I have a penchant for rejecting labels (you could say I have "label phobia"), so I'm personally less concerned with whether or not you self-identify as a "Conservative" (capital "C") than with whether you accept conservative (lowercase "c") ideas or identify with that line of thinking.

If I could pose the question back to you: Are you seeking a label, or to refine your thinking on the issues? If the latter, I could try to explain why I lean conservative on those issues, and perhaps that could help you to make up your mind.

What IAH said.

Its probably better if you just care about the issues, and if it applies identify your beliefs with a political mindset, but don't get hung up on being said political mindset.

some conservative views that I think help anybody: Pro traditional family values; CON Affirm. Action (which is racism in disguise) PRO gun rights (why rely on the cops?) and CON on the Big Government trying to stick their fat noses in our business. And also CON on the idea of being Socialist which is redistributing the Wealth that many people worked fairly and hard to acquire. CON Obama who is trying to do that and Create a Socialist Democracy. CON Obama Care which is gonna be a huge mess.

I couldn't care less about conservative/liberal labels. I tend to agree more with conservatives, but I don't always.

Why do you think I want more vacation days?
Besides, I'm conservative. Clearly I am rich already, so my family is fine.

My guess would be because you are thinking of the little chirruns....

Oh, ok, lol.
I'm an uber-conservative, but I am not rich.

- The erosion of morality and decline of values is real, and is also detrimental to society.
- Solutions that seek to alleviate injustice for individuals must also contemplate the survival of vital institutions in order to be overall effective.

Just research each issue on your own and vote for whatever side of the line you fall on. Just don't take a stand on an issue that your uninformed on just because your party happens to take a stand in that direction. A big reason that liberals agree with each other on nearly everything is because they're tribal and though they agree with the party on a few issues they decide to be ill informed on others and just side with their team. Conservatives do the same thing. It's human nature to be tribal. Just fight the urge to be tribal. Know that it's okay not to have an opinion on something, be yourself. If your not ignorant your views should change from one direction to another a lot before you turn 30, and this is a result of just becoming more informed. Don't become anything, just get more informed and be logical about your beliefs. Wherever you end up on those party lines, if you do end up on them, is where you end up.

I think it was a conservative who came up with the 401k and Roosevelts income caps that got people benefits so employers could get around the income caps.

No reason you should believe it except that in my opinion all those things I mentioned are just simple common sense. Racism is wrong even if its reverse. The government doesnt really care about you but is just a self-serving entity so it should be kept as small as possible. that's the GOP stance. Gun rights are part of America. Family values are the backbone of a good society. Gay marriage is NOT. Socialsim never works, it encourages laziness. If you look at the Values and Ideas of the Founding Fathers youll see they are way more in line with today's GOP and conservatives than they are with Obama's Socialism. But Im not trying to convert you and encourage you to research all this yourself. Also most liberals are hypocties. preaching one thing like fighting for the little guy but their really eltists. See Al Gore! LOL.
