What are you?

(I think this would do well sticky-ed )

Just so we know each others' core beliefs, go ahead and post your:

-> Nationality

-> Basic political tenants

-> Religion (for our purposes, this will include atheism )

-> Major issues you believe in

___________________________________________

Here's mine...

-American

-I consider myself very Libertarian-minded. I favor a minimalist government with as few taxes as possible. However, I'm a bit more Republican-minded on moral issues, though in many cases I think they should just be left up to state governments to decide.

-Roman Catholic

-I'm anti-illegal immigration, anti-abortion, anti-affirmative action, and pro-Israel

What do you wish to hear? That I once believed in the code of the Jedi? That I felt the call of the Sith? That perhaps I once held the galaxy by it's throat? That for every good work I did I brought equal harm upon the galaxy? That perhaps what the greatest of the Sith Lords knew of evil they learnt from me?

Okay, I just couldn't resist doing that even if some would argue parts are fairly accurate. For real, my name is indeed Nancy Allen, I'm a French Canadian but don't hold that against me. I believe in having the best political party for the times, compared to Kerry Bush was the right man for the job, and now we need a change with the Democrats and Obama or Hilary. There's simply not the money to satisfy our political needs and wants and I would agree that war is part of the reason for that. My religion could perhaps be best described as heritical, I support religious belief, or non belief, and probably know best Christianity. Israel has a right to their country, and a right to burn when they do things like targeting civillians in the battle against Hezbollah. Pro Israel but they are bound by the same rights and responsibilities as everyone else. At times I wonder if it would be for the best to close off our boarders to immigrants, but maybe that's just a tired mind thinking. Anti getting girls knocked up and pregnant, as that puts them in the difficult position of whether or not to have the baby. I believe in swift, decisive justice and doing whatever it take to defend lives. Does that include war and torture? Yes it does, but Iraq was wrong, no question, and torture very rarely works. And on that note probably not as much patience as I should for the far left, who believe terrorists have rights and truth serum is torture. Now arn't you glad you asked?

-> Nationality...American and damn proud of it

-> Basic political tenants...I believe that democracy is a bad form of government, but it is the best form of government. By the people, for the people thing. I truly, truly, believe in Capitalism. But not pure capitalism, the market needs some government regulation here and there.

-> Religion (for our purposes, this will include atheism ) I was a Catholic now I follow my own moral code and beliefs. Believe and god and somewhat spiritual. I also believe in Karma and some tenets of Transcendentalism.

-> Major issues you believe in

Things I would like the government to focus on-

-find a much more efficient fuel alternative
-get off dependence of Arab oil
-education system management reform
-reduce outsourcing as much as possible
-divert more funds to space research and other new technologies
-reduce the influence of wealthy elite and corporate leaders in the government
-moderate the businesses especially Oil companies but still keep a capitalist atmosphere
-keep ahead of Chinese/East Asian and EU industry
-reduce national debt
-focus on commerce and education

Fine. Here's my profile:

-> Nationality: American Citizen

-> Basic political tenants: Sophism. Truth is an utter construct of the audience, and if you sawy the audience, you can change the Truth. (I think I'm the only Sophist I know of) Also, a Fiscal Conservative (strays towards Authoritianism as well).

-> Religion: Islam.

-> Major issues you believe in
-The fate of religion in the future.
-The End of the World (5 Billion Years From Now), and The End of Humanity.
-What is Truth? What are Ideas?
-Oh, and the National Debt, due to being a fiscal conservative.

-> American

-> None really. In my opinion, all politicians lie and cheat. If anything, I consider myself more of a Democrat than anything.

-> Christian (yes, I'm a Christian and a Democrat, isn't it crazy )

-> Increase studies on global warming
- stopping (or at least reducing) illegal immigration
- reducing outsourcing
- greatly reducing our "responsibility of spreading democracy throughout the world"

Huh, interesting thread. I might as well clarify my breed of animal.

Nationality: American

Basic Political Tenets: The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence
Truth be told I have a devil may care attitude unless it is something that violates the Constitution. I don't trust the govt. seeing as today's events are related to the uncoverings of Iran Contra meaning the covert ops. I am ticked that there are people who can't tell the difference between Socialism, Communism and Nationalism though I have a deep regard for ED's opinion on that matter. For all intents and purposes, I am a leftie Commie Pinko Person meaning that I am one of those damned liberals who believes in equality for all regardless of race or creed and a strong bias against capitalism and the misuse of science by the govt. There see how nice I am?

Religion: You really want to ask that? I was born and raised a Roman Catholic but I am no more Catholic than the Pope himself. I am just a plain non denominational Christian who believes that salvation comes through believing that Christ died for our sins so that we may be saved. However I do have leanings in eastern philosphy and an espoused interest in all things ancient and mythological. A sufferrer of the Home Inquisition about whether or not I have turned total pagan though I am comforted by the fact that mach says that I am far from being total pagan.

Major issues: Stupid Patriot Act since the feds think that little old ladies who get together on a Saturday morning and discuss the downsides of a Rep. Govt are really covert terrorists. Yeah right. The fact that it suspended habeus corpus and made it legal to imprison people suspected of terrorism without trial or due process. Hello that is like the Japanese internment
Spreading democracy in the Middle East. Stupid politicians don't realize that democracy contradicts certain tenets in Islam. See where I am getting at? Also a blatant reminder of Wilson's making the world safe for democracy
The fact that peole still think Communism is like with the USSR when in fact that is a form of facism.
The spending of money on this so called war on terrorism and nothing being done to help educ in this country. That's a sore spot that still festers

As you can see there are a few things that will set me off but mostly my view of history and politics is that the same buttheads who ran this country a hundred years ago are still running it today.

-> Nationality
American (descended from English and Lithuanian stock, among a number of other things)

-> Basic political tenants
Independent. I look at the candidates and try to vote for the one I think will do the best job. Generally slightly left of a centrist position on most issues, conservative on some others.

-> Religion (for our purposes, this will include atheism )
Evangelical for the most part, though I've attended plenty of different churches in my lifetime. Just ornery enough to break a rule now and then, though.

-> Major issues you believe in:
Pro-environment, pro-nationalized health care, pro-protection of workers (in that business and workers should be fair to each other--honest pay/benefits for honest work), workfare instead of welfare, pro-development of alternative fuel sources, pro-life (for the most part), pro-education (kids should be learning the basics in a good solid way instead of some of the stupid crap they have to be taught or evaluated for because of unfunded federal mandates), pro-affirmative action (if I could get fired in 2007 for being a woman and the boss wanted to bring in a man, obviously we've not come nearly as far as we should in stamping out discrimination based on gender, race, age, etc....), pro-just about any law that's going to put away child predators for a long, long time, anti-activist judges trying to make laws from the bench--that's for the legislative branch made up of people _I've elected_ to determine, not some appointee. There's plenty more, but that's a good start.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

-> Basic political tenants: I would call myself an independant

-> Religion (for our purposes, this will include atheism ): Strong Atheism, sometimes I'm borderline Anti-theist, but my whole family is Christian (*sarcasm* my family loved it when I came out about my atheism)

-> Major issues you believe in: I'm pro-choice, and I believe that as long as we exercise responsibility, compassion, and sense in our decisions, that we can achieve much. I'm pro-abortion, although I don't think it should be used as a form of birth control. I'm also a big supporter of the separation of church and state.

I've been to Morocco 4 times, I love it, its great :-) although its unfortunatly getting touristey now, and I prefer a 'genuine' expierance of what a country is like if that makes sense?

Anyways, on with the show;

Nationality;
Welsh (for you Americans... Britain is made up of several parts... England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) Do NOT call me English I *WILL* hit you!

Politics;
I'm Liberal... Bordering on shock horror communism (great theory, doomed to failure though), I think health care should be free for all, I think education should be free for all, I think really the state should provide an awful lot of stuff. Currently vote Liberal Democrats as thats as far mainstream to the left I can go in Britain atm, everything has centralised.

Religion;
Evangelical Charismatic Christian, I say this because I believe the Gospels to be true and that the word of God needs to be taken out, but I'm not a Conservative Christian, so would'nt like to be tarnished with that brush, and Charismatic as I find far too many Christians (especially those who say they are Evangelical) don't peform the most important thing (after Jesus) that the Bible teaches; Love thy neighbour.

Major things I believe in;
Jesus will come back! Therefore I need to tell you all about him ;-)
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but whatever is the truth is the truth regardless of what any of us think.
I believe health care should be free for all and that everyone in every country should have freedom of choice as to which religion they can follow.

Nationality:citizen of the u.s.-wish we still had our constitution---irish, norse, blackfoot, cherokee, some german and a tiny bit of french.

Basic political tenants:monarchist--no,really--as long as i am king--it's good to be the king--just ask cheney
my tenants depend on the topic-nothing i could say basic. a label or tag will not work on me. wish we still had our constitution.

religion--i subscribe to no religion of human creativity-i find truths in them all-and see how the similarities in them all far outway the differences. i can't wrap my mind around how anyone can think that their's is the one truth. the divine is not small enough for that.(like trying to perceive the galaxy through a crack in the door)
stop believing in ___--KNOW____

Major issues you believe in:equal rights--not this group's,or that group's---across the board, period-really, it's as basic as basic can get,
today, i'm thinking of lies we are fed about sept.11,2001.
lies scum have been caught in over and over, and yet so few seem to learn about or do some investigation into.(here anyway)
loose change

oh, yeah, did i mention i want my constitution back?

Politics... I don't have any political career in mind... I don't even vote...
I don't believe it makes any difference... I don't believe that democracy
really works... At least not in that scale... (As a form of goverment...)

Religion... Christian on paper maybe... But I don't believe that god made
humans or animals or this world or anything like that and I don't believe
there is any afterlife... But could there be somekind of god or god like
being(s) out there somewhere in this universe... Maybe...

Major issues... Abortions, Polulation control, Some plagues and wars and
such are needed... (This rock is way too densely populated) Support the
wise and strong and those who truly benefit the world and stop wasting
money and resources on helping those who are already doomed and who
only drain... Lots and lots of money to all kinds of scientific research...
Merciless criminal system... (Those who go to jail should be put to death

->American

-> Conservative, Liberal, Constitutionalist. In most social things I’m liberal. When it comes to financial aspects I’m more conservative.

-> I’m a Christian. I was raised in the Catholic, Church of Christ and Baptist church so I don’t believe in any of the Religious group. I only believe in my faith.

-> Government should protect our borders and our jobs, but it does neither. My belief is the main job of government is to protect the innocent and it does not do a very good job of that either.

Nationality: Syrian.

Basic political tenants: i hate politics, its all about hate, cunning, desires and eventually war.

Religion: Muslem.

Major issues I believe in:

-I believe that a person's religion is about his relation with his god(i mean by god, any supernatural power/idea you believe in). hence, its his/her relationship with me that matters. his/her ideas concerning others than me is not that important. free to think, free to believe.

-I believe in peace, none should do war, at any causes but survival and against inequity.

-Democracy is not the ultimate solution, it’s only a way to rule, it’s not perfectly good, and definitely not perfectly bad. Take it as simple as this, you cannot give all your patients one type of medicine, the medicine should vary according to the disease.

-Religion is the false reason for war, the reason politicians speak of to lead the mob angry, so do not believe them, religions do not command its believers to fight the other, it commands them to warship their god and live in peace with his creatures.

-according to my believes (Islam), we are all but the souls within us, henceforth, equal.

-science is only the other part of the truth, the first part is religion.

Politics: worrying about global warming, euthanasia spinning out of control, and fundamentalists taking over the world.

-> Nationality - Canadian. Father's Dutch, Mother's side is British.

-> Basic political tenants - I'm fairly liberal - I'm pro gay marriage, and I'm not completely against abortion. But there are also things, like divorce, that I'm extremely conservative about. If you're looking for an upper-case C or L answer, you won't really get one from me...

-> Religion - Non-denominational Christian attending Presbyterian worship.

-> Major issues you believe in - Anything I say here will just be flame bait for the American populace of the forums. No comment.

Let me see here...

-> Nationality: Australian, Aboriginal

-> Basic political tenants: Get rid of Howard for hell's sake, Bush too.

-> Religion: Atheist, although how far I am with this I am really not sure.

-> Major issues you believe in: There are no winners in conflict, if you are nice to people they are nice to you in return, rather than force people to act you let them make their own decisions, rather than force change you manipulate so they do so willingly, never ever ever let anyone see you bleed, rather than attack someone in the wrong provide them with enough rope to hang themselves.

Nationality: I'm a citizen of the world! If you insist on splitting hairs, I'm Malaysian, ethnic Chinese.

Basic Political Tenets: Like igyman, I don't have much faith in politicians. I have yet sense any sincerity from them in matters like wanting to improve the country, and the inane comments that some politicians make hardly helps. Contrary to what they think, most people do have a passable amount of reason.

Religion: Roman Catholic, but not always in agreement with the church's stand on things. And Christian is Christian anyway, why do they have to be so nitpicky?:/

Major Issues:
Climate change is obviously a major issue. It's getting hotter every year in the tropics.
Anti-war
Anti-abortion
I'm all for universal healthcare
Anti-smoking
Pro capital punishment for this person



The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

-Kuruntokai 234, translated by A.K. Ramanujan

Nationality: Proud citizen of the United States of America, specifically the Appalachian region of KY.

Political tenets: Libertarian, but I'll sometimes support a Paleoconservative.

Religion: None.

Major issues I believe in: Individual freedom, states' rights, federalism, seperation of church and state, non-interventionism, constitutional government, personal independence, egoism, national defense, abolition of the welfare state, fair taxation, capitalism. I also strongly support the right to own firearms, which I think is a cornerstone of modern democracy.

I could almost be called an objectivist, but I disagree with Rand on a few points. I think protective tariffs may be necessary in the near future to help rebuild American industry, and I think co-operation with those who follow different ideologies is necessary in politics, whether I give them a "sanction" or not.





Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein. -Friedrich Nietzsche, Jenseits von Gut und Böse

Basic political tenets: Uh, I dunno. Don't particularly care to define them. Politically apathetic covers it, I think.

Religion: Raised Roman Catholic, really more of an agnostic now. I'd like to believe there's some higher power, but I'm not so sure he's what Christians have made him out to be.

Major issues you believe in: Get our troops the hell out of the Middle East. That's basically it.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

Basic political tenants: I vote for whoever sucks the least.

Religion: I was raised to be some sort of Christian I think. Don't remember, don't care. Don't do religion.

Major issues you believe in: Get the old farts out of the government and let the young bloods take over. The current people are way out of touch with this century.

Also, let's get our troops out of Iraq. Let's stop "spreading freedom and democracy" or whatever he's calling it. Let's mind our own damn business. If Iran does anything stupid, just bomb the crap out of them, don't waste soldiers.

I'd like our country to not be in debt for trillions of dollars. How about alternative fuels? We should research new technology across the board.

Pretty much everything I think.

Basic political tenants: I suppose you could say I'm advocate of Anarcho-syndicalism, Libertarian socialism, and Social Democracy. I'm very mixed leftist. But I despise soviet communism.

Religion: Religion is a complex issue, they teach good things and bad, great things and hidious things, but I say we should always question everything, so that it wont become a religion.

Major issues you believe in:

I believe in the ideas of Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Adam Smith, Alexander von Humboldt, Bakunin and so forth. I don't entirely agree with any of them. I strongly advise you to read these people.

Nationality: "I am a citizen, not of Athens or Greece, but of the world" - Socrates.
...But I was born in the United States.

Basic political tenants: Democracy is dependent upon an educated and well-informed citizenry. Questioning authority is the ultimate exemplification of patriotism. People are fallible, therefore checks and balances are necessary. Change should be made cautiously, but never delayed or aborted in the name of maintaining the status quo. Extend presidential terms to 6 years and set term limit to 1.

Religion: None.

Major issues you believe in: Less television, more books. Promotion of social values that emphasize rationality and moral behavior. I think everything fits nicely under that umbrella.
