Conservatives and liberals approach almost every issue with completely different philosophies, underlying assumptions, and methods. That's why it's so hard to find genuine compromise between conservatism and liberalism, because not only are liberals almost always wrong, their solutions almost always make things worse.


The liberals want to transform the American society from a moral one to an immoral one. This war started in the 1940's and has been building in intensity. Liberals are almost always wrong, and their solutions almost always make things worse. Here are some examples of this:


Liberals view judges as a backdoor method of getting unpopular left-leaning legislation passed. They don't want umpires, they want political partisans in black robes who will side with them first and then come up with a rationale to explain it.


Liberals believe by taking arms away from law abiding citizens, they can prevent criminals, who aren't going to abide by gun control laws, from using guns in the commission of crimes.


Liberals believe that it's ok to discriminate based on race as long as it primarily benefits minority groups.


Liberals are socialists who view successful business owners as people who cheated the system somehow or got lucky. That's why they don't respect high achievers and see them as little more than piggy banks for their programs.


Most liberals, despite what they'll tell you, believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child, but they prefer killing the baby instead of inconveniencing the mother.


Liberals believe in using law enforcement measures to deal with terrorism, which means that they feel we should allow terrorists to train, plan, and actually attempt to kill Americans before we try to arrest them -- as if you can just send the police around to pick up a terrorist mastermind hiding in Iran or the wilds of Pakistan.


Liberals, and Democrats for that matter, believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn't like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.


Liberals think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is guessed it, another government program.


Liberals are internationalists who are more concerned about what Europeans think of us and staying in the good graces of the corrupt bureaucrats who control the UN than looking out for the best interests of this nation.


Liberals, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That's why, whether you're talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays," liberals are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society. The liberal supreme court justices were the ones who banned the Bible, Prayer and Ten commandments from the public schools in 1962, 1963 and 1980 respectively.


Liberals believe government should not support religious expression in any way.  All reference to God in public and government spaces should be removed (eg., the Ten Commandments should not be displayed in Federal buildings, The Bible and Prayer removed from the public schools).  Religious expression has no place in government.


Liberals believe in pursuing policies because they're "nice" and make them feel good. Whether the policies they're advocating actually work or not is of secondary importance to them.


Liberals support free or low-cost government controlled health care.


Liberals support amnesty for those who enter the U.S. illegally (undocumented immigrants).  Also  believe that undocumented immigrants have a right to: All educational and health benefits that citizens receive (financial aid, welfare, social security and Medicaid), regardless of legal status. The same rights as American citizens.  It is unfair to arrest millions of undocumented immigrants.


Liberals believe that marriage is the union of people who love each other.  It should be legal for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals, to ensure equal rights for all.  Support same-sex marriage.  Opposed to the creation of a constitutional amendment establishing marriage as the union of one man and one woman.  All individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, have the right to marry.  Prohibiting same-sex citizens from marrying denies them their civil rights.


This transformation of the US society over the decades by the Liberals are turning the United States into the next Sodom and Gomorrah.

Liberals, or some other name that go by (need to keep changing them because the public gets wind of the smell) Marxist, Socialist, progressives, Fascist, etc. I tend to use 'socialist' because liberals comes form the Enlightenment period and the founders of America were all considered 'liberals'. Today we separate liberals into two groups. The separation point is the start of the industrial revolution explosion ~ 1800. The earlier group that includes the founders are called 'classic liberals' and the later ones that include Marx the 'modern liberals'.
Now to your points.
Understand that when you say morals your saying 'law of Nature and Nature's God' right out of the foundation of the nation, The Declaration of Independence. The 'liberal' believe that man is capable of making better laws that those of God. They believe that we should be governed by the laws created by temporary people in charge of a nation, they all die, no exception. If you do not believe in God then consider that moral are agreed upon by societies over thousands of generations and that if one examines the major religions the morals are consistent across all of them. So they must reject God and morals.
Actually taking guns away from citizens is the first move of totalitarian governments. You can not overthrow a them without weapons. The reason the American Revolution succeeded is the armed civilians population.
Man making laws places the makers in an upper class, more human, and those told to follow those laws are lesser humans, a lower class. The upper class knows what is best for the lower classes, Now that is the definition of discrimination. In the end the lower classes serve the upper class. Race, religion, sex, language, etc are used to define lower classes.
Two types of socialist exist. Those like Marx that grab control and use force to stay in power. and those that use redistribution of wealth and lies to obtain the vote of the mob to stay in power. The rest of your article just goes into detail of the particulars of the second type.

Well the only thing you were right about is that liberals and conservatives approach every issue from a different philosophy. The rest was pure bullshit.
Conservatives approach it with a view of how they can make money out of it, exploit someone for profit and get away with it.
Liberals approach it with the view of how can they make things better, fairer and more equitable.
One is naked selfishness and greed and the other is caring altruism.

Thomas - seems you also need to check the definition of Fascism.

Opher Goodwin:
You comment about Liberals approach it with the view of how they can make things better, fairer and more equitable contradicts what they are actually doing. When it comes to abortion, they are murdering a million babies annually in the USA for their naked selfishness and greed. This is definitely not caring altruism.
Do you see the hypocrisy in your statement?

 We should be human and commonsensical, not political, because politics is propaganda, it may or may not be true, politics should be set aside.

Marty, the main issue with your post as i see it, is  that nobody seems to agree on what a liberal or a conservative is. Indeed, some here accuse me of being a liberal and other a conservative. The best definition that i know is that of Bierce:
"Conservative, n: A statesman who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal who wishes to replace them with others."
I think it captures your intended notion of opposite but fails to give you that nice warm fuzzy superior feeling.

Bill H: The Sutrino knows FDR was a facist.  And Mustafa points out the "comfort for conservs under stress of reality and facts" nature of this article.  What Marty didn't get into is the conserv need of some "conservatives" to "destroy the left" so there can be no question of their inate "superiority."  Fear of migrants and fear of "socialism" is #1 on Newt Gingrich's and T strategy for mid terms, so it will be interesting as to how rabid rightists will get.

Would you prefer to redistribute unwanted children, as this seems one of your main concerns ? ;-)
And where's the greed in there ? Ah, people like Warren Buffett or the Koch's are liberals ;-)
Thanks for informing a foreigner LOL

Marty - you prove my point. Your words are inflammatory and incorrect. An embryo is not a baby. You might as well say an egg and a sperm are babies. Nonsensical.
You conservatives are very keen on taking away peoples' rights. You want to stop people choosing for themselves whether to have an abortion or take drugs, whether to be able to read a certain book or marry who they like.
You just want everyone else to reflect your own morality. If they don't believe the same as you ergo they're wrong.

Thomas your use of fascist is absurd. It is a right-wing phenomenon. Liberals are not fascists - indeed quite the opposite. It just shows how in this post-truth world fake rubbish is peddled as truth.
I'm a liberal and I thoroughly oppose fascism with every ounce of my strength. 
James Travil Added Sep 23, 2018 - 2:14pm
Thomas and the author of this article are nuts. One of my ladies is a liberal and she is nothing like the author of this crap describes. Opher is correct, fascism is a rightwing thing and embryos are not babies. Not that we have a low population problem anyhow we have the opposite! 
opher goodwin Added Sep 23, 2018 - 2:31pm
Exactly James. I think the conservatives would have us all breeding like rabbits until we are all standing on each other's shoulders and chest deep in our own excrement - forget about the effect on nature.
8 billion is 4 billion too many. It's the cause of most of the world's problems from extinction rates, global warming, pollution, deforestation, scarcity of resources and wars.

These people need to turn off Fox News and read a good non bias book. I belong to a church that welcomes all. This morning gay men came in with their children. The author is brainwashed.

Opher - One must remember the creed. The more people, the more profit.
It doesn't matter if we pollute the planet, plunder the resources, and choke on the smog. The more people there are, the more stuff can be sold and the higher the bottom line.
You've seen one of the favorite responses on the "global warming" posts- "it's been proven that more CO2 in the atmosphere is good for plants and crops".
Well shit, let's get to dumping even more of it into the air so we can feed more people, right!!
Seems that is all that matters to some.

Excellent reasons for ignoring the left. They have nothing but the taxes of decent citizens.

"8 billion is 4 billion too many. "
One solution is Soylent Green, run by liberals and for liberals and maybe they can truncate the leftist population to the benefit of Nature and decent folk. 
 Liberals need to look to Nature and give back some things
