NW-You would feel most at home in the Northwest region. You advocate a large degree of economic and personal freedom. Your neighbors include folks like Ayn Rand, Jesse Ventura, Milton Friedman, and Drew Carey, and may refer to themselves as "classical liberals," "libertarians," "market liberals," "old whigs," "objectivists," "propertarians," "agorists," or "anarcho-capitalist."

I'd personally consider myself a libertarian conservative, however usually if asked I'll simply state that I'm a libertarian to help reduce confusion.

Centerville-You would feel most at home in Centerville, which means that you are more or less pleased the status quo-you think the US government has just about the right amount of control over your economic and personal decisions. Your neighbors include democratic and republican party leaders and others who call themselves "moderates" and "centrists."

A true centralist treats all political bodies as having a left and right side - a left and right hand. The centralist is the brain for both. The exert control over the whole body..and that is a good thing.

My ideal idea of a politcal party is one of benevolent dictatorship...kind of a king thing. All these other systems have been tried and failed - might be interesting to go back to the old days - Most assume that the word King or Queen means abuser..not always so - we either crown Harper or Iggy and get it over with. King Harper - has a nice ring to it - King Ignatieff....ooooooooooooooooooh sounds sinister..but sort of saintly :rolleyes:

Whenever I hear the name 'Ignatieff' I recall the villian from numerous Flashman novels. Looks a bit like I imagined him, too.

Big G: Why are you still writing Flashman - is it for the money, is it because there are still more papers to discover, or is it an obligation to the reader?
George MacDonald Fraser: It's good fun. I suppose it's an obligation to the reader, it pays well, but chiefly because I like doing it. It's great fun researching it, it's great fun writing it...

Edited by BC_chick, 18 December 2008 - 10:47 PM.

I became a vegan the day I watched a video of a calf being born on a factory farm. The baby was dragged from his mother before he hit the ground. The helpless calf strained its head backwards to find his mother. The mother bolted after her son and exploded into a rage when the rancher slammed the gate on her. She wailed the saddest noise I’d ever heard an animal make, and then thrashed and dug into the ground, burying her face in the muddy placenta. I had no idea what was happening; respecting brain chemistry, animal instinct, or whatever. I just knew that this was deeply wrong. I just knew that such suffering could never be worth the taste of milk and veal. I empathized with the cow and the calf and, in doing, my life changed. James McWilliams.
