It's very difficult for liberals to answer that question honestly. If they did, they would realize how absurd their support for the Democrat party really is. So I'll answer for them.<quoted text>Too simple of an answer. Cop out. Get specific pls
Although there are many differences, in short, the conservatives believe in treating all people the same whereas liberals are more divide and conquer. Liberals believe in dividing Americans and make one group the enemy and the other their friends: gay vs straight, black vs white, rich vs poor, smokers vs non-smokers, women vs men and so on.
Conservaties believe if we need a federal tax rate of 10%, then the poor should pay 10%, the middle-class pay 10% and the wealthy pay 10%. We know that will never happen, but it's the philosophy that I'm pointing out.
If a murderer kills somebody in your family, then it doesn't matter if they lost their life because they were gay, Mexican or black. Murder is murder, and all murderers get the same trial.
Conservatives believe the solution to our social inequity is to bring the people at the bottom-up whereas liberals believe the solution is bringing the people at the top-down. We believe hard work and responsibility should be rewarded. They believe no work and irresponsibility be rewarded. Hard work and responsibility should be penalized.
Conservatives believe we are all free individuals with the right to go as far or as short as you desire. Liberals believe our country is one big commune and that some go out and get food and some don't,but no matter what, it all gets thrown in a pot and then divided equally.
That's the difference between conservatives and liberals.
