So I'm conservative. I have no problem with that at all. I believe what I believe and I'm not one to apologise for it.
Something else that I believe is that I have a different viewpoint than most: Though I don't completely embrace what most extremists are saying, I don't necessarily fully disagree with their viewpoints. As much as I may disagree with the way that a group of people is protesting something or other, I think that we need them to help balance out those who only look for a way to make profit. And while I can empathize with the protesters saying that yes, things can be done in a way that may be better environmentally, I think that we need the other extreme as well, to keep a balance.
After all, if it were up to some extreme environmentalists, we'd all be living in mud huts, eating only fruit that fell to the ground of its own accord and wearing non-animal, non-synthetic clothing. That would be bad in many ways as well: Too much fruit will give you the runs, and I look absolutely terrible in a grass skirt!

I must agree with the grass skirt look. not quite "you!" and if we were gathering fruit all day, when would we have time for computer games and junk like that!?
