Conservative Republican and Liberal Democrat Beliefs compared.

We will take a look at Conservative Beliefs and compare them to Liberal Beliefs. To show how their Beliefs conflict within liberals own beliefs and defy logic and common sense.
Conservatives 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 to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Their policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
Liberals believe in governmental action to achieve equal opportunity and equality 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. Believe the role of the government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Believe that people are basically good. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the government to solve people's problems.
Conservatives believe human life begins at conception. Abortion is the murder of a human being. Nobody has the right to murder a human being. Support legislation to prohibit partial birth abortions, called the "Partial Birth Abortion Ban" Partial birth abortion is the killing of an unborn baby of at least 20 weeks by pulling it out of the birth canal with forceps, but leaving the head inside. An incision is made in the back of the baby's neck and the brain tissue is suctioned out. The head is then removed from the uterus.
Liberals believe a fetus is not a human life. The decision to have an abortion is a personal choice of a woman regarding her own body and the government should stay out of it. Women should be guaranteed the right to a safe and legal abortion, including partial birth abortion.
I find it moronic and totally illogical that liberals do not believe in the death penalty for criminals that commit crimes like murderer rape and child molesters. But they do advocate killing the unborn totally innocent beyond a shadow of a doubt, but it’s just fine to kill babies. How does that make any sense? Why do the liberals have such a big problem with conservatives siding with life rather than the liberals siding with death and somehow they think the choice of death is better and Conservatives are just stupid and we don’t get it. What’s there to get? It is what it is, killing the unborn.
Conservatives believe 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.
Liberals believe 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.
It is raciest to create laws that discriminate against one race to give favor to another. That is exactly what Affirmative action is a raciest law. As soon as this law was passed it discriminated against who ever was given favor over another because of skin color.
Conservatives believe the death penalty is a punishment that if it fits the Crime it is neither ‘cruel' nor ‘unusual'. Executing a murderer is the appropriate punishment for taking an innocent life.
Liberals believe 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 criminal execution risks killing an innocent person.
No Death penalty for criminals but its fine to kill babies. That is an upside down and twisted way of thinking.
Conservatives believe 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.
Liberals 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.
Liberals favor a market system in which government regulates the economy. This is exactly what Fascism and Nazism believes how an economic system should be run. Do some searches on these types of governments and you will see I am telling you, the truth.
Education - school vouchers
Conservatives believe 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.
Liberals believe School vouchers are untested experiments. We need to focus on more funding for existing public schools -to raise teacher salaries and reduce class size.
The public schools have been unsuccessful since I was in school this goes back to 1972. Nothing has changed now it’s still the same in 2010 or 38 years later and nothing changed. It’s still a very low grade of education teacher’s salaries have quadrupled and the children still graduate with a six grade education and can’t even read. It’s another repeat of the traits of a liberal to keep trying what has consistently failed and to completely ignore what does work and deny the success of anything that contradicts how they think things should be.
School vouchers are not untested and they have been around for as long as the public schools have been around. Remember all the stories of how rich kids get the best education from going to private schools. That’s not because there just rich, it’s because private run schools are just better and today there cheaper to run then public schools. It’s all about the Unions that control the schools; it’s not about a better education the liberals would like for you to believe.
Conservatives believe Desire clean water, clean air and a clean planet, just like everyone else. However, extreme environmental policies destroy jobs and damage the economy. Changes in global temperatures are natural over long periods of time. So far, science has not shown that humans can affect permanent change to the earth's temperature.
Liberals believe that conservatives don't care about protecting the environment.
Industrial growth harms the environment. Global warming is caused by an increased production of carbon dioxide. The U.S. is a major contributor to global warming because it produces 25% of the world's carbon dioxide. The U.S. should enact laws to significantly reduce that amount.
Scientists have only been able to measure the ozone since 1985 first liberals screamed about the whole in the ozone then it closed up on its own and the liberals shut up. Then came Global warming being caused by man and it has proven to be a hoax. The science now proves man has little to do with global warming or global cooling. It took $47 billion in tax payer money poured into the liberal toilet to come to that false conclusion that man is the cause of global warming or climate change.
Conservatives believe 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 against criminals. More guns mean less crime
Liberals believe 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 only way you can come to the liberal conclusion that the second amendment doesn’t give the people the right to the people to bear arms is if you don’t read the part that says, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. There is no other way to translate what it plainly spells out in the plainest English possible, unless you don’t read that part. The word in the original bill of rights is separated by a comma separates the militia and the people and these rights shall not be infringed upon. I have an original in my hand as I write this. I don’t need to lie or distort the truth as the liberals always do.
Guns don’t kill people or children, people do. If you left a gun sitting on the table and no one picked it up for 1000 years it wouldn’t kill anyone until a person picked it up and used it to kill someone. I once again find the logic of the liberal missing from their statements. It is funny how liberals blame an inanimate object like a gun for the crime of killing, yet the person who picks up the gun purposely to commit an act of murder is innocent. It’s not his or her fault it’s the guns fault.
Here is the truth of it all. The liberal progressive know they can’t take over the government and install there communist constitution style government as long as Americans are armed to the teeth as we are. This is also why they hate the military so much, as they take an oath to protect the constitution. It should be obvious by the liberals stated positions on constitutional law that they don’t like it and they want to destroy it.
Conservatives believe free healthcare provided by the government (socialized medicine) means that everyone will get the same poor-quality healthcare. The rich will continue to pay for superior healthcare, while all others will receive poor-quality free healthcare from the government. Health care should remain privatized. Conservatives support healthcare spending accounts.
Liberals believe 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
Conservatives Support legal immigration at current numbers, 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 or legal immigrants,
Liberals Support illegal immigration and increasing the number of legal immigrants permitted to enter the U.S. each year. Support blanket amnesty for current illegal immigrants. Believe that regardless of how they came to the U.S., illegal immigrants deserve U.S. government financial aid for college tuition. Liberals Support Visas for spouses and children to come to the U.S. Families shouldn't be separated. Illegal immigrants do the jobs that Americans do not want to do.
Conservatives know these facts
In the last debate on Illegal immigration only 18% of Americans wanted amnesty for illegal aliens and 82% were against it. The liberal beliefs would open the flood gates to millions pouring over the border to take advantage of the amnesty. This has been done two times before and that’s what the result was. This also allows the extended families numbering as many as 48 million more people legally coming into the country. Here is the big problem with allowing 48 million more people into the country. The larger the labor forces the cheaper the wages of all people. It works the same as demand and supply. History proves the larger the work force available to employers, the cheaper the wages that have to be paid. Don’t tell me this is a myth because I have firsthand experience and I have worked with Department of immigration on this problem before it became part of homeland security. This is another example of the liberals defying common sense and it’s as if they want to do everything possible to damage the country and its people in every way possible. Conservatives and the people are the enemy from my observations of liberal democrat actions for more then 40 years
Conservatives believe the phrase "separation of church and state" is not in the Constitution. For a very good reason it’s not in the Constitution. The First Amendment to the Constitution states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." This prevents the government from establishing a national church. However, it does not prevent God from being acknowledged in schools and government buildings. Oppose the removal of symbols of Christian heritage from public and government spaces. Government should not interfere with religion and religious freedom.
The liberal supports 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.
The very wording of the constitution says religion is allowed in public. The bill of rights specifically says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of a religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech. By prohibiting religion in public you are prohibiting religion and the freedom of speech. That would mean the liberal idea of prohibiting religion or prayer in public is against the law and is a direct violation of the bill of rights.
The phrase "separation of church and state" is not in the Constitution. That is just a fact. The liberal keep insisting it’s there but it’s not. The reason for that is they live in there fantasyland of just make it up as we go. They think you’re stupid and won’t check it for yourself and hoping you will believe that there telling you the truth. It clearly states in the constitution that no laws shall be passed that restrict religious freedom it is stated even in public. Separation of church and state is no were in the constitution, but liberals constantly lie to people and say it is.
Conservatives believe Marriage is between one man and one woman. Opinions differ on support for the creation of a constitutional amendment establishing marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Believe that requiring citizens to sanction same-sex relationships violates moral and religious beliefs of millions of Christians, Jews, Muslims and others who believe marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
Liberals believe 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. Opinions differ on whether this issue is equal to civil rights for African Americans
Liberals and progressives Democrats are a very sick group of people and I suggest they all see a psychologist and get counseling.
Conservatives believe 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 it 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.
Liberals 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.
Conservatives support lower taxes and a smaller government. 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.
Liberals Support higher taxes and a larger government. High taxes enable the government to do well and create jobs. We need high taxes for social welfare programs, to provide for the poor. We can't afford to cut taxes.
Liberals support higher taxes to create government jobs that become an ever growing burden on the American tax payer. Government doesn’t create wealth they destroy it. 230 years of American economic history proves this to be true. If you believe otherwise your information is flawed. I suggest you do some research on the subject of economics. You won’t find the truth at a liberal website or a liberal blog. There information is also flawed and it’s deliberate.
Liberals say we need high taxes for social welfare programs, to provide for the poor. Look at the section below on welfare. If we grow the economy and create jobs for these poor people they won’t need welfare.
United Nations (UN)
Conservatives believe 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. History shows that the United States, not the UN, is the global force for spreading freedom, prosperity, tolerance and peace. The U.S. should never subvert its national interests to those of the UN.
Liberals believe the United States has a moral and a legal obligation to support the United Nations. 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.
This is just another example of the liberal wanting to keep trying failed systems. The United Nations has never been effective in any way. They can’t even distribute food to starving people without stealing billions in food aid that the United States paid for they can’t be trusted to do anything humanitarian or peacekeeping. Conservatives believe the United Nations is a waste of valuable resources and should not be consulted about any matters of importance.
Bill Clinton once put our troupes under the United Nations flag in Bosnia and that is a direct violation of the constitution. This is just more proof the liberals have no respect for the constitution as they continually support any thing that violates constitutional law and try to make new rules as they go that circumvent or violates the constitution. Shame on them, these are a sick bunch of people that still support and trust this group of thugs.
War on terror or terrorism
Conservatives believe 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. The terrorists must be stopped and destroyed.
Liberals believe 9/11 was caused by America's arrogant foreign policy. America needs to stop angering other countries. The threat posed by terrorism is exaggerated by President Bush for his own political advantage.
Sure it’s our fault by the liberal’s way of thinking, it’s always our fault. The perfect example of this attitude is president Oboma going around the world apologizing for America everywhere he goes. He is a disgrace to the country and his attitude about the United States is a form of seditious treason. Conservatives have the opposite point of view based on facts as we see it and as it is in reality not in fantasyland. America has done far more good than bad. America has become the policeman of the world and what will they all do when we are gone?
Conservatives Oppose long-term welfare. 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.
Liberals support welfare. We need welfare 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.
Welfare has destroyed the black American family and keeps those who are poor people poor. They keep voting for their pay checks by voting for the liberal, progressive democrats. There has been no improvement in the lives or standard of living of the poor until they get out of the government social systems. It’s another example of liberals wanting to continue failed programs even after 50 years of complete failure. After welfare reform 12 million people got off the welfare programs and no one starved to death. They simple just went out and got a job. These laws were reversed by Barak Oboma in February of 2010. Being poor should be intolerable so people strive to get out of that situation. If you make them comfortable in there poverty most people will stay in it forever.
It seems to me that the liberal progressive democrats represent every social problem in our country. The liberals have created many programs to supposedly fix these problems and every one of their ideas has failed. But yet they consistently want to keep on trying these failed social systems. That’s Albert Einstein description of insanity and this is a conservatives take as well. The liberals own beliefs and their actions are in conflict with their stated beliefs. Liberals say we want to be the best we can be. We want as few people suffering as possible. Yet they keep on doing things that conflict with those goals and create an even bigger and ever growing problem. This is all a distraction from matters of more importance and it’s a liberal tactic, while they change other things we aren’t paying attention to. This is how they got control over all three branches of government.
