    Anarchist when I can get away with it: I have a problem with authority figures. For some strange reason they don't like me very much.
    I would call you a radical then, because you want to shape a society like nothing that's ever existed.

    Only in desire...recognizing that such is not a likely outcome, I content myself to maximize my individual liberty, and that is best achieved by reversing the century and a half of creeping statism that is engulfing this nation. Thus reactionary in application.

    I'm a conservative in this sense. I prefer to see change occur incrementally because I believe when too much is gained too fast, things have a much greater chance of spinning out of control and undoing any good that has been gained. I look at the how the Roman Empire turned out and I shudder.

    I would be a reactionary. I would like to see us return to a time when the constitution meant something to the people. Today, the left and the right has done all they could to butcher it. And We the people are rapidly loosing what we have fought and died for, Our Freedoms.
    I have found that Liberals are weak. They are unable and unwilling to look evil in the eye, and deal with it-Instead, they are drawn to today’s ideological butchers like a moth is to flame.

    Damn, I couldn't of said it better myself.

    I'm very hard to place in the scheme of things the OP has set up. I want quite a different society and gov't to the one Britain has now but one stressing the heritage and traditions of the past and above all decentralised, with a lot less big gov't and big business power and more localism, regionalism and traditionalism.

    I am watching our government fail us. I see that the only time that they pay any attention to the people s when they are begging for our votes.
    We attack sovereign nations just because we have a president that wants to.
    We are governed by idiots that tell us days before the econmy goes in the toilet that it is just fine.

    It is time to let socialism evolve ot of this failing system. It is the right time. I guess that would be a radical change.

    I'm pretty sure I'm some kind of radical... I'm still working out what KIND of radical, but it's a start.

    Re: Whats your beliefs, really...

    Those are ridiculous definitions, by those definitions, *EVERYONE* has to be a liberal because *EVERYONE* knows that we need to make changes from time to time. Luckily, that's not what liberalism is, any more than your definition for what conservative is remotely accurate.

    I'm a conservative in the classical sense, fiscally and socially.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
