    I think it depends on what you consider conservative or liberal. For example, there are economic conservatives/liberals, social conservatives/liberals, etc.

    Personally, my philosophy is not completely conservative or liberal.

    Furthermore, some people would consider it very liberal to adhere to certain ideals - some would consider it conservative.

    I like to take things on a case-by-case basis.

    My take was most people meant Democrat-like. I did, anyway.

    I'm not an SPD freak, if that is what you mean. Also not a CDU freak. Actually there is hardly any party I like...they are all weird and all make promises they cannot/do not intend to keep.

    Yes, okay, but they have some pretty weird ideas, too. Have to admit I like the thing with lower taxes, though. Paying 50% taxes really blows.

    Every SJ I know is a liberal. At least, socially so. I could see them leaning to the right economically. I think the social leftism comes from the SJ focus on justice and fairness. WE WANT EQUALITY! Of course, I could be horrifically wrong. I don't know enough SJs.

    What exactly do you mean by Liberals? Much of what we consider "conservatives" in America could acurately be termed Classical Liberals while "liberals" are Social Democrats.

    There's also the difference between Conservative(as in principles) and conservative(as in general instinct). Same with Liberal and liberal.

    When I think of a "Conservative", I have in mind men like Edmund Burke, Joesph de Maistre, John Calhoun, Russell Kirk, etc.

    In many ways I could be considered a Revolutionary Conservative; although I have reservations about the term.

    You, sir, are a NERD. But in a good way. I may be a liberal democrat, but I have huge respect for conservatives like Eisenhower.

    When I say liberal and conservative, I usually mean socially. E.g. liberals support gay rights and a woman's right to choose. Not sure about what the creator of this forum meant, though.

    I'm a left-leaning centrist. I tend to vote Democrat and am registered as one. It is funny. All of the people that I know that are SJs are hard-core Republicans, although I do live in OC. That might be why.
