Liberals need government to be the Almighty force that controls everything.

I never thought of it that way, but you're right. Which makes more sense?

Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. Conservatives believe the role of government should be to provide people with the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

Liberals believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It's the duty of government to alleviate social ills and protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Liberals believe the role of government should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for government to solve problems. The only way to solve problems is to control the people who cause problems.
