Sue: Please Define Liberal, Conservative For Me

Sue: Someone would have to define, on a pretty limited basis, the difference between conservative and liberal for that statistic to make any sense.

DFO: Sue has a good point here. I'd tend to define liberal/conservative along the lines of social issues -- abortion, gay rights, school choice, etc. Politically, everything's goofy now because the Republicans in Congress have been spending like drunken Democrats. So, fiscal responsibility no longer can be ascribed to them. How would you describe the difference between liberals and conservatives? Is it like pornography? You know it when you see it?
