A conservitive is right of center when you look at politics. A conservitive is historicaly someone who is for smaller goverment and lower taxes(not just for the rich) and although they are more agresive they are normally more likable(compared to liberals) because most of them, like Ronald Reagan hated the goverment as much as you or I.

The veiw of the goverment can be summed up like so; to the far left theres dictatorship, then communism, then socalism, then liberalism.
At the center theres moderates.
To the far right theres anarchy and then converitives.
In my opinion it would not work with someone from either side as President, you need a moder as President or he hopefully sometime soon that will be said like he/she will run everything on there principals and not on what will make the country prosper.
Dictator-Saddam of Iraq
Communist-Joeseph Stalin of old Russia
Socalist-Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain
Liberal-Ted Kennedy of U.S.A
Moderate-Bill O'Reilly of Foxnews
Conservitive-Ronald Reagan of U.S.A
Anarchey-Got nothing.

some one who stays trapped in traditional values. a politician who beileves in the idea that goverment should stay out of peoples lives and let the "invisble hand" control the market.Most conservitives arent true to their roots though these days they often want to make racial policys and try and stop civil right movements when they shouldve just listen to Adam smith the founder of their idealogy and stay out of those things unless they are trying to help the civil right movement. ironiclay although theyve been racsists since the 60,s they were founded on a anti-slavery platform.Psycologists have determed people who think conservitiely arent that smart.
conservitive thinker:some one who holds on to traditional values and is afraid to break away from his style of thinking.

conservitive president:Herbert Hoover cut taxes so much the country went into the the great depression well. He didnt know that something like that would happen.
conservitive president:Ronald reagan his supply-side economics or reaganomics sent the country into the biggest rescion since the depresion in the 30,s.
neo-conservitive president:George bush pretty musch the same as any other conservitive but beilieves in pre-emptive warfare sortive like reagan did but more drastic.

a pearson who is reseved and is a carefull thinker who is scared to take risks and usuly makes descions based on what they think keeps them safe. though people like this may be perceived to make smart descions and show good common sense they tend to be dumber then people who may have more radical thinking.in a political sense a conservitive is someone who either has raceist values or does not want to pay taxes.Republicans have historcly been racist(even though they were formed on anti-slavery) and againts the middle class and poor so hence the term "conservitive"or "conservitive values"has been used to describe the republican party or right wing.
conservitive values are large in the south where there is alot of racism and republicans.(when the civil rights movement became a success in the 60'alot of the south started to become republican since they wanted to hold on to there racial values)
