From a few observations of people's political leanings (Facebook ftw), it seems that, for the most part, this place is filled with liberals. What are your own political beliefs? What label do you apply to yourself, if any?

I believe in theocracy and that I am the God they worship.

From here:

"You want government out of people's personal lives, but you appear to desire some continued government control over people's economic activities. There is no political party that represents your views. You need a mix of Democratic, Libertarian and possibly Green politicians in office... The Green Party probably runs the most candidates with your views, but the overall Green Party platform is much more socialistic than you are."

I'm also like DeckardCain, a mix of Democrat with Green Party.

Despite being from the Shenandoah Valley (most Republican region of the state) and living in Northern Virginia, I have managed to emerge as having political views more resembling your average Rust Belt Democrat than anything normally found in Virginia. Accordingly, I am a union shop steward.
