    While Conservatism is rooted more in fact and history, Liberalism is based more on ideals and emotions. Does that tell you where I stand? LOL

    Which is better will always be a debatable point. Each is missing the essential ingredients the other brings to the table. What we really need is the best of both. .....I guess we can always hope even if it is probably in vain!!

    The important thing to remember is both groups think they are doing what is best for their fellow citizens.  The problem comes when we realize, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."   I really like that quote... but I don't know who originally said it.

    I think conservatism is more concerned about being traditional simply because its traditional.

    that being said, there's plenty of open minded and hostile people on both sides.

    Conservatives tend to look back.  Liberals tend to look forward.  The fact is that looking back is sometime a good thing but sooner or later we move forward.  The better choice is independent. Pick the best idea for the time, conservative or liberal, and go with it.  That would be intelligent choice.

    Conservatism is the belief that we should keep our country based on its foundations and certain ideals that were clearly established in our Constitution and form of government that was set up (a republic). And though we are living hundreds of years later from this establishment, we are to keep our country moving forward, but based on the foundation from its beginning. That is what keep us sovereign, free, successful, etc. Liberalism, on the other hand, tries to change the country with the 'times' and with the views and feelings of certain people. It tries to give more laws that provide more 'rights' while at the same time taking away rights that have already been established. Therefore, in my opinion conservatism is better...
