What the Hell is Conservativism and Liberalism? Who are Conservatives and who are Liberals?


You know what's interesting is the change in meaning the word "liberalism" has undergone from "classical liberalism" to the modern "social liberalism."

Also, "liberal" basically means a person that is open minded and willing to work toward political change. I think you could actually say that tea partiers are liberals, although not espousing the modern social liberalism, but a more classical liberalism.

Who we normally consider as liberals today could be considered conservative in that they are attempting to hold on to the present system of increasing taxation and centralization of power in D.C.

Food for thought.
