Mid 20s.

Consider myself a progressive (I believe in progressing society).

I'm an independent, and think political parties should be abolished entirely.

I think the left/right political spectrum is bull**** and people should stop using it completely.

I also would like to say I lean a little towards the left on social issues and I will explain why. There was a time back in the 70's when I had to go on welfare after I left a very abusive marriage. Thank God welfare was there to help. I quickly found odd jobs to do until I landed a job w/ an Oil/PetroChemical Company in Compton, CA. Of course I got off welfare but also was fortunate to get Section 8 housing in Redondo Beach where I was living at the time with a roommate and my daughter. I will ALWAYS be grateful for Social Services.

Welfare was not meant to be used forever. It was a stepping stone until you got back on your feet. We have seen generation after generation be raised on Welfare. We have also seen it abused!
