Which political party do you support?

Obviously there are way too many options worldwide for a poll, so just post below.

Along with the name of the party, also put down what you believe their 3 guiding principles are.


My answer: UK Labour Party

Main Principles:
-Large state economics
-Anti-austerity
-Foreign Policy stance: Non-intervention

Re: Which political party do you support?

This last statement is unfortunately not true for the UK Labour Party. See under tool Tony Blair. He was a war mongering intervencionist and did lots of bad and evil things with his atrocious foreign politics.


Anyway, I generally support left of centre parties with the same principles. In Canada, the closest party to this is NDP.

UK Labour's changed its official ideoloogy a lot under Corbyn, although Blair's disciples are still less than convinced, but I decided to go with the party line in the description

Re: Which political party do you support?

I plan to move house soon, to a constituency where my vote will be irrelevant (the Conservative Party will easily win, alas). Nonetheless, I will most likely vote for Labour if their candidate is more like Corbyn than Blair. If not, the Green Party might suffice.

Re: Which political party do you support?

I voted Labour at the last election so I guess I'd have to say them, although I'm sceptical of all political parties and I wouldn't 100% vote for Labour next time. I'm in favour of more direct democracy. I'd say Labour's main 3 principles are:

1. Equality of opportunity
2. Welfare statism
3. Internationalism

Re: Which political party do you support?

I'm firmly on the left. I wouldn't say I support any political party in particular. Pirate party seems cool in many aspects.

Re: Which political party do you support?

According to ISideWith, I'm a Liberal Democrat. Who would have thought? That said, Labour are a shambles currently and the Conservatives always rub me up the wrong way, so that makes sense. I did vote for the SNP in the last election, but I didn't really give much thought to it Since my interest in politics is growing pretty considerably and will continue to do so, perhaps when I get a better understanding of everything (Economics especially), I'll know who I agree with with definite certainty. I am only 21 after all. Beliefs take time to grow.

Don't waste your vote on those dbags from Green party please. Vote NDP.
The purpose of Green Party in Canada is just to split the votes on the left and help Conservatives.

Re: Which political party do you support?

Aus Labor usually, but am swinging and can vote different ways at State and Federal levels.
Local area is very safe Labor, so often vote not that significant.
Prefer Democrats for the US.

Re: Which political party do you support?

Liberal Democrats (UK)

To the left of the party, fan of liberalism, Devolution and decentralisation, Proportional representation, internationalism, redistributive tax system, civil liberties, freedom of choice.

Voted Labour in 2015 but that was more because my local MP (Lib Dem) sucked and the Labour candidate was much better. Not particularly partisan. Dislike the Tories.

Socialism appeals to me more than capitism but reality is neither really works effectively.

Re: Which political party do you support?

I used to support the far left side of the spectrum. That, until I learned economics. Now, classical liberal would be the best term. Freedom in pretty much every aspect of life. That includes economic freedom (other liberties cannot subsist without a free-ish market, think about it, a lot of empirical-historical evidence).
