I'm a liberal in the social sense and a centrist in the economic sense. Therefore, I support quite strongly things like minority rights, abortion, same-sex marriage, euthanasia as well as individual liberties, and I'm against the death penalty. I'm atheist and strongly support the separation between the church and state, and I abhor it when the law involves itself in moral issues, particularly victimless crimes (although I strongly support public smoking bans, since smoking indirectly causes so many victims). On economic issues, I support free-market economics, even though I also believe workers' rights should be guaranteed. I'm in favour of flat tax, particularly of the flavour that was recently introduced in Romania, in 2005.
In Romanian politics, I support the governing Justice and Truth Alliance, made up of the National Liberal Party and the Democratic Party, even though I support the Liberal part of the Alliance much more than the Democratic part, which I believe is becoming more right-wing and populist. I'm against the merger of the Liberals and the Democrats, since I believe their ideologies differ fundamentaly, and there is need for a truly liberal party in Romania.
I'm somewhat against the Social Democratic Party, rather against the Christian-Democratic People's Party and the Liberal Democratic Party and particularly dislike the Conservative Party and the New Generation Party. At the European level, I support most of all the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party, and to an extent the Party of European Socialists and the Party of the European Left. I also sympathise with green politics. I generally don't hold common views with the European People's Party-European Democrats and with the Union for a Europe of Nations.
I support granting regional autonomy to the Szekely Land, with Romanian and Hungarian both being official languages of equal status, where there would be a devolved Szekely assembly and a Szekely government, including a chief minister. I believe that ethnic Hungarian deputies in the Romanian parliament should have the right to give their oath in Hungarian, as per the Welsh model.
I support the independence of Transnistria as a multi-ethnic state that offers equal right to all of its constituent people (something akin to Belgian model). This doesn't mean at all that I support the current Smirnov government in Transnistria.
I support the creation of an independent Republic of Taiwan and the establishment of a friendly, mature relationship between the PRC and Taiwan. In a Taiwanese context, I support the Democratic Progressive Party. At the same time, I do not believe in Tongyong Pinyin; for standardisation purposes, I support Hanyu Pinyin as a universal romanisation for Mandarin.
I've been called patriotic by many people, and I love Romania. At the same time, I also see myself strongly as an European citizen and believe in an united Europe. Hence, I see myself as equally Romanian and equally European. I don't, however, believe too much in nationalism, and I definitely don't support the politics of the Great Romania Party. I suppose I'm also an allophile.
