Would you rather live in a nation in which the government is dominated completely by the alt-right or the regressive left?

Damn this is a hard one either a bunch of racists or a bunch of crybabies haha just as hard as this election

@dietorangesoda Yeah, it is pretty difficult. I would choose the regressive left, to be honest, but I accidentally voted on alt-right. Although I think this election is more of two centrists pretending to be regressive leftists/alt-righters, but that doesn't change the fact that this election is horrible.

Kind of a biased poll, don't you think?

@Vox_Veritas How's it biased?

@Vox_Veritas - This poll is not biased! Oh, wait, of course you would think it's biased.

It portrays the "Alt-Right" in a relatively neutral light, while making fun of radical leftists. I am generally angered by bias because it's generally directed against people who believe what I believe in, but if I'm going to be consistent I must also call out bias whenever it's the other way around.

@Vox_Veritas Would you care to explain how it portrays the alt-right in a neutral way? If you're referring to the images, I just picked the first ones that I saw that looked cartoony and fun. And I can assure you, I don't like either of the options. I think both are horrible collectivists that don't accurately represent the right or the left, and they are extremists in their views and in their actions.

@Vix_Veritas Sorry, I misread your comment. If you really believe in what would be considered by most to be "regressive leftist" policies, then obviously, you could just vote "regressive left." But keep in mind, that means that this poll is also biased towards alt-righters, and as I said before, I'm not a big fan of either of them.

This is difficult. Sure far-right regimes have committed horrendous crimes in the past, but then so have far-left regimes. Makes no sense to assume that one will turn out better than the other. But as for this election, we have an alt right person running against a sane left person. Easy choice. I lean left myself, but if there's ever a left-wing extremist running against a sane right-wing person I'm voting for the right-wing person.

@Vox_Veritas Definitely.

Look up the true definitions of authoritarian, totalitarian Kama Marxist, communism, socialism, even facsism, and you will have described every single person who calls themselves a progressive liberal.

Hell just look at how bad they have wrecked this country in just the past 8 years. Look at how bad our entertainment industry is. Movies being made, and remade, to suit some race or feminist agenda just for the sake of political correctness. Liberalism is a cancer on society, period,dot!

An alt right government would be made of relatively intelligent and bloodthirsty people that would probably establish a totalitarian state. Leading a revolution to overthrow them wouldn't be quite easy. The regressive left on the other hand is absolutely idiotic, and they couldn't get any of their crap together. So overall, I would take an annoying crybaby government over the alt right.

OK what yahoo made up the term "ALT RIGHT" Nothing has changed, there are no new ideologies. There are no new view points. Everything that has been thought of with regard to politics and it failures has been tried and retried. What is this new supposed ideology called "ALT RIGHT" and how is it any different than anything else that doesn't already exist?
