Are you Liberal or Conservative, and why?

I'm liberal because I believe everybody has the right to choose what they want to do with their lives. I just don't believe in suicide is okay, and that it's their choice. other than that, I'm almost completely liberal.

I,m a conservative because I believe in less government and less government intervention into my life. I don't want government help are handouts I want left alone. I want my guns to protect myself and my family and to remove tyrants if it comes to that.I believe everyone that can work needs to work even if there picking up trash on the side of the road. Help if its ever needed should come from the church are the community . Can go on and on some of my brothers will finish this.

And because we want the money we work for.

But not all people believe in the church, you seem to forget that. My Dad, for instance, hates religion and my Mom was raised Catholic but never believed in it. That leaves me the only Christian in a family of Atheists.

But I do agree about the whole government thing. But they should interfere when there is abuse, murder, or something serious going on.

This country was founded on Christian principals , that is what has made us the greatest country the world has ever seen.A long with Gods blessing .But the people are turning away from him. An God said we would and he will curse us and if we don't come back to him we will fall.

I love your view, Bigguy. Just like mine. But, God doesn't curse, does He? I thought when someone turns away from Him, He just leaves them alone and lets whatever happens happen.

Mad Marcus. You are confusing swearing with a curse.

Taryn, if your family was in need Christians would help them whether atheist or not!

@Bigred: I'm not talking about cursing with words, I'm talking about the literal thing.

madmarkus If you will read Deuteronomy 28: If you can see he is talking about us.

Read the whole Bible. Technically God doesn't curse us - we curse ourselves. The good news is Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins and any curses we have put upon ourselves can be forgiven by Christ's blood. The book of Job is a great example.

I believe in God and Jesus but I'm ashamed to say I don't know much about them or the Bible, and I'm having trouble being saved. I also have the slightest bit of doubt in me of them, but I don't want to have that. I want to believe fully and have a relationship with Jesus.

Sorry if I seem to be whining but this is the first time I've ever said that.

Nothing to be ashamed about I to was in your same shoes. The man in me or pride kept me from being saved. One night I walked out on my front porch and was looking up into the sky at all the stars and I ask God to give me a sign that he was there and that he was coming back. I was expecting to see nothing are at most a falling star. But what I saw was like a explosion in space, like a star had exploded right where I was looking. I got saved the next Sunday.

What do you mean by "choose what they want to do with their lives"? What is your definition of that?

I'm conservative (tea partier) for too many reasons to name.

My goodness, My dear Marcus, These are normally questions you and I avoid... Being that you and I have similar views on many questions we can help, but very 180% views on others. One of the reasons I respect and admire you. We are not to judge. We are to help. To TarynYay: You look very similar to a very nice women I would like to have to cut my hair within the week. Truly amazing how small this world can be. No matter where you are geographically located, you have a point that people may seem to forget.
Don't Place Judgement on One.
Don't Place Judgement on Others.
Allow all into their own space.
Don't say words like: Should, Could, Would,, all these degrade you and your stance on your opinion.
About the tea party. I happen to like Earl Grey Tea, with honey. If I'm feeling dec

Merlin, are you saying I'm judging? I'm not meaning to. I only asked her what her definition of freedom is.

By the way, the tea party (or TEA party for "Taxed Enough Already") is a political party. I was saying I'm of that party. I guess while we're at it, I'll name my favorite teas: blueberry, pomegranate and acai tea, lemon tea, green tea, sweet tea, sweet cream tea, and Irish breakfast tea. Haha.

By the way, I don't normally avoid these questions.

I Don just came home from working a hard day and being that the weather is a little fowl, I'm amazed it took him so long to come home at all. At any rate, I'm glad he's home. I must go get some cough drops. You take care Marcus, and when I'm feeling better, I'll get back to you and know your view does count! :)

I don't know who you mean by "he", but okay. Feel better.

Wow! Marcus, I am on your side for these reasons. I believe you are strong about your ambitions. I believe you stand for what you believe in, but you are open to suggestion. (I do believe you are not mad all the time and want to better yourself.) I would like to answer and /or suggest things to others that will help better them.

I word this because I would like not to change you, but for you to discover things about yourself.. Ex: I Have this terrible cough. It has taken me a lot of effort to even come up here and share with you, what do you suggest? Now, I didn't put this up and out because I am sick.. If you stop and think how can yo help me instead of worring about allthe others can you? Or if you can't can yo suggest somewhere I can?

I'm very sorry, I didn't understand anything you just said. Could you rephrase?

Liberal or Anarchist?
Your defining statment is confusing me.
What did you vote in the last election?
I'm a Libertarian and believe in the equality of all. That the rights given to you by the constitution should be exercised without restraint, unless it infringes on the rights of another. That the Government should be as small as possible, and leashed as a servant of the people.
That by definition makes me Conservative. I know you're only 13, but do a bit of research on what the terms you're tossing around, really mean; not what the kids at school, MTV or the news say.

I have put research into this. Not thorough, but enough to where I understand the concepts.

Government is the Only thing in this country that can limit our freedom.
Conservatives believe in smaller and less powerful government.
Liberals believe in bigger, more powerful Government to "help" us.

Personally I'm a very progressive and tolerant person and believe whole heartedly in equality. Our government terrifies me with "Help", like the patriot act, affiative action and Obama-care.
Any number of shiny lies and political promises can be told to pass big government legislation... But once passed, those same policies restrict and flat out take away our rights and equality.

I am a Conservative because they believe in creating prosperity to lift people out of poverty. Liberals believe in dividing prosperity so all of us are equally poor.

You have every opportunity guaranteed by the Constitution to become rich. The outcome is up to you and luck. No promises there. Life isn't fair. It is what YOU make it.
Report as
Taryn, what Bigred said, plus, the rich aren't taking anything away from anyone else. What wouldn't be fair is if the rich were allowed to say "Give me your money" and people had to give it to them. That's not the case.

Mad Marcus it is the case with the left. They want to put their hands in our pockets and steal our money because after all that is fair to spread the wealth around instead of earring it themselves

They say we are all liberals when we are young but as we grow older and live in the real world we become conservative. I think that is because when we are young we have so many hopes and dreams and think we can solve all the worlds problems if people would just get along and let others do as they like (without harming others). As we start paying bills and taxes or raising children or working our way up in our careers we realize life and people don't always do what we think or want. Plus we get tired of government always meddling in our life's like they know better than we do. We just want to be left alone and get sick of taking on the burden of "helping" people who could very well help themselves. We have our own wants and needs and they may not be yours or the governments. We want to keep the money we earn but are happy to help fund things that are needed in society like roads, police, military, fire depts etc. We want to keep government local where we can have a say Not big federal govt. where they can't possibly know my exact needs or wants. I believe our founders where all conservative and believed in a necessary but small Federal gov. like I do.
