    I didn't think so...So much for advertising...

    and you're still not explaining yourself on the map thing, maybe I need more coffee, but...
    I'm not sure I understand your point about advertising but just take a look at an electoral map, preferably one that goes to the county or ED level.

    Look at the areas that are blue. Look at the areas that are red.

    Now, where are you more likely to see natural wildlife?

    Which one do you identify with closest?

    Or do you reject these descriptions, if so than please provide your own.
    I wasn't aware there were different kinds of Conservative. Non of those definitions apply to me, and I don't offer a definition. My positions are my positions and I have no interest in establishing label for it.

    I am a conservationist, more or less (even if it means admitting that Teddy bloody Roosevelt had a couple of good ideas in his fat megalomaniac bully head).

    Never was tempted to call myself "conservative" though. Maybe this is purely linguistic: in my native languages, "konserwa" is the canned stuff that is, technically speaking, edible - when you run out of all other options. Not all that different from the (civilized) conservatism in politics, I guess

    The point was you don't always get what's advertised.

    As to the map, I do see what you're saying I wanted to be clear though, and like I had told the other gentleman, it is the Big Bank Hanks I speak of, not the sportsmen or the rank and file necessarily that I was referring to.

    The Colonel had his bright moments...

    Like said, and I should have clarified it before, usually most rank and file, outdoors types are conservationists, it was the Big Biz components I was referring to.

    You trying to say conservatives are the spam of politics Cy?

    What Kind Of Conservative are you?

    A mixture of sorts, but primarily domestic and policy neoconservative and influenced by the academic-oriented neoconservatives. For foreign policy, I mostly tend to lean toward real politik, but that does not mean interventionism does not influence me either.
