Liberals, what is your most conservative viewpoint? Conservatives, what is your most liberal viewpoint?

Conservative! (TRIGGER WARNING!!! might get controversial a little bit and for that I apologize)

1: Abortion. I believe in the right to have one. However, I think it is very irresponsible as a means of pure birth control after consensual sex. I know that I am going take a lot of heat for this so I want to be clear that you can do whatever you want with your life. But I center my view and practice of life around being as responsible as possible for my words and actions. I believe everything you say, act out, and in some ways thinks carries with it a consequence. Therefore to preform sexual actions with someone, with the knowledge that it could result in a life that is not yours, and then to end that life is completely irresponsible in my view. Now please understand that none of what I said pertains to my belief about having an abortion due to medical or unwanted sexual actions. I am literally holding back tears at the thought of having to make a decision like this and send all my thoughts and prayers to anyone who has been, is currently, or will be in the future. In short I am not really pro life nor am I pro choice. I am PRO RESPONSIBILITY!


2) Global warming is real. 3) Education should be free, and reconstructed not to just push people into jobs. 4) Welfare programs are great, but should ultimately lead to self sustainable income. (Teach a man to fish etc.) 5) Weed should be legal.

For those wondering, I am a practicing vajrayana/dzogchen buddhist.
