Personally I'm pretty conservative, quite frankly Hillary getting accused of murder and stuff is really what solidified my stance. Trump is bad, yeah. But he's the better of two evils.

Neither. I personally think both parties need to disappear and the system needs reworked. Between the obviously flawed voting system (Popular Vote VS Electoral) and how everyone is seemingly out to get those of the opposite party. I don't like it.

If I had to identify with a party, it would be the Libertarian Party, but I still think some of their ideas are a little crazy. For instance, privatized schools and views leaning towards complete anarcho-capitalism.

I consider myself an independent, not willing to be associated with either party. That being said, I tend to have somewhat liberal leanings.

The Greens or the Libertarians, perhaps? I personally don't like Hillary because of her stance on video game violence and government censorship. It's just one of many positions that I feel are either (1) genuine social conservative beliefs I don't agree with and/or (2) pandering to social conservatives* which I view as wrong (and a major reason why Senator McCain lost the Presidential election). People wanted a maverick in office and they got one, but they didn't get at all morally centered one. Without that, only chasing money, all you are is a puppet of the winds.

* Just to be clear, I think pandering to social progressives is also wrong. It's not the place of government to be trying to play God and shape the American people. That's precisely the opposite role of government. That government is so often lead by corrupt individuals where people literally question if they've murdered people only highlights the insanity of having government or government officials as role models.

I'd vote for the least stupid party ideology honestly.
I'm just happy I'm not living in the USA, where the most recent elections made people vote for bad or worse, and no one knew which was the worst of them 2.

This thread is NOT going to last very long. I can't count the amount of threads like this I've seen over the past 11 years. I'm blind

The Greens or the Libertarians, perhaps?
What is really strange about that is that those are two completely different political idealogies. The US green party platform is more or less democratic socialism, where Libertarianism is pretty much on the other side of the spectrum.


To get to the OT, I had identified myself more or less as a socialist for the past 8 or so years, before that I identified with the libertarian party for a year or so in high school, and before that my views were pretty progressive. I recently took a few political tests (ie the ones that map you on the grid or whatever) and got a few that said anarchosocialism and one that anarchocommunism and I'm looking into those theories. I'm a registered dem, but I strongly dislike most liberals (ie Hillary). I was registered green until 2016 so I could vote in the primaries.

The system, as said many times, is broken and really needs to be fixed

I know. That's the thing, though. I don't think anyone has all the answers and knows everything. But at least so far, the Greens and Libertarians have been respectable debaters on issues. Perhaps--probably--that'd change if they were to obtain actual power, but I think we'd be better to have those two groups actually discussing issues and potential solutions rather than "blues rule, greens drool" and "greens rock, blues suck".

Im a Democrat person who favors the policies of democrats. I don't love Democrat politicians, I just happen to agree with their ideas. I don't love Hillary, wouldve preferred other Democratic candidates but I don't think she's a murderer and I think the choice is clear when every single one of our allied countries preferred her.

As another sidenote, it's not like Republicans don't have their fair share of flawed characters either. Roy Moore literally raped teenage girls, and didn't face any consequence from his party.

As a third sidenote, I was super mad after the Presidential election, but I don't hate Trump supporters, I just disagree with them.

    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
