An interesting treatise on American democracy, and definition of "liberal" vs "conservative", can be found here.



The term "liberal" applies to those who favored a change toward political equality. Conversely the term "conservative" applies to those who favored continuing or increasing authoritarian rule, most often by a economic elite, often allied with military or religious elites.


Sounds familiar?

This is a good evaluation of American govt. as well. It makes comparisons and gives examples of how our government is doing exactly what our Founding Fathers said not to do.
