When I do a Google search of, "What does a Democrat/Republican stand for?", I get the following responses for each query:
Republican: 1. A person advocating or supporting republican government.
Democrat : 1. An advocate or supporter of democracy.
I consider myself more of a conservative than anything else. So I also queried Google as to what Conservatives and Liberals stand for. This was the response:
Conservative: 1. Holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.
Liberal: 1. Open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.
So in essence, I seek to understand what exactly each side of the aisle stand for. I'm hoping this thread might be educational to ATS members when it comes to understanding the views of other people.
So I ask that members of ATS to explain what their respective beliefs are and to remain respectful of opposing opinions. I'm hoping to learn a bit about conservatism that I don't know. As well as learn about why liberals hold true to their beliefs.
