I do not. I'm NOT conservative nor liberal. I'm conservative in economic and foreign policy while being extremely liberal in social issues. I supported Romney because I don't feel Barack came through on the social reform he promised 4 years ago.

I think my liberalism in social issues is precisely WHY I'm so stunned and disgusted right now.
Social issues like...the death penalty?

Yep...a pro-death penalty, demeaning to women, self-admitted homophobe, but who thinks people have the right to live their own lives. You're the very definition of an "extreme social liberal."

And don't worry, I won't return all that neg rep you're giving me. I may even send you some positive rep again, because you're such a bleeding heart and a nice guy, championing the cause of social liberalism with every post.
