I gotta' survey form form the DNC ( That's 'cause I are a Democrat, Don't tell nobody)

Anywho, I told'em to leave my money in my bank account and leave my guns alone and just in general leave me alone.

They wanted money, I didn't give'em any.

7/10 on foriegn policy issues. To get along in this world, a country needs to be strong.

6/10 on social issues.

Overall that would make me a 6.5/10. Sounds Barry Goldwaterish to me.

It all comes down to what you want to define "conservative" as.

I would be 10/10 on economic freedoms. I hate all forms of taxes which are not levied against a certain activity or usage. For example, if you want to drive you should have to pay a road tax for the maintenance of roads. Income tax, inheritance tax and council tax (taxation on home or land ownership) is totally unacceptable.

I would be 9/10 on social freedoms. While I fundamentally believe that people should be able to do whatsoever they want provided that it doesnt harm anyone else, I reserve a few caveats.

I am fervently opposed to gun control and would support the 2nd amendment if I lived in the USA.

I am pro-abortion. Not even "pro-choice", I am actually pro-abortion as a solution to societal ills caused by unwanted pregnancy. I find it incredibly strange that some people would force a victim of rape to bear the child of the rapist...

I dont give a crap about gay marriage- Its up to them. Since I disapprove of state support for marriage as an institution, it doesnt matter to me what people do. Amending the constitution to define "marrige" would be too heavy handed for my liking. I would, however, like the right to choose who works for me in any endevour where I employ someone.

An expansion on above, I am against affirmative action to the core of my being. I believe it denigrates the achievement of the model minorities and is unfair to those who are effectively bearing the brunt of their ancestor's actions. I would end affirmative action and revert to a system of pure meritocracy.

I hate the concept of fiat money and would revert to a bullion backed system.

So yep, Im not so much conservative as I am libertarian.

I'd give myself a 3/10.

I hold a combination of left-wing and libertarian viewpoints. I support fair trade, gay marriage, abortion rights, health care as a human right, alternative (non-nuclear) energy, and international diplomacy; but I also support decentralization, ending the War on Drugs, a massive reduction in military spending, freedom of association, anti-globalization, and the abolition of the federal income tax.

Basically, conservatives think I'm a crazy socialist and liberals think I'm a crazy libertarian. What does it matter, anyway?
