What makes you a Conservative or a Liberal?


Did you make a choice based on your personal world views and ideals or did you follow the opinions of others based on race, culture, family or friends?

    Spoken like a true convert, lol. Glen Beck went the other way. But you can wrap up what you said in one word that describes the kind of fundamentalism you are talking about ... intolerance. If you want a second word ... righteousness.

    Christin, I personally think it's our inability to detect huge logic flaws in thinking. If you notice a lot of talk radio uses name-calling, circular reasoning, over-generalization, argument from fallacy to deflect real dialog b/c that entertains

    Great answer, I would classify myself as a Liberal Democrat; however,I am against big government.I believe in individual self-determination, responsibioity, and accountability.I 'm for reasonable social and health programs,not socialized health care.

    Yes the party of critical thinking ;) of which you'll find precious few in DC these days I might add. Like everything else nothing is black/white there is a lot of grey area and that's where progress happens.
