Another poor soul that has fallen under the sway of the political compass religion.
What do you think liberal vs conservative is other than the x and y axis of the "political compass"?
But it is quite telling that you claim that basic facts are some sort of "religion" merely because you happen to disagree with the proper labeling of those with different political ideologies.
The political compass is two dimensional - a vast improvement over the one-dimensional left/right scale.
I think KG sees political viewpoints as multidimensional, and identifies based on where people are on specific important issues. The impression I have is in Europe, the political leaning of a person or a party is the leaning of the two most important issues, Liberal Democrat for example.
Think about the game, Europa Univeralis, for example. (I am thinking 2 specifically.) You get to shift sliders on several issues, like Decentralized / Centralized goverment, or Free People / Serfdom.
Rowan Atkinson or someone who doesn't have a last name that's also a popular first name.
I'm just glad I wasn't the only one who voted Center Right. But I almost was.
Also there's no "Not Hillary Clinton" option.
I'm pretty sure you all know I'm no socialist but would donate to Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders' campaigns before I voted for Hillary Clinton.
2-party political systems are why we have two middle fingers.
Unless the Republicans manage to shake off their public image of white, rich, bigoted, old men I think it'll be another leftist victory, perhaps a bit closer to the center depending on how Obama's approval rating shifts between now and then.
But I only use one of them!
This election is pretty much Hillary Clinton's for the taking.
HC likely will/would be even worse than W and Obama.
Well, for starters she looks scarier than both
Why not Michelle?
I would love to see a progressive candidate win (like E.Warren), but I don't fear Clinton as much as many others. Yes, she is a corporatist and will only bring status quo for a few more years, but that's still better than a crazy rightwinger.
But I'm mostly looking forward to GOP primaries. They're so entertaining
If you can get passed how frightening they are.
Only two terms allowed.
Obama's had too many people killed to be a hippie.
Don't blame Obama. Shape shifting reptilians take their place on day one.
Where is the "Downtown" option? Surely that would be the best choice.
Realistically, a centrist would probably result in the most stuff getting done. Too far on either side and you get political paralysis like you have for the past 6+ years. Although a centrist in most places would probably be center-left in the U.S.
Separate names with a comma.
