It's time to get some real discussion going here.

I'm not talking about parties or systems at all. I'm talking about your political philosophy. I was hoping that the options I used would work internationally, since they're pretty generic.

Well, it's kind of sketchy. I chose left-wing, because I generally favor government programs in general. For the most part, I'm fairly liberal on the social side. On the economic side of things, I'm still liberal, but less so. Also, I tend to waver politically on a lot of individual issues.

However, if I were to create a party, it'd be the Audit Party. I feel that there is currently a lot of waste in the bureaucracy, and every organization needs to be thoroughly looked over. We must make some cuts. I don't want to cut programs entirely, but some streamlining is necessary. Let's keep what works, and throw out what really doesn't.

Off the top of my head I can't remember what left or right wing is. In Australian politics I'm more of a Liberal guy, Labor party are a bunch of wankers it seems.

Ok, for those who are confused: Right Wing = extremely conservative; Left Wing = extremely liberal. Sorry if this was too vague for some people .

Heh, it's not your fault Met. Anyone who doesn't know the difference between right and left wings needed to learn it by now. You're a teacher. Good for you.

Can't you just tell this is part of Met's plan to take over the entire Lucasforums! He will lead an army of Revolutionary's into battle, after they have been brainwashed of course.


Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

This site tests you on your political views. After you have finished it calculates your political position. Its a little flawed but interesting all the same.

Yeah, I lean towards the left wing, and the compass got me right. I'm also ever-so slightly fascist too, but I'm working on that. Anarchism is just the mixture of boredom + money + lack of brains. I hate hippies.
