    Yes, conservatives are evil. We get it.

    Conservatives were the ones opposing breaking away from Britain and starting our own country. Conservatives were the ones opposing the abolition of slavery. Conservatives were the ones opposing women's rights to vote. Conservatives were the ones opposing the civil rights movement. They haven't done anything significant to progress this country forward in a good way. Thank goodness they left the Democratic party and switched over to the Republicans in recent years.

It has also been shown that social dominance orientation is strongly associated with conservative political views.
    You might rethink your position if you read the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin (2010) study by Morgan, Mullen, and Skitka.
    It's an interesting study on liberals (situational attributions) and conservatives (dispositional attributions); the study concludes that both sides demonstrate both types of attributions.

    Any study that generalizes and pigeon-holes any group is suspect and needs further investigation; the 2010 study is more flexible, and more credible.

    now this demonstrates the stupidity of using terms outside a given era of history and trying to apply them to different eras

    conservative is irrelevant as a term unless you define the context. IN a socialist society, someone who pushes more socialism would be conservative. IN a monarchy, defenders of the crown are conservatives. In a society founded on freedom and liberty, the conservatives would be defending freedom and liberty from the creepy crud of collectivism.

    the people who rebeled against the Monarchy have far more in common with american conservatives than our current crop of liberals who are statist reactionary parasites.

    How can liberalism be associated with a fear of change? Liberals promote change. Haven't you seen the conservative bumper sticker "You can keep your change, I'll keep my guns, money and freedom"?

    exactly-american liberals are not liberals

    they are reactionary statist parasites who want more and more government

    liberals don't want change-they want to keep expanding the new deal
