Is the Liberal vs. Conservative debate a battle between two fundamentally different groups, or is this an example of "divide and conquer"?

What would be a better way to organize our political ideologies and facilitate a constructive discourse? Go!

about the same as my thoughts on the ideologies of dumbness.
I agree that they are a bit off the trail, but spending in the US is out of control. Are we the people eternally in debt to our country? Nothing has changed in the banking community! :(

I love people that blame everything on obama and never give any blame to bush. It's amazing.
How about the Coffee Party? http://coffeepartyusa.com/
The average liberal and conservative have two completely different ideologies, it's the politicians that are all the same. Lucky for us, we have a two party system so we never get a real choice being two candidates, just two different names. They will stand at their podiums all day and say what they think will get them elected, but when it comes to their actions, they will always do the exact same thing.
I seem to recall George Wallace making this very point.
if you pick a side, your always going to be a little wrong.

I'm an unaffiliated registered voter and I use logic and common sense when it comes to the issues. That's what is needed.
Different sides of the same coin.

Conservatives want government to control what morals to live by and what values to hold.
Liberals want government to control what money you earn and how you use it.

Neither side is going to leave you the hell alone. I'm all for Libertarianism. "Live and Let Live."
