These terms are thrown around adnauseum and people have incredibly hardened views about the terms and the people they see in those terms. So, what the heck do they mean? They seem so fuzzy to me as essentially useless labels but I guess I just don't know or understand their definitions.
I usually avoid using the terms because I tend to see people's beliefs laying on multiple intersecting spectrums (and some non-intersecting spectrums too) instructing sod trims).
So, what the hell is a liberal, a conservative...?
