Another difference between Conservatives and Liberals is that Liberals want to outsource their compassion. They feel for everyone, and they want all of us to pay for their compassion in the form of higher taxes, and, naturally, a new government program. They hire people to do their good works, and feel good about themselves for being willing to pay for it (with our money, of course). Conservatives do the work themselves: volunteer, show up, instead of just writing a check.
