Superman, obviously is a Conservative, look at his hair. That shizz was definitly Reagen inspired. Hell, he was even an alien!!! Prolly in bed with those Mexican types's my guess, what with their immigration and such. And Spidey, sure as $h!t was a Liberal, what with those street smarts and funky-ass theme. He got down and you know it! He'd never sell his soul to a corporate sponser. Underground. Grass-Roots man. Graaaaass-roots... thats right fellas. Spidey knew how to keep it real. He was in love with "Mary-Jane" :naughty: mmmhmmmmm... spidey-senses tingling anyone?

Everyone's a liberal, but the word has become a tad bit leprous since the days of my main main Locke.

Liberal - a political view that prefers government interaction in economic and social actvities. In the economic realm, the emphasis is that government is a big consumer and spender and via taxation can create jobs and economic opportunity at least through government agency staffing and aid (welfare)programs. This actions of the government to reduce unemployment is either through expanded unemployment compensation programs or educational grants. The belief is higher taxes on individuals and businesses can fund all these governmental endeavors. These taxes tend to disadvantage businesses and individuals as the government emphasis is not to create wealth but to provide an adequate standard of living for most citizens. Basically, trust is in the government and not the individual.

This is socialism. Democratic party =/= a socialist party... ...at all Seriously the funny part is that both sides are bashing each others, calling themselves nazis and communists, while in truth Democrats and Republicans are, basically, the same. Its just that the wonders of a 2 party system makes it so extremists pick either the "rightist" (Republican) or "center-right" (Democrats) party, and act as if it was either the neo-fascist arab genociding party or stalinist parties, depending on their political alleagance. In fact, it seems as if these two parties can be watever they and their members want them to be at any particular moment, but in reality I'd say they are both quite similar, with a few changes in rethoric and different allies (who do nothing else but spread and spout various B.S., wether they are conservative or "liberal"). Besides, your definitions of both liberals and conservatives is wrong, simply because this is relative. Liberals want changes, Conservatives want status quo (or return to an ancient status quo that existed in the '50 or before). Examples : Al Quada are conservatives, they want a return to old islam and strict obediance to traditions. Bush, to the Afghans, is probably an ultra-liberal. No need to explain why... Other examples : Liberals in the 19th century were capitalists (and still are considered like it in more leftist countries). The old stalinist politburo members in the late-1980 Soviet Communist Party were considered conservatives, because they wanted to stick to the old methods.

Everyone's a liberal, but the word has become a tad bit leprous since the days of my main main Locke.

Screw Locke, JJR's the man! (no really, we are lucky to have had Locke. Way better than silly Hobbes for example)

Lad, I majored in international relations at a pretty decent school; I know a _little_ bit about political trends and theories.

I was kind of hoping for that general gist of an answer.

Your next task, as you've completed your last two assignments (nearly) to my satisfaction, is to reconcile the definitions with your original post, as well as with their popular usage, and to point out obvious logical discrepancies.

Then, dormant cerebral portions dealing with political reasoning awakened, you can pat yourself on the back and mozy on back to your cocktail with the knowledge of a job well done.

Frankly, I sometimes wonder where I fit in as a low-tax gun-rights social & economic laissez faire, law and order and political accountability kind of guy who likes good public education and transportation and doesn't like to go invading countries left and right. It certainly isn't in any political party I know.

I start liking this Fuzzy for President thing a bit too much.

The School of Hard Knocks isn't a decent school.

And banging that french broad does not count as "majoring in international relations"

@Yoss: she's Swiss. And I have a killer taste for ossietre, which is how I was single-handedly able to defeat the Soviet Union. @Lobo: "Captain Renault" will be towel boy at the Presidential Sauna. But I like it, I do.
