It's not discussed and I know it's a bit of a facade but I find Meyers Briggs typology informative and I think you'll see the "feelers" will cluster on the illiberal left

I'm intj
Also intj. My wife hates our arguments. "Emotions do not compute during a debate and are illogical" haha. I am almost always right logically, but am learning logic is not everything.

I am a Paleoconservative mixed with Crunchy Conservatism and Populism. I am an Independent.

Got problems with both the current parties.

A Bible thumping, gun toting, anti-corporatist, organic eating farmer has difficulty fitting exactly in either party...

(If you are suggesting that we should do away with all holidays, all events, all parades, then I owe you an apology, even if I disagree, but I don't think that's what you are saying.)
The one exception I made on the next page was memorial and veterans days. I would add July 4th (forgot about that one).

But all social, religious, etc holidays and "month long celebrations" I don't think they should take any sort of stance on.

If people want to organize for gay pride or any other issue the government exists to allow them to do that peacefully and free from interference (first amendment).

HAHA! Country-Boy-Gun-Toting-Libertarian-Christian-Conservative-Art major that works in the software world, seems to not fit the mold's either. Us INTx's need to start a third party.

INTP here. LOL

The problem with all this self disclosure is it in no way represents the area as a whole. These forums tend to attract a typical social-economic segment of the population which in general will mostly think alike, as this thread proves.

I don't know man.

So far we have
A Lifelong Democrat
A Demand Side Social Libertarian
A Yellow Dog Democrat
A PaleoConservative
A Country-Boy-Gun-Toting-Libertarian-Christian-Conservative-Art major
And an Independent



Pretty freaking diverse set of views there if you ask me. Given the Reddish-Purplish (in terms of POTUS voting) hue of the state and area, not sure it is that off.

Of the ones who have responded (the few).

Just browse similar threads, they all end up pretty much the same way.

I'm not saying it's bad, the mere fact most of us have internet access and enough time off to spend on a place like this sets us apart from the rest of the pack .

That is quite a combo of folks haha. The only stranger combo I've seen is when I attend Farm-To-Consumer-Legal-Defense-Fund events.

At those events you have Libertarians, Christians, Hippies and everything in between commingling and advocating for Raw Milk, Local Farms, and less regulations.

Sounds like you are hoping/wishing for something that simply isn't there friend.

The straw poll few who have chimed in pretty much exactly represent the state (and country) as a whole.

~25% Republican
~31% Democrat
~42% Independent

Or if you want to compare it to the state's last midterm election results, which had the highest turnout in 100 years, 50.4% R, 48.4 D, 1% Other.


ETA - But I do agree, even with the small sample size seeming to represent the broader population accurately, we here are not representative of the whole lot of us.

It's what makes us great....if we could only find the time and desire to do the thing which makes this whole thing work, compromise.
