Just kinda interested where the people lie on the scale of left to right, not politically or economically- but socially.

Personally I'm very liberal. I believe in equality for all, abortion, gay rights, same sex marriage, women's rights, anti racism, religious tolerance, anti immigration laws (albeit this is unfeasible >_<) etc. I see national boundaries as antiquated and I have no particular pride in my country besides our cultural heritage (our literature and music mostly). I think it's so unfair I have a relatively easy and carefree life due to the random chance of me being born in a well off country- and so why should I be against or begrudge anyone trying to make the best life they can for themselves- as long as this doesn't come from harming others.

I just don't understand conservatism or general social right wing belief. The far right is the thing that makes me the most angry in the world I think.

Where do other people lie? I don't mean what political party do you support, but just what do you believe in.

Also when I say abortion I'm hazy on this one. Before the baby is alive I believe in abortion, but after I'm not sure if I consider it murder or not.

Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life trying to make ends meet you're a slave to money then you die

My family has always been right wing in terms of politics, but I see myself as much more liberal socially, like you. I agree with pretty much everything you said.

Thanks for the awesome signature Buck! :D

We're not so different, you and I...

I do believe in people being equal and everyone having their rights. (and all the other stuff you said)

Can't wait to hear more from others... :)

Yeah pretty much everyone in my family of the generation above mine is to the right too- maybe not my mum. Very frequent arguments with my grandma about her views >_> Leading her to term me (in the same breath) a communist and an anarchist XD

Definitely in the same boat (which is nice, I feel like we've seen a lot of right-wingers recently). We were taking cute little quizzes in government that size up your political opinion, and for most I ended up being a Libertarian. I can roll with that.

So yeah, i'd say liberally i'm really social. Definitely support abortion, women's rights, equal rights for anyone really, same-sex marriage (or no limitations) on marriage.

I just honestly cannot wrap my brain around the thoughts of the most extreme right wingers on social issues. I try really hard to think about it but just can't.

I'm exactly the same, I don't think anyone, especially politicians have any right to say who you can and can't marry and if you view the debate on abortion in these forums you'll see that clearly I support a woman's right to have one should they need to.

I'm more conservative. Most liberals are whack jobs, and some conservatives are too. I mainly just believe that you can't throw money at a problem to fix it...

it's funny how most of the responses here say they are one or the other because of a couple of things, but have any of you compared the two, perhaps you are like me and down the middle. I don't think you can say you are left or right just because of 1 or 2 things, 2 be one or the other you need to agree with most if not everything of either side if you only agree with 1/10 of them then your not like them and if that applies to both then your down the middle

I can post a side by side list if anyone wants.

I'm rather socially conservative. It's an awkward to be in this position at a well accredited university atmosphere haha. My social conservatism essentially stems from my religious beliefs; you all know the deal.

I would consider myself in between. Both sides have their idiots in my eyes. I believe in gay rights, right for abortions, and women's rights and such. However, that same side also wants more gun control. Which I am a strong supporter for gun rights.

Socially however, I consider myself more liberal.

I am very much socially liberal for the same reasons. I think some conservative points of views, such as anti gay-marriage, are really out of date and that in order to move forward in general we must be willing to be open-minded and not be confined to tradition and old-school dogma.
