I'm a left wing, liberal, progressive Democrat with strong hippie leanings.I consider the right wing to be influenced heavily by greedy corporate lobbyists and interests masquerading their propaganda to sound like freedom and patriotism. More like the freedom to rip off the American consumer.

I'm a leftist. Not a liberal. As anecdotes are to data, is individual analysis to class based

Well that depends on the issue relative to others.

I am registered as a democrat and always have been. I used to vote issues when there were more politicians in the middle. But both parties have changed in the last 20 years. I staunchly support issues that contribute to the social network. As an atheist, I belong to a humanist religious group called Ethical Culture that believes in allowing each person to find the best in themselves. They often need assistance to get started on that path.

My political leaning is "rational". Looking for evidence and logic in an issue is, in the end, the only thing that will work. Right now the liberals tend to have a big edge over conservatives. Unfortunately, too many liberals succumb to the loyalty position of their conservative counterparts and succumb to pure ideology.

I vote for the issues I support not the party. I don't see the value in the party system.

Very liberal. I wasn't always. I always considered myself an independent but then I gradually noticed that I was not leaning toward conservativism. I don't think I could ever vote Republican again in view of the Republicans I've seen since Nixon onward. My entire family votes conservative. So, in the interest of domestic tranquility, we don't discuss politics or religion as is generally recommended in polite society. I respect all people and their right to their own views and I expect that they will extend that same courtesy to me. If they don't, I generally leave the conversation choosing to pick my battles with respectful people. We may not agree but we can usually find intersecting points of mutual interest and build a relationship on those. I always try to be respectful and not attack a person for their ideas.

The republican party has changed drastically in my lifetime. I am now 87 years old. I identified as Republican in my younger years, Eisenhower era. If you google the republican platform of 1956, you will notice the drastic change. I am now independent, but register as republican, because in my state, Idaho, which is almost totally republican, you cannot vote for or against a republican candidate in the primary election, unless you are a registered republican. So I register as republican so I can vote against the most undesirable candidate.

The democrat party has also changed a lot. It's became very socialist, anti gun, pro heavy taxes and wants to regulate everything. Example Obama's clean power plan which was illegal as congress was bypassed.

I am strictly issue based. I am a registered Independent with no distinct Left, Right leanings.

I often wonder how apt left/right labels are anyway. Aren't they mostly used to tap into selected groups of voters as an election campaign tactic? How much do they really mean when it comes to policy? I remember reading that Reagan (promoter of 'star wars' ), actually cut defense spending, where as lefty Clinton increased it. Don't know how factual the information was, but there's probably plenty of other examples, of leaders who are labeled left or right, that have shaped policy according to factors other than their promoted ideology. I suspect that once you're in the job, other pressures can overwhelm partisan issues.

I dislike the labels simply because people join a team and want their team to win at all costs. This isn't football.
I does seem like the ultimate good is to get elected/re-elected. Comprise everything, but come out on top.

Saw Bernie Sanders last year. First time I ever when to a rally. Wish there was a younger person with his views that would run in 2020.

Liberal/progressive Democrat. Sure, I am more independent, but I want to vote in the primary. I didn't invent the two party system.

If a person doesn't have money and/or religion, why would they be Conservative?

Because really ignorant fucking sheep?
Because they have the fantasy that they are next to be wealthy. It is the great lie of capitalism. They are also convinced that their neighbor in need is the problem and not the wealthy who are raping them. https://imgur.com/gallery/C78RK9P

Look if we are talking general value of the mentioned side one must somewhat agree that both make valid points it is just that some make stronger points on different issues ( e.g. I definitely agree with the liberal view on health care in America and race relations in Germany but I also agree with the conservative view on the need of the homeless to get job ready and the need to review the general outlook on refugees internationally).

I live in Canada and voted for the Liberal Party, but don't identify as a Liberal because there are a few issues I disagree on.

I characterize myself as "middle-of-the-road" because I have views that would piss off, or be met with disagreement from both sides. But, as I am a 2nd generation Californian, my right of center views would probably be more leftist elsewhere. Who knows? I believe what I believe, and it's taken me 67 years to get here. That is not to say, however, that I am closeminded. I never think there's nothing new for me to learn.
