    Can not speak for others. But as a liberal.

    1. Construction of nuclear power plants

    Against. Believe we need to use wind, solar and other safer sources for energy.

    2. Disarmament

    Against full disarmament. Need to be able to protect ourselves and our allies. Some changes in arms made could be good.

    3. Supporting 18 years old's right to vote

    Support. They are old enough to fight for this country, they are old enough to vote.

    4. President making reforms

    Against him doing it independently. Goes against the reasons the founding fathers set up our government with 3 branches.

    5. Females having same opportunities as males

    For. Every person should have the same opportunities/rights as everyone else.

    6. People joining the socialist party

    Wouldn't join myself. But it is a free country to join what ever political party a person wants to.

    7. People to hold their traditions

    People can hold their own traditions. But they should not be able to require others to agree or live by those traditions. Ones rights/traditions stop at the end of your own nose.

    8. Strict police

    Support. We need stronger enforcement of existing laws. But need to change prison system. Need to address WHY someone committed the crime and if possible provide help to correct it. (Drug/alcohol rehabilitation, mental/psychological counseling, education so they can become a positive/contributing member of society.) And SURPRISE!!! I support the death penalty, BUT it is for those criminals that can not become part of society again. Why pay to house, clothe, feed and provide medical care?

    Conservatives would favor 1,4,7,8 while liberals would support 2,3,5,6.

    Source(s): it could be both for some, but if I had to choose one, thats what I would choose. Is this for school? Does it have to be conservative or liberal? If so I believe that this is the right answer. Social studies education major.
