    Age vs Political Idilogy

    Just a curiousity of your party affiliation vs your age. I used to be on liberal side now lean towards the conservative side

    If you're a liberal at 40, you have no head.

    If you're a liberal at 20, you're an unemployed druggie.

    Pushing 30, somewhat conservative.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The quote is actually "If you're not Liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not Conservative when you're 35, you have no brain." but there is no record of him actually saying it. Liberal and Conservative are also different in England, as they were different for us in the 30's and 40's.

    Some of the people here are neither conservative or liberal.

    I've never really been a liberal, but as I get older, I get more and more conservative. Note, that's conservative, not neo-con. Neo-cons are not remotely conservative.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I agree.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    In fact, I'd argue that liberals and neo-cons are very, very similar. There just is no actual conservative party in America today.

    I am a 66 year old who believes in fiscal responsibility. In other words that the government should not spend any more money that what it takes in except in extreme emergencies, I would classify the great depression and WWII as those emergencies. I also have no problem with abortion, a woman should be able to do what she wants with her own body, no problem with gay marriages, I think President Obama did the right thing on immigration in not departing the children of illegals. Simply put, I think any individual ought to be able to live the life they want as long as they are not harming others. I guess this makes me a fiscal conservative and a social liberal.

    That is not an answer or choice in your poll. So I choose none of the above.
