The epithet conservative or liberal is used to describe political and economic views and affiliations. The meaning of "conservative" or "liberal" could be different in different contexts - social, economic and political. They also differ in usage in different countries and over time.

In terms of views on social issues, conservatives oppose gay marriage , abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Liberals on the other hand, are more left-leaning and generally supportive of the right of gay people to get married and women's right to choose to have an abortion, as ruled by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v Wade .

With regard to the right to bear arms, conservatives support this right as it applies to all US citizens, whereas liberals oppose civilian gun ownership - or at the very least, demand that restrictions be places such as background checks on people who want to buy guns , requiring guns to be registered etc.

To go with the archive of Liberal Democrat policy papers on this site, Jeremy Hargreaves  has very kindly agreed to share his guide to how Liberal Democrat policy is made. Here it is in full.

Official Liberal Democrat policy can be summarised very simply as policy proposals which have been approved by Liberal Democrat federal conference  (with a caveat about devolved policy, such as for Scotland and Wales, on which see below).

Any ten party members can propose items to conference, and every conference approves many policy motions proposed in this way. Some motions, particularly in major areas, come from the Federal Policy Committee (FPC) , which are also subject to a further earlier process of their own.

Under our new Plan to Build Your Future, we’ll make Tasmania an even better place to live, and put Tassie at the front of the pack.

“By definition,” Maurice Cranston says, “a liberal is a man who believes in liberty” (1967: 459). In two ways, liberals accord liberty primacy as a political value.

Hobbes generally is treated as one of the first and greatest social contract thinkers. Typically, Hobbes also is seen as an advocate of unlimited monarchy. On Hobbes’s theory, Leviathan’s authority is almost absolute along a particular dimension: namely, Leviathan is authorized to do whatever it takes to keep the peace. This special end justifies almost any means, including drastic limitations on liberty. Yet, note the limitations implicit in the end itself. Leviathan’s job is to keep the peace: not to do everything worth doing, but simply to secure the peace. Hobbes, the famed absolutist, in fact developed a model of government sharply limited in this most important way.

Paradigmatic liberals such as Locke not only advocate the Fundamental Liberal Principle, but also maintain that justified limitations on liberty are fairly modest. Only a limited government can be justified; indeed, the basic task of government is to protect the equal liberty of citizens. Thus John Rawls’s paradigmatically liberal first principle of justice: “Each person is to have an equal right to the most extensive system of equal basic liberty compatible with a similar system for all” (Rawls, 1999b: 220).
