Liberal state for me. Hawaii is probably the most liberal state in the union. I don't know why California is consider the most liberal.

Libertarian, though that choice wasn't up there, so I went with "conservative leaning." And why? Because, by far and large, conservative laws can be undone rather easily. If people one day decide that Marijuana should be legal, pass a law, and it suddenly is legal. Even big-government conservative stuff is relatively easy to repeal, but not so for social welfare programs. No matter how broken Social Security is, we can't just cut it off. I fear a socialized health care system would be even worse. So, if I have to deal with politics I disagree with, I'd rather vote Republican.

Liberal. PA is too conservative. I'm sick of people here implying that I "chose" my current "lifestyle" and should not be entitled to equal civil rights as a result.
