Look at my big issues. What Political Ideology would you say I am? I've been trying to classify myself for quite awhile. Used to be Conservative Republican, now I haven't a clue. I'm against abortion due to religious beliefs. Dont derail this thread till I get a good answer or I will RAM A FREAK'N PEN IN YOUR PENIS!

I'd say moderate on social issues.

No Abortion.
Government should not be involved in Gay marriage.
Yes to Prostitution.
Yes to legalize drugs.

the issue of abortion is actually debatable among libertarians.

In terms of government involvement in gay marriage, do you mean no to gay marriage or no to government in marriage in general.

Gays can get married, Straights can get married. Government should of had no involvement in marriage or the definition of marriage.

Ron Paul Republican. Which would make you Libertarian, but more conservative on social issues. Ron Paul is not as vigorous against the wall between church and state, and is somewhat Nativist, and is pro-life. So libertarian with economics, libertarian/conservative on social issues, though leaning libertarian.

Even though Walter Bloc is an economists, I like his stance on abortion. You have the right to evict a child from your body as long as it can still live. With new technology they can make the baby live sooner each year.

But other than that, a ton of people tell me libertarian means being Pro Choice.

Even if, that would imply that the fetus is a human and the argument just starts again from tile 1.

Policy of the state

If you advocate strength through unity than you are a collectivist
If you advocate individual liberty than you are an individualist
If you advocate maintaining the status quo than you are right wing
If you advocate government or societal reform than you are left wing

Left Wing Collectivists are Socialists and Populists. Socialists are more collectivist and populists are more left wing.
Right Wing Collectivists are Nationalists and Traditional Conservatives. Nationalists are more collectivists, and Traditional Conservatives are more right wing.

Left Wing individualists are Anarchists, and Social Liberals. Anarchists are more individualist, and Social Liberals are more left wing.
Right Wing individualists are Classic Liberals, and Liberal Conservatives. Classic Liberals are more individualist, and Liberal Conservatives are more right wing.

Classic Liberalism + Anarchism = Libertarianism.
Nationalism + Socialism = Fascism
Traditional Conservatism + Liberal Conservatism = Conservatism
Populism + Social Liberalism = Progressivism

Republicans believe in popular sovereignty, and rule of law.
Democrats believe in popular sovereignty , and majority rule.

Democrats believe in eliminating the electoral college, expanding suffrage, and eliminating appointed offices. They may also believe in decreasing the authority of the legislature in favor of direct votes, however some democrats may favor a representative democracy. Democrats tend to believe in a loose constitution.

Republicans believe in the importance of checks and balances, and believe that everyone, even politicians, should be subject to the law. Republicans favor the electoral college, and believe in intersecting spheres of representation. (such as senators representing states, the house of reps representing the people, and the president representing the federation) Republicans tend to believe in a strict constitution.

Republicans tend to be pro-legislature, whereas Democrats tend to be anti-legislature. The reason being is that Republicans favor rule of law, the legislature being the creator of law. Hence republicans tend to favor congressional supremacy. Democrats tend to be again congress passing laws restraining government, and they tend to be in favor of more direct votes on legislation (or at the very least they want to give the people more of a voice in legislation). Democrats tend to be in favor of the executive and judicial branches over the legislature, because they are anti-legislature.

You are a libertarian. Libertarians do not require 100% adherence to doctrine, although they are more strict than, say, Catholics. Conservatives are sill less strict, and tend to consider libertarians to be conservative, though libertarians tend to be upset at the insinuation of lack of ideological purity.

You are also sexist, failing to acknowledge the contribution of women to the site.

One does not need an ideology to have views. Doing so serves nothing other than limiting your vision for the joy of having a team to root for.

Someone explain to me why particular ideologies define your total ideology? You don't need to fit into an ideology, nor does stating your political stances fit you anywhere. You could believe in fascist policies on liberal principles and you'd be a liberal. You could believe in totalitarian governments on anarchist principles and be an anarchist (though I don't see how...)
