The 3 Big Differences Between Conservatives and Progressives
Conservatives say people should have choices. Progressives say one political solution fits all.

What's the difference between a conservative and a progressive? Here are three examples.

No. 1: Conservatives and progressives have different views about individuals and communities.

Conservatives ask: "What can I do for myself, my family, my community, and my fellow citizens?"

Progressives ask: "What is unfair?" "What am I owed?" "What has offended me today?" "What must my country do for me?"

The traditional American ethic of achievement gives way to the progressive ethic of aggrievement. As opposed to a variety of individuals making up one American community, progressives seek to place individuals in a variety of competing communities. The first creates unity. The second, identity politics.

No 2.: Conservatives and progressives have different views about diversity and choice.

For progressives, different ethnicities and gender identities are welcomed but a variety of opinions and ideas are not. Just look at two areas of public life dominated by the left. On college campuses free speech is under attack. If you're a conservative working at a social media company or using one of their platforms to share your views, you may find your job eliminated or your account deleted. And when it comes to choice, progressives love the word, but they don't want it to apply to our decisions on education, health care, and even how and where we live out our religious faith.

Conservatives take a different approach.

Parents, not the zip code they live in, should choose the school that is best for their child. We all need health care, but we don't all need the same kind or same amount. And while people should be free to live as they choose, no one should be forced to endorse or celebrate those choices if it violates their religious beliefs.

Conservatives say people should have choices. Progressives say one political solution fits all.

No. 3: Conservatives and progressives have a different view of "We the People."

Progressives believe that the government must solve all their problems.

Conservatives believe that government is the problem.

That is exactly the truth. Look at all the dolts in government and it's easy to see why.

I as a conservative don't like something I don't buy it, eat it, don't watch it, and anyone else can do what they want to



A liberal doesn't like something, then no one can buy it, eat it, or watch it.

I have always loved the words in the Declaration of Independence that sound perfectly thought out to me: “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness”.

I always loved Ronald Reagan's explanation of this question

Conservatives think every day is the 4th of July

Progressives think every day is April 15th

And, by the way, if you refuse to pay, you’re a fascist.

Conservatives create value, Liberals restrict and redistribute the creation of value.

Conservatives recognize great traditions that work, Liberals emote: Wouldn't it be great if...

Conservatives hold to proven ideas and ideals, Liberals have no morals and try anything that is popular without considering the consequences.

Conservatives build independence, Liberals legislate dependence.

Conservatives agree on unalienable rights, Liberals want control.

(Don't look for it on the internet. I write my own thoughts.)

I agree on all counts EXCEPT for the misuse of the word "liberals". What you're describing are Leftists/Democrats/Socialists/Progressives. As a true, classical liberal, I object when people delude themselves today's leftists somehow represent "liberalism".

They don't.
