    Hi I am 26 years old and finally started to think about politics. When I was growing up politics never came up so I never got into it.

    Seeing that politics are in alot of conversation I have heard, I want to be in loop so I need some help deciding which house I belong, if any.

    well considering that hate is a very powerful word, no I dont hate any of them. I dont mind poor people because i am one, I think we should protect our environment but some people take it too serious, Mexicans???? really I dont care where you are from if you are here illeaglly then you should get kicked out. period. and with taxes i believe that everyone should be taxed based on their income, but i dont think the real rich that give to charities and other programs just to get the tax money back should get it back.

    Remain independent. Neither party deserves your support. However, you should learn as much as you can about the issues before you decide where you stand on it. The left will scream about one thing, the right about another. Get FACTS - and that is not as easy as you think because both sides present their own version of the 'facts'. It's hard to find the truth - which is usually not told by any politician - whether they are left or right. Also, never ever ever use a media source as 'fact'.

    Welcome. Have fun.

    Read "Atlas Shrugged" cover to cover. When you have finished you will know which end of the political spectrum you lean toward.

    Issues mean nothing. Two people can arrive at the same conclusion for completely different reasons. Where you are politically reflects a method of thinking, not a set of conclusions.

    Asking others to define your political views is like asking others to choose a good shoe size for you.

    I dont know if its possible or not, but i believe that this country needs to be ran like a country and not a business. by that i mean not worry so much about making a profit.

    And why in gods name soes the president have to make so much money? I understand its a big postions but I think teachers have a bigger role in our development than the president and they get paid crappy wages.
