Liberal or Conservative?

If a mod could add a poll to this, I'd love them for the rest of my days

I'm wondering if we could get a basic idea as to where this forum falls on the political spectrum. So, given the words 'Liberal,' and 'Conservative,' which would you find more fitting to describe yourself?

I always knew you were a closet Tea partier, deep. You were just trying to suppress who you really are. Can't fool me though!

Well, I'll start off by saying I'd consider myself a conservative, with serious libertarian leanings.

Why do I have to choose between one or the other?

Conservative will win the poll because no one will admit to being a liberal. (Who can blame 'em?)

The 2 actual choices in FYM are reasoned moderate or right-wing extremist.

It's interested how "liberal" has been the victim of a slow, churning, 20+ year campaign to make it a dirty word.

Liberal. I'm perfectly OK with the label and don't mind choosing between the two.

Considering what conservative has come to mean in the US, I'd be ashamed to call myself a conservative and can't imagine why anyone would want to call themselves that.

Because the way they see it, they're moral, Godly and true to the American way. Liberals are amoral, atheist and communists, according my neo-con relatives.

BTW, I consider myself moderate if that's permissible in America these days.

I really like to think of myself as 50 percent socialist, 50 percent libertarian.
I generally think the government should be heavily involved in certain things and hands off other things. But, I'll default to Liberal every time because I believe organized society exists to help people, and I trust the government to help people more than churches or corporations. And, I have more control over the government.

I just find it funny that libertarian somehow equals conservative. The only libertarian views I've heard from conservatives involve corporations and free trade.
