So are you an independent or a consecrative? Or liberal? Most liberals are anti-oil, anti-drilling, anti-logging, anti-hunting, anti-gun.. Many liberals believe in the socialist way of life..

If earthquakes are an issue, ask the guy upstairs, they been happening for millions of years, not just the last 20 years. What other problems?

That is only a ridiculous stereotype, no more true then all conservatives are hard core, right wing, racist, religious bigots. People toss around these terms that are all but meaningless in real terms, and real issues for real people. It is an effective way of stopping any serious thought or discourse about finding solutions for real challenges that face all of us. I grew up in a state that was fairly "liberal or progressive" historically, yet most of the people I knew were anything but anti-oil, gun, drilling, logging...they made their livings in these industries and hunting/fishing was a way of life.

I agree with Freezengirl, especially about issues in that state. When it comes to natural resources, most people's view really depends on their connection to the specific resource in question. In some cases, a very conservative person may be locally anti-mining because their interests or water supply could potentially be impacted by mining activities. A more liberal person might support local logging plans because they have participated in the process and have an local economic stake.
