Weren't you supposed to have been banned or sumthin?

If you agree with everything that the party you vote for represents, that's a bad sign.

Most people will naturally not fit their party's profile in some way.

Welcome to the club. You're somewhat of a libertarian Republican. ;)

surely you aren't the only one like that. I assume that very few people actually fit the rigid stereotype of a single political party.

I feel that way at times.

They, too, have a stereoype. Quite a few, in fact.

Few people really fit neatly into some political label.

Are you really a conservative? Those views sound fairly liberal to me.

So, what, social-liberal and fiscal-concervative?

Pretty much any one who isn't a hardline conservative will not fit the stereotype.. The mainstream Republican party for the past 10 years has radicalized and turned batsh!t crazy..

You're not unusual, but your party has been hijacked by lunacy. I know a lot of the people in that Young Republican's group have similar views to yours.

To me it seems like the majority of the young republicans have embraced libertarian-ism, though I wouldn't say that's much better..

Nah sounds like you're either libertarian or moderate libertarian, which is what all Republicans should be. Social conservatism is a disgrace.

Just because he's against those things doesn't mean he's libertarian.

He's just not "socially" conservative.

Sounds like you're just a product of your environment.

You may just be a conservative when it comes to the economy and stuff like that but with social issues you are more liberal.

I'm with you on all that.

probably, maybe, most likely: no. I doubt you are the only one. it's not that rare for people to break conformity to a stereotype.

Sure the commonalities you share with fellow conservatives outnumber the divergneces, or what differences you may have with the common conservative is pretty inconsequential; seeing as you still identify yourself as a conservative. that really doesn't make you special.

#24 Posted by ghoklebutter (19327 posts) -
Probably not. I know conservatives like you IRL.

I'm generally strongly left but: Welfare should be scrapped Illegal imigrants should be deported and companies employing them prosecuted Flat tax for all Not sure that goes down very well with people on the left.

I'm some unholy mixture of libertarian, conservative, (probably closest to classical liberal), but LOL @ those suggestions.
