Re: Liberal vs. Conservative

It was Reagan who made "liberal" a dirty word. When he won, with the support of the Reagan Dems (Labor being a huge part of that), the liberals became "progressives."

My gripe is that the conservatives are really the liberals in the classic sense of the word.

I know I'm a wordie; I hate that words have become so, so malleable. This drives me nuts.

Now I have to go watch Ann on TV.
