One flaw, equality is not a "liberal versus conservative" thing, it's a "reality versus superstitious nonsense" thing. No true conservative would turn away the chance to increase revenue within the economy, that's tantamount to suicide. Seattle is not as liberal as people think, nor are our neighbors as conservative, most of Washington state is balanced, moderate for the best descriptive label. Our city government is idiotically liberal, can't balance a budget even when the voters tell them a better option, but our government is still fair and pretty balanced in all other areas.

To the extent that "Conservative" represents blind adherence to the status quo and "Liberal" represents investigation without preconceptions, equality does indeed have a conservative/liberal split.
Of course, that's not all that characterizes conservative thinking. Nor do liberals approach all of society's problems without the lens of the world we already live in. But those rather large components of the to philosophies do, indeed, cause a rift on conservative/liberal lines.
