True, Real Conservatism & Liberalism you have to go back to the 1920's to understand their true meanings what it meant to be a Conservative and a Liberal which is why I consider both todays Liberals & Conservatives as progressive.<quoted text>
Perhaps, but no less than liberalism.
Not all Republicans are conservative. For instance, there were plenty of Republicans who served under Bush who were really not conservative. Heck, I never considered GW a real conservative either.
Wendell Willkie the Republican nominee for President in 1940 even confirms FDR distorted the meaning of being a Liberal and what it meant to be a true Liberal and where it really all started.
