In Barack Obama

Was Woodrow Wilson a conservative or a liberal or a moderate and did he make concessions to any type of group for political gain?
Answer to question on Woodrow Wilson It depends upon which era oneis judging Woodrow Wilson. If one is judging him by today's erathen Wilson is fairly conservative; however Wilson embraced manypolicies that a traditional conservative would never approve of,namely internationalism, joining an interna…tional peace group (TheLeague of Nations), fighting in a foreign war against a nation thatmeant us no harm, and spreading democracy. Most traditional conservatives prefer a non-interventionist foreignpolicy (not an isolationist one) and would prefer to keep out ofwar unless it is a last resort. By today's era Wilson would be considered socially conservative andit is hard to imagine a religious man such as Woodrow Wilsonsupporting abortion and gay rights. By his own era Wilson was considered a moderate. He was nowherenear as liberal as William Jennings Bryan and socially he was instep with the times. He was considered a progressive in that hedesired for America to make the world safe for democracy, a hardsell with the American people who preferred a non-interventionistapproach. The answer to your question really depends on how one looks at it.Wilson was certainly a moderate in his era and a conservative byour own. This is mainly because over time our society has movedfarther to the left to the point where many liberals consider FDRto have been a moderate when in his own era FDR was considered farleft. Matthew Randquist If you look at Wilson's economics, you can conclude that he wasmostly centrist, neither left-wing (and scoffing at the left-wingPeoples' and Socialist Parties) or right-wing (not Wall St.'s bestfriend, exactly, considering his anti-trust laws). However, his social policies would be considered very reactionarytoday. He was extremely racist (even by the standards of his ownday), and it is hard to imagine him supporting gay marriage orabortion in our times. As for the police state, he believed thatthe system of checks and balances was inconvenient; he signed theEspionage Act of 1917, which silenced anti-war protesters likeEugene V. Debs. In short, while his economic policies are to the left of today's"center-left" parties (which have more or less moved to the right),they were centrist when compared to FDR and other left-leaningDemocrats, and his reactionary social policies make him veryauthoritarian. For this reason, Wilson could be best characterizedas a Third Positionist, in its original meaning. T. J. The top explanation is that he is a modern day conservative, andsome of his ideals do align to conservatism, but if you looked atthe things he did, in the whole, he was fairly liberal and is moreof a modern day liberal. Even though the liberalism back around theend of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th was verydifferent to the liberalism of today. So, in conclusion, Woodrow Wilson was more liberal, being in thefact that he was a progressive, similar to Theodore Roosevelt andmuch of the politicians of today. If you want a detailed explanation of Woodrow Wilson, I suggestthat you read books similar to Woodrow Wilson and the Roots ofModern Liberalism, written by Ronald J. Pestritto.

"He's right," Charles Barkley said of Mellencamp. " The word conservative means discriminatory practically. It's a form of political discrimination. [Conservatives are] against gay marriage and for a war that makes no sense. A war that was based on faulty intelligence. That's all they ever talk abou…t. That and immigration. Another discriminatory argument for political gain. ". Barkley's shift against conservatism may also have something to do with his interest in poverty. "My No. 1 priority is to help poor people ," Barkley has said. "In this country, 90% of the money is controlled by 10% of the people, and that's not right.". Seems pretty liberal to me. He has claimed in the past to be conservative (even thought about running for political office as a republican), but comments like the ones above seem to contradict that claim. Hope this answers your question.. PDM ( Full Answer )
Answer . The meanings of the terms differ between sources and alter according to the politics of the era. However, Lyndon Johnson could probably be safely called a "radical" in most places, a "liberal" in North America and a "socialist" in Europe without any of these titles being wrong per se .… The term "liberal moderate" has a specific meaning in the United States and it would not be wrong to describe him as such (although it would be overly simplistic). Some people thought he was a conservative early in his career, but the evidence rarely bore this out. ( Full Answer )
Conservatives and Liberals . Very briefly stated, here are the different beliefs of Conservatives and Liberals.. Conservatives ideals are based on the belief in the capability of others and the attendant accountability i.e. personal responsibility. The individual, not the government, is responsi…ble for individual actions. All government should be limited and be representative of the people. They believe in free market economy, individual liberty, traditional values and morals, and a strong national military for defense. The role of the government is to protect the freedom of the people so that individuals can pursue their own goals and desires. The emphasis is on the state to solve its own problems and for the individual to solve his/her own problems.. Liberals believe in a strong government that acts to absolve others from accountability based on their belief that Americans generally incapable. Seeing people as incapable they feel compelled to protect promote equal opportunity for all people in the nation. It is the job of the government (state) to help solve social ills and to protect the civil liberties of all. Liberals have a strong belief in individual and human rights. The role of the government should be to protect and guarantee that no person is in need. Thus, liberals would accept governmental policies such as national medical insurance for all. Liberals emphasis the basic goodness of people and the need for government to help solve problems. ( Full Answer )
What is the difference between very liberal liberal conservative moderate and apathetic in terms of politics?
Generally speaking, conservatives are the embodiment of left brain thinking. They are logical, practical and firm on ideas of right and wrong. They value authority and loyalty to the group. in family life, they often discipline their children through punishments and rewards. Their career paths, poli…tics, causes, and solutions reflect these values Generally speaking, liberals are the embodiment of right brain thinking. They are innovative and analytical and believe that labeling inhibits brainstorming and finding optimal solutions. They place value on competence (not authority), and principles (rather than affiliation), In family life, they are process oriented, and these values are also reflected in their work and political stances. There are pro's and con's to each way of functioning. While conservatives may sometimes be guilty of knee-jerk reactions, in cases where decisive action is necessary, liberals still have their calculators and are subtracting one...carry the two.... In scenarios that are complex, or require finesse, conservatives can be "bulls in the china shop". Religious conservatives blame liberals for the problems in society because in their desire to consider all things, they feel liberals leave the door wide open for many things that are not beneficiary to society. Spiritual liberals blame conservatives for the problems in society because in failing to consider all things, they do not assess the problem fully, and in so doing, fail to include all the variables that are required in order to properly solve the equation and create meaningful and effective responses. When the two groups are at odds, nothing gets accomplished. When the two groups value each other (and are aware of their own short-comings) they are able to solve problems more completely and within realistic parameters. Moderates see good things in each group and operate from the middle. (However, "splitting the difference" is a logical fallacy, and "meeting in the middle" may simply convolute problems, rather than solving them.) When moderates act as "moderators" they can be helpful. People who are apathetic have either given up, or no longer care. They do not participate in the democratic process and are not politically active. ( Full Answer )
A liberal believes that government can be used to alleviate social ills. A conservative holds that individuals are responsible for their own situation, and government should not be involved. A moderate holds an intermediate position between liberal and conservative. Democrats tend to be liber…als and Republicans tend to be conservatives. Independents do not mark themselves as members of either of the two parties. A Democrat supports the policies of the Democratic party. Likewise Republicans. Each party has a set of guiding principles, and policy objectives they would like to accomplish. According to modern day university professors, conservative is used to describe any person or organization that is an oppressor, and liberal is used to describe any person or group that is oppressed.

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. Though this may be an over-generalization, the center of liberal thought was in urban areas, while rural areas were more conservat…ive. 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. ( Full Answer )
There are very few conservative vegetarians. Conservatives tend to value their freedom very highly, and as most people enjoy meat, conservatives think of vegetarianism as handing over your freedom to eat what you like. Often they view all the instances of meat-eating in the Bible as a carte blanche… to eat any meat today. Liberals think more about the effects of their diet choices, and when you think of all the various horrors of industrial meat farming, it makes sense to stop supporting it. Liberals can also tend to think of animals being on an equal plane with humans, while conservatives, being steeped in biblical thinking, recall with relish God's command to take dominion over the earth and rule over it. God, in fact, created animals to be Adam's companions (pets, basically) and then later said they were all right to eat. He never said anything about stuffing animals in crates and cruelly squeezing from them every drop of profit available, but I've found that the conservatives I know (I grew up immersed in them) just don't care. You are kidding me, aren't you? I am very conservative and a vegan. Conservatives absolutely do care about the care and treatment of animals. If you go to our local shelter, most of the donations are from, you guessed it, Conservatives. Personally, I think that it is a matter of respect, whether for animals or people.... Whether Liberal or Conservative. Your statement has no basis in fact or statistics. Most of us "grew up" eating meat. That is the way it was. Things have changed over the years. Knowledge is power. I taught in a low income, very liberal school district. There were no vegans there and they made fun of me. By the end of the term, the children were more accepting of my views and I certainly understood theirs. Conservatism is based on the belief that the Government should stay out of our personal lives and that the individual is responsible for his/her well-being. Liberalism believes that the Government should control everything from highways to health care. When you raise taxes you cut off donations(by either eliminating them all together or taking away the tax credit) to all of the Shelters (Animal and People). . . the money that you had to donate becomes essential to your well being. Liberal Government spending means less individual freedom. Conservative Government spending puts more money in the pockets of individuals and allows those with extra money to support the causes they wish to support. ( Full Answer )
haha this is a good question... If the person is a moderate, it just depends on what party they want to be identified with.

Politically, it depends upon the person. Temperamentally, they are a very conservative people: meaning they do not like change or innovation. The U.S. Supreme Court, for example, has always been the most conservative branch of the federal government. The only real exception to this was the Warren (1…953-1969) and Burger (1969-1986) courts. I also read a book once about medieval European universities, and the author, Hastings Rashdall, when speaking about the law school at the University of Bologna, mentioned the "instinctive conservatism" of the legal profession. The author was an English academic writing in the late 19th century, and this remark totally resonated with me in 21st century America. So there must be something to this idea. I'm not sure exactly why this is, but I think it's because laws are always changing, and they don't want to deal with the change. It seems like a justifiable reason to me. Answer The legal profession overall is perceived to be more conservative. However, that general profile may be misleading because there are so many areas of law that attract certain types of individuals and many degrees of liberal and conservative. It typically depends on what type of law they practice. Corporate lawyers would certainly tend to be very conservative. After all, their job is to protect big business from taxes, government interference, their own employees and lawsuits. Any entity that advocates for corporations must have a very conservative slant. Prosecutors tend to be very conservative. A conservative administration will appoint conservative Supreme Court justices and federal judges to prevent the laws from being changed to be made more liberal. Defense lawyers are predominantly liberal. They are the ones who argue constitutional law the most and try to obtain broad and more liberal interpretations that expand rights. Conservatives do not like tort law, they hate people who sue corporations that injure people and doctors who make mistakes that cause death or injuries. So, perhaps some trial lawyers are more liberal, looking out for the rights of citizens to be compensated for their damages and suing insurance companies that won't pay. Regarding changes in the law, depending on the particular case, both conservative and liberal lawyers at times do want to be able to depend on unchanging laws so they and their clients know what to expect in a legal action. Some lawyers are often trying to change the law, especially criminal law. We have a great body of case law (much of which has been codified through the ages) that is always expanding the law. Law school professors are likely more liberal thinking. Liberal lawyers are social minded- think ACLU and other types of advocacy law. ( Full Answer )

What types of rulings are likely to be issued by a Supreme Court composed of four liberal justices two conservative justices and three moderate justices?
Moderately liberal to liberal A majority decision of the full Court requires a minimum of fivevotes. Although not holding a majority of seats on the bench, the moderatejustices would exercise considerable power as swing voters. Theirposition would tend to mitigate both extreme liberalism orexcess…ive conservatism, as one or more of their votes would berequired for a majority opinion supporting the liberal perspective.This would force the liberal justices to take a slightly moremoderate position, since they would find that compromise preferableto a conservative majority opinion. A conservative decision would require the agreement of all threemoderates, or a combination of moderates and liberals. On occasion,justices who are considered liberal will vote conservatively onselect issues, as Justice Stevens did in his dissent of Texas v.Johnson, (1989), a flag desecration case. However, theconservatives would have to make more concessions than the liberalsin order to achieve a majority, ensuring few decisions would betruly conservative. Most rulings would likely be center-left (moderately liberal toliberal) . It is possible the decisions would gradually become more liberal,because many US Supreme Court justices' views shift fromconservative or moderate to progressive over time.

Associate Justice William Cushing was a member of the US Supreme Court from 1790 - 1810, a time when terms like liberal, conservative and moderate weren't part of the political lexicon. Cushing supported abolition of slavery, which would certainly be have been considered a "liberal" position at t…he time. On the other hand, as a member of the Federalist party, Cushing favored a strong central government over states' rights, which was considered a more conservative position compared to the Democratic-Republicans' preference to allow states more autonomy. He was a strong supporter of the Constitution, but not of the Revolutionary War. Cushing could probably best be characterized as a political conservative with liberal views on select social issues.

It doesn't matter whether you are gay or not, in order be consider yourself liberal or conservative.

Conservatives can maitain a very conservative policy towards politics or economics, and find less objections to supporting gay marriage or other similar issues. ( Full Answer )
Fox News is run by Republicans/Conservatives, and is well-known as the unofficial media arm of the Republican party. However, it should be said that its newscasts, featuring such anchors as Shep Smith and Bret Baier, are widely praised for being fair to the facts. But the Fox commentators are in fac…t mostly Republican partisans who promote conservative perspectives on the issues of the day. Another perspective: FOX News tends to point out short-comings in the liberal agenda more often than not; however this is because they believe liberals cause the most problems. They're not conservative, they just don't filter their stories or balance their attention like other news groups do and so the majority of the stories will naturally sound anti-liberal to the tender ear. Another perspective: FOX is owned by business mogul Rupert Murdoch, who uses the station to promote a conservative Republican agenda. Contrary to popular belief, FOX does not offer a balanced perspective -- their views are extremely anti-liberal. The broadcaster has been taken to court because they provide false and twisted information, but the courts upheld their right to distort the truth under the First Amendment. ( Full Answer )

Mitt Romney is a moderate conservative. He has conservative views but is willing to listen to the people and compromise to find a solution that most people can be happy with. . It depends on when you ask and who asks him. He is whatever he thinks the people that he is with at the moment want him t…o be. He is the Tea Party's rigid conservative. He is the moderates' moderate. He is the liberals' liberal (in the past he supported right to choose and same-sex marriage, for example, when Governor of the more liberal state of MA.) That is why he seems to flip flop on issues, he says what he thinks he needs to say and avoids saying what he truly believes (if he has formed an opinion). On many issues, his opinion changes 180 degrees from what it just was. Right now, with the ultra conservative Koch Brothers and others like them who are funding his Presidential campaign, he is what they want him to be and that is as far right as you can get.

Actually, it is neither. In fact, the answer to this question depends on when you are watching. While its detractors (those who dislike it) want to say it is totally liberal, that is not accurate. MSNBC is actually two stations-- during the day, it is quite different from how it is during the evenin…g. MSNBC's "dayside" programming tends to be neutral and news-oriented, with little commentary. The network relies on the reporting staff of its parent, NBC, and focuses mainly on the big news stories. Its guest "experts" are evenly divided between liberals and conservatives, and its program hosts are either neutral or moderate conservatives. And MSNBC's highly-rated morning show, "Morning Joe" is hosted by a former Republican member of congress, Joe Scarborough. But at night, from Monday through Friday, and on weekend mornings, MSNBC is definitely liberal/progressive, and tries to be the liberal answer to the Republican/conservative FoxNews. At night, MSNBC has political commentators (currently, these are Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O'Donnell). This evening format, which was first advanced by Keith Olbermann (who is no longer on MSNBC), has proven very successful for the network. While it does not get the ratings of FoxNews, it has carved out a very successful niche for liberals and moderates who want to hear commentators expressing those perspectives. ( Full Answer )
