Akron, read the definition again: a : disposition in politics to preserve what is established b : a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change 3. : the tendency to prefer an existing or traditional situation to change

How can conservatives fight to preserve institutions and social stability be smaller government at the same time. If they are free market institutions wouldn't they reserve themselves?

Zing, are you saying that the Annheiser- Busch family is conservative? I was asking for contributions that conservatISM has made. Not just individuals. Rockefeller is a great example of an absolute tyrant in his heyday who created A LOT of beauty and good in his will. Do these ends justify his means?

You bring up some interesting points. Do you feel that Soviet communism would have imploded anyway? Where would have be now without our interference? As far as GNP, Chinese communism seems to be doing better than us at the moment. And according to the dictionary, REAL liberals would have defended our rights to keep and bear arms, freedom of speech and religion. It's no secret that I feel the Media has an agenda to smear liberalism's good name; I think Democrats that are trying to take away those rights feel they are "preserving the social order", a conservative value. What say you?

lets start with the defeat of the soviet union during the cold war. that's the first thing that comes to mind.

Preservation of the united states constitution. Ranging from free speech to freedom to own firearms, which liberals want to take away with the fairness doctrine and outlawing the private ownership of firearms.

Protecting americans from jihadists that would cut off your head if you don't convert to islam.

there's 3. want me to keep going?

I've been accused of being a "liberal" in these forums a lot, with a perjoritive tone that implies the person on the other side of said supposed insult is a conservative. Most people seem to wear the badge of conservative with a lot of pride. Ass the words tend to get thrown about a lot in the "Liberal Media" (Oh, the irony!) I thought it would be interesting to compare and contrast these view points. Merriam- Webster:

Main Entry: con·ser·va·tism Pronunciation: k&n-'s&r-v&-"ti-z&m Function: noun 1. capitalized a : the principles and policies of a Conservative party b : the Conservative party 2. a : disposition in politics to preserve what is established b : a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change 3. : the tendency to prefer an existing or traditional situation to change

Main Entry: lib·er·al·ism Pronunciation: 'li-b(&-)r&-"li-z&m Function: noun 1. : the quality or state of being liberal 2. a often capitalized : a movement in modern Protestantism emphasizing intellectual liberty and the spiritual and ethical content of Christianity b : a theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standard c : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties d capitalized : the principles and policies of a Liberal party

I suppose I am a liberal. Fine. Ended slavery, the 40 hour work week, rights for women, the weekend; I could go on. I believe in all of these things. Now, here's my challenge:

Without retreating to their usual vitriolic "liberal" bashing, I'd like these proud conservatives to come up with some concrete examples of conservative contributions to society.
