    Conservatives only: What kind of Conservative are you?

    I am doing kind of an experiment, in order to see what issues can be common ground to Conservatives of different persuasions. But first, I need to know what brand of Conservatism you wear on your sleeves. There is no right answer here, and this poll is also multiple choice, in that many Conservatives may feel comfortable in more than one category.

    Please answer the poll to the best of your ability, and we will go from there. A good explanation of why you chose the way you did would also be helpful.

    Thanx.

    Quasi mix of a Paleo-Conservative and Libertarian leaning Conservative.

    I am a fiscal conservative but I can swing left on certain social issues like abortion. In the end I am still a conservative even though I wear a moderate tag. I think most are independent or moderate and swing left or right depending on the issue.

    Fiscal conservative and conservative-leaning social moderate. I'm willing to compromise on some issues, am entirely non-religious and pro-rational on all issues.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Conservatives only: What kind of Conservative are you?

    I'm a fiscal conservative and I also live my life, socially, pretty conservative as well. I do have my vices, however.

    But my socially conservative opinions stop with me. I do not feel I have any place dictating my "morals" or opinions to others or expect them to follow my example.

    When I conquer the art of walking on water then I will dictate to you people just how your are supposed to live. Until then, you're on your own.

    Re: Conservatives only: What kind of Conservative are you?

    I am fiscally conservative, and closer to libertarian socially (although I live my life personally conservative).

    I favor small federal government, I have no desire to have Roe vs Wade overturned, on the drug issue, I'm okay with legalizing pot, but undecided on other narcotics- primarily because I don't want to be stuck paying for the care and support of drug addicts. (we already do enough of that with prescription drug use). I favor defense over offense, and tough reforms on illegal immigration.

    I'm an American.

    That's the only kind of "conservative" there is.
