    I'm financially conservative but socially liberal. I believe in being financially responsible and allow very few excuses for elaborate expenditures. Socially, I'm very much in belief of freedom of expression. It expands an individuals ability to excel.

    If I could be described, it would be as an independent thinker, but not Thorgasm.

    Yes, but what I mean is the ideology of the party. The CCP is pretty socially conservative. They have lot more laws in China concerning decency, how much skin is shown in movies, sexual conduct and so on than what we have over here. Social conservatism is a hallmark of the vast majority of authoritarian governments regardless of their economic policies.
