Are you a conservative or liberal?

I'm liberal, no question about it. I think if we have the wealth and the ability to help those less fortunate, provide free health care, and make it so there isn't a single person in the country who is impoverished, I believe we should. The difference between me and the modern "liberal" is that I acknowledge that we are not in any position to do those things.
To put it simply. What is right and what we can realistically do aren't always the same thing. Free schooling? That'd be great. Allowing all people access to higher education is a supremely positive thing? But education in this country is already kind of trash AND it's expensive. Making it free would only cripple it further. So, yeah. Be idealistic when you have the means to be. When you don't, be realistic.
