These are the 6 basic political groups. Conservatism, libertarianism, and anarchism are towards the right and believe that individuals can govern themselves but each believing it at a different level. To the left the groups believe with government controlling more for the betterment of society, crime and poverty can be lowered.

Biased Poll
Vox_Veritas says2015-03-29T16:35:27.0764453-05:00
By the way, do you honestly believe that you will be elected President in the 2048 election?
Futurepresident2048 says2015-03-29T16:36:28.0404637-05:00
It's not biased, watch this http://youtu.be/4FHqowXS4j4 it explains perfectly each political groups ideologies. If what's under liberalism not what you believe then you aren't liberal.

@Vox_Vertias Ill have to wait and see now won't I
Vox_Veritas says2015-03-29T16:49:45.4796114-05:00
Your explanation described Liberals as believing that "everyone needs to be dependent on Government". That's a tad biased.
Vox_Veritas says2015-03-29T16:50:33.5652235-05:00
Of course, you'll have to wait and see whether or not there still is a United States in 2048.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-03-29T16:50:50.8966013-05:00
Watch the video and see how it's not biased. Liberals believed the government is needed to be very interventionist in people's lives or people will do bad things.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-03-29T16:51:47.6954731-05:00
In turn that means people will end up becoming dependent on the government as it controls a lot.

Libertarianism isn't right wing, it's centric.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-03-29T20:16:39.6326513-05:00
@triangle.128k obviously you are misinformed, as are many. Libertarianism is right wing as the right refers to the individualist side and the left for the statist side. I am a libertarian so I know for sure.
Liberals says2015-03-29T20:48:07.4584702-05:00
Who voted for despotism!?
Liberals says2015-03-29T20:58:23.6318764-05:00
Statism is a very far right thing, socially.
Voidness says2015-03-29T23:43:22.6127987-05:00
That is one of the worst definitions of communism/socialism I have ever seen.
Futurepresident2048 says2015-03-30T07:31:19.3350950-05:00
Statism isn't a very far right thing, if you start to go farther right from conservatism you get to the point of no government cause the right wants less government.

How about none of the above? I'm independent.
Dilara says2015-03-30T17:33:53.9697248-05:00
Independent and moderate. I have both conservative and liberal views depending on the issue.

The left and right were developed around the time of the French revolution, the right supported the king and the traditional social hierarchy, while the left supported the creation of a republic.
