    I think "zombie". Most dislike or hate "vampires".

    At least now I do.

    The first thing is traditional. Now, all of those belong on the list, but on face value, I hold, for instance, not much of ill feelings toward hierarchy or elitism.

    I picked tradition, but really cautious is the adjective that comes first to mind.

    good god - people are nasty.

    "Conservative" means "restrained" or "controlled" to me - conserving energy or conserving food scraps . . . and I don't think that in regard to politics - It's a neutral word on first thought . . . it becomes political if it's in political context.

    Likewise: my first thought about "Liberal" is "liberated" or "unrestrained"

    Selfish? Sorry, I'm just being honest. The stereotypical conservative wants personal freedom but is authoritarian in many other respects. JMO.

    Moderation or caution should have also been on the list, but then whoever started it wanted it slanted in a particular direction to attempt to drive home some strange concept...like brain washing...but that only works on weak liberals.

    Drugs should all be legal, take big money out of the business.
    Marriage is optional.
    Abortion is an individual decision.
    Gays are not genetic.
    We waste at least 70% of all energy, we need to address that.
    Those are my views and I think of myself as a conservative individual.
    I really think in your case, after reading the above, that you should spell conservative with the letters "liberal".
