I have read some of Machiavelli's and Plato's writings, but those are considered to be from a republican's pov. Which philosopher do you guys recommend I read to get a different perspective on things. Thanks guys

Both of those can be read from both perspectives. John Stuart Mill, Marx, Max Weber. Some Anarchist philosphers like Kropotkin. Chalmers Johnson (former Conservative and Intelligence analyst).

JOHN RAWLS He is the widely considered the most important moral and political philosopher of the 20th century. Just about all political philosophy going on at this moment is a reaction to his work.

Nozick (defo not from a republican pov), Rawls, Mackie ( read "Ethics"), MacIntyre ("After Virtue") But i would advise you to just read Kymlicka´s "Contemporary political philosophy". No better introduction yet written on any topic. A great book in all respects.

I agree with Indreks recommendation of Kymlicka. Mackies book is also good. Rawls book A theory of Justice is important, but is as boring as a book can be, imo..

Rawls really isn't that liberal. Alot of lefty profs spend alot of time critiquing him.
