    It always occurred to me that nowadays there's nobody politically neutral anymore (or never was). As I swear anyone who says they are neutral is either a liberal cuck or conservative faggot in denial. I get that those people may not be associating themselves with the SJWs or Alt-Right, but still... Like for myself, I thought I was neutral, but I realized I'm a bit too conservative to say that.

    And furthermore, if you happen to make a non-bias political opinion or statement, people seem to see you as the opposite side because it triggers them in some way lol.
    Is nobody truly politically neutral?

    Centrist is a polite word for cuck or idiot. It's usually just virtue signalling from Conservative, Inc. though.

    Edit: Besides, party platforms have so many stances, the odds of agreeing with every one of them to the letter is unlikely.

    centrism. not centralism. and it's largely a strategic question. refer to this quote:

    "Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides." - Margaret Thatcher

    The political spectrum is just about how many things you agree with someone on. Theoretically two centrists could be completely at odds with each other.

    It seems to pretty much mean anything at anytime, but it usually gets trotted out by politicians or self-described intellectuals when they're trying to act above-it-all.

    Which really isn't a bad way to look at things.
    Kind of too bad people don't see the importance of being neutral truly.

    You can be either a Dem or a Republican and still be a centrist. The idea is the two parties work together and compromise for solutions, as opposed to edicts being passed down by whomever is in power.

    Centrists are the ones who recognize both the alt-right and SJW left as complete retards and kick back a chair, grab some popcorn, and watch the fireworks

    A centrist is someone who doesn't give a damn about two ppl fucking.

    Unless they have to watch it.

    And the two people are just painfully ugly enough to make it unpleasant, but not ugly enough to make it strangely interesting.

    Yeah, and this is why I generally feel America never really goes anywhere lately. I blame Al Gore and the 90s kids.

    A lot of people are politically neutral, they're the people who don't care and don't vote. Among people who do pay attention and take part there is not now and never has been such a thing as a Centrist.

    Centrists are basically pussified libertarians who are between wanting true freedom and no freedom, they want little freedom and are usually close to authoritarian, basically Europeans.
