Makes sense. Except as I've gotten older, I have wanted more to be away from cities and more in rural areas;still, cities and all they offer are something that I love . . . To visit.

Well according to this, I'm very liberal - accept I want a farm but would settle for a suburban community garden lol

I'm a suburban dweller. I love it!

Quoting RandRMomma: I agree with most everything the "consistent liberals" agreed on according to the poll except the housing. If I had things my way, I'd live in a larger home in the suburbs. I don't mind living in a more rural area either.

 I don't understand the need for DEFINITIONS  of liberal and conservative

I think is so much ado about nothing...

it's like pointing out that vegetarians are different from from meat eaters.

Quoting jllcali: Calm down. If I had taken a picture of the entry in my dictionary and posted it, would that have made you happy? There are drawbacks to that, such as pics not going through and a lack of a link or source everyone reading my replies could follow to see if it was altered. Do you have a problem with any of the definition listed? Did you notice there are links to other references? One of them being Merriam-Webster. I chose the site to copy and paste from because it was a plain text site, and did not have a bunch of excess stuff on the page that would make C&Ping on my phone a pain in the ass. I have no idea why posting links for definitions of liberal and conservative would upset anyone. It's puzzling.
Quoting jobseeker:

 so what's your point?

and do you really think Wiki is = Websters?

Interesting.

The only things I differ on, compared to what it claims in this article, going off of being more liberal than conservative, are that I prefer to live closer to the 'outdoors' and don't mind the small town aspect.

Quoting momtoscott: I definitely fell into the consistent lib category, even though I consider myself a moderate.
Quoting Momniscient: I thought so too. Also... I'm fairly consistent in the lib category.
Quoting momtoscott: Interesting differences, consistent with what I observe on CM.

This.  Exactly.

Well good for you. I don't understand why anyone would be upset by the definitions of terms related to the topic.
