I consider myself to the left of the American Democratic Party and my ideal is the Social democrat model in Scandinavia. Despite this I follow the Conservative agenda in just one respect, I accept the need for a strong military or for strong military allies to protect the freedom that Scandinavia and other democratic countries have. I see this as an example that the Conservative agenda doesn't have to be accepted or rejected in total. Proxima Centauri (talk) 11:35, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

So if you're a conservative liberal, or a liberal conservative, in the US, who do you vote for? I don't see the two terms as being mutually exclusive. If, for example, you believe in minimal state interference in economics, but also believe in the concept of a welfare state, what're the options? From this side of the Pond, the heavy partisan politics of the US seems to alienate the moderate voter population. Or do you not have moderate voters? Is one half gun-totin', god-lovin', big government-hatin' SUV drivers and the other half tree-huggin', handout-wantin', gay-lovin' Prius drivers? Natman (talk) 11:51, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

I just vote for the lesser of the evils each election. ТyComplaints 12:57, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

"Perfectly sorted"[edit]

I think I was the one who originally wrote that the House of Representatives was perfectly sorted, and at one time that was (I think) true, but it's once again a bit more muddled. According to, there are about 20 representatives who make up a middle muddle. It's still a small group, but it does exist. Should we just remove that line entirely?

Interestingly, govtrack also has John Boehner as the most "liberal" Republican in the house. That's scary. [1] Researcher (talk) 01:34, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Libertarians supporting Trump?[edit]

Is there any support for this claim? I know a number who are pleased with what he's doing to the Republican Party, but I don't know any who are pleased with him. — Unsigned, by: (Talk) / talk / contribs

Well, there are people who classify themselves as libertarian that have expressed their support. The libertarian party is looking to put forward it's own candidate last I heard. As I understand most self expressed libertarians vote GOP anyways. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 21:51, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
The libertarian party of the USA always runs a canidate in presidential elections. I think Gary Johnson is their current candidate. He also ran in 2012. It was Bob Barr in 2008. Libertarians supporting Trump are mentally bankrupt idiots (or even more mentally bankrupt idiots than mostl libertarians). He's certainly the most authoritarian candidate on the Republican side, maybe on either side. Petey Plane (talk) 22:24, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
