What are your political leanings and party affiliation?

I'm an Independent Moderate which means I don't care who I piss off.

No idea, though I'm sure someone will categorize me quickly.

As those who read my political posts may already have found out, I tend to the left wing of politics. Well, actually I'm even more left-wing than the German Social-Democrats :D

I'm curious. What exactly is a Social-Democrat? I'm kind of jealous that other countries seem to have a large number of parties while the US is stuck with two - Dumb and Dumber. I'll let you guys figure out which is which.

As Lewis Black says, the Democratic party is a party of no ideas, and the Republican party is a party of bad ideas.

How can you have an Independent Party? It reminds of the scene from "Life of Brian"

Brian: "You are all individuals!"
Crowd: (in unison) "We are all individuals!"
Small voice: "I'm not."

Well, of all the actual parties in Germany (and there are many) I tend to The Left, though there are some program subjects I'm discontent with.
I'm afraid I have to found a party for my own to see the subjects handled as I want them to be handled... :)
