RE: What political leaning do you have?
I see a lot of my conservative friends on Facebook praising this sort of crap, like "Yeah, serves him right, I would have done the same thing":
http://madworldnews.com/father-invites-rapist-dinner/
I've even had to listen to my own relatives heatedly fantasize about scenarios such as "I'll shoot any boy who touches my daughter without my consent."
I find it funny that many of these people are the same ones bashing Islamic cultures for their practice of killing rapists. I don't understand how someone can possibly compartmentalize their brain to that extent.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

The problem with statements like this are that principles are the easy part - and they're the part everybody already agrees with.

I mean, I've never heard anyone advocate for an irresponsible and incompetent government. Where they differ is in their definitions of - to take the above as an example - "protect", "people", "property", "basic", and "infrastructure".

Why is it always left or right?

Why can't there be an UP? I'd give my vote to a political party that focuses on getting us off this rock.

My biggest problem with the execution of rapists in Muslim countries is when the definition of rape includes sex before marriage or sex with a non Muslim.

I propose that we rename the North Atlantic, the Farnsworth Ocean.

If carried, I also propose we rename New York, the Cape of Good News.

RE: What political leaning do you have?
I'm in the UK, and I'm going to vote green or labour.

I don't know a great deal about politics, but I've made an effort to gather more information for this election.

Green and labour are the only parties which give a fuck about animals, and that is a priority to me. Not only do Tories not care, they actually want to bring back fox "hunting" which should be called fox torture. There is no way I'm going to vote for anyone who wants that. UKIP also support it, so they are out. I don't see the Tories doing a particularly good job running the country anyhow.

I like green because they also care about the environment more than most parties. I may vote for them, not because I expect them to win this time, but to try and get them more seats. I want a voice for animals and the environment in politics. My friend once told me green was a wasted vote, as they would never get a seat. Now they have over 20 I believe.

If I want to try and get someone to actually win. I'll vote labour. They have surprisingly good animal policies, they plan to abolish or improve something like 8-10 different issues. Unfortunately I find them as slippery as the Tories in actually being honest about stuff.

The lib dems I know less about, but I do know they held back the Tories from doing some bad stuff like bringing back fox hunting already, and auctioning off everyone's fucking granny to the highest bidder.

All in all... I think labour or green. Ironically I liked Farage because he was the only one at the debate out of the big parties being properly honest. I could see the others lying through their teeth about various matters. But I'm not going UKIP because they also have crazy ideas like bringing in handguns, promoting fracking, and trying to solve every problem ever by tackling immigration.

Please don't vote for Cameron. Fox hunting is absolutely vile. For those that don't know, it's dragging out the "cull" of a fox as long as possible using dogs, to terrorise the fox and chase it until it's at the point of absolute exhaustion. Sometimes it dies from its heart exploding. Then the dogs rip it to shreds. If a fox "needs" to die, it should be done as quickly and cleanly as possible. Cameron actually said people in the countryside need fox hunting. Fuck off. No one needs to torture animals.

Thanks for reading!

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
