How many of you are mixed politically?

I cannot relate totally to either party. I am liberal on some issues and conservative on some.
I am liberal when it comes to providing legislation for equality between the sexes, racial equality, rights for homosexuals. I am liberal about there needs to be reform for health care...although the conservative side of me doesn't like all that passed as healthcare reform. I think insurance companies need to be held accountable in their services (not drop someone, not deny someone due to pre-existing conditions) only because that is really the only option people have in order to get good healthcare. (unless there is a public option, which I have mixed feelings about).
I am conservative in that I am not for gun control, I am for capital punishment (but only in strict cases), I am for making the environment cleaner (but deep down inside I'm not sure I am buying all the scare tactics from environmentalists...I recycle and I know theres more we can do...but I'm just not buying the whole story there). I am for fiscal conservatism (unfortunately, neither party is seriously fiscally conservative...but the Republican party surely wants to cut programs that help the disadvantaged...I differ with them in that we should continue to help the disadvantaged...I am not religious but I take seriously that we should love our neighbor and that charity (private and public through government) is what gives our country a soul.
There's probably more...but its lunch time and my brain is mush.

Anyone else can relate to being mixed politically? My intention isn't for us to argue whether someone's beliefs are right or wrong...but to just share how we can agree or disagree and therefore hold views that are from both parties.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    I'm mixed. I'm for government staying mostly out of our lives, the right to bear arms, and fiscal conservatism. However, I cannot EVER vote for the republican party because of their party stance on women, abortion, gays, religion, and basic human rights.

    I think most people actually are mixed politically. I think it unlikely that a person would agree with everything one party stands for and disagree with everything regarding the other party, unless of course they work at Fox.

    Although in this day and age, it's hard to actually see what any one party stands for. The political climate has shifted, there once was a typical liberal and typical conservative party. Now there's a conservative and a very conservative party. Neither really appeal to me.
