Conservative and Liberal

Due to comments on my mailing list, I was moved to ask readers how THEY, as individuals or members of groups, defined the above terms.  After all, if one listens to radicals on either side, they define these terms in ways that no member of the target group would accept.  But does that mean those definitions are wrong?  Not sure.  At any rate, I wanted to invite readers here to present their own definitions.  It would be very, very useful for those on either side of the political divide to understand exactly what they are accused of being and believing, wouldn't it?
