Refining Your Political Philosophy

Chapter One
What is Your Political Philosophy?

If you were asked, "What is your political philosophy?" how would you reply?

Would you say, "I'm a Republican", "I'm a Democrat", "I'm a Liberal", "I'm a Conservative", or would you say, "I just vote for the best candidate"? You might even say, "I don't really have a philosophy of my own. I've never thought about it."

If you say you're a Liberal or Conservative, then exactly what is your philosophy? Without simply reciting a list of issues you support or oppose, in 50 words or less, tell me what liberal or conservative means to you. Remember the old saying, words don't have meaning, people do.
