Difference of Left-Liberal and Right-Conservative

What Left-Liberal-Democrat (DNC) vs. Right-Conservative-Republican (RNC) believe and stand for

Conservative activist Charlie Kirk said, “The biggest difference between a Conservative and a Liberal is a Conservative produces more than they complain, and a Liberal complains more than they produce.

On the opposite spectrum are the Liberals, who are mostly educated women, and anti-capitalists, who push for diversity and equality. They frown at the “backward ideas” of conservatives such as Kirk.

The “Progressive Left” is very liberal, highly educated, and majority White. They support greatly expanding the scope of government and raising taxes on the wealthy and large businesses.

However, there are nuances, such as conservatives being more religious and traditionalists while more Liberals are atheists, pro-abortion, and advocate LGBTQI rights.

Liberal Democrats: Strong support for equality, group priority, permissiveness, collectivism, and big government.

Demographics: Liberals are mostly younger people, women, and academe, mostly in big cities. [1,2]

Conservative Republicans: Strong support for religious morals, traditional values, individualism, and small government.

Demographics: Conservatives usually have Judeo-Christian roots, primarily men and older people from rural, suburban areas. [3,4]

7-Most contentious policies between Right-Conservative and Left-Liberals

1. Big vs. Small Government

Conservatives favor smaller governments, advocating for limited intervention and lower taxes overall, which is the reason they are also capitalists who push for free trade that, in turn, alleviates poverty.

“Tax the rich”

Liberals, on the other hand, support a larger government role. They see the federal government as responsible for reducing economic disparities by providing universal health care plans, mass housing, and free education at the expense of the rich taxpayers.

The average American federal tax rate is 10% to 22%, while top earners range from 35% to 37%.

In 2021, the top 1 percent of earners (with incomes over $548,336) paid nearly 42 percent of all income taxes in the United States. [NTUF]

2. Socialism vs. Capitalism

Prairie Fire said, “Progressives (leftists) are burning cities (by endorsing BLM riots) and looting small businesses as part of their attack on capitalism.”

On the other hand, “capitalism is an anti-poverty program,” said the Democrat-led American experiment. Prager U’s video below explains why capitalism is pro-poor and better for the world.

3. Same-sex marriage vs. Traditional marriage

Most conservative Republicans support LGBTQ rights but are anti-gay marriage. It took nearly 226 years for the Supreme Course, established in 1789, to favor same-sex marriage.

In 2020, a new poll showed that most Republicans support same-sex marriage for the first time. In the same year, church attendance declined to a record number for the first time— while Pope Francis was the first vicar of Christ” to support gay marriage.

4. Abortion is Health Care vs. Pro-Life

Most Conservatives believe a fetus is human. It has certain inalienable rights, such as the right to live. Therefore, a mother has no right to abort it. [God in U.S. Constitution]

In stark contrast, the Liberal Left looks at a fetus as a “blob of tissue.” The choice of life belongs to the mother alone. Hence, it’s women’s health rights.

Former Democrat President Obama stated that women should have ‘Dignity And Freedom’ to get abortions.

In 2021, Democrats passed a bill to fund elective abortions not just locally but for other countries using American taxes. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Roman Catholic, defended the Democrats’ stand on abortion.

She said, “It’s none of our business how other people choose the size and timing of their families.” However, Conservatives consider abortion murder. “Abortion is a racist Democrat linguistic trick. It’s murder, not a choice,” tweeted Blexit founder Candice Owens.

In 2022, Democrat House Speaker House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that private companies should provide travel expenses for their employees to have an abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned and they are located in a state that bans the procedure.

5. Atheism and Religious tolerance

In 2014, Pew Research showed that 89% of liberal atheists lean toward Democrats. Although they shout for tolerance, some liberals want to remove Christian prayers and welcome Satanist invocation.

In 2019, a group of Democrats moved to omit “One Nation Under God” from congressional proceedings.

Some Republicans, on the other hand, want to continue and recognize the “faith tradition” found in the Declaration of Independence and state constitutions.


6. Voting Rights

In 2021, Democrat Speaker Pelosi endorsed the ‘Voting Rights Bill. Earlier, her constituent proposed lowering the voting age to minors as young as 16. Republicans opposed the proposal.

In 1969, Democrat John Davoren, former Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth, petitioned to abolish the Electoral College and maintain a direct popular vote.

In 2019, Democrat Senators petitioned to end it out of fear that a Republican nominee may win again by electoral vote.

President Trump ran for re-election in 2020. As a Republican, he won the 2016 election despite losing the popular vote to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

George W. Bush also won the presidency in 2000 after losing the popular vote to Democratic nominee Al Gore.

7. Border wall: To build or not to build

The partisan divide on whether to shut down or continue building the border wall, particularly between the United States and Mexico, was most tumultuous during the term of President Trump. Democrats refused to support expanding the border.

When President Biden took office, the border wall issue subsided. Instead, Biden welcomed new illegal immigrants. As a result, border crossings rose to millions.

In 2021, as one of Biden’s major accomplishments, he proposed to give around $450,000 per person in compensation for “separated families” that the Trump administration severed.

However, Republican Senators blocked the settlement payment.

The first political parties of the USA

The political parties of America formed on the issue of power and the size of the federal government. They were known as “Federalists and Anti-Federalists.” [The Americans, Littell, p186]

  • Federalist – Big government; open interpretation of the constitution. Similar to Democrats today.
  • Anti-Federalist – Small government; strict interpretation of the constitution. Similar to Republicans today.

Kansas-Nebraska Act: A defining moment for the new Republican and Democrat parties

1820, the Missouri Compromise prohibited slavery in states above the Missouri line. However, its repeal divided the territory of Kansas-Nebraska in 1854. The act split politicians from the Democrats and Whig parties—paving the way for a new Republican party.

  • Anti-slaves – Antecedent of today’s Republican party.
  • Pro-slaves – Antecedent of today’s Democrat party.

Slavery continues to haunt American politics

In 2020, the riots and looting dominated by BLM were rooted in slavery. The insatiable thirst to compensate for Black atrocities appears to have led the Marxist organization to claim “Its reparation.” Today, both parties support Black rights and the Equality Act.

The first African-American members of Congress were “23 Black Republicans.” By the late 1960s, the National Democratic Party abandoned its former support for “legal segregation.”

The Kansas-Nebraska Act divided political parties: In a heated debate, pro-slave Democrat Congressman Brooks beat into a coma antislavery Senator Sumner with his cane in the Senate in 1856. Later, Sumner affirmed the national government is the custodian of freedom for everyone.

Who are Republicans and Democrats today?

The recent pandemic and BLM riots revealed political ideologies. Vegans, animal rights activists, neo-feminists, LGBTQ, trans people, and atheists are mostly Liberal Democrats who supported President Joe Biden.

Republicans are usually religious conservatives who support President Trump. Witches cast “mass spells” so he wouldn’t win.

Recently, many Republicans were labeled “white supremacists,” blamed on leftist media propaganda. The attack on Conservatives was evident among Trump supporters. Hence, the phenomenon of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Today, America’s two-party system is no longer defined by who’s anti or pro-slavery but by the moral values they hold for the most part.



  1. The difference between right and left is clear. Democrats have always been outspoken. What scares me really are Filipinos who are turning leftists, liberals… they’ve forgotten our traditions, etc. It’s just sad because America has changed a lot. These filams parents don’t think its important to be catholic, they make fun at old religious people, but look at what’s happening here.
