    Political Leanings?

    I've heard that we as a generation are more conservative than any generation since World War II, which I definitely see signs of. You've got kids shouting "Build the Wall!" in middle school cafeterias, and some schools even had to cancel mock elections because Trump was doing too well.

    Recently I found out that Gen Z begins with 1996 which to me feels like Christmas came early because I went so long thinking I was one of those pusscake millenials.

    So, how about you guys? The nice thing about this place is that it's anonymous so no one has to care about being called a racist or any of that crap. I'm thinking my NT brothers especially will be nice intelligent conservatives, but if we get some NF centrists in here I'll also consider that a huge step in the right direction.

    I consider myself a Socialist, but I also can't vote(too young) and I'm also Canadian, so that probably affects my opinion a bit. I personally don't support Trump.

    If the white population in the school are a minority, then this might have something to do with the rise of conservatism among middle school students in the US.

    Because me and my parents are not white, they resent Trump (I'm just merely inconvenienced by him, since racism isn't as big of an issue for me). Fortunately, we don't live in the US. However, I'm a bit offended by people's claims that millennials are spoilt and entitled leeches. While I did live in suburbia for most of my life in one of the most expensive cities in the UK, me and my parents didn't see eye to eye; my parents were born closer to the 50s than the 80s (they're both born in the late 60s, and spent most of their lives in rural areas and had me first in their thirties). Plus, my parents constantly complained about debt because of the high living costs. They'd still call me entitled because of this, but at least I don't feel a sense of entitlement because of the debt problem and because of me and my parents' conflicting values.

    Solid democrat, smack dab in the middle of the liberal spectrum. Think Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama-esque ideology (aka I'm unconvinced by Bernie, as lovable as the guy is).

    I feel like this past election has left millennials especially more divided than ever; while I think overall our generation is quite liberal (as most young generations are), it seems as though our conservatives are hard right and our liberals veer hard left. I'm very passionate in my belief that conservatives and liberals alike need to learn to communicate with each other in order for our country to heal. Too much of partisan hatred is based in "he said, she said" ignorance, and both sides need to do a better job of understanding where the other side comes from. The majority of conservatives are not racist rednecks, and the majority of liberals are not chronically offended sjws. With soon-to-be-president Trump spouting inflammatory rhetoric, healing the partisan divide won't be easy, but we need to stop calling each other names and start having real intellectual discussion and listen to each other. That's my view, at least.

    Born December 1997, I consider myself Paleoconservative, or Right Wing Libertarian. Generally support the Republicans over the Democrats. My ideal candidate would be Ron Paul, but as far as the 2016 election goes, my ideal candidate would be his son Rand Paul, followed by Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Donald Trump (minus his temperment). Voted for Gary Johnson in the election.
    I'm against gun control, against Obamacare, support moderate foreign policy, support privatized social security, and support smaller government.

    I'm also not with the pussy ultraliberal PC hippie SJWs that my generation is unfortunately associated with, and I want Andrew Jackson to stay on the 20 dollar bill. If you're going to take him off, why not also take off George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, they owned slaves, they advocated kicking Native Americans out of the Ohio River Valley, while Great Britain wanted to protect the Natives in that land.

    Yeah the 2000s were more conservative than the 2010s, but they had cooler shit. Although I'm also born in around the same time as you were, I kind of spite the right wing considering some of the things they support. I just don't want them (the left) coming after the things I like just because it's racist, like the pepe meme, but there's plenty of other dank memes to enjoy. I can understand why they'd come to those conclusions though.

    While I can empathise with the SJWs to some extent, I think they're just fighting the wrong fight. The feminism fight should be brought over to the Middle East and Asia, while over here, you could eradicate gender here through apolitical, perhaps even commercial means. That's one of my visions. As for corporate and government influence of the world compared to people power, pretty much the same as the SJWs, but also there's this power dynamic that can potentially corrupt everyone with it; you have to balance it out.

    This describes me pretty well:


    Not in any of the liberal/conservative/socialist/communist camps. I don't strongly identify with any of the aforementioned groups let alone any other to tell you what party i identify with, albeit I do admit I am conservative-leaning

    if it piques anyone's interest to see different political leanings between different races, I'm black and raised in the south. most blacks i know are very left-wing so I'm an oddity I suppose

    Heh. I was born in Dec. 1997 too--the 26th to be exact.

    Hard to say. I just go with whichever side has the best arguments. And that happens to be any side in any issue.

    Socially middle of the road, economically conservative.

    I always vote conservative, however.
