Depends what you mean:
There are many branches of philosophy and therefore many of us have various theories which we support.
My personal favorite is:
Negative Act Utilitarianism

Piagetian epistemology, rational egoism, Enlightenment political philosophy (tempered with a strong Machiavellian streak), Stoicism, Epicureanism, propositional logic. Nietzsche when I'm in a bad mood.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Isn't Epicureanism contrary to Stoicism?
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons.
I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason.
I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices, son.

I'm interested in these things, I don't necessarily adhere to all of them.

Pantheist- Objectivist- Rationalist

I know pantheism and objectivism are conflicting in some regards. I call myself an atheist, however, because I don't believe in an intelligent God. Yes, I believe universe is like the 'mind of God,' but I use the term much like Einstein did. Essentially, I live like an atheist because my pantheism has nothing to say about this realm, so I might as well just say I'm an atheist.

This. Philochristos's philosophy is the best.
