How do you know if you're Conservative, Moderate or Liberal?

When a survey asks what political party I identify with, that's an easy question...but then they want to know if I'm Conservative, Moderate or Liberal. What does that actually mean? I usually answer Moderate to be on the safe side. I might have a Liberal view on one issue; but a Conservative view on another. Is that what they are asking? For example, let's say the issue is granting amnesty for illegal alliens. I'm totally opposed to that. Does that make me a Conservative on that issue? Would appreciate any feedback.

I believe that we can not radicalized and set an option and ready.
Each issue should be discussed and chosen the best option.

there are areas.. if you are conservative on one economic factor you tend to be on all economic issues. but you might be liberal on the social issues or foreign affairs. and again liberal on some social issues usually means liberal on most or all

Before I start on your opinion topic , let me remark that I am maxed out for the current month of September , so please do not return the favor by reciprocating and doing my opinion topics for me . As to the opin ion to pic at hand , one problem is that there are multiple flavors of conservative , social conservative , fiscal conservative , national security conservative , with many of the so-called neocons being national security hawks who are liberal on other issues

They usually want to know how you are registered. Especially now, because many people feel like you do, divided on many issues. It is almost impossible to be 100% of anything anymore.

When you put it that way (and by using your example), I am in total agreement with you. I also feel that I am liberal on some issues and conservative on others.

I've wondered the same thing and I'm like you when it comes to this issue. Unless a specific topic is under deliberation, I choose the "moderate" label. Like you, I have different views on different issues, so I figure that they probably end up balancing out on either end of the scale!

i think you basically know what you are. I feel that I'm a moderate and not too conservative and not too liberal. I think everyone except the really far right and far left (which you know if you are) knows they would be called a moderate. Liberal has come to mean far left and conservative has come to mean the far right. I don't think it used to be that differentiated before. We all stray a little more right or left depending on the issue and our own moral judgment. I usually say I'm a moderate. If they ask me party---it's Democrat although I certainly wouldn't be against voting for a non-democrat if I felt it truly was the best pick!!

I agree that I do not like being labelled one way or another since my views change depending on the issue.

I have an even better answer for ya on this topic, just tell them what I tell them. I am Canadian, so that finishes any political debates anyone would ever want to start with me. I do not mean to make little of the various political parties of the states, but every country has the same differences, I just do not like to get too much into it on toluna in case I upset someone who is politically minded.
