    What are you, politically?

    Regarding the political spectrum: are you more of a liberal, or more of a conservative, on social/fiscal issues? In what ways? This'll be multiple choice for those who are liberal on fiscal issues yet conservative on social issues, etc.

    I tend to be conservative in most things with a leaning toward the Libertarian side.

    Liberal. Not completely, but mostly. Fiscally and socially.

    Re: What are you, politically?

    Socially, I'm libertarian (aka liberal). Fiscally, I'm libertarian. Iow, I support equal rights, equal access, and freedoms/liberties, but I don't support government expenditures on any type of welfare, be it social or corporate. I support strong defense, but not national offense and nation-building, and I don't support foreign aid.

    I used to refer to myself as fiscally conservative, but the conservatives aren't conservative fiscally anymore.

    My politics?

    Fiscal Conservative.
    Social liberal.
    Pro gun. pro life. Welfare is supposed to be charity not entitlement. But I am all for charity. Those who can't do for themselves are much different than those who won't do for themselves.

    And if I can't make it any simpler to understand, watch the video. That pretty much describes my take on things.

    Re: What are you, politically?

    I voted other, I think I'm odd.

    Fiscally I'm conservative when it comes to government spending and debt. We shouldn't spend as much as we are. I'm fiscally liberal when it comes to how the money should be spent. We need to reduce defense spending and increase/reform spending in education, healthcare, infrastructure, and funding science.

    Socially I am more conservative. I am pro-life, against legalizing drugs, and I support personal responsibility and reforming social programs to prevent abuse. Although, I support same sex marriage and full rights to homosexuals. When it comes to drugs I think rehabilitation should be the focus, not serving jail time/punishment. I also support a nationalized healthcare system.

    I don't particularly like either party nor do I hate them. I think most policies should have the influence of both sides and have a middle approach, especially on economics. On economics we should be in the center with a free market capitalist system that has necessary government regulation to prevent income inequality, monopolies, and the life.

    I am a social and fiscal liberal, but not a cultural relativist, so I tend to be in the minority among liberals when it comes to certain aspects of foreign policy and the way I view illiberal societies.

    i'm pretty close to this .... but i'm a bit more agreeable to social safety nets (social welfare) and infrastructure investment (corporate welfare) than your average Libertarian.
