How Liberal / Conservative Are You?

Aack, i caved. I found this questionairre on Elwing's blog. *Brian points at Elwing.* It's all her fault.

Of course it's not XHTML valid. So i'll have to fix that.

I can't agree on liberal vs conservative

I really can't. Bush isn't a conservative, he's the closest thing to a tax and spender the republicans have. It's fascinating that the Republican party has him up front, because he's absolutely not conservative where it counts to run a government. He's an idealogue on the social side, which I suppose they like.

Nor do I think that Liberal is a fair label to the Democrats. A democratic congress and president made certain that we aren't, as a country, spending more than we bring in via taxes. That's a fiscally conservative postition.

Nothing sums them up simply to me, so I don't know what to say there.
