For instance, I can agree with many conservative positions, but I can't agree with the idea that liberalism is a mental disorder.
Neither can I, both sides have very good points and both have their members who are so far gone that they forget that theirs is not the only opinion that counts.
That just tends to dehumanize people who disagree with the current conservative talking points.
Nothing to argue there, of course, any closed mind is a bad thing.
I believe in personal liberty, less government intrusion into my life. It seems to me it's the conservatives and the socialists who share the same goal - to get into my life and my wallet in order to control other people...
I consider myself a true conservative, I don't care what you do as long as it hurts no one else, same as the way you spend your money, do as you wish, and honestly, the only way to offend me is to speak of more regulation and intrusion. My own held beliefs:
1) anti-Federalist, states should be left alone to their own design and Federal should only control that which the founders considered to be their authority.
2) Constructionist- rights exist naturally and the only way to limit it is to prove extreme circumstances which would cause an immediate, provable threat to others.
