Liberal. A little to the left of your Democrats, although the last couple of Liberal administrations were admirably fiscally conservative. Less pro-business and pro-free-trade than the Conservative Party. More government services via higher taxes, where the Conservative Party wants less government services for lower taxes.
(As opposed to the US where the Republicans ALSO want more government services via higher taxes - they merely differ with the Democrats on WHICH government services should get more funding and who should pay those taxes.)
Our Conservative Party is to the right of your Republicans - not to the right of what Republicans campaign on, but to the certainly to the right of Republicans once elected.
Your turn. What makes you think I'm not a conservative? (Hint: Being a Palin/Bachmann/Santorum Republican does not make you a conservative. Being a Tea Partier certainly does not make you a conservative.) Not that I expect you to be capable of a rational answer this time either.
As expected, once again "Reality" is unable to answer.
And still he hasn't:

You demand answers from others, and yet even when they respond, you're completely unable to answer the most basic questions about your own claims. Stop being such a pissant.
I answered your question and again asked the obvious question in return. Again, you ran away.

You've already stated so a number of times that I'm left-wing and non-conservative. Not that you've ever been capable of answering why, but you've made up your mind, so you don't need any further information from me.
You asked me a question. I answered. It's your turn.

The FBI Considered "It's A Wonderful Life" to be communist propaganda
. They thought Life smeared American values such as wealth and free enterprise while glorifying anti-American values such as the triumph of the common man.
You leftie, you.

I'm firmly in the center. On the left/right/authoritarian/libertarian test posted here a while ago. I'm just about dead-center on the left-right scale, just half a square left of center. On the authoritarian/libertarian scale I'm deep into the libertarian side.
There's not much difference between libertarian and liberal, so for an authoritarian like yourself it's understandable if you think I'm liberal.
But we're talking about the word conservative, which is not the opposite of libertarian or liberal or left. For all your claims that I'm not a conservative, yet again you're still unable to explain why.
