    I have yet to find a political survey that's accurate.

    All people are responsible to their fellow citizens. That's the point of living together in a community or nation in the first place, so we can all benefit from our collective achievements.

    I'm not sure what you are referring to; however, I was not seeking accuracy, but more about what she thought about an array of issues.

    I will admit, there are certain topics for which I take a Liberal stance, however, as you can see, the number of topics I am truly Liberal on is probably closer to 50% of the issues than 75%.

    What about you? How conservative do you think you are? Do you agree with all of their stances on the various issues?
    You might not be as liberal as I thought; however, I believe that if push came to shove, you would prove to be more liberal than you are saying here. This is just a hunch, but I still think that is correct.

    In order to label her, right? Issues can actually be separate. Just because someone is "liberal" on one issue doesn't mean that same label applies on other issues. My point is, it's a diversion.

    So why aren't they pushing for finance reform and instead, taxes on those making $250K in household income, and those who have scratched and saved to afford themselves a small nest egg to be invested and live off the interest seeing only a moderate cap gains tax? By all means, push for finance reform, I got your back!

    As I said, I want to understand her. If you don't believe me, then fine.
