We've perverted the definitions of "liberal" and "conservative" beyond all recognition.

Being in favor of liberty = liberal. That's what the word used to mean. We use it differently now, but this idea we have now that Republican = conservative and Democrat = liberal is mind-bogglingly stupid. There are lots of very, very stupid things that the Republican party stands for and many of them are not "conservative" things. No one can be opposed to gay marriage and still honestly claim to be a true conservative.
