The World Of Absolute Malarkey

What is a LIBERAL?  According to Wikipedia:

Liberalism is a Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support individual rights (including civil rights and human rights), democracy, secularism, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and a market economy.

What is a CONSERVATIVE?  According to Wikipedia:

Conservatism is the aesthetic, cultural, social, and political outlook that embodies the desire to conserve existing things, held to be either good in themselves, or better than the likely alternatives, or at least safe, familiar, and the objects of trust and affection. The central tenets of conservatism may vary in relation to the traditions and values of the culture and civilization in which it appears. In Western culture, conservatives seek to conserve a range of things such as the natural environment, classical and vernacular architecture, organized religion, parliamentary government, and property rights.  Adherents of conservatism often oppose modernism and seek a return to traditional values.

Both of these can have a very broad meaning.  I leave interpretation to anyone who views this. In all honesty, to me there is no pure liberal or conservative and the finger pointing at each other is caused by a select few that want to control your thought.  My belief system is independent with a large lean to liberalism.

Now, what are you?
