it's time to find out whether TLS is lefty Twitter, liberal twitter or conservative twitter


I would ask for a poll if I didn't already know the answer.

50% liberal 25% each lefty and conservative maybe?
Might be underselling my own Side here.

Socialist, social democrat, social liberal, libertarian, conservative, national conservative, fascist? Something like that? (though not too many self identify as fascists if you wanna rethink that one)

Socially liberal, economically liberal
Socially liberal, economically conservative
Socially conservative, economically liberal
Socially conservative, economically conservative

So I'm thinking:
anarchist
libertarian
socialist democrat
neoliberal
liberal
conservative
neoconcersative
social conservative
economic conservative
alt-right/and or nationalist

This might be a dog shit list. Very open to more thoughts before I update the poll

sure. Which one do you want it to replace?

Also if anyone wants a specific one that is not covered by this list feel free to ask (within reason, I probably won't add super specific things like ecofeminism)

seems pretty subjective as to how one might score themselves. it'd probably end up being based on other people you know (read: extremists) when it should be in comparison to the scale as a whole. whereas the titles that barry mentioned are pretty clearly defined to what they corresponding beliefs are.

If we want some more shitposting we just need people providing some hot takes. I'll start.

People that complain about individuals (NFL Players) kneeling for the Anthem are the problem with America and are unable to properly comprehend what "freedom" entails.

We should do a "hottest take" poll

Agreed. I think that kneeling is actually a powerful and peaceful way to protest. It made total sense to me

I started mild to get some discussion going. Once we get a few heated discussions going I think it would then be safe to really bring the "hottest" takes out of the woods.

Out of all of your incorrect opinions about how Halloween and the fall are mediocre, this is where I draw the line. If you are eating one before the other, you're doing it wrong. You have to bite them both at the same time.

You’re a monster. One has to go before the other but I don’t care which.

HEY! Has anyone here studied abroad with IFSA-Butler? I just realized that LSAC sometimes counts study abroad grades under certain circumstances and wondered if anyone who has studied with IFSA has had those grades count for LSAC GPA. Feel free to PM me if you're more comfortable that way.
