Liberal def: : believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change

Conservative def: : believing in the value of established and traditional practices in politics and society

Independent def: One that is independent, is not committed to a political party. Often referred to as Constitutionalist.

You might be a Constitutionalist if you believe that elected leaders should really obey the U.S. Constitution; if you believe that before the U.S. invades and occupies another country, Congress must first declare war; you believe the federal government should live within its means, like everyone else is forced to do; you think that taking away people's liberties in the name of security is neither patriotic nor does it make the country more secure.

Military and life experience (and age) have made me much more conservative, SSG(P) (Join to see). Great poll question!

That's a good point, SSG(P) (Join to see). Government spending is usually a liberal cause, but military spending is not welfare spending, so conservatives often "go for" military spending.

As for me personally, I've probably always leaned more toward the conservative side of politics. The military just cemented that position for me.

There is that, CH (CPT) (Join to see)! When I left active duty, I was SHOCKED at how much more tax I had to pay. That tax-free BAH is sweet, but it ends when you leave active duty. Lesson learned.

Hasn't really changed my approach. I tend to be very independent and not prone to give up my God given right to make a decision based on an objective review of the facts as opposed to having my opinion dictated to me from the lunitic fringe of the two extreme ends of the spectrum.
