Are You a Moderate with Liberal Leanings?
If you consider yourself an Independent or Moderate but find yourself agreeing with mostly Liberal / Progressive policy stances (ie equal rights for gays, the Public Option, the wealthy should pay more in taxes, companies should pay their fair share of taxes and stop shipping jobs overseas, equal pay for women, repealing DADT & DOMA, the need for social security and Medicaid, etc…) then you are calling yourself by the wrong moniker. Stand up for what you believe in and stop acting like their is some virtue in calling yourself something you are not.
