I know people who are both conservative and liberal. The tags are just as misleading as the campaign ads can be and usually are. Neither tag is adequately defined. It is necessary to look at the stated policies. The best current example of a problem is the conservatives stating that the government (the People) must help support the rich for them to create jobs and improve the economy. This includes unfair low tax rates, tax credits and subsidies. Many ultra rich and the biggest businesses pay from 0 to 15 percent income tax.
The trickle down economy cannot and will not work. First off no business is going to increase production and hire anyone during a shrinking economy. In a growing economy, they are saying that the government must support capitalism for it to work effectively. Trickle down economy is a big lie propaganda program designed to rip off the American people and gift money to the rich.
