    guugh, I should have read your definition for that first.

    Oh well, it's a common misconception anyway.

    Re: What Kind of Conservative / Liberal are you?

    Of course this kind of poll has to use terrible "liberal vs. conservative" and "social vs. fiscal" positions. Neither has much accuracy at all in the larger scope of things.

    According to the definitions provided I would be along the lines of a "social moderate/conservative." On "fiscal," "other," I do not determine my position by how much the state intervenes in the economy, but by whose interests are served and whether it is a help to mine. State intervention can be quite good when there's a lot of it in some situations, little in others; also depends where the state intervenes.

    I think a moderate just isn't very moved by some of the big issues. Guns, abortion, immigration, government spending ...... I'm just not passionate about these issues. It's not like I'm undecided. I will most likely never feel passionate about these issues.

    When I do feel passionate about an issue it's never an extreme passion. I've been democrat, I've been republican.

    There should be a choice on our profiles of "very moderate." That's how I feel.

    Definitions:

    Fiscal conservative -- Believes in government restraint in economic matters -- limited spending, minimal taxes, and minimal regulations.

    Fiscal liberal -- Believes in a great deal of government involvement in economic matters -- lots of social/welfare programs, generous spending, high taxes and borrowing, and lots of regulations and mandates.

    Social conservative -- Believes in strict laws and prohibitions against alternative lifestyles, gambling, prostitution, recreational drugs, etc.

    Social liberal -- Believes in a live and let live policy on the above social matters and few or no laws against them.

    Moderate -- One who stands about halfway between the two extremes, is wishy-washy, or is undecided.

    Other -- Any viewpoint that does not fit any of the above definitions. Please explain.
    Conservative is not an extreme

    I fit into the fiscal conservative/social moderate categories, although your definition of social moderate is really idiotic. Wishy washy? How is supporting some causes from each side wishy washy?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: What Kind of Conservative / Liberal are you?

    Fiscal and social conservative.

    Survival of the fittest -- No welfare, low taxes, low government intervention, full laissez-faire capitalism, state only responsible for defence, justice, and, law and order.

    I prefer the more traditional family values lifestyle. A mum, a dad, few kids, a nice house with a backyard, etc. Dad works, while mum stays at home and looks after the kids.

    I've always thought "Very moderate" was just another term for "I just don't give a damn".

    Generally, I see the "Very moderates" as people who don't care about politics.

    Those who are unsure might want to take this test.

    My results:
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 40%. (100% is the most liberal.)
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 60%. (100% is the most conservative.)

    ...Meaning I am much less of a social liberal than I thought. Also, much less of a fiscal conservative than I thought. But then, the test isn't entirely accurate; I know plenty of extremely liberal people who are against legalized prostitution.

    I'm mostly with Zyphilin.

    Fiscal conservative, definately. Constitutional constructionist also.

    Social moderate:

    My personal life is socially conservative, in that I willingly hold myself to a fairly strict code of behavior.

    I don't necessarily want to legislate that others behave the same way; I'd rather persuade them that they should choose to, for their own good and the greater good. If they will not be persuaded, then as long as they aren't directly harming others or militantly getting in my face about it, I shrug and say "its a free country".

    There's a very short list of vital issues that some might consider "social controls" that I do favor. I don't suppose I'll go into it here since it would sidetrack the thread.
