    I don't want to create any discussions here, I'm just curious.

    Actually, discussions are nice as long as there are no death threats or some stupid shit like that, be civil.

    EDIT: Just realized this is my 666th post.

    Just wish there were more people like that. Kind of rare these days.

    Dividing the political situation into black and white views is stupid. This is the main reason why America underwhelms in the sense of a democracy - you have a choice only between 2 political views relative to their party, and any third is laughed upon.

    to be honest, it is best to not go too far into either side, as there tend to be more extremists. I am neutral as well.

    I'm socialist, but I have some views that would be considered "conservative" as well. So, kind of a mixed basket

    I am aware of that. I'm a right wing, not extreme, just a right wing.

    For me it's different depending on which country we're looking at.

    That's odd lol :P In Brazil we have communists that are going to vote for the right-wing christian candidate in 2018. Very weird.

    I think that there are a lot of ways to solve issues, and that BOTH a regulated form of capitalism AND a form of moderate socialism that encourages private enterprise are capable of producing a happy and productive society.

    I feel strongly about personal freedom, and I believe that human rights are essential to any functional/productive society.

    I like the Libertarian party in the US for their social ideas about freedom, but I don't like the laissez faire capitalist approach.
    I like some of what the Republicans say about fiscal conservatism, but that party is marred by its social proselytizing.
    The democrats aren't progressives, and I feel like they are honestly more centrists than anything at this point.

    My political compass test has me right in the middle, in the graphical representation, i was only a few pixels inside the right-wing libertarian box.

    Myself and my family are all highly skilled blue collar workers and our types tend to lean to the right a little bit, i guess.

    I dislike political correctness and PC culture with a passion though. If you try to tell me what i can and can't do/say, i'm going to tell you to fuck off in a very unpleasant way :)

    Well, Im against all sorts of discrimmination but I think we should not let everyone in our country. There are coming a lot of idiots who abuse our system and refuse to intigrate. We should help those who need our help, those who are escaping from war and are willing to intigrate. I dont care if someone who comes to us is muslim, jew or whatever, but I start to worry when they do not respect our culture and system, when they are unwilling to intigrate. I would consider myself neutral, but many People here (in Germany) would put me in the right wing , some would call me a Nazi for this opinion.

    I've noticed lol

    I guess what I don't understand is how "being polite" turned into "being Politically Correct"

    I'm neither. I would like to be a decent human being with my own thoughts and ideas. These ideas sometimes align with one side or the other and I'd like to keep them that way.

    Center right.
    But the Argentinian POV of center right would probably be considered left in the rest of the world.

    Definitely America, dunno about Europe though. Center for the EU is significantly further left than America's, anyway

    But also it is hard to compare American and other political parties since also in addition to the way that political issues are viewed, some issues are solely regional which makes it hard to compare.
