    Conservatives nowadays express liberal values- protect personal liberties, less government, limit the powers of the state, but when the rubber meets the road they come out for stronger government, more police powers, limits to personal liberties. The same sex marriage controversy is just one example. It's not enough for conservatives that their church won't allow it, they want the government to not allow it too.
    Here's a secret that conservatives don't get- laws don't prevent anything.

    sorry wrong..... it is classical liberals who are for limited government, less government, how can less government be the social welfare state?

    liberals do not respect right to property or association....they are for a collective society........not individualism.


    Classical liberalism is a political philosophy and ideology belonging to liberalism in which primary emphasis is placed on securing the freedom of the individual by limiting the power of the government. The philosophy emerged as a response to the Industrial Revolution and urbanization in the 19th century in Europe and the United States.[1] It advocates civil liberties with a limited government under the rule of law, private property rights, and belief in laissez-faire economic liberalism.[2][3][4] Classical liberalism is built on ideas that had already arisen by the end of the 18th century, including ideas of Adam Smith, John Locke, Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo. Its greatest expression as a political (as well as economic) philosophy in the 19th century was in the works of John Stuart Mill. It drew on a psychological understanding of individual liberty, natural law, utilitarianism, and a belief in progress.[5]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_liberalism

    Classical liberalism is a philosophy committed to the ideal of limited government and liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and free markets.[1]

    Classical liberalism developed in the nineteenth century in Western Europe, and the Americas. Although classical liberalism built on ideas that had already developed by the end of the eighteenth century, it advocated a specific kind of society, government and public policy required as a result of the Industrial Revolution and urbanization.[2] Notable individuals who have contributed to classical liberalism include Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo.[3] It drew on the economics of Adam Smith, a psychological understanding of individual liberty, natural law and utilitarianism, and a belief in progress. Classical liberals established political parties that were called "liberal", although in the United States classical liberalism came to dominate both existing major political parties.[1] There was a revival of interest in classical liberalism in the twentieth century led by Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman.[4]

    In the late 19th century, classical liberalism developed into neo-classical liberalism, which argued for government to be as small as possible in order to allow the exercise of individual freedom. In its most extreme form, it advocated Social Darwinism. Libertarianism is a modern form of neo-classical liberalism.[5]

    The term classical liberalism was applied in retrospect to distinguish earlier nineteenth-century liberalism from the newer social liberalism.[6] The phrase classical liberalism is also sometimes used to refer to all forms of liberalism before the twentieth century, and some conservatives and libertarians use the term classical liberalism to describe their belief in the primacy of economic freedom and minimal government. It is not always clear which meaning is intended.[7][8][9]

    I've been down this road too many times in the past year. I know who is and who isn't a liberal and I don't need that 'classical liberal' crap to point me in the right direction. Liberal means what it always has- so does conservative. Conservatives in the US suddenly realized that the "Founding Fathers' they revere so much were liberals so they had to invent a way they could adjust the definitions. Doesn't matter though, conservatives will always show their stripes when it comes to more laws, less freedom, stronger government. All they need is a Bible in one hand and a Koran in the other and a conservative will use them both to pass laws that could have any American arrested.

    my post has nothing to do with conservatives.....why go there?

    but if you are for what you stated, you are not liberal but a Libertarian.

    if you watched the video, ...liberals are against most of the things the professor states are classical liberalism

    Judge orders ‘gay’ agenda taught to Christian children


    A federal judge in Massachusetts has ordered the “gay” agenda taught to Christians who attend a public school in Massachusetts, finding that they need the teachings to be “engaged and productive citizens.”

    U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf yesterday dismissed a civil rights lawsuit brought by David Parker, ordering that it is reasonable, indeed there is an obligation, for public schools to teach young children to accept and endorse homosexuality.

    The guest speaker will be Judge Wolf's former law clerk, Roberta Kaplan (Cosmopolitan Feature on Roberta Kaplan), Harvard '88, who recently successfully argued in the Supreme Court that the Defense of Marriage Act ("DOMA") is unconstitutional. In addition to discussion of the role of the courts concerning same-sex marriage, the session will draw on Judge Wolf's decisions finding that: the private organizers of Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade had a First Amendment right to exclude a gay, lesbian, and bisexual group (case summary); religiously motivated parents did not have the right to exempt their children in elementary school from education about homosexuality and same-sex marriage (case summary); and ordering the Massachusetts Department of Corrections to provide sex reassignment surgery to a transsexual prisoner (case summary).

    Bigotry? Depends. Does someone want a law against SSM because it's against their religion, or because they don't like gays. If they're obeying their religion they're misguided but if they just don't like gays, they're bigoted.
    That's backward.

    No law is (or at least should be) needed to outlaw “same sex marriage”. Marriage has always been understood as being between a man and a woman, and until very recently, the very idea of defining marriage as anything else was correctly and universally recognized as entirely absurd at best.

    With the de-facto premise being that marriage is only between a man and a woman, it takes a radical and irrational act of law to seek to define it otherwise, and to force legal recognition of this ridiculous redefinition of marriage.

    It is not those of us who support marriage trying to outlaw “same sex marriage, but a tiny minority of immoral freaks who are trying to force a blatantly immoral redefinition of it on a society that, for the most part, wants no part of this redefinition.

    It is not the moral trying to force our morality on the immoral; it is the immoral trying to force their immorality on the moral.
