    My unbiased description is this: liberals turn to government to solve their problems. Conservatives turn to business to solve their problems.

      A conservative is a person who votes to help themselves, Liberals are people who vote to help others, the first is not necessarily a bad thing.

      (people will probably swarm on this and say poor people vote liberal to get more assistance for themselves etc but the fact is liberal voters are on average 6% wealthier)

    Just saw this question...no one answered??? I'll try
    Conservatives believe in tradition..holds to ideas and thoughts already established.  Conservatives dislke change, can sometimes accept if it is gradual.  Most conservatives have deep racial viewa, but will not admit it.  Conservatives believe in the "status quo"..traditional policies (old 40's views on marriage and family.  Conservatives are slow moderate thinkers, cautious and suspicious of abrupt change.

    Liberals are free thinkers. polar opposite of conservatives.  The political views of liberals are governed by the constitution (conservatives usual claim this, but they don't care about constitutional rights).  Liberals are broad minded, tolerant and believe in progress (remember conservatives don't like change)  Liberals want to protect your civil rights and are proponents of individual freedoms from restraint.

    Maybe you've heard this..."Liberals fall in love, conservatives fall in line."

    Liberals would never have belittled Bristole Palin for being pregnant out of wed lock...like Sara claimed....but conservatives would have.

            Obama being gone would be an excellent start, LMC. Perhaps, come November, we'll get the "hope" and "change" this country really needs.

            I'm not 100% happy with Romney but anyone would be better than Barack Hussein Obama.

            I "hope" Barack Hussein Obama looses and any kind of "change" would be better than what he has in mind for this country.

                You were probably raising $900 worth of hell about Bush just like I'm doing about Barack Hussein Obama.

                I'm not going sit back and watch Barack Hussein Obama tear down this country any more than I expect you did when Bush was in office.

                You want 100% or nothing. Obama wants 100% - period. How is that American? It's not and you know that, too.

      PJ, this Conservative has no problem with change as long as that change is within the U.S. Constitution.

      It's when the Liberals, Progressives, and Socialists like Obama try to shred our Constitution and change our form of government into a Socialist state that Conservatives don't like change.

        Longhunter do you know what a Socialist is?  A lot of people don't know that a Socialist is someone who does not believe in owning land.  All land is owned by the government.  A socialist society distributes goods and pay according to work done..but like I said don't own land.  Obama is not a Socialist.  I don't know any Socialist, everyone I know wants to own property....do you?

    1. lovemychris profile image80
      lovemychrisposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      The dichotomy is true!

      For instance, the biggest anti-war pol I can think of is Dennic Kucinich. For all of his career, he's advocated a Dept of Peace instead of a Dept of War.

      He wanted to bring impeachment hearings on Bush AND Obama.

      BUT-- he is also pro-choice, and an advocate for stronger gun laws....something the Right will never tolerate.

      Ergo--one who wants to end war but has other political views that are un-tenable to many.

      Same for Ron Paul. He's anti-war, but also anti-choice, and anti-regs....un-tenable to many.

      The dichotomy is true.

      1. innersmiff profile image71
        innersmiffposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        All you've proven is that there is an anti-war politician on each side, it's hardly a telling statement on the supposed dichotomy. Both sides support war, regulation (to varying degrees), the police state, drugging our children, heavy spending and the destruction of education. The 'choice' debate is a huge distraction from the real bi-partisan evils the American government come up with, and intentionally so.

  9. Onusonus profile image86
    Onusonusposted 5 years ago

    The major factor that has distinguished the liberals from the conservatives is the way that they interpret the constitution. It was liberal ideology that so loosely read the God granted fact that "All men are created equal". Thus they liberally interpreted the constitution in order to legalize slavery, Jim crow, woman's suffrage and so on.

    The conservative approach to the constitution was to take literally the fact that all men are created equal, and make that the law. This ideology came to the forefront of the battle over slavery during the civil war when conservative president Abraham Lincoln declared unequivocally that the people who so liberally interpreted the constitution in regards to freedom were wrong.

    This form of liberalism was what separated the country in ideology and it continues as liberals loosely (or liberally) interpret the constitution by abusing the commerce clause, and the general welfare clause in the constitution, and using tax money to benefit special interest groups, instead of the general public. They have liberally, and loosely distorted the words;

    life, with the exception of unwanted babies

    Liberty, by advocating slavery and segregation

    The pursuit of happiness, through the advocacy of wealth redistribution

    And the biggest contradiction of all as the very title of our nations declaration of independence is stifled through welfare policies which create dependence on the state.

      "The pursuit of happiness, through the advocacy of wealth redistribution"

      For the past 40 years there has been a great "wealth redistribution" from the poor and middle class to the greediest and richest Americans, thanks to de-regulation, tax loopholes big enough to drive a truck through, and globalization.

        And yet America has the biggest middle class the world has ever seen, despite the liberal agenda of enslavement to the government. Corporations are a thousand times more responsible with their money than the government ever could hope to be, just look at the deficit.

      A Conservative is one that wants everyone to have the opportunity to pursue their dreams, unfettered by the shackles of an oppressive form of government.

      Some Liberals are too lazy to dream for themselves much less do the hard work to turn them into reality. They find it easier to live off the hard work of others.

    It's interesting that it's said that conservatives resist change when fiscal conservatives favor an economic system whose explicit intended purpose is to foster innovation and reward new ideas--in short, to speed change along.

    REAL fiscal conservatives, anyway. I realize the current GOP falls well short of that ideal.

    Sounds like a biased opinion to me.  Liberals (like me) wish government didn't need to solve many of the problems that businesses create. 
    Conservatives like to complain about regulations.  Regulations are created because businesses won't stop at anything for a profit.
    Conservatives don't want healthcare reform.  Only rich people can afford medical treatment, EVEN WITH INSURANCE.
    Conservatives want to stop the EPA from protecting the environment.  Maybe they should remember, we have nowhere else to go if you destroy the Earth.

    Conservatives hurt the poor by being stingy toward good government programs.

          Thank you, John, but not all here on HP would agree with you on me being rational. However, I do have a permit to carry and do know the laws for such here in TN.

          I'm getting the impression LMC is painting ALL Conservatives with the same brush and, frankly, she's wrong, if that's the case. She certainly doesn't like it if I do the same with ALL liberals. I've talked to some Liberals that are on Zimmerman's side but they seemed uninformed about the case or the law.

          My point is to look at the law. I've admitted I don't know FL's laws in this case but here in TN, Zimmerman would've been arrested.

          He pursued Martin but he's not a LEO. If he had not pursued Martin and just called the police, letting them handle it, there's a good chance Martin would still be alive.

          First chance I get, I'll look into FL handgun carry laws.

            I do have a problem with those who think  Zimmerman's actions were entirely justifiable. They seem to excuse his actions by claiming that Martin attacked him, even if he did,it was not without much provocation.

    Perhaps conservative logic, at the most rudimentary form, is nothing more than this: CONSERVE life, conserve resources, conserve the moment... While a liberal's logic, at the most rudimentary form, is liberation (from what it is that you long to liberate yourself from).

    If Obama cared, do you think that there would be a warm home for every American to come home to at the end of the day?
    Quite frankly, I stopped believing and caring for the wellbeing of polyticks and leeches, the day the towers fell; thus the words "liberal" and "conservative" have no place in a polytickal arena, dog and pony show, beauty pageant, etcetera.

    Moreover, if there are people whom look at people as merely nothing more than a conservative or a liberal then they may as well be nothing more than numbers. We as a unified world could even give these numbers out to people with social security cards, and have them believe in an elaborate system like social security and the belief that Man's government is capable of lasting or working.

    In the name of the machine program known as Alpha and Omega,
    Amen.

    ...once upon a time, liberal meant conservative and conservative meant liberal...that ought to tell you something about humanity, and that is what needs to be looked at...where's the unity,, why do egos have to be allowed to take charge instead of loving each other

    Mitt Romney declared that Pres.Obama was going to start a new religion called
    "seculiarism". Lawrence O'Donnell responded on his show with the following:

    Mormonism was created by a guy in upstate New York in 1830 when he got caught having sex with the maid and explained to his wife that God told him to do it. Forty-eight wives later, Joseph Smith�s lifestyle was completely sanctified in the religion he invented to go with it, which Mitt Romney says he believes.

    There was a big back lash for this comment forcing O'Donnell to apologize to the Mormon community. But Lawrence noticed, no one objected to the notion of President Obama secretly plotting a new religion.  Is it because we are used to "nasty" untrue comments about our President? Or maybe it's not a bad idea?

    If Romney were to select Jeb Bush for VP, then we would know we are in for a sea change.

    Obama never wanted 100%. he is always willing an open to suggestions. And I for one, would like to see his ideas implemented, instead of blocked. Do you know, there is a jobs bill he approved, that has been sitting in the House since last September?

    He nixed the public option because he knew the R's would never go for it.
    Gave them Bushtaxcuts III in exchange for money for the unemployed...lost Van Jones, gave a speech to prove he was not a racist thanks to Fox and friends and the media's obsession with Rev Wright.

    Heck...he even agreed to 10 dollars in cuts to one dollar in increased taxes....even that was not good enough for them.

    Forget it....they are not Americans IMO--they are Me-Icans. Me Me Me Me Me Me Me.

    And if the Me-Icans win this election, I'm Swedish.

      Nothing I can say will change you, LMC. Don't want to anyway.

      Good thing they have the internet in Sweden.

    Oh, I'll still live here, and pay taxes to the gvt. But I will not recognize it.

    my life: Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Reagan, Bush Bush Bush....Enough.

    Especially when my optimism was dashed about 2 weeks into my choice's reign.

    If we dont have a system of fairness.....what use is it?
    We elected Obama...we deserve 4 years of Obama!  NOT 3 years of fighting to be respected!~

    The respect should already be there from you supposed "constitution" people.

    Instead, we get a concerted effort to block my vote. Fehhhh. Call me when my vote counts.

      I could say a lot here, LMC, but it would only serve to cause a huge argument.

      I'll just say we'll have to agree to disagree and leave it at that.

        OK...just don't say a word when I call names at the R's.

        That's all Obama has been subject to since day one. And I hope someday, an R pres is treated as such ish by others in gvt. Then maybe they will see.

        Hey RMoney....you hate women don't you? Yeah....he has a deep-seated hatred for women....I can tell cause you know....I cry.

        Now let me get on National TV and repeat it. Oh and RMoney.....you are not really an American are you? Not really a Christian are you? Not really born here are you?

        PROVE it!  and no matter what you say---I reserve the right to call you a LIAR....in front of the world.

          The only things I've called Obama are the worst president in my lifetime, possibly the history of this country, and an idiot. Both apply and far worse than some names called Bush when he was in office.

          There may be more but none have referred to his heritage as that's not why I dislike any person. I know which one's you're referring to, they're racist, and I haven't used them.

          IMHO, his only redeeming qualities are he seems to be a good husband and father. I don't think he believes in the Constitution or is an American in his heart thus I don't want him as president.

    I don't like labels - I don't like being labeled.  All this Conservative vs Liberal vs Moderate vs Radical is babble.  I contend that no one is totally Conservative on each and every issue, neither are they totally Liberal, Moderate, nor Radical on each and every issue.  An honest person would admit that their "label" changes from time to time.  Anyone who denies that is a bit hypocritical, don't you think?

    Being labeled one of the big four is confining and restrictive.  Hey, maybe therein lies the problem?
