Let's see if other little things tend towards conservative or liberal.

We know the typical traits of what defines liberal or conservative. Usually opinions on abortion, gay marriage, PA, size of government, etc. But I wanna know if other little things tend towards one way or another. Say vegetarianism. Are more vegetarians liberal or conservative? What about attachment parenting, spanking, breastfeeding, recycling, vaccinating, how much you dis/like animals, work or SAH, home/private/public schooling, or organic feeding? If you do any of these, which do you consider yourself? If there are other topics anyone else would like to add to see if there are trends, feel free =)

  • Let's see. I consider myself a moderate conservative. Not a vegetarian, non-AP, pro-spanking (although I prefer my DH to do it), totally pro-breastfeeding (though not as die hard as some people I've seen on here), we recycle, we vaccinate (although I'm considering delayed vaccinations for my 2nd baby), not a huge animal fan (then again, I didn't grow up with pets), I work and prefer it that way (if we could afford it, DH would stay home), for schooling I'm looking at either a private school or charter school, as for organics, I buy them when I can (especially fruits & veggies) but a lot of the grocery stores don't have a good selection and the closest Whole Foods is 30 minutes away. I also don't do extended rear facing and I have done CIO on one or 2 rare occasions.

  • I home school, did attachment parenting, do not spank, I breastfed, I recycle, I vaccinate, we eat very little meat, but not fully vegetarian, my husband works outside the home, I work inside the home. We are HUGE animal lovers and support many animal protection agencies. We are Pagan, support gay rights, against aid to illegal immigrants, we don't like guns, but support a person's right to have one. We wash our produce, support the death penalty, and abortion, as long as it's not federally funded. We are for legalizing medical marijuana use. I could go on, and on. We feel we are pretty liberal, but also middle of the road at times.
