Well I hope you feel better now that you have become angry in your posting. That's another difference between the two groups.

I agree with much of what you say. I was speaking more specifically of left/right politics where personal ideologies of my professors were not expressed.
I see that you have not shaken the indoctrination against hippies : )

Well my IQ is around 145 (higher than about 99.7% of the world) and I tend to favor the Republican party. However, both sides are corrupt, so I really don't even pay much attention anymore. In my opinion it's all rigged anyway.

Well, the only time Liberals have a consistent message is when they are in the middle of a Straw Man debate with the Right and nobody invited a Liberal to the conversation.

The major difference is, a strong libertarian type conservative will look at the constitution and see that is the absolute pinnicle of society...that it is perfect, and nothing more should ever be added..basically our civilization peaked hundreds of years ago and all we can hope to achieve is a holding pattern for eternity.
A liberal mindset will see the constitution as a fantastic piece of legislation, and we can also put things on top of this as our collective wisdom and prosperity grows...in order to form a more perfect union as it were.
