No party affiliation. I tend to vote Labor for the house of reps and some minor party I like for the senate, both for state and federal.

My political affiliation is somewhere around the "i don't give a fuck" spectrum.

I just vote Sex Party and Greens. I really just dont care

Finnish Center party.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:

Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Left. Way left. According to the political compass we did on the old boards, I'm the most left leaning of all the members there, and consequenly, here.

Upper center/left.
I voted liberal in the last federal election because the candidate was good.

Just left of centre with a strong liberal bias.  Please read 'liberal' in its original sense - not in the alterered sense that has gained currency in the US.  Living abroad, and there being no postal vote, I cannot cast my ballot any more.  However, when I could, I voted strategically, using my country's system of proportional representation to get best effect from my vote.

American citizens can still vote abroad! You need to fill out all the forms you normally would as an absentee voter, plus an additional federal form (http://www.fvap.gov/).

Unless you renounce your United States citizenship, you are always a citizen of the United States of America and the state in which you reside (whichever state hosts your legal American residence).

Registered Independent but I'm probably going to switch over to the Green Party. I like their style :)

Registered Independent, have so far voted Democrat every election because the Republicans seem bent on one-upping each other for title of "most evil/ass-backward dipshit ever".

I vote for the one that makes the most sense regardless of what party it is

I do that too. Pity all the sanity's on one side lately.

Very. I'd like to see more choices than 1
I'd also like to have a choice between the lesser of two evils.

Sorry I saw you referencing the US's conception of "liberal" and didn't read your last sentence.

Moderate liberal here. I usually vote Green Party, but I'm not registered as with a specific party.

I'm not a member of any party, but I would probably be described best as a "moderate socialist."

I identify as "liberal" and nearly always vote Democrat, but being on this board has certainly challenged this label. I am pro-authoritarian as in the opposite of libertarian. On the liberal side, I'm for LGBT equality, for universal healthcare, for progressive income tax, and pro-choice (within first trimester unless there are medical issues). On the conservative side I'm for isolationist foreign policy (although the neocons like more war, this is more Ron Paul-style conservative), for a more restricted reading of the Interstate Commerce Clause, against illegal immigration, and against anonymous sperm donation.

I'm against a lot of the nonsense on this board that is pervasive here but non-existant in actual politics, namely legalization of polygamous and incestuous marriages. I have very little sympathy for people who willfully choose to engage in certain behaviors that are contradictory to social norms, which I wholly distinguish from certain immutable traits.
