      I hear it said that different industries tend to be more to the right or to the left:

      Arts and media tend to be more liberal
      Law enforcement tend to be more conservative
      Educators tend to be more liberal
      Clergy tend to be more conservative

      Do you think this is true? And I say “tend to be” because there are always exceptions to the majority.

      But what about other industries:

      What about the financial industry?
      What about people who work in real estate?
      What about people in other sales positions?
      What about engineers and architects?

      What do you think?

        • This isn’t really meant to stir things up or create controversy. I’m really curious.

          My husband has been in education for over 30 years. He’s also conservative on most issues. He was attending a political dinner for a conservative politician one evening and someone he knew approached him and asked why he was there. He responded that he supported the politician and wanted to hear him speak at the dinner. The response was, “but you‘re an educator, you can’t be conservative.” That made him laugh but also made him think about various vocations and political affiliation.

        • I’m really glad you answered the question, Annie. I was wondering about the Finance industry and know you have knowledge in that area. Sometimes I watch the stock shows on CNBC, MSNBC, and FOX and I’ve always tried to figure out where they stand.

          I’m also curious about the medical profession. Especially now with the new health care law.

        • I wish I could answer that. I really dont know. Im all about the arts and see ALOT of liberal people- almost to the point of hippy-ness sometimes. As for me, I avoid all of it.
          Im told FOX news is all about being conservative.
          I hear many movie stars are ‘flaming liberals’ example: Sean Penn. I do not know if it is true or not.
          My aunts are in the medical profession and are very against the new health care bill.

        • Thanks Annie.And Thanks, Jen for the input on your aunts in the medical profession. I was looking to hear a point of view from that perspective.
