I generally lean much more left than right (although I used to be a hardcore right winger in my teens).

I am pro life, though (and that means I value all life, including people often overlooked by "pro life" Republicans/conservatives).

i believe in sending taxpayer-funded gay marxist feminist stormtroopers around to people's houses to confiscate their guns, bibles and christmas trees.

I'm pretty sure they're all *******s. If communism didn't always go tits up I'd probably go for it.

The whole left/right thing is far too simplistic, lets take economics for example. Right now I would be left leaning because I've no money, but if somehow I became a millionaire I would cease to be fiscally liberal and would become fiscally conservative. This is because my personal well being is more important to me than political ideals.

I guess you could say I'm libertarian leaning, but far from being idealistic. I'm cynical, a little bit selfish and very apathetic.

My political view is that politics is a bunch of BS. However, I do like to comment on politics simply because I find the BS so fascinating.

Yes, I contradict myself very often.

Far right economically, as close to laissez-faire capitalism as possible. Anti-corporatism, anti-socialism, anti-welfare state.

Moderate socially--I don't like to use the term "left" when describing my social views, because the left has been rather authoritarian with certain social issues (e.g., censorship, gun rights, "animal rights," etc.)

If I were dictator, I would:

Legalize gay marriage.

Legalize prostitution.

Decriminalize the possession (not trafficking) of all drugs and completely legalize some of the more innocuous ones (marijuana, LSD, ecstasy, mushrooms).

Make taxes more progressive and tax the rich much, much more.

Put the end to factory farming and the end to meat eating for the most part.

Make a permit necessary in order to breed cats and dogs. If a person does not have a permit but has a pet which is not neutered, give them a fine of several thousand dollars.

Create a universal health-care system.

Make abortions and birth control completely free. (I'm still toying with idea of a one-child policy.)

Make euthanasia or assisted suicide legal, such as in Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Decrease immigration greatly.

Decrease the military budget by 80% and take all of the troops out of the middle-east.

Make the possession of guns illegal.

Put an end to the death penalty. Let out everyone who is in prison currently for drug possession. Decrease prison sentences for non-violent crimes.

Eliminate the current farm subsidies and create new ones for healthy fruit and vegetables.

Tax gasoline much more and use that money to create new subway systems in the larger cities of the country.

Lean to the left, but not so far that I might fall over.

With most social policy I'm very liberal but with other things, such as economics, I'm more conservative. I think it's pretty foolish to put yourself in a box completely and say "I'm socialist" or "I'm conservative" or what have you. They all have their own benefits. What would be far more useful is to find ways to implement the best parts of each.
