else being made irrelevant. Unfortunately, it's a mentality that, while advantageous for our Stone Age ancestors when it came to real threats to their survival, is ill-suited for a modern society where such threats have been reduced to mere technicalities and thus irrelevant.

I am one of those 'fiscally conservative, socially liberal' guy.

But recently, I am finding right wing views increasingly favorable. Perhaps it has something to do with all the frustration I am feeling towards our president, who is an idiotic North Korea sympathizer surrounded by his left-wing fascist supporters.
