You asked Pops. I answered.<quoted text>Too simple of an answer. Cop out. Get specific pls
I don't really engage in the "liberal"/"cons ervative" labeling game all that much.
That may be why you don't like my answer.
I find that people usually have varying opinions on different issues, and that often, they say one thing in public and do another in private (i.e. espousing an anti-abortion/pro family political position while encouraging your lover to get an abortion, all while being a married, elected official).
So I just don't think the label game is all that important.
Empathy though, I think is typically a pretty good gauge.
