Conservative hardly have a monopoly on that game.
Do any of you ever get tired of this false nonsense? It appears not.
The very people who attempt to define "liberal" and "conservative" are the very people who's opinions, with few exceptions, swing with the breezes of public opinion.
But, hey, if it makes you happy? Carry on.
- Conservative Belief = Subjective good for humanity based on religion and trying to repeat what we've done in history

Something I tell kids a lot when they're growing into their "political selves" is "It takes both wings to fly" referring to the right wing and the left wing and try to show them that the differences can sometimes lead to progress. Nobody wins when extremes are taken, but when two opposing sides work together and make compromises, many things can be accomplished.

Basically, some people are just plain wrong. Socially, morally, ethically. It may be their personal belief system, but that doesn't change the fact that they are wrong.
This can go to either aspect of the ideological spectrum (I admit) but (being conservative) we are less wrong.
But that is life.
You put three people in a room, and you'll have 6 different opinions on any given subject.
People are going to disagree. That's what makes us human. We are a combative, argumentative, aggressive, obnoxious species.
The sooner you can come to the realisation that no-one will ever agree with another on everything, the better you may feel.
Good luck, OP.
Just enjoy the variety that life offers.
