Are you a conservative or a liberal?
John O, at Brain Droppings, has put together a really good summary of the differences between liberals and conservatives, quoting at length from Karl Rove's much maligned and misquoted speech about those differences, and then using Rove's words as a jumping off spot for further analysis and comment. I'd say it's a definite must-read if you want better insight into how your beliefs play into your political identity. Reading it, I am once against surprised that I managed to live so many years identifying myself as a liberal, since its clear that my values, for decades, have been conservative. It's sad that it took 9/11 to help me properly align my belief systems and my politics.
