Seems like the libs outnumber the conservatives at least 10-1 on this forum. What do you think?
18-03-2004, 08:06
Right now it's 1-1...

lol...makes me almost not want to read the novel...I wouldn't but my brother (liberal, but intelligent = good political debates) told me it was a great read.

I really don't think this dualistic thinking helps us at all. I mean, can political thought be boiled down to such a simple dichotomy?

Can't we search for common ground and love one another? I mean, what are we really fighting for?

Oh, wow...I am so liberal. :lol:

I consider myself mostly liberal, but am socially conservative on certain grounds, so I'd be forced to say that I'm neutral.

I do, however, enjoy a good debate. 's more fun that way.

Fiscally responsible Liberal. Re why Liberals seem to "dominate" NS, aren't we usually the majority in places where people can read and write? :wink:

I'm a Conservative.

Moderate, but leans towards Liberal. I used to be Conservative, but my dislike of government changed that!

i guess it depends on your definitions, and where you draw the line between liberal and conservative. of course, i'm neither, so i really don't care :).

The liberals go last on my vote.

Hardcore Republicans2's national animal is the liberal and its currency is the green peace activist.

My national currency is the Reagan, ny national animal is the Elephant.

Take a guess :?

Wow, there are a lot of liberals... half as many conservatives..
03-04-2004, 19:21
I'm neither.

Frankly, I don't think it can be divided so easily. After all, in many ways Bush is a conservative in name only. His fiscal mismanagement is proof of that. Socially, of course he is, but when it comes to the big issues right now: the economy and the war, I don't think that his economic platform fits the mold of traditional conservatism, nor do I think that a war is inherently liberal or conservative. I just know that there are a lot of people who are for it, and lot who are against.

Much of that is split on party lines, but certainly not all of it.

I favor conservative economic policies (i.e. not communism :D ) and could care less about social policies, which means I'll take liberal ones if need be. A bunch of online political survey site things classify that kind of thinking as "libertarian." I lean towards conservative, though.

And yes, NS does have more liberals, ESPECIALLY in the UN (why do you think I left months and months ago?).
03-04-2004, 20:21
I'm a right-leaning centrist. So, I'm neither conservative nor liberal (however, I'm more conservative than liberal). Yeah. I took a political compass quiz.

Somebody was recently on the UN Forum complaining that we're all fascists.

Go figure.
