I'm curious about whether where people live, and how many places they've lived, influences their political ideas. So, tell me where you've lived, and how you identify yourself politically. For example, I've lived in New York, California, Virginia, Michigan, Idaho, and Texas. I identify as liberal. How 'bout you?

I think living lots of places does widen your perspective. Thanks for answering!
One of the places I have lived was four of the best years of my life (1986-1990) at Fort Lewis, WA. Our quarters were right on American Lake. What beautiful country near so much more beauty. My husband is one of those military types. Don't talk Pol
American Lake is great. It's a lot more built up now, as is the entire area. However, Mt. Rainer still makes the commute a lot nicer (when clear).
Good answer, CJ.
With so many days of rain every year, my school-aged children would say "The mountain showed up for work today" any day you could see Rainer.
I intentionally left party names out of this question, to hear how people tend to lean, or identify themselves.
I think you brought up an interesting point: that we can lean left on some issues, and right on others. Thanks for answering, and for the links.
You're welcome. I learned a lot with the PBS survey comparing my position with the demographics of participants. Seems the middle range is not uncommon.
