A Republican is somebody who thinks that the first, fourth, and eighth amendments are too dangerous to be followed in the modern world.

A Democrat is somebody who thinks that the second and tenth amendments are too dangerous to be followed in the modern world.

A Libertarian is somebody who thinks that oppression and stifling bureaucracy can only come from governments.

A Socialist is somebody who thinks that oppression and stifling bureaucracy can only come from corporations.

A Communist is somebody both who hasn't read the newspapers in nearly 20 years, and also who teaches humanities at a university.

A Green Party patron is somebody who is good at projecting their own individual wants and needs onto Ralph Nader.

An Independent is either a Republican or a Democrat, but one who doesn't want to admit it.

Every person thinks that everybody else should have the freedom to do what that first person might want to do, but that anything else is too dangerous of a freedom to be tolerated.

    Allow me to propose the Ideal System of Government.
    "Freedom" is defined as the improvement of me and people like me. An ideal form of government would promote "freedom", that is, the improvement of my life, and of those who are like me.
    Sadly, some people may get left behind under such a system. However, it's those people who freely choose not to be like me. It's their free choice, so there's not much we can do about that.

    I suppose if these are the only choices available, I would be a Democrat, although I support the 2nd amendment (with regulation), and I think the 10th amendment is just unnecessary, not actually dangerous.
