Conservatives and Liberals, of course. I recall reading somewhere, perhaps even in this forum, a comment to the effect that "A conservative asks 'why' and a liberal asks 'why not' ". I'll tell you "why not". Ever hear the old saw "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?" That, to me, is the difference twixt us and them. Generally speaking, liberals can't leave well enough alone. Now, before anyone starts throwing out ridiculous comparisons about how slavery would still be around if it wasn't for liberals, let me point out that I'm not talking about the "big issues". I'm talking about the little, day to day things. Things like the education system. It wasn't broken, but the liberals decided to fix it. Now, Johnny can't even spell "New Math", let alone do any of it! Things like the welfare system. There was a time it genuinely helped those who genuinely needed some temporary assistance. Now it's little more than a wealth-transference system. Things like the prison system. Seen any good, old-fashioned chain gangs, lately? 'Course not! That would "infringe upon the rights of the incarcerated citizens". BAH! There is a world of difference between fighting for genuine, needed reforms, such as civil rights legislation, versus fighting for change <u>just for the sake of change</u>. "Why not?" Because you're screwing things up that worked just fine, that's why not!
