liberal ~ open to  new ideas and concepts
conservative ~ cautious; moderate or reserved

It is liberal thinking that made America and conservative thinking that kept it going. Have we not perverted our views on what liberal thinking and conservative thinking are? Hasn’t every great thinker had a mixture of both tradition and innovation? That’s why they were such great thinkers. And yet instead of agreeing that both kinds of thoughts are needed to keep this enlightened country going, we set up a witch hunt and argue and collapse.
