The lines would simply shift. The new conservative would be the moderate of today. The differences will exist regardless of how big the difference.

Not really. I don't support all liberal policies.

I am a classic liberal (what they now call "libertarian") so I can technically vote on this liberals-only poll.

TMI, At least you admit Libertarians are liberals.

Really I am a classic conservative.

What are liberals then?

@Haroush I admit the philosophy of libertarians was called "liberal" in the 19th century. Those called "liberal" today are definitely not libertarians, they are on the left side of the spectrum. Conservative and libertarian are on the right side.

@Taj Modern liberals subscribe to a slightly diluted version of socialism.

SPECTRUM: Communism - Socialism - Liberalism (modern) - Conservative - Libertarian

But there is a big difference. Also, you do know what a classic conservative is, right?
