    When I lived in Massachusetss I thought I was pretty middle of the road. I moved to South Carolina and overnight I became a liberal nut case. I still think I am pretty middle of the road - be prudent with my money and stay out of people's personal lives.

    My wife is pretty conservative so we balance out as a household.

    I recently figured out what a conservative truly is, and I would say that I try to practice quaint conservative values. I do not view conservative and liberal as polar opposites so much as I view them as two separate spheres or patterns of logic with their own poles. On one sphere there is quaint and rigid conservative, while ordinary and excessive liberal order resides upon the other sphere. While the discussion of polar opposites causes the stark thinking of black and white, thinking in figurative terms of spherical orders also keeps the logical processes clear and concise to avoid room for areas of gray, thus maintaining the harmony between the dark areas and the light areas. One should not ever view a liberal value as the opposite of a conservative value as that is precisely the type of thinking that leads to confusion and misunderstanding across our borders.
    I think conservative values have a lot to do with cleaning your side of the home, and finding ethical and stable solutions to problems, while particular liberal values and practices lead to excess and waste. While it is never wise to bury yourself too deep into the ground of one of these spheres, it is important to note that they are dissimilar but are not necessarily elements in opposition to one another, unless of course the world has it poles mixed up. The art of remaining grounded just enough on one sphere is vital to the exchange and maturation of our behaviours and universal culture, thus allowing an exchange of particular concepts and other ideas to exchange freely with the least amount of conflict and/or confusion possible. Of course, the least amount of conflict and confusion possible is zero, but it is always wise to make safety nets and preparations for such problems.
