CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS INVERTION DILEMA ON THEIR APPROACHIES ON FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC POLICY

By the basic ideological differences between liberals and conservatives are fairly clear to just about everyone.  Conservatives are known for advocating lower taxes, reduced government intervention, and strong national defense.  Liberals tend to seek higher taxes, more social programs, and cuts in defense spending.  Though these philosophies appear to be quite divergent from one another in terms of domestic agendas, when it comes to how they apply to a world a view things become a little more complicated.

Conservatives moral objection to expanding the welfare state is that it diminishes the recipients incentive to provide for themselves.  They also stress personal responsibility and the notion that it is wrong to take from those who have earned what they have to give to someone else.  Conservatives basically see that people’s fortunes as being controlled by their own hard work and character.

Liberals generally support expanded entitlement programs and increased federal regulation of industry.  They have historically identifies historical currents as determining people’s economic position, and that the government has a responsibility to provide for the poor.  They believe that the disparities in income are primarily caused by historical injustice, and that these disparities are a problem that needs to be corrected. 

But when it comes to foreign policy, the dialog reverses.  Modern conservatives have tended to emphasize America’s role in combatting evil throughout the world, based on the idea that America is a great and just nation. Here, conservatives emphasize the state’s responsibility to provide for the less fortunate, seeing them as needing American help to promote Democracy and liberty.  Also, conservatives see our nation’s strategic interests as being advanced by rooting out Islamic fascism wherever it exists.

Liberals, particularly the Obama camp, have suggested that American international military involvement in other nations struggles “undermines the people’s ability to achieve liberty on their own”.  this was Obama’s reasoning for not making a clearer and strong statement after the Iranian uprising against their corrupt regime.  On the issue of  extreme repression, they tend to say, “it’s not our problem” or “we need to mind our own business.”  Also, this is rooted in the notion that America does not have the right to see itself as an exceptional nation, and that we are not on the right side of history.

The camp or group of leaders who can take command of this conflicting issues in a unified dialog will dominate the conversation in the upcoming years.

The Greyfalcon sees a significant distinction in conservatives position on this.  The conservatives have answers for how to help the poor without government intervention.  Conservatives have actually done more for those in need though personal donation, faith-based charity, and volunteer foundations.  The Left has no such answer for how they can help those suffering under the tyranny of despots.
