Conservatives vs Liberals As long as there have been politics in the United States there has been a productive tension between liberal views and conservative views These differences are most clearly demonstrated by the disparate views on subjects such as education taxes and public health care Liberals and conservatives have different views about the role of government While liberals currently represented by the Democratic Party and conservatives currently represented by the Republican Party both believe that education tax policy and public health are important issues for the United States they have different beliefs about the best approach for these policies Liberals tend towards policies that empower the central government through large all encompassing programs On the other hand conservatives generally prefer locally run programs that are not the same in all communities but may produce results more consistent with community preferences Currently no topic provides a better example of the difference between conservatives and liberals than education policy The liberal belief is that education policy is best when dictated from Washington DC with federal education subsidies contingent upon state and local government compliance to federal mandates Conservatives believe that federal money should not be based on specific agendas developed in Washington DC but instead should be granted to state and local governments in the form of grants These grants do not generally have strings attached and can be used for state and local education priorities Conservatives and Liberals also disagree about where education dollars should be spent The liberal view is that children should go to public schools regardless of quality they believe that public education efforts and money should be directed towards public schools Conversely conservatives believe that children in non-performing schools should have the option to go to private school at public expense Their view is that competition between public and private schools will improve both Nobody likes tax time Liberals and Conservatives both agree
