Just Curious

Recommended Posts

I'd consider myself liberal or center-left on political issues. I do like some policies of our right wing party, especially in regards to Defence.

Having said that however, it should be noted for my American friends that the political right in Canada , ironically called the Conservative Party, would probably be considered more center or moderate than right in America.

At least that's how I read it.

 

 

P.S.- I hope you don't mind the Canadian perspective DW. :lol:

I don't like labels either but the bottom line is that most folks have either a liberal view of things or the opposite.  

 

And no one says you cannot be a fence sitter like Volt. :)

And I ain't no fence sitter either!! If I have an opinion on something important,,folks will know exactly which side of the damn fence I'm on. :) v
Sorry, wrong words.....is middle of the road better?

 

Again, I find it funny that no one has called themselves as liberal, as if it were a dirty word.

I feel just as Paul does, I too hate labels and I feel like people throw that liberal word at people when they don't have the cajones to call them what they really would like to. If you have a differing opinion then you must be a "liberal" a tree hugger, blah blah blah. Its ridiculous. I actually voted for Bush the first time around.. but because I don't like the job he's done, don't support the invasion of Iraq, and DO NOT like the thought of him trying to tinker with the constitution over gay marriage I am now get that liberal title. He fooled me the first time around, he will not do it again. I am not a democrat or republican, I am NOT a conservative or liberal and don't appreciate being called any of the above. I am my own person and think for myself, and I personally think this kind of garbage is what keeps our country in a turmoil and at each others throats for no reason other than they have differing political views. I've saw both sides of the fence be extreme about some really dumb things so I choose to vote on whomever tells the most convincing lies at this point.

Sorry for not being clear v , was referring to society in general these days in regards to being politically correct.

 

I knew from past threads that it wasn't your cup o tea , mine either.

 

 

DW , hypothetical question . If there were two different people running for the Presidency of the U.S. and you thought that the Democratic candidate was better suited for the job , would you vote for that person ?

No admitted liberals yet even though there are plenty to go around. It certainly must be a dirty word no one wants to fess up to it. :lol::mrgreen:

Yes, as I have in the past.

 

Back to the question at hand. :lol:

I find the words right wing and conservative just as dirty when thrown at me. The point is some of us choose to have NO LABEL. Some of us have nothing to "fess up to" we choose not to be a part of any of that labeling crap.

I take that as the first reluctant liberal vote. :lol:

I made my point Deuces and you are not going to label me as much as you keep trying to tell some of us what we are without knowing us or how we vote. You are welcome to sport your little title but don't try to put one on me.

The question being who is a "conservative" nothing else was asked. Apparently not many consider themselves "conservative"

 

I know I don't consider myself conservative, nor liberal, nor left, nor right............... I have differing views on many things, a great number of them in fact.

 

I have extreme views on subjects that fall on both sides of the fence, and many that sit right ontop of it. I have the ability to change my mind also. Oh dear a person who can change their mind. What was tha label for that one? :lol::rolleyes:

 

People don't dislike labels because they think they are dirty words or anything else. Most people don't like labels because they don't think they fit your or anyone elses "predefined" molds.

 

Based on my previous post and some of the things I said I supported, not knowing anything else what mold would you have cast me in?

lib·er·al ( P ) Pronunciation Key (lbr-l, lbrl)

adj.

 

1) Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.

2) Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

 

Looking at these definitions I would say I am a liberal.

 

But I do not like to be put into any catagory.

I don't often agree with Bruce or anyone else for that matter.

 

But I pretty much agree with that quote...

To be honest, I don't know what defines a person as conservative, liberal (although I did just read those two descriptions), left or right wing. I have been wondering about it a lot lately, as I find myself listening to the Sean Hannity radio show almost every day. When I vote, I just take each issue individually and vote according to how I feel about it. I most certainly wouldn't vote with my party if I didn't agree with their view on something. Does that make sense? So what does that make me? :blink::blushing:
