    Being conservative with money is creating a budget and staying in that budget.
    It all depends upon what your spending money on. Spending $1 trillion on a war in Iraq is money waisted. Money spent on the infrastructure - road, bridges, schools, etc. is an investment in our country...

    That is being irresponsible with money, not liberal.

    EDIT: Responsibly going into debt, is just that.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Explain, having debt is bad because then your beholden to someone. Having the ability to go into debt as fine but it doesnt mean that you should.

    It's not. Neither is it a tenet of liberalism to consistently run deficits for long periods of time.

    I don't find this poll surprising at all. I would bet money that it's the "social" aspect that is the biggest detractor. I consider myself to be conservative, but only with regards to some policies. I 100% support gay marriage, I support special-case abortions, and other policies just bother me. I'm also for deregulation and government serving the people instead of dominating them. All together, I would have to say no to this survey. However, I will still make sure my vote against President Obama is counted next year.
