I just took one of those facebook quizzes...are you a Republican or Democrat....and it said I'm a conservative democrat. (sobs) I knew I shouldn't have answered yes to "Are you for gay marriage in all states?" And "not sure" to the abortion question. Oh the indignity of it all.

people tend to be more liberal than they think they are.

Part of the problem is the connotations the word "liberal" carries to some people politically speaking, IMO.

Conservatives are liberals when it comes to their own desires, just not others.

Sounds like you need to take the quiz at the Libertarian website.

http://www.theadvocates.org/quizp/index.html

Tried that one and I answered M to almost all questions. It said I was for big government, but its to vague. For example, it said should there be laws regarding sex between consenting adults. Consenting adults imo should not be allowed to have sex in a public area in full view of everyone else, especially if they are ugly. :)

Had it added the phrase "in privacy" I would have agreed.

Or as another example, I don't believe someone should be allowed to publish the design of a nuclear weapon on the Internet, so I am not for complete freedom from government restrictions.

You are in good company, a Jeffersonian Democrat is more conservative than the neo-cons of today

Yeah it's a tad too basic isn't it? I answered M to a few also. I think it's mainly to show that you may not be what you think you are politically.

Actually I'm just the opposite. I'm all for your right to kiss another man, just ask that you respect my boundaries.

See? That's why the test told you what you needed to know.

But I don't want to be a democrat. Conservatives have all the babes from Fox. Liberals have Helen Thomas and Bella Abzug and Hillary Clinton and the hags from The View. No wonder there are so many gay men on this side.

Be what you want to be, polls don't mean a thing. :)

FWIW, I agree with the Libertarians on one or two issues, the Democrats on a few more, and agree with the Republicans on many of the rest. I am probably 50% republican, 35% democrat, 10% libertarian, and 5% none of the above.
