It's no secret that Conservatives and Liberals are completely opposite in philosophies--- however many of our younger generations are unaware of the CORE differences as each side has been painted very differently by the media. Let's explore. There will be future posts on each difference per core value.
Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, American Value, and a strong national defense. They also believe that the Government should only be present to provide the people with freedom. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
Liberals believe in Government to achieve Equality for All. They believe Government is essential to alleviate social ills, civil liberties, individual and human rights. Liberals look to the government to solve all needs, to make sure no one is in need. Government should be present in all aspect of an individuals life.
