    Conservative or Liberal? That is the question.

    How does one tell if they are Conservative or Liberal? I will give you some examples of what I believe in, and maybe someone can tell me which I am. I was like most Americans and only paid attention to one or two issues that would affect my life after the elections. But now I can see there is so much more in deciding who to vote for. So here goes:

    1. Pro Life - Anti Abortion
    2. Pro Gun, I'm all for the 2nd Amendment
    3. Do not approve of gay marriges or gay rights period
    4. I am definately under $12,000 a year income
    5. I'm caucassion and 46 years old
    6. I am Christian (Protestant)
    7. I am a supporter of SB 1070
    8. I would like to see a smaller federal government
    9. I would like to see politicians retirements merged with the publics social security.
    10. Against casino gambling
    11. Legalize "POT"!! ( I don;t smoke myself,but I know the federal govt. will go crazy trying to enforce tax on it!)
    12. Actually I ran out of things to list on # 11 !!!! lol
    I believe I am independant, not realy for or against the (R)'s or (D)'s.
    Is this enough to have someone tell me which way I tend to lean? Left, Right, Conservative or Liberal? Thanks in advance everyone. BigMike

    Much of what you described fits in with the mainstream conservative ideology, except for pot legalization. For the most part, I'd label most of your views as traditionally conservative.

    I consider myself to be a conservative libertarian, meaning I embrace conservative & libertarian views incl:

    1. Anti-amnesty
    2. Pro-drug decriminalization
    3. Pro-free market
    4. Pro-privatization
    5. Pro-secularism in gov't
    6. Anti-preferential treatment (affirmative action, quotas, etc.)
    7. Pro-choice (although I'm opposed to public funding of abortions)
    8. Pro-gay marriage (I oppose gov't involvement in marriage)
    9. Pro-decentralization
    10. Anti-UN
    11. Pro-English as an official language
