Tryin' to make some sense of it all
But I can see there makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor
I don't think that I can take any more

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle with you.


Morally and fiscally conservative- philosophically liberal...it's almost a wash!

I was born and raised in a liberal Democratic family. I used to vote Democratic all the way (since 1992). However, last year, New York had its gubernatorial (sp?) election and I voted for the Green candidate (I felt it was the right thing to do, despite the fact he lost). I am not sure who I will vote for in '04.

Breathesgelatin, is there such a thing as a conservative Green?

Smile What I is....

I don't claim a particular party...because although I have voted Deomocrat in the last 2 elections (since I've been of age to vote) as I'm learning more about myself and politics...I believe I am a social and fiscal conservative...but not an extreme conservative. But can't say that means I'm a Republican, because I wouldn't have voted for Ahhhnold in CA.

So basically I look at a candidate issue and decide my response based on my beliefs..not party affiliation.

I am registered as a Democrat, but mainly because I'm slightly more liberal than conservative, based on political ideology tests taken in both high school and college.

But like many others, I vote in elections based on the issues and the ideas of the persons running, not because they are a particular party (I voted American Law party in the actual Governor's race last year in CA between Simon and Davis, and then voted for Arnold in the recall election...but did vote NO on the recall )

Honestly, I have no idea....but I really respected and agreed with the ideas that their candidate for governor had, and voted for her in the election, because I didn't like Davis or Simon....both were too slimy...

Now there's a shocking revelation....politicians being too slimy

I'm registered with the Conservatives in Canada, and I'm happy with the recent decision to merge. It makes me more comfortable to say that I'm conservative now, since both the Alliance and Reform parties have had bad rep. I'd say that I'm morally conservative in most ways, but in no way would I ever force my beliefs on anyone, though I feel that it is sad that Canadians don't admit that they're religious as much as Americans. However, it is a personal opinion and I don't believe in "Bible Thumping". I guess I'm also conservative since I don't believe in taxing everyone to death just so others could have things that one should work very hard for. I've been legally allowed to vote since the municipal election in 1997, but haven't until the most recent munis (I don't know why I didn't vote in '97 and I was away at school the other years and was therefore not able to, since school address did not match the address I had registered. I was also not able to go home to vote...yeah, I know, excuses, excuses!)

I am a Democrat. Actively involved with the Democratic Party. However, I am a free thinker, and I do not blindly support everything my party supports. As a Christian, I am morally conservative. However, I am in favor of Demcratic economic plans.

I'm a republican, as are my parents and my younger brother. My father's dad is republican as well. Everyone else in our family are democrats. I have an uncle who was a state senator from the mid 80s to the mid 90s. Over thanksgiving we all have these huge political discussions and usually its me, my brother, my dad and my mom against the rest of the family when having debates about political issues. However, this past thxsgiving my uncle and I sat down for a couple of hours and talked about all sorts of stuff in history ( He has his PhD in History ) and then discussed politics and trade agreements. After talking to him for awhile and going in depth on what democrats believe and why they believe the things they do.....I'm starting to think I'm in the wrong political party. At times i feel like I'm a moderate republican and other times I feel like I'm a democrat. I told my mom and dad I was thinking about changing political parties and they about flipped out. My mom was more worried than my dad, my dad says he thinks he's starting to think more like a libertarian. When I asked my mom why she doesn't value being a democrat and basically despises them....she answers "Because they support homosexuality". I told her thats about the dumbest reason I've ever heard for someone to not like a political party. I tried explaining to her that not all democrats like gay people. She's one of those people who thinks George W is heaven scent.



Sitting on the political fence.....

I don't know. My family says I should go into either Politics or Law, for some reason they think I'd do well in those two fields. If I was an independent I'd have everyone in my family pissed off at me. They'd start cracking on me by making Ross perot jokes, or something along those lines.



In my view you're either one or the other.....Independents suck.

I am a proud Democrat. I am a bit more conservative than most Democrats, but definitely more liberal than any Republican. I actually thought for years in high school that I was a liberal Republican. Then, in college, I discovered that I truly lean to the left.
