ooooooh boy you will be ripped to shreds in the off-topics if you make it there. A fellow C/O 2020 poster, bwaldorf, is certainly right of center. She has been harassed a bit for that because this site is super liberal. I personally am a small "l" libertarian. I usually vote left because of my social liberalness. I vote libertarian when it's an option, even though some of the platforms for the party are whacky. but otherwise often vote Dem. I vote for some repubs in the local elections because everyone in my area is pretty far right regardless of party affiliation.
Libertarians also get ripped to shreds on here. #TaxationIsTheft #DefendThe2nd #LegalizeFreedom
I voted for Gary in 2016
I describe myself as a small l libertarian as well, but in the old sense of the word. I'm a libertarian socialist, I probably identify mostly with Luxemburgism. Support a small central government and direct democracy, But I'm also an anti-capitalist, which puts me pretty far from the US Libertarian Party policy. Johnson might be slightly less awful than Clinton in my mind due to foreign policy alone, but I threw my vote away with Stein instead.
A buddy of mine is a photographer for our University newspaper and went to a Jill Stein recount rally. He said there were like 20 people there and it was sad.
Stein was a shitty candidate, so many U-turns. I much preferred her VP candidate, Baraka, to her herself. Also preferred Soltysik and La Riva, but neither was on VA ballot. Voted mostly to vote against right to work.
For anyone interested in Rojava's economy, the literature on it is pretty sparse. This translation of a Russian article is pretty decent though: https://cooperativeeconomy.info/the-economy-of-rojava/
Should clarify I consider myself a Marxist and tend to be skeptical of anarchist revolutions' staying power, but "democratic confederalism" does interest me.
