Maintaining and advocating time worn political and economic methods and credos despite compelling evidence of their being retrograde, ineffective, or deleterious.
Someone politically conservative often evidences the following symptoms: Vague rants against socialism, without specificity. Reliance on supposed intentions of the "founding fathers." Promulgating contention based on political parties rather than public good-- us versus them mentality. Reflexively negative reaction to any thing or idea remotely new-- ergo, not a certainty, not proven-- maintaining a stultified political and economic culture.
