Dennis Miller was dropping his name on his radio show the
other day.

Why is it we see so many former liberals become conservative but how many conservatives become liberals?

"...conservative is a liberal who's been mugged..."
"if not a liberal at 20 you have no heart; if not a
conservative at 40 you have no mind"

Though he did not say it explicitly, he made it clear that we are in a war for the soul of our nation. Lord help us!

Rather than viewing people as liberals and conservatives, I'd suggest a three-way division:

  1. Those who want others to take care of them.
  2. Those who want to take care of themselves (and control their own destiny).
  3. Those who want to control others.
Group #2 represents the conservatives. Groups #1 and #3 are "liberals", though for very different reasons. Applying the same label to those two groups merely creates confusion.

Put things in those terms and the nature of people's progression will become clear.
