Conservatives and Liberals and Parenting
We have had this discussion before but as I sat and reread the definition for the upteenth time , trying to grasp how two opposing beliefs can cause so much dissention and (hate even), it started reading like different views of parenting skills.
My view as a conservative is exactly how I raised my son
My son worked all through high school and college.
I never made a car payment, paid car Ins, or bought gas for his auto.
He believes, if you don't work, you don't eat.
My daughter was well on her way to the same goals.
I am sure there are conservatives' with children not worth
a nickle as far as being a contributing citizen but over all....
my conservative friends and family have raised
their children by the same guidelines as our political
values. If you don't work....you don't eat.
Do liberals raise their children as they view their beliefs
for others? If not, why not?
Do liberals expect their own kids to solve their
own problems or the govn solve them?
Do liberals raise their kids, if you don't work, you
I find this an interesting subject.
Does our political belief and view run parallel with
how we raise our children?
Conservatives and Liberals
Very briefly stated, here are the different beliefs of Conservatives and Liberals.
Conservatives ideals are based on the belief in the capability of others and the attendant accountability i.e. personal responsibility. The individual, not the government, is responsible for individual actions. All government should be limited and be representative of the people. They believe in free market economy, individual liberty, traditional values and morals, and a strong national military for defense. The role of the government is to protect the freedom of the people so that individuals can pursue their own goals and desires. The emphasis is on the state to solve its own problems and for the individual to solve his/her own problems.
Liberals believe in a strong government that acts to absolve others from accountability based on their belief that Americans generally incapable. Seeing people as incapable they feel compelled to protect promote equal opportunity for all people in the nation. It is the job of the government (state) to help solve social ills and to protect the civil liberties of all. Liberals have a strong belief in individual and human rights. The role of the government should be to protect and guarantee that no person is in need. Thus, liberals would accept governmental policies such as national medical insurance for all. Liberals emphasis the basic goodness of people and the need for government to help solve problems.
