Conservatives vs. Liberals
There are also conservatives and liberals on the political spectrum. Their views are opposite of each other but not out of the mainstream. Conservatives believe in free markets, limited government, self-reliance in economics, and traditional values. Where as liberals believe in strong government involvement to help people and provide economic security. Liberals also believe in personal freedom from the government.
Moderates share view points of both conservatives and liberals. Their views may change depending on the issue at hand.
Me on the Political Spectrum
I tend to be more conservative on most issues. On some issues I am liberal, but most often I am conservative.
I am conservative on the issue of gay marriage. I believe that all forms of gay marriage are wrong and should be illegal.
On the issue of whether or not criminals that have committed murder should be put to death or not I am conservative. I believe that they should be put to death for their actions.
On the issue of whether or not we should have a universal health care plan or not, I am liberal. I believe that we should have universal health care available for those who need it.
