Just an interesting poll to see what kind of groups you'd most support and which groups would likely support you in return if you were ever a politician.

I feel like I'd be similar to a merge between Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown.

Where are the Native Americans/Hawaiians/Inuit/Aleutians (and, though they can't vote at home for President, I believe they can as U.S. Citizens if they're long-term residents in a State) Chamorros and Samoans?

I think everyone, save for felons who have yet to serve their time, should have an influence in politics. 

 

I find things like this poll however serves more to divide than unite.

I disagree with disqualifying felons, as a lot of those in prison are later exonerating when it's police and prosecutors were planting evidence to meet quotas to privatized "slaver prions" that are allowed to violate the 15th Amendment to save the State money, or sometimes such tactics are used to artificially "close a case" and give prosecutor's and police "prestige" by nailing a "likely suspect." Plus, the gross demographic malrepresentation in prison (because rich white boys get slaps on the wrist often for what poor men get the book thrown at them for) are sharp argument that disenfranchising felons is a purely political - tantamount to a form of gerrymander. Added to this is the fact that a very large number (probably a majority) of elected officials themselves who have already served at least one term in a significant position SHOULD be felons if there was any justice, given what so many of them get up to eagerly support with votes that have the power to make it tantamount to aiding and abetting (and funding) crimes.

I did not disqualify felons as a whole. I could have been more in depth with my answer sure, and some of your points I agree with. Generally speaking though I think a felon in prison should likely not be voting. Once the time is served or their ruling is overturned they should absolutely partake and be encouraged just like everyone else.

I would only support that when the justice system had been overhauled, discretion of judges regarding obviously on economic and racial differences abolished and monitored, privatized prisons abolished outright, and no equivalent ever being legal again, and political government figures had they're ridiculous "old-school nobles tried only by their peers before the House of Lords" - aka, the impeachment by House and trial by the Senate, where all due process and sense of justice are non-existent and most crimes, even high crimes, are not even seriously brought, removed as the undeserved and insulting immunity it is, and those officials be fully subject to standard justice (including war crimes tribunals) with no special snowflake protections.

Anthony has to fix that. But I don't know for sure if he can, or if ipbhost is required to do so.

Yeah, I'd also like to be able to ask more than 3 questions.

@vcczar wouldn't a fiscal liberal be someone with a right wing/reaganesque view of economics?

By a European perspective, for sure. By what I mean, and by what many Americans mean, is the contrast with fiscal conservatism (restricted spending), and so Fiscal Liberal becomes the philosophy of spending freely with the idea that the investment will be worth the cost down the road.

High tech, manufacturing, free trade, whiteys without a degree, and white nationalists

I've told you. You're not a Nationalist or a Patriot in truth. How can someone who belongs one of the demographics rotting, denigrating, and enstupidating their nation's potential, advancement, and image, a true embarrassment and sinkhole of everything their nation stands for and ever did, a true social "Fifth Column," and were a big support bae to elect the U.S. President who cares the least about his duties of office or the nation he is leader of, preferring his own reputation and ego as a much higher priority, and probably the biggest single consumer bloc of the very lowest point American culture and media (or the media and culture of the vast majority of nations, past and present) has EVER sunk to , and who constantly have to lie to themselves and others, and be lied to about the "sinking ship" status of their nation, call themselves Nationalists or Patriots.

Actually I'm not a white nationalist. I'm an off white nationalist. To hell with white people.

Either way, I think any REAL Nationalists of any sort would only use you as a decoy and distraction, at best.

Imagine not voting for either protectionism or free trade. Y'all hate protectionism even though it's a left wing policy because it's associated with Trump and you hate free trade just because it's right wing. Clown alert 🤡🤡

Would it shock you to know that I favour a balanced and thoughtful trade policy which measures individual trading partners and products individually? *gasp* Not blindly towing a cliched ideological line and actually thinking about affairs and policies! It's almost like committing blasphemy today.

No, you uneducated dunce talking out your ass again. Free trade is conducted in broad, sweeping strokes with little in the way of fine-tuned discretion and preferring to cut off or de-incentivize whole trade partners than levy more than a few significant trade taxes.

I certainly didn't call you an uneducated dunce. You are often stubborn and hidebound about certain key issues, but invariably much more educated, and more able and willing to use your brain, than @ThePotatoWalrus has shown to be.
