Fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives.

Conservatives believe that you aren't stupid, that you can take care of yourself.

 

Liberals believe that you are stupid and they need to take care of you.

However.... the people who vote for their meal ticket (the dems) are stupid and need other people's money to take care of them, by the sheer amount of their votes....which is about half of the population of this country.

The only question is..., how long until the next (un)Civil Separation?

Re: However....

I suspect that the folks in the first and only (un)civil separation were divided along those lines that you folks propose right now.The slow conservative south against the progressive north.  We know how that turned out.  Get some, craig!

Re: Fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives.

Conservatives want to preserve what they`ve got, being their own assets or the wonderfull traditions of this great country. They are concerned with liberty above all. Liberals are all about fairness or what they preceive to be fair. The problem is that goes against nature, nature isn`t fair. Sorry liberals, there are winners and losers in life. Some are winners or losers just by being born, conservatives at least give the born loser a chance to become a winner.

bart; not sure what you refer to as 'the first and only (un)civil separation' was really the one and only. Civil or otherwise.

Re: chance to become a winner, BA.

Not sure why you think only 'conservatives' give a 'loser' a chance to become a winner.

I believe many you would label as 'liberal' have done and continue to do a lot to help people who are considered 'losers' today to get a foot up and go ahead and become a winner.

Just standing back and saying you all have a chance is not the same as actually assisting people to break out of a bad situation and go ahead.

Hey Canuck, the way you determine if someone is worthy of help is if they`re trying to improve themselves, you know "teach someone to fish and you will feed them for life". Liberals throw money around willy nilly, "fairly" and you end up with cities like Detriot. Conservatives give the individual the freedom to help themselves, which is the real help. In full disclosure, that`s what went wrong in Iraq, we "helped" those who didn`t deserve or even want our "help" and just look at the mess.

Re: However....

craig was, of course, referring to the Civil War between the states and wondering how long before the next one will be.  Of course, he is thinking the next one will not be between states but between ideologies.
