Both are artificial systems of classification that try to push humans into one extreme group or the other, but fail because humans are not nearly homogeneous enough for that crap.

We need to change the voting system so third party candidates have a chance. The spoiler effect is killing our republic.

The only way I can see that happening is if people vote enough 3rd party candidates into Congress to get it passed. Otherwise, the left and right aren't going to pass a new voting system that would hurt them. Just like with term limits for Congress.

In short, we're fucked.

In most countries you vote for a party and they choose their leader. You really don't need to elect a president.

I was liberal until after college when I had to pay my own expenses and taxes on my stuff and saw people on welfare and food stamps driving better cars than me.

Probably leased cars and nothing, but negative numbers on their bank account.

You miss the point. Instead of spending the money they have on food, the government pays it for them allowing them to have a car lease and negative bank balance while not starving or going without shelter. Basically government subsidizing irresponsible behavior.

No joke. The other week I saw someone use their EBT card at the grocery checkout all the while hassling the checkout lady about the price of some of the food she was buying. Afterward, they went straight to the money counter to buy lottery tickets.

I hate seeing this stuff as well, but honestly, would you trade with her? That type of lifestyle can't be maintained forever, I'm willing to bet in her case someone was buying her that pointless designer crap. If it was a guy I'd bet he was doing illegal stuff. She'll get old, her value will drop and she'll just be another trashy ghetto rat with a shit life, shit personality, and shit to show for her existence. A guy, a criminal record he'll never shake with the same prospects as her. I support the welfare system as it is, those that think they are gaming the system never leave it and never have any level of success in their lives. As long as they keep them segregated in their shitty public housing communities I'm good. I'd rather 100 shitty people think they have it made living like that than 1 really struggling person not have the opportunity to pick themselves up using social programs.

I think a newly married couple should be able to celebrate their recent gun purchase by sitting in their grow room and sucking each other's dicks. I don't know which side that falls on, exactly.

Former libertarian here.

Bailed when I realized that it could only work as a subset of high IQ, English descendants, Christian society.

Now I'm either an ancap, monarchist, alt-rightist, or general curmudgeon depending on the phase of the moon.

I used to be quite Liberal until I witnessed first hand how intolerant the left is. Now a mix of quite a few viewpoints, I let the data answer most of my views now, you can have any ideology you like but at the end of day we are human and we are flawed creatures and sometimes the unpopular decisions/viewpoints are the best actionable ones (dependant on particular thing that is).

I was fairly liberal until Gamergate. Now I'm a cynic. The current iteration of the left is abhorrent as the right was back in the 80s with the religious Satanic Panic.

[–] Aboresh 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago  (edited ago)

^This right here. Gamergate helped me wake up, but what really redpilled me was when I broke up with my girlfriend at the time, did everything by the book, wasn't mean, didn't cheat on her, did everything right, and I still ended up the bad guy and lost all my supposed friends to her.

Also I stopped seeing myself as a victim and took control and responsibility for myself and my actions.

I used to be really liberal in the modern sense, but after soul searching I've realized I'm more of a classical liberal/libertarian. I love Western civilization and values and think they are superior to every other system out there.

Also same here. Gamergate red-pilled me hard. The lies, the narrative, the injustice, the bullying and most of all, the ruining of lives while simultaneously claiming victimhood. My fragile liberal mind couldn't handle it.

[–] rwbj 0 points 21 points (+21|-0) ago 

Yeah, I do have to say feminism is something that also confused me. I try to avoid judging a cause by the people it attracts, but I also considered myself very much a feminist in the notion of equality for women on all fronts. Then I saw what feminists were actually like and fighting for and realized it had very little to do with equality. An egalitarian now. Although in today's world perhaps even that needs some clarification. I support equality of opportunity. Equality of result is unrealistic.

The distinction I have made is causes like equality in the eyes of the law and not judging a book (or human as it were) by it's cover. Treat people the way you want to be treated type shit. First and second wave feminism were for the most part all about the things mentioned above. Third wave is where the feminists lose me with all of the identity politics and check your privelage shitlord dreck.

Exactly what I came here to say. I get burned a the stake every time I claim my anti-feminism. Ive seen the ways women are regarded in other countries frommy travels and women in America have very little to complain about. Of all the hard pressing problems in the world..... and they make their crusade about gender?? really? Maybe im just good looking but from my experience I think that women actually have it really easy in a lot of ways.

can you write here (or PM if you feel uncomforatble) about sociology?

I debated a feminist once and he came up with all kinds of weird meaningless terms about why science doesn't real

would be great if you could give me a background to work with

I always thought I was in the middle. In recent times I'd describe my position by website. Reddit says I'm an MRA, Gamergate, Neocon conspiracy tard. Voat says I'm a faggot cuck shilling for the left. My position is still pretty center.
