Liberals vs Conservatives

Different value systems and world views


Believe in governmental action to achieve equity for all, and that it is the duty of the State to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. They believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that people are not in need. They believe that people are basically good and that it is the tyranny of society that produces evil.


Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve people’s problems.

They believe if the government always just did a little more for people, life would be better for all people.


They believe that societal unfairness is the result of repressive cultural issues that could be changed with dismantling of  institutions, and reallocation of government policies and funding to help perceived underdogs. These views do not prioritize an individuals personal choices with regard to their circumstances. 

These views are generally accompanied with a delusional utopian end goal, with no evidence for the potential of avoiding the death and destruction all former socialist-communist regimes have succumb to in the past. 


Believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be restricted to prevent infringement on the freedoms necessary to pursue their own goals.


Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

Here, people learning how to solve there own problems for themselves and through their communities is part of natural human development. When decisions are made for people at a higher level (such as in the government), they lack understanding for all the processes that occur, leading to inability to develop critical thinking skills and a lack of accountability for personal choices. 

Conservatives understand that life is not fair and they aim to consider the issues that arise from the dark sides of human nature, including totalitarianism. They believe limiting government power is essential to preventing this.



The Liberal Value System over emphasizes compassion at the cost of other values. It concentrates more on intentions than results.

The Liberal World View centers around 'It's a Small World' ideology. This often results in virtue signaling for perceived underdogs or people starving in third world countries over compassion for one's community.


The Conservative Value System aims for a balance in all core values. With regard to compassion, they understand over concern can result from an observers discomfort rather than really considering the best outcome for the one suffering.


Suffering is a natural part of life and the first rules for being a doctor and nurse are good rules to live by: 'Do no harm.' and 'Don't do for another what they can do for themselves.'

The Conservative World View leans more towards the 'Realist'. Borders and security are necessary to protect freedoms and liberties for citizens.

  • Social issues of all kinds

  • Equality of outcome disguised with unequal opportunities that lower standards for perceived underdogs

  • Activist movements: LGBTQ, BLM, Feminists etc.

  • Saving the environment; generally without a full understanding of the issues, or the negative impact and lack of benefit of policies implemented (Green New Deal)



Conservatives believe social issues should not be managed by the government. When the government gets involved in social issues it is called the nanny state and has detrimental consequences on individual personal development. 

Issues that do belong in political government:

  • Issues related to economic development while preserving freedoms 

  • State defense.

  • The government is there to work for the people, not manage people’s lives. Period.


A fetus is not a human life. The decision to have an abortion rests solely with the woman.  It is  her body and the government should stay out of it. Any women should be guaranteed the right to a safe and legal abortion, including partial birth abortion, paid for by the tax payers as needed.



No one is guaranteed the right to any health care service or any service for that matter. Abortions should be allowed and available to women who need them and paid for by the patient and their insurance. The federal and state government should not be providing extra funding for abortions and planned parenthood should be abolished as women's health services should be available via the same means as other health care services. 

The social issues related to the high number of abortions we see today should be addressed within families and communities: supporting the traditional roles for men and women, modern over sexualization and meaningless sex cultural trends should be discouraged. Women should take care to avoid substance abuse and situations that make them vulnerable to unwanted pregnancies on non-consensual sex.  Men should re-assert their role as protector and women should be appreciative of good men.



Due to prevalent racism in the past, minorities were deprived of the same education and employment opportunities as whites. We need to make up for that. Support affirmative action based on the belief that America is still a racist society. Minorities still lag behind whites in all statistical measurements of success. Also, the presence of minorities creates diversity.


People should be admitted to schools and hired for jobs based on their ability. It is unfair to use race as a factor in the selection process. Reverse-discrimination is not a solution for racism or past racism.

Systemic racism and white supremacy are not at all rampant in America. This is toxic propaganda the left pushes to create cultural instability and maintain it’s voter base. The only real systemic racism is the left fueled politically correct white race hatred and vast racist acceptance initiatives that favor people of color over people of European and Asian descent. 

Minorities lagging behind in statistical measures is exacerbated by the repercussions of nanny state policies.


We should abolish the death penalty. The death penalty is inhumane and is ‘cruel and unusual’ punishment. It does not deter crime. Imprisonment is the appropriate punishment. Every execution risks killing an innocent person.


In extreme criminal, gruesome, and serial killing circumstances the death penalty can be an appropriate punishment. It is neither cruel or unusual in these circumstances and can function to deter further crimes.



Favor a market system in which government regulates the economy. We need government to protect us against big businesses. Unlike the private sector, the government is motivated by public interest. We need government regulation to level the playing field.


The free market system, competitive capitalism, and private enterprise afford the widest opportunity and the highest standard of living for all. Free markets produce more economic growth, more jobs and higher standards of living than those systems burdened by excessive government regulation. The government is not really motivated by public interest. By design the government is interested  in growing and maintaining itself, much like a large complex corporation. 


Critical Race theory and LGBTQ issues should be taught to young kids in school.


School vouchers are untested experiments. We need to focus on more funding for existing public schools -to raise teacher salaries and reduce class size.

Strict covid related protocols should be followed in schools and teachers should not be expected to teach in the classroom. 



Critical Race Theory(CRT) is Inaccurate, dangerous and divisive.  Teaching CRT and LGBTQ awareness is indoctrination and harmful to children.

Masks are not useful and children should be able to go to class with their piers without masks.

School vouchers will give all parents the right to choose good schools for their children, not just those who can afford private schools. Parents (who pay the taxes that fund the schools) should decide how and where to educate their child.



The Second Amendment gives no individual the right to own a gun, but allows the state to keep a militia (National Guard). Guns kill people. Guns kill children.


The Second Amendment gives the individual the right to keep and bear arms. Gun control laws do not thwart criminals. You have a right to defend yourself and your family against criminals. Especially as progressives move to drastically limit police and their abilities. 


Support universal government-supervised health care. There are millions of Americans who can’t afford health insurance. They are being deprived of a basic right to healthcare.


Healthcare is not a right. Free healthcare provided by the government (socialized medicine) means that everyone will get the same poor-quality healthcare, which means inadequate health care for all with little to no personal accountability for health care requested services, and intractable expectations for healthcare workers. Health care should remain privatized. Support Healthcare Spending Accounts. Remove restrictions to increase Healthcare supply and create complete cost transparency to improve personal accountability and drive down necessary costs.



Support blanket amnesty for current illegal immigrants. Believe that regardless of how they came to the U.S., illegal immigrants deserve:

  • U.S. government healthcare, employment assistance, welfare, & financial aid for college tuition.

  • Visas for spouse/children to come to the U.S. Families shouldn’t be separated without regard for child trafficking considerations.

  • Illegal immigrants do the jobs that Americans do not want to do.



Support legal immigration at non-destabilizing rates, but do not support illegal immigration. Government should enforce immigration laws. Oppose President Bush’s amnesty plan for illegal immigrants. Those who break the law by entering the U.S. illegally should not have the same rights as those who obey the law by entering legally.

If there were a decrease in cheap, illegal immigrant labor, employers would have to substitute higher-priced domestic employees, legal immigrants, or perhaps increase mechanization. Americans should encourage Americans to do and hire for jobs perceived to be jobs that Americans do not want to do.

Liberal Democrats encourage illegal immigration because it fuels their voter base. They are not concerned with taxing our country socially and economically in favor of an unstable welfare state.


Support the separation of church and state. Religious expression has no place in government. Support the removal of all references to God in public and government spaces. Religion should not interfere with government.

Advocate for Islam. Oppose the State of Israel.

Support removal of Christian heritage symbols and flags but will fly BLM and LGBTQ etc. flags.



The phrase “separation of church and state” is fine, and generally a non-issue. Oppose the removal of symbols of Christian heritage from public and government spaces. Government should not interfere with religion and religious freedom. And the removal of God and traditionally Christian references form public should be discouraged as the lack or realization of the deeply ingrained messages this religion has in our cultures history should be respected. 

The ‘dealth of religion’ and rise of modern hero worship of celebrities has contributed to the moral degredation of culture and society. Awareness here and reassertion of traditional values is a good way to help mend the damage done to families and communities.


Marriage should be legal for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples to ensure equal rights for all. All individuals, regardless of their sex, have the right to marry. Believe that prohibiting same-sex citizens from marrying denies them of their civil rights. 


Marriage for LGBTQ people is not a major issue. A couple of any combination should be able to marry. The system should still have deterrents in place for people abusing the legal benefits for marriage. This is again, a social issue, not suitable for state and federal government. 

Culturally the promotion of LGBTQ sexuality should not be supported by government funding. And these same ideals should absolutely not be promoted in children’s education system. The psychological influences in personal development should be a serious consideration, and life altering surgeries should not be promoted for people of any age.



Generally oppose change to the current Social Security system. Opinions vary on whether the current system is in financial trouble. Changing the current system will cause people to lose their Social Security benefits. Support a cap on Social Security payments to the wealthy


The current Social Security system is in serious financial trouble. Changes are necessary because the U.S. will be unable to maintain the current system in the future. Support proposal to allow a portion of Social Security dollars withheld to be put into an account chosen by the individual, not the government.



Support higher taxes and a larger government. High taxes enable the government to do good and create jobs. We need high taxes for social welfare programs, to provide for the poor. We can’t afford to cut taxes.


Support lower taxes and a smaller government. Support complete transparency and accountability for government management of tax dollars. Support more efficient management of tax dollars overall. Lower taxes create more incentive for people to work, save, invest, and engage in entrepreneurial endeavors. Money is best spent by those who earn it.


The United States has a moral and a legal obligation to support the United Nations (UN). The UN can be effective in promoting peace and human rights. The U.S. should not have acted in Iraq without UN approval. The U.S. should submit its national interests to the greater good (as defined by the UN).



The UN has repeatedly failed in its essential mission: to preserve world peace. The wars, genocide and human rights abuses of the majority of its member states (and the UN’s failure to stop them) prove this point. The U.S. should never subvert its national interests to those of the UN.



9/11 was caused by America’s arrogant foreign policy. America needs to stop angering other countries. The threat posed by terrorism is exaggerated.


The world toward which the Militant Islamists strive cannot peacefully co-exist with the Western world. In the last decade, Militant Islamists have repeatedly attacked Americans and American interests here and abroad. Awareness for the threats from islamic extremism is a must.


Support welfare and the need to provide for the poor. Conservatives oppose welfare because they are not compassionate toward the poor. We have welfare to bring fairness to American economic life. Without welfare, life below the poverty line would be intolerable.



Oppose long-term welfare and state resource abuses. Government handouts should be efficiently managed and discouraged where possible. We need to provide opportunities to make it possible for poor and low-income workers to become self-reliant. It is far more compassionate and effective to encourage a person to become self-reliant, rather than keeping them dependent on the government for money.
