    People think this is complicated, but it can be summed up in one sentence written by a conservative talking about what he calls GOP TV.

    The Daily Northwestern : Misulonas: GOP TV

    Anyone want to guess what it is?

    "The difference between conservatives and liberals"

    Liberals want to help the poor by keeping them poor and conservatives want to help the poor help themselves.

    Thanks for the laugh!!!! That's a silly and inaccurate over generalization.

    Coming from a conservative talking head it probably boils down to something like "Conservatives = good, Liberals = bad."

    That is it in a nutshell. The way I see it liberals think society forces people to do things, conservatives think people make their own choices. Liberals are pessimists who think people have no chance unless they get help, conservatives are optimists who think people can do anything.

    that is idiocy.

    provide proof of one thing that "conservativism" ever advanced.

    here's a hint: you can't... because if it were an advancement, it wouldn't be conservative, it would be liberal.

    you know...words have meanings.
