Party Ideology

Mark, Michael, and i went to Anzu again for the final installment of the presidential debates. The debate was typical. What followed was an interesting conversation on the drive home. One question i raised was, what is the fundamental difference between the parties. If you could describe a party in 2-3 words, what would they be?

I think we can all agree on liberal versus conservative. We can also agree on strong versus weak government.

In addition i say democrats strive for equality, and republicans strive for freedom.

What do you think?

I can't agree on liberal vs conservative

I really can't. Bush isn't a conservative, he's the closest thing to a tax and spender the republicans have. It's fascinating that the Republican party has him up front, because he's absolutely not conservative where it counts to run a government. He's an idealogue on the social side, which I suppose they like.

Nor do I think that Liberal is a fair label to the Democrats. A democratic congress and president made certain that we aren't, as a country, spending more than we bring in via taxes. That's a fiscally conservative postition.

Nothing sums them up simply to me, so I don't know what to say there.
