    That is interesting.

    I was raised in a Conservative household, still liberal.
    I mean, some of my views on issues like guns have changed but i'd still broadly identify myself with Lib Dems rather than Conservatives.

    I think part of it is what can someone be 'conservative' about in UK? Taxes and Immigration ... and crime. That is pretty much it.

    Imagine Oblivion, but about 50 times deeper gameplay. As an example, you simply could not join every faction and do all their quests, some where mutually exclusive, and made people either like or dislike you.

    Everybody says it was better. Im not the type to downgrade anyway, if ive played a version of the game with better graphics, i find it hard to go back and play the other version. The next one comes out in 2010

    Re: Age Demographics

    I'm 41, will be 42 next month, my mother was Republican my father leaned socialist. I sorted out between various forms socialism, conservative, environmental, libertarian, and any others that i could get. I decided on a sort of utilitarian libertarian with the issue of rights being one of the Great Lies like Justice, Law, ... hmm, that gives me an idea.

    I couldnt agree more, and here lies the problem. Our country is nealy 50/50 rural/urban and lean. Each time one side comes up with something that they feel would better their lives the other side feels it would harm theirs. Its so hard to find a happy medium. This is why I believe we would be better off with much much less federal power and oversight and more local and state powers. This way for example if NY state wanted a socialist state government and the majority voted this way it would not affect a more conservative state. The federal government trying to please the majority with blanket laws is bound to be negative to fair amount of the people.

    Probably, but I think that you are far too young to concrete your political philosophy.

    Honestly though? I've always been interested in politics. I can already see that I was much more radical thinking during the Bush years, and more level headed now that Obama is in office. I used to consider myself the liberal beyond a doubt. Now, I have much more centrist/right views on abortion, taxes, and war (while maintaining liberal views on gay marriage, immigration, healthcare, etc.).

    Our country is nealy 50/50 rural/urban and lean.
    The U.S. is 80% urban, with both republicans and democrats having notable amounts of supporters in both rural and urban areas. Republicans tend more towards rural and democrats urban, but even states that are primarily urban/rural still have a reasonable political party split.
