On the average, the Democrats are considered more liberal and the Republicans are considered more conservative. However, there are liberal Republicans and conservative Democrats. The Republicans tend to favor less government and the Democrats tend to favor more government, when dealing with domestic problems and individual and states' rights. Republicans tend to favor economic laws that regulate as little as possible. Democrats favor legislation that regulates industry for the protection of the consumer. Democrats tend to favor some sort of government aid for those individuals who need assistance. Republicans tend to favor was to help the states and local, private charities help individuals in need. Libertarians believe in a strong support of individual civil liberties, private property and the free market economy with little government intervention. They favor the least amount of government interference. They believe the individual should be left alone to do as he/she wishes, as long as there is no harm to any other person or group.

In short, yes--in other words, the 20's were both liberal and conservative.. The 20's were full of conflict between liberals and conservatives over a variety of topics. Thoug…h this may be an over-generalization, the center of liberal thought was in urban areas, while rural areas were more conservative. These two competing world views argued over: the changing role of women in society, women's fashion, evolution vs. creationism, free speech vs. fear of communism, alcohol, and even music.. Since there were two sides to every issue, it would be hard to characterize the 1920's as either liberal or conservative. However, these issues became important because the status quo was changing--becoming more liberal. So, I suppose one could argue that the 20's were "liberal" with conservatives trying to hold on and maintain the status quo.. I suppose one could also argue that the 1920's were conservative due a variety of factors, including presidential politics, the Palmer Raids and the Red Scare, the rise of the KKK, Prohibition, etc.
Neither. The NDP is the NDP. The Liberals are the Liberals and the Conservatives are the Conservatives.
efore one can say why one is a liberal, one can hardly avoid trying to say what a liberal is. In the semantic warfare of our age, world like "liberalism" and "conservatism" ha…ve come almost to acknowledge fashions rather than to express meanings. Thus a few years back even some conservatives began to call themselves liberals - now even some liberals are beginning to call themselves conservatives. But, if one cannot at first say what the difference between liberalism and conservatism is, one can at least say what it isn't. Many of the current attempts at the identification of species, I regret to say, seem to me misleading or erroneous. Thus we are told that the difference between liberal and conservative is that the liberal believes in the perfectibility of man while the conservative has a conviction of human limitation and original sin. Yet no one has preached to this generation more effectively of the reality of human imperfection than the liberal (in politics, at least.) Reinhold Niebuhr, while it was Andrew Carnegie, a conservative, who used to say of man that there was no "conceivable end to his march to perfection." And it would be hard to argue for example that the words of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the conservative, show a greater sense of the frailty of human striving or the tragedy of the human condition than those of the liberal Adlai E. Stevenson.
Because they cover the "centre" and "centre-right" which is where most Canadians' values and beliefs lie.
If you mean in the United States, the conservative is pro-small government, the liberal is for more government intervention.
Much more conservative
It is hard to say which party is better. Both have their faults and both have their strong points. That is why there are two parties. One will get into office and clean up the… mess its predecessor made and then start making its own mess, and then the reverse happens. We need both. Alright, here is the complete, un-bias answer. We need both, both have good ideas and bad ideas. But if your asking which is better. Again, being un bias. Conservatism works out better than libertarianism. A political poll taken in 2010 showed that the conservative ideas on: gun control, marijuana legalization, immigration, environment regulation, media censorship, and prostitution, work out better than the liberal ideas. But liberal have it on: abortion, religion in schools, and the war on terror.
They have a liberal stance, as shown by Al Gore.
In the United States, the Democratic Party.
It wasn't either. It wasn't a political party with an ideology, it was a protest against what the American colonists saw as unlawful taxation of tea. It should also be not…ed that politics in the 1770's didn't function on the same liberal-conservative scale that we know today.
Liberal-Conservative Party was created in 1864.
The Green Party is dedicated to issues such as social justice, the environment, nonviolence, respect for diversity and sustainability. They typically align themselves with… leftist parties. Thus they most likely consider themselves to be liberal.
Although both the Republicans and Democrats have characteristics ofboth Conservative and Liberal. Republicans are associated as Conservative, and Democrats areassociated as Li…beral.
