I'll tell you later this week. Unfortunately, I am too busy to elaborate on this right now.

Additionally I have to say, that I view Nationalism more like Patriotism with a lot of flag waving and so on. I hate the ideology when it comes to refusing cooperation with other nations or encouraging not to learn foreign languages or about other cultures because "our culture is so much better than others".

I generally have a favorable view of most political ideologies and accept that there are pros and cons to most all. In general, as long as it is an ideology that embraces democracy with competitive elections and is representative of the people, I consider it one worthy of discussion.

If only my favorable ideologies existed, then the worst of them would come out, and end up doing bad things. It is always good to have people you do not disagree with in office alongside whom you like, because it helps drive things to be moderated and more transparent.

I personnaly agree with our current Liberal democracy made of the principles of both Montesquieu and John Locke.

I fear the risks of direct democracy because there are liberties which are constitutionnal and which can not depend of a majority's will.

That's why I do not have a lot of issues with the representative system, but I stand for maintaining a strong Court system.

This said, I think we should do more to bring more democracy to our current system.

Politically I tend to believe that the best political evolution is a compromise. If the state has to exist in order to ensure a stability, then the state has to defend social liberties and find a good compromise about taxations.

The goal of the state should be to help everyone to get emancipated from their background, that includes for me a free initial education, but not forcely every others universal services. These services have to depend of a large consensus among taxpayers.

But for civil liberties there is no discussion, they belong to the individuals and their private life, so the state has no right to put an eye on these.

 

And about a kind of regime, just to say, it does not change a lot of things.

For those who did not know here is the storyline of the french revolution and after, the country tried *a LOT* of regimes in a really short period of time :

-Absolute monarchy untill June-august 1789

-Constitutionnal monarchy untill September 1792

-Progressive and quite liberal Republic untill June 1793

-Socialist dictatorship close to modern totalitarianism untill august 1794

-Free market liberal but corrupt Republic untill december 1799

-Autoritarian Empire (not absolute) untill  1814 (I spare you the consulate of 1799-1804)

-Constitutionnal monarchy untill march 1815

-Constitutionnal Empire untill July 1815 (hello the 100 days and Waterloo)

-Constitutionnal monarchy untill 1848 but more liberal when Louis Philippe takes power after a revolution in 1830

-A 2nd Republic untill 1952

-A second Empire 1st authoritarian untill 1867 then liberal Empire.

-A 3rd pro liberty Republic untill 1940

-A 4th socialist and very democratic republic untill 1958

-A 5th quite pro executive and interventionnist Republic as of today.

 

The political system while passing from a regime to another during all these periods, has constantly evolved toward a bicameral parliamentarian system.

I will never understand those who have  positive view of libertarianism and neoconservatism at the same time. Those ideologies conflict on so many levels that they are nowhere near compatible (even if both fall under the right wing umbrella of the modern left-right spectrum).

A Multi-Party system in the country where the mainstream thought is contained within the ideologies I selected:

The Conservative Party (25%): These are your Neocons and your One-Nation conservatives. They tend to be moderate to conservative on immigration and are by far the most hawkish on defense. They are Pro-Life pretty uniformly and have a smattering of beliefs on other social issues. They are very economically conservative but fiscally moderate. They are drug hawks. (Think Margaret Thatcher, Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley, Francois Fillon, Mitt Romney, Stephen Harper)

The Liberty Party (45%): These are Right-Libertarians, Conservatarians, the USLP. They are anti-war, radically pro-liberty, and the large majority are also pro-life. They break with the Conservatives on issues like defense, immigration, and drugs. They are also a lot more fiscally conservatives, the budget hawks reside here. They are even more economically right wing than the Conservatives however. (Think Justin Amash, Rand Paul, Maxime Bernier, Ted Cruz when he was cool, Mike Lee, Leslyn Lewis)

The Moderate Party (20%): The Moderate Party is a Center-Right to Center Party that is in favor of economic liberalism but is also socially liberal. They are similar to other market-based European Conservative parties. Think Angela Merkel's CDU here. They are a capitalism with restriction kind of crowd and largely embody classical liberalism though are not as socially libertarian as the Liberty Party. Most Left-Libertarians are either here or in the next party. (Angela Merkel, Susan Collins, the Clintons [Pre-Bernie days], Larry Hogan, Erin O'Toole, Emmanuel Macron, Theresa May)

The Liberal Green Party (10%): The LGP is not truly leftist by any global definition. It is more liberal than the Moderates and less classically so. It is the farthest left party among the major 4. It is largely in favor of Social Democracy but, as the name suggests, largely also exists to pull the national conversation towards environmentalism, resulted in greener politics from the 3 other parties (The Conservatives often being the hold out). They largely exist as opposition in Parliament to debate from a "Devil's Advocate" point of view the bills debated by the Conservatives, Libertarians, and Moderates. (Barack Obama, Ed Milliband, Mark Warner, Joe Biden [Present Day], Pete Buttigieg)

Pre-deciding all the parties even allowed to run and be on the ballot, or even registered, in totality by your own choice of "tolerable," ideologies? Nursultan Nazarbeyev or Paul Kagame, is that you?

Did you read question number 3? 

Care to tell us what your country would be like if only your preferred ideologies existed in your country's legislature?”

A majority coalition of libertarians and neoconservatives with a slight nationalist influence on policy (opposing globalism, resisting ideological influences of outside forces but not economic nationalism or war-hungry nationalism). Society is based upon individual rights and the government is extremely limited in scope to protect against potential rights violations from other people. A pretty much totally free market guides the country's economy without undue government influence, and people are able to experiment with whatever form of economy they would like (people can barter, exchange goods and services, agree to communal ownership, etc.). The form of government could be a democratic republic, constitutional monarchy, or even a constitutional aristocracy. As long as the government doesn't infringe on people's rights, form doesn't really matter. These 3 just have the most checks on potential abuse of power. Right populism revolves around protecting individual rights and might be the vehicle to achieving such as society (think Ron Paul Revolution on steroids).
