In most of the world's industrialized countries, those with conservative social views are more likely to have conservative economic views and likewise with the liberals. I was thinking about What's The Matter With Kansas the other day, when it occurred to me that this could change, at least in the United States. Let's say that the rural poor begin to vote in their own, direct economic self-interest and against the Republicans. In order to accomplish this, the Democrats would have to move pretty far to the right on social issues. I would think that liberals would find this pretty abominable and would possibly join the ranks of a less-extreme Libertarian Party. I am not sure this whole thing is too likely; I'm just kind of speculating here. So, the question is, who would you vote for, given this chance: a socially conservative, economically liberal party or an economically conservative, but socially liberal party. As more of a liberal, I don't know. I value both social and economic issues so much, but if I had to vote for one, I suppose I would vote for whoever was more liberal on social issues, given my more moderate economic stances.
