How to determine if you are a liberal or a conservative
Be well and do good; or
Be good and do well.
This summarized the difference between sincere practicioners of American liberalism and American conservatism .
The serious conservatives want to (or claim to want to) follow a strong religious ethical code and to make lots of money. They want to be good, and they want to do well.
The serious liberals are into health and want to do good in the world. They want to be well, and they want to do good.
Which of the above two you pick, is a strong determinator of whether you are a liberal or a conservative.
