    What do you think?
    Stereotype much?

    how about both

    my wife is over 50, and married

    she is a social liberal, and a fiscal conservative

    she voted for some dems, some pubs, and a few others in the last election

    putting her into a box just isnt going to happen........

    Well, the question was are women liberal or conservative. I don't have to point out how foolish that question is.

    The OP made a pretty clear distinction.

    This same rejection of commonly accepted limitations on humanity by the founding fathers are in the same spirit as the rejection of limitations on humanity by liberals today.



    I don't particularly disagree with your arguments, but would argue that the European views of the moral issues are more individualistic. Viewing extramarital affairs as acceptable is very individualistic.
    You have a warped view of the Europeans... They have their own versions of conservatives. They have more racism, which is kept more in the closet because their countries are much more homogeneous. Some have more nationalism and cultural fascism. They have more than a few non-liberal problems. Some are much more misogynistic in their own way, there is the political elite perception of the Europeans, then there is the cultural reality of it's people.

    What did Putin say about the transvestite Russian that married a lesbian Russian in Russia the other week? That they should either be put in a mental asylum or immigrate to the liberal United States of America. Americans are liberals. Your constitution is liberal. You are all liberals.

    edit- Non-liberals like me and Putin believe that Freedom belongs to the State. Not to the individual.
    Classical liberalism is all but dead to the left of modern America so although I understand where you're going I wouldn't really agree with it.

    Conservatism is meh classical liberalism, kind of close but they stray.

    The true evolution of classical liberalism comes in the form of libertarianism, in fact, libertarians are described as neo classical liberals, they just hate being called liberals (probably because of the modern social "liberals").

    I have a warped view on many things.

    I'm not claiming that Europe or Europeans are faultless creations across the board, we are discussing humans here, after all, but they are socially more progressive in a number of ways than their American and international counterparts.
