    A Poll for Conservatives (and Libertarians)

    Please mark all that are true. Do not vote unless you are conservative or libertarian.

    ****! I forgot that I was supposed to make one option "I am a Conservative or Libertarian" so it would show that you voted but did not vote for anything else. Oh well, this poll is now a failure.

    *Edit: I just sent a message to a mod and hopefully he'll edit the last option to say that.

    digsbe fixed the poll so now everyone is counted whether they agree with any of the options or not. Thanks again, digsbe.

    meh, no biggie.. people who want to participate will let their opinions be known regardless.

    the problem with polls presented by one side of the political spectrum, and aimed at the other side, is that there will be bias present... and even a few strawmen-like options.
    for example , your last option..
    "If we removed all regulations, the free market would benefit everyone." is a not an accurate representation of conservative or libertarian dogma.. it's representative of anarchy.
    neither libertarians nor conservatives espouse the desire to remove all regulations.
    proponents of fewer regulations, who are primarily conservatives and libertarians, can't honestly vote for your last option.

    it's also not good form to offer an option that entails a preset cause.
    for example..
    "Most universities and institutions of science are liberal leaning because of grant money."
    what if a person thinks these universities are liberal for a reason other than "....because of grant money"?

    it's imperative to present the options in the most unbiased fashion possible

    That's why I didn't vote for that option. I want fewer, even much less regulation in the market, but certainly not no regulation at all.

    Also, "AGW is not real" in the context of how libs sell it. The climate is changing, but it's not the apocalypses liberals propheci.

    I know population wasn't on th list, but folks will discover that we could actually be in a low-population crisis within a couple hounded years.

    "Abortion is murder". Not always, as homicide can and frequently is justified. I went ahead and agreed with it because abortion today is being used irresponsibly.

    Agreed. I had to give a second thought over the votes I did make.

    No problem, I'm glad I could help.

    Absolutely. While a few of the options were fine, most were so ridiculously biased as written that I couldn't, in good conscience, vote for them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
