Alright well here is how it goes. I am trying to find out how many people here under the ages of 18 support the conservative party, or liberal party. If you are over 18, this poll means nothing to you. If you are an independant, this poll means nothing to you. If you are any other party besides conservative or liberal, this does not apply to you. If you could, tell reasons why you support your party. Ps. Please be honest.

Yes, conservative is usually republican. I'm conservative, but I suck at debating politics, so I'll stay outta this one.

Anyway. I was only 19 at the beginning of January, so my views haven't changed much since I was 18. And I 'm more of a Conservative than anything else, mainly because of their economic policies and supporting big business more. Labour's idea of running a country is to hike taxes as much as they can before a revolt. And Liberal spending policies don't seem to add up to me, so Conservative is where I'll go with my vote.
My family and I are liberal. I'm a liberal because of their support for equal rights, civil liberties, and peace. I also like the ideas of caring for the poor and unemployed (not slackers though). Instead of big business, I think government should support local bussinesses.
Many conservatives don't mind helping people, we just don't like helping people who don't take the time to help themselves. As for civil liberties, many differ on this. For me, I disagree with homosexuality but I don't care if they are married. I am more against the principle of homosexuality. I think it is wrong. I think the idea is disturbing. As for peace, both parties care for peace. The means used to create it is what seperates people. Many people think in order to create peace, you must enforce it. Others think you should be non-violent. I don't think you can achieve peace using non-violence in the human race. Many powerful leaders are power hungry and care only for themselves. Which is why I think even if Saddam didn't have any weapons, the war was justified just to get him out of power. And who is to say that he wouldn't aquire weapons in the future? How do we know he doesn't already have them, but they are baried under the ground out in the desert? Who knows what motives he would have with these weapons? There are too many what if's to take a chance with him. He needed to be out of power now. He was unstable. I could care less what anyone thinks, getting him and his regime out of power could have possibly saved countless hundreds and thousands of lives, not counting his own people that we saved from being raped, tortured, or killed by his ruthless regime.
I'm not saying conservatives don't care about these things, I'm just saying its more at the forefront of liberal policies. Certainly everyone is entitled to their opinions.
