    I was going to say the exact same thing, Jordan.
    financially conservative + socially liberal = Libertarian!

    For “if the elections were tomorrow, who would you vote for” where was Gary Johnson???

  2. Jordan says:

    So on the whole… We’re financial conservatives and social liberals.

    VOTE LIBERTARIAN!

  3. bob hob says:

    bleh

  4. Lauren says:

    I don’t really have anything else to say!

  5. Danielle Sabrena Ellis says:

    I voted wrong! I’m so sorry. On the liberal vs. conservative questions I put 4 & 5 when I meant 2 & 1 (more liberal). Sorry for not reading fully. I hope this doesn’t ruin your article.
