The current definition of liberal is: someone who advocates economic equality
and personal freedom. In other words, liberals are the antithesis of
conservatives (in theory anyway).
Conservatives: advocate submission to
their concept of conformity - usually based on religious convictions. They
want everyone to toe their line. Conservatives also oppose sharing the
wealth. They feel they've "earned it" and expect everyone to do likewise,
thus they oppose welfare and most democratic institutions that seek to help
those economically disadvantaged.
I am proud to be a Liberal !
