Which one are you mostly?

1) Politically liberal/prefers fantasy gaming
2) Politically conservative/prefers fantasy gaming
3) Politically liberal/prefers some genre other than fantasy gaming
4) Politically conservative/prefers some genre other than fantasy gaming

Define any of the terms however you wish.

My politics are just that: mine. I don't mix my politics with my gaming. Cheers!

Insert (non-partisan!) joke about politicians who live in fantasy worlds?

Isn't all gaming fantasy?

I define the term "mostly" to mean greater than 0% of the time.

1, 2, 3, and 4.

Where I'm from, liberals and conservatives are generally taken to belong to the same half of the political spectrum.

Political conservative maybe, I think, I don't really recognize or identify with what passes for "conservatism" these days but liberalism has moved farther and farther afield and I didn't like it to begin with. I guess I'm in the middle these days but only because both sides have moved so far from anything resembling a rational or reasonable perspective. Maybe special relativity could explain it.

Anyhow, I love fantasy and pretty much everything else but I lean to everything else, especially science fiction because I've done so much fantasy over the years.

I would see the worldview of Tolkien and Michael Moorcock as diametrical opposites. Tolkien was a true conservative (ie. conserving) point of view while Moorcock was/is a far left, anarchist. Their respective mythologies reflect this. So, I don't think there is any connection between political philosophy and the ability to write, read or enjoy fantasy.
