    Conservative here.

    However there's been a few of these posts. None ever give a really great view of DP but all give at least a little view. May want to search posts in this forum, you'll likely find a few.

    Also, feel free to check out THIS linke which shows you registered stats of people.

    The trouble with terms such as "most" liberal or conservative is that those who describe themselves as such are often anything but liberal or conservative in their approach to politics. They are simply rigidly dogmatic and extreme.

    I consider myself a liberal. Some of the more extreme lefties call me a right winger. Similarly, there are conservatives who face challenges to their conservative cred from those on the extreme right.

    If there is to be some sort of contest in regards to "most", it should be who most closely reflects the core values of the actual political philosophy involved rather than who is the most extreme.

    On which issue? Rather than pigeonhole people, you might be surprised to know that the ideological makeup of most people depends on which issue is being discussed at any particular point in time. My wife, for instance, is very Liberal, but sides with Conservatives on the illegal alien issue. I am Conservative, but could be called pro-choice, in that I have no problem with a state having legal abortions, if that is what it's constituents want. Also, if a state wants gay marriage, I have no problem with that either.

    To sum it up, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to ideology. The ideology of just about anybody will depend on context and issues.

    I consider myself left-of-center, but I'm also very pro-business and pro-trade.

    Re: Ideological Census

    The reason I consider myself independent is because my stances on issues are determined by my own independent thoughts and my own personal ideology. I am not a student of philosophy, political or otherwise. I am not inspired by world, national, state, or community leaders to adopt their philosophies. I do not watch or listen to the opinion shows of those who analyze the news. I believe that I have the capability to do the analysis and reach conclusions all on my own. It is my own ideology crafted from my own analysis, rather than influenced from without.

    Peoples general opinions of my ideology may paint me as being right of center. A slight libertarian socially and domestically, and a hawk on foreign policy would be a a way to group me I suppose.
