    Political stance?

    left or right?

    any extremists? (hope not)

    neutral?

    where do you stand on political matters? what is your allignment?

    myself im quite neutral really, maybe leaning slightly to the left.

    I'm on the left, parties on the left overall suit my views better than those on the right. Having said that, Labour's budget this year didn't impress me very much. But there's no way I'd vote National, I hate their policies.

    I'm a lefty. Not quite a raging commie since I'm not quite anti-capitalist and fall more in line with pro-growth leftist economic theorists like Paul Krugman than Noam Chomsky, but I'm a member of the ALP, support democratic capitalism with a healthy public sector and government control of vital services, and don't think much of the Liberals as a whole.

    Socially very liberal indeed.

    For most of my life I've been a floater, taking bits and pieces of everything to make my own views. In the main I am an environmentalist, but some of the Greens' policies are just ridiculous, and while I hate John Howard and most of the liberal members, I don't mind some of their policies, but I would much prefer a Labor Governement.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Very left wing, liberal, whatever you want to call it..

    Strongly anti-war, in the vast majority of circumstances, pro-choice, anti-death penalty etc. etc.

    Economically quite left (I'm actually a card-carrying trades unionist) & socially liberal. As long as it's between consenting adults & doesn't infringe on anyone else's prima facie rights, then it's ok in my book.

    Interestingly (or perhaps not) I do lose lefty points by being a fan of the rope, but there's already a thread where I've outlined my reasons at quite painful length!

    Left, not left wing/liberal but probably not too far off.
