    One that fights unemployment, poverty, illegal immigration and poor health care, instead of foreign wars, and includes a world class, FREE educational system for our children and government funded spay/neuter programs to reduce the 6-9 million unwanted pets euthanized annually overpopulation issue we have.

    This is from the standpoint of a mover watching the poor outloock on her children's future, sees the Fundraisers her children are suppose to help do to pay for their own education; and from the view of a animal rescuer that watches overwhelming tragedy every single day!

    I want the political ideology that prevents the humanitarian from becoming the tyrant.

    Throughout all of history, the greatest atrocities have occurred by those claiming to know what is best for humanity: Marx, Mao and the rest wanted socialism; Roosevelt wanted bigger government; environmentalists claim to know what's best for everyone; the Conquistadors wanted to help the natives; etc.

    Beware the humanitarian with the guillotine: they merely wish to become your leader.

    What's the solution? Freedom. And the knowledge that freedom is the best way to give the people what they want and need.

    Libertarian / anarcho-Libertarian political beliefs fall under these restrictions. Few others do.

    Thank you for briefly answering your questions.

    Political party is like a football team, opposition is like a team that is a 1 game victory behind. There's a lot of uncertainty in politics, lots of lies and other things that people don't see. Huge structures behinds politics. In some countries, politicians can only have a certain affect on the country which is ruled by the unseen "power".

    I find myself most easily fitting into the libertarian ideology, with lots of existentialism. smile

    It is my desire to see an ideology develop that does not claim to have all the answers, but instead is interested in identifying the problems, setting priorities and working with others to find solutions, hoping that the others we are working with are equally concerned about solving the problems instead of advancing its own political or social agendas.

    Political parties are a reality. They are not going to go away. People of similar opinions will come together to advance their agenda. However, it does seem possible that the political parties could recognize the problems facing our country, prioritize them, bend a little, not worry about who gets the biggest office or wins the next election or worry about offending potential campaign contributors and instead the needs of the people first. I know this sounds idealistic, especially from someone who is a former newspaper reporter and was a PR representative for a major industry, that had its own agenda.

    The solution is for our political leaders is to learn the art of political compromise--and it is an art. Elected officials must stop concentrating on the next election and bringing money home to their district or state, but instead look for the common need.

    It will not be easy, but it can be done. Our country pulled together in time of War, back in the first two world wars--you know the wars to end all wars. We as a people must demand that our political leaders address priorities, simplify our system of government and as the preamble to the Constitution of the United States notes among other things, "promote the general welfare and provide for the common defense."

    This is a great question. I am personally searching for the party that I believe holds the same standards and principles as I do, but I am having a hard time committing to one or the other. Right now, I have identified myself as a Libertarian. Freedom and liberty to and of the individual. I tend to also lean to the right, but lately I'm finding inconsistencies there as well.

    I don't love Ideologies. I think we are all humans, and all of us know what is best for our lives. Why don't we only help each other to be better? If we all do so, our life will be absolutely perfect. You can call this my Ideology.
