I'm having a hard time determining how to label myself politically. Not that labeling is a good thing, but I'd like to know others opinions out of curiosity.

What I support:

Pro-Capitalism
Pro-Choice (with boundaries to encourage responsibility)
Pro-Environment
Pro-Gun Control
Anti-Welfare
Anti-Illegal Immigration (we need to crack down badly)
Pro-Education (willing to increase taxes for education/libraries etc.)
Anti-Affirmative Action
Pro-Death Penalty
Pro-Gay Marriage
Pro-Separation of Church and State

Well, what do you think?

Why would I be confused? Because my opinions don't fit a certain mold? Because I look at things on an issue by issue basis? The only thing I am confused about is how others would perceive me, and the fact that I can never find a politician with the same beliefs as mine, which I wouldn't consider extreme in any way.

Lighten up...

What is the difference? Most folks have a mix of beliefs. You have to prioritize them, and vote for the person and party impacting those issues most important to you. I'm sure the issues don't have equal weight.

Judging from the resume and quest for judgement I'd label you a 'political *******'. But if we were to meet I might change my mind.

Yup, lighten up. But also this is a discussion board so I wonder what you'd like to hear from others: how they perceive themselves, perhaps, as compared to how you perceive yourself?

Of each issue you have listed, which is the MOST important to you in this election? That's a good place to start and try to figure you out.

Don't label yourself at all and you'll be cooler. I would do the same but my opinionations are sadly more easily labeled.
