    Default can you tell if someone is a conservative or liberal by appearance?

    what would they look like out the public?

    I think those are extremist stereotypes. I think it's a safe bet that some liberals will dress...well...more like hippies or New Agers (I fall into this, probably, some of the time); or like they belong to some very obvious alternative lifestyle or sub-culture, like Goths. Yes, I would guess 99% of the people who look that way are quite liberal.

    I'd also guess that people who dress in a very traditional religious fashion ...long skirts, long hair, no-make up, very plain attire or old-fashioned "church dresses" for women, as well as burqas or other similar outfits in other cultures ...are conservative. Obviously. It actually might be more obvious with women than men, because conservative men could simply wear suits or other business attire that liberal men might wear while going to work.

    No, this is total bs.

    You can tell how uptight versus laid-back someone is sometimes by dress, but the political views? No.

    Lots of Democrats/liberals/probono lawyer etc. types dress in suits and "dress for power" or dress somewhat conservatively because of the professional realm. Lots of people who like the hipster or youthful look might be liberal as far as drugs or personal sexual or hygiene habits but are just as bigoted and narrow-minded and prejudiced as proper looking folks wearing ascots and polos. A lot of times dress is just aesthetics.

    It also depends on if you're asking about specific issue views or overall.

    As someone who has tried to help lobby and organize, you should never assume what someone's political leanings or views are by their style of dress. There are some good guesses I think you can make in certain instances, but I won't go there right now.

    Obvious Liberal Women are Obvious









    Obvious Conservative Women are Obvious







    But seriously...no other than that...probably not. Because there are liberals who go to church and stuff, too.

    I have black nails and I wear purple-on-black striped socks.

    What's so conservative about that?

    It is fairly obvious Johnny Ramone is conservative in this picture.

    You're also very open about being gay. Very open.

    But you consider yourself conservative? Is this in a fiscal sense? Do you see the financial rewards as being superior to your own social freedom?

    You make a very good point! Very good point.

    Ted Nugent, on the other hand, believes in being more obvious about it.
