    Tommy Nast invented those symbols, I think to emphasize both good and bad sides of each party. Like a lot of Nast's cartoons, they were so popular they ended up sticking. :O

    That is one thing I don't like. I consider myself to be mostly democratic except on a few issues (I'm pro-life), but I don't like the donkey symbol. I'd rather have an elephant represent my party. Heck, I'd rather have a giraffe represent my party. Although, it does remind of this one funny bumper sticker I saw recently, it said "Be a smart-ass and vote democrat" or something to that extent.

    To be honest, I refuse to register to vote with one party in particular. I dislike Republicans because of Bush and what McCain would have potentially done to the country, but there's a chance there could be a Bush-like democrat one of these days and I don't want to associate with someone like that either. Therefore, I choose to be politically neutral and vote for specifically what I agree with more.

    This is essentially my standpoint even though I registered democrat.
    No one should forget the possibility of ones side of the political spectrum warping into a horrible beast of cognitive dissonance and cowardly debating with a strong sense of persecution and no sense of self introspection.

    Laugh at the modern republican party if you want, but don't think it can't happen to the left. It sure as hell can.

    Because politics are boring ;)

    But seriously it's probably because when an issue comes up, people create their own thread for that issue

    I would classify myself as a liberal, but I hate to do it, as classification means division, and this country is already divided as fuck.
    I used to be all gung-ho when it came to politics, but then I grew up. Conservatives vs Liberals is all it is nowadays. No one can get tolerate the other long enough to get anything done.
    I mean, seriously, when you oppose the president just because he's of a different party, you aren't helping anyone.

    And now for some fine comments from the people of America (thanks to youtube):

    "Liberalism is the real threat to the USA. It needs to be put down like a rabid dog. These liberal whores need to be stopped at all costs. It's sad to think of all the men who died for this country just to have the liberal take over and destroy everything."

    "Wonder why Fox viewers are so stupid? Because they get their fill of ignorance from their ignorant racist t.v. shows ..They lie and retards believe them "

    So yeah, I've given up on this country.
    My old government teacher had similar views. She refused to call this country The United States of America. She would only ever refer to it as "The States" or as "America." She wouldn't even say "US." If the word United was in it anyway, she would not say it, because, according to her, "this country has not been this divided since the civil war."

    So yeah, that's my take on politics.

    "Liberal" in politics doesn't even mean what it's come to mean in the US.

    American Conservatives are extremely economically liberal for instance.

    I hate labels also, considering my views go from far right to far left.

    But o well. I hope they change California so independents can vote in the primaries again.

    I'm leftist (gay rights, abortion, assisted suicide, environmental, legalising plants). Though right wing on everything else (military, punishment, economical). Extreme anti-theist, pro-enlightenment and color-blind views on race.

    Pretty simple really. I just choose the best of everything
