You forgot to add "Don't know". There is a significant number of people who apparently don't know their own political beliefs.

This became obvious here in Washington state when we had to change our primary system this year. Previously you did not have to declare a party when voting in the primary. It was an open primary. You could vote for any of the party races and mix up your party choices on the ballot. Now you have to declare a party and vote for only that parties candidates in the primary. Lots of people raised a big fuss. Apparently these people have no political conviction and have no idea what party they should belong to. They have no idea what side of the fence they belong on and like to graze on both sides.

My conclusion after listening to the complaints about the new primary system is that the people who are complaining are stupid. Too stupid to be voting in a primary where the idea is to pick a parties candidate for the general election. Too stupid to know if they are a Republican, Democrat, or Libertarian. Too stupid to know the differences between Republicans and Democrats and Libertarians.

Well, I've looked at the numbers and according to this ultra-accurate poll, there is not a single person on the face of the earth who is liberal or conservative.


Edit: And yeah that's dumb (what John said). Not requiring a person to declare before voting in a primary allows anyone to vote for a candidate from a party they eventually will not vote for (or simply all parties). Also a republican could vote for the weaker democratic candidate (or vice versa) so weaken the "opposing" ticket.

LIBERAL! Yea, LIBERAL! Left wing liberal!

Fiscal Conservitive
Social Liberal
Constitutional Conservitive

Like Bugman, I am also a mix. Conservative about some things, and liberal about others. And free to choose on each issue individually. I don't need a political party to tell me how to think.

Oh, and I get to change my mind too, even though I'm not running for office!

Allright, alright, I admit it...

I don't agree with EVERYTHING "Liberal" either...

I've had some pretty nasty fights with some PC Politically Correct liberals in my time.

Generally, I'm on the left when it comes to things like funding education, social services, respecting labor unions, access to health care, bread and butter things...

But I guess my appreciation of first person shooter video games, topless bars, cigars and alcohol keeps me out of the PC wing of the liberal world.

And as much as I don't agree with conservatives like Limbaugh and Hannity, I have to admit that I have tuned into their shows quite a lot because it's totally entertaining and often really funny, and sometimes I'll hear something that makes me think "sure, I understand that," and honestly, I'll agree with an odd thing or two.

When you think about it, the word "Liberal" has been demonized so much these past 15 years, that there are a lot of people (like me) who are wearing it as a badge of honor. The American left, in whatever form it took, emerged from past labor movements as a voice for the working class--not everyone agrees, but that's how I see it--and that's one of the reasons I call myself a liberal...

Anyway, back to the fights! There is an election going on! Everyone is wired! (as it should be...)
