NC can not ever make up its mind. For some reason it seems that at the state level it is one thing, but on the national level it is often something else.

But I would consider my self Red for the most part.

Voted #8 - although I consider myself more Independent/Libertarian than "Red."

I live in a blue district in a bipolar state that calls itself red. It is divided right down the middle.

I'm a Constitutionalist, whatever color that is. Individual liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, and military for national defense only.

In my opinion, the definitions of liberal and conservative are skewed. One's liberalism or conservatism is not based on personal conviction and behavior. It has to do with how one perceives the role of government.

I've been re-examining my political ideas, and they don't fit neatly into either blue or red. Smile

I keep forgetting which is red and which is blue. I think I'm in a red state and I'm read, but blue is my preferred color...and I think I can remember that those crazy liberals get the nicer color...

But colors aside, I am in Georgia, which is a conservative state, and I'm very conservative.


Blessings,

I voted red in a blue state but I don't fall into the red category in the traditional sense. I am more libertarian (not social). I don't agree with foreign wars either which puts me at odds with traditional red. But I go red more often than not.

This is also my opinion:

and this is how I lean:
Quote:

However, I am a big fan of exceptions to the "rules," especially when it comes to truly helping the poor (such as limited public works programs where things are actually produced) or fighting for those around the world under true oppression (WWII, Afghanistan). When the cause is righteousness and it is administered wisely, I believe it will exalt our nation.

Okay. Hot Topics, right? Sorry, Janet. I feel that your exception, especially on foreign wars, is a very slippery (and very steep/fast) slope. Our children and grandchildren are paying this price (in blood and onerous taxes), now and in the far future. I have been looking into history lately, especially WWII, and it was a continuation of WWI (a very foolish war) which produced an arduous cold war for so many years. Intervention has far-reaching consequences, even when we think we're doing good. So, only national defense of our borders as stated by the Constitution and the Founding Fathers.

Okay. Let me have it. Laughing

The first thing that came to mind: a slippery slope is not a good reason NOT to make a legitimate rescue. In my mind, legitimate rescues should be made with climbing gear attached so that we don't slide the rest of the way down. And just because I know that someone will slide willfully down the rest of the slope is not a reason for me not to want to attempt a legitimate rescue. The right thing to do now is the right thing to do regardless of anyone else's wrongful intentions for the future.

I like this, Janet. Smile Smile

I live in a blue state, and lean conservatively on most issues, however, my political leanings cannot be pigeonholed into any one category.

Thank you all for voting in the pole and replies. Politics is new for me and I keep seeing graphs and charts about red & blue. I don't think it helpful! I'd rather read a longer article explaining positions, it just seems a waist of ink. Confused
FYI, I'd like more choices. Wink
