Well shoot, paint me a left/leftie.
And there I was, thinking I was more of a rightwing type of person. Then again, a lot of questions had me go "I don't care", "not my problem", "why are you even asking about that, eh?" so maybe that skewed the results a bit, as I couldn't answer "mu" or "meh".
Some of these things just aren't interesting to me. Moreover, plenty of things people get hung up about in my view aren't rightly things the government needs to meddle in. In other questions, the implied dichotomy just doesn't exist for me. Like how I'd like not so much a small government, but the smallest that can efficiently do what we want it to do. That leaves open the question: Just what do we want our government to do? Mostly leave the population to mind their own business, but sometimes a government is mighty handy to step in.
The american system hinges on the government being mostly inefficient as protection against abuse. That is no longer tenable. So we'll have to find better, more efficient ways of keeping the government in check and preventing it from slowly growing, eventually and inevitably growing out of control. Hello scads and scads of TLAgencies.
Personally I'd really prefer a government that knows very well what it is there to do and also what it is not there to do, and does what it should do efficiently, with suitable and functional checks and balances built right in.
This clashes rather violently with what various political movements want, which most of the time turns out to be to make the machinery uniquely benefit them or theirs. To me, the government is there for everyone, and competition or even head-on clashes of crackpot philosophies is not the best grease for administrative machinery.
