Political definitions

The great difference between liberals and conservatives in this age is that liberals consume facts and eat up information at a great rate in a search for truth -- sometimes finding some, and becoming ever more frustrated at how little other people care -- while conservatives are certain they already know everything worth knowing and will listen only to words that confirm that belief. Don't bother conservatives with the facts.

On the other hand, some people who think they're conservatives really are liberals, and liberals are today's true conservatives.

Right wingers are conservatives gone crazy, radicals with an extra measure of greed, an overweening disdain for everybody who is not themselves and a certainty that they have the right to tell everybody else in the world how to live and what to believe.

Right wingers control the government of what should now be called the Corporate States of America.
