    To me, I automatically think "stingy." Like they don't have kids attending public schools, so why should they pay taxes for them. Or a dislike for most programs meant to benefit society as a whole.

    At one time it did mean conserving spending of our tax dollars as a country. I might have respected the tea party, if they had a hissy fit during Bush's big spending spree.

    I chose other, because I think resistant to change. Not necessarily traditional. I really do not think of the word in a political context. Marriage views, drug views, abortion views, gay views, energy views, etc. are the subjects that are resistant to change.
    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 think "has nice car and gets laid a lot", and unless that starts happening, I'm not going to be conservative any more.

    Spiteful ignorance, in my experience, together with a fixed belief that minnows are sharks.

    Conservative = Constitutionalist, traditionalist, small government capitalist, and critical thinker. Liberal = big government socialist, out of control spending, tax tax and more tax, nanny state marxist, makes decissions based on feelings not facts, weak on defense.

    Is undoubtedly better with money, because they conserve it.
    Usually cares about tradition, and traditional Christian values.
    Doesn't want to be part of "the collective."
