any one for same gender "marriage" is a liberal.
If there are 10 issues, and they are conservative on 9, but liberal on gay marriage, then 9 out of 10 makes them conervative

I see that a lot on CD. People like to declare what other posters are even if the poster says otherwise.

What you are saying is irrelevant to the topic.

Exactly right. Until we have a parliamentary-style guvmint, made up of the "social conservative party", the "constitutional conservative party", the "fiscal conservative party", etc., all this goofy RW "hairsplitting" is basically irrelevant.

BTW, interesting that the aggregate wealth of the "most lib-rul cities" could obviously buy the most conservative ones several times over!

Orange, CA is conservative?

I worked there for five years and couldn't wait to get back home to L.A. County.

Seemed like I was surrounded by Democrats.

Orange sure seemed liberal to me, then again, the city spans a big area - maybe I worked in the wrong part of town.

I did like visting the Orange Circle, and any 19th century architecture buff needs to visit Orange to see the period houses.

I was surprised about Hialeah, FL being on #4 spot, because it is a minority city where a large percentage of population are on welfare, and crime is high, and no one speaks English.

Orange isn't far from Santa Ana, which is the biggest city in the United States with the least "green space'(parks or trees).

It also is home to a large illegal immigrant population, has been led by Mayor Miguel Pulido for nearly 20 years, and is heavily Democratic.

It is also the heart of supposedly "conservative" Orange County - and among the two best places in the U.S.A to find authentic Mexican taco trucks - the other being Seattle, Washington(home of the most diverse zip code in the U.S.A). http://southseattle.komonews.com/new...se-zip-code-us

I know quite a few conservatives who voted for Obama. Not hardcore right wing, but run of the mill mainstream conservatives.
