4 Politicians that Represent your Political Views.

Recommended Posts

Here's a new fun post. Pick 4 politicians that represent your political views. 

The rules:

1. Pick Only 4. 

2. They cannot be the same 4. 

3. One must represent your economic views. One must represent your social views. One must represent your foreign policy/military views. One must represent your values that are otherwise uncaptured in the other three spots. 

4. You may select politicians from the present, the past, from other countries, but please do not use fictional politicians.

So, not Adam Sutter, Emanuel Goldstein, Cornelius Snow, or anything, basically? Or were you more referring to those many movies and TV shows with fictional Presidents and other leaders in otherwise realistic stories (more or less)?

I don't know who those are. Are they fictional? Then don't use them. Were they historical politicians or are they current politicians in real-world earth, born of terrestrial human parents? Then you can use them?

Bill Weld captures my view that a politician must put country first, and he embodies my opinion that bipartisanship is more important than stubbornly sticking to an ideology. I am Left-Wing to Far-Left-Wing, but I also know that most Americans are one of many other views. As such, it is un-Democratic to force my views when the majority of the country could oppose them. My goal would be to encourage, convince, or otherwise win the public to my views to make them a majority.

The Norsefire Chancellor of the Fascist Britain in, "V for Vendetta," the dissident from, and critic within, the Inner Party who is the subject of the "Three Minutes of Hate," everyday on Oceanian broadcasts, in "1984," (and is almost a certainly an allusion to Leon Trotsky), and the President of the Pan-Am Federation in the, "Hunger Games," respectively. :P

Ron Paul is a good one for foreign/military (but NOT for economic or social). I've not heard of Bill Owens, but I don't know if you've heard of Silvio Gesell, so...

Former Colorado Governor I'm guessing is the particular Bill Owens he means.

I'm not that familiar with Colorado Governors. The only two who come to mind were the People's, or Populist Party on in the late 1800's (the same party that cross-endorsed Jennings Bryan's Democratic ticket in 1896 and 1900), and the one who later (after leaving office as Governor) joined Perot's Reform Party and was one of only four or five people to try to make a Primary challenge against Perot in 1996, and the only of those who didn't drop out immediately, and who later tried to sue Perot for rigging his Primaries). Even then, I'd have to look up their actual names, as they don't spring to mind, immediately.

For lack of finding the specific person (probably a bunch of people) I was looking for, I have edited my post in the Foreign/Military area. @vcczar

Only for foreign and military affairs. Certainly not social and economic. And, besides, how many "conservatives," today share his views in foreign and military affairs, I ask you? And I thought Goldwater was "Mr. Conservative." And he was also seriously considering nuking Hanoi, regardless of the bigger consequences. Hence, the "Daisy," attack ad by the Johnson campaign.

Goldwater for fundamental economic liberalism, Coolidge for his governing policy and stances of racial equality, Ron Paul because he's my daddy, and Churchill because he was a strong leader uwu

The flaw with Coolidge is that racial equality didn't penetrate, in his Administration, to the State level.
