The definition of a Liberal should answer the original question.
There is no end game its a constant process of reform and progress for Liberals as opposed to conservatives who are reluctant to accept changes and new ideas, .

So you have the right but you sound like a snob.
You still haven't backed up your claim about economics and defense spending!

And when you apply that to the Constitution , that is where Liberalism runs a muck.

Manure is manure no matter how you frame it, such is the defeatism of liberalism. Conservatism is a very simple concept that calls for the basic concept of individualism as superior state of being.

Liberals try to make themselves sound complicated and erudite. They don't stand alone very well in forthright competition they seem more comfortable as a collective. Thanks God there are still enough individuals around that believe in the basic tenants of conservatism and the concept of personal sacrifice to achieve gain versus collective pandering.
Nothing complicated here. No need for a messiah or Fox News or anything else. Just generally good basic common sense that is actually uncommon for the pandering masses. Try it you'll like it. Break off a big ole chomp of self esteem and rise to the top of your individual game.

This is oversimplified garbage that stands in no real connection to conservatism and liberalism in our present political climate.

Here's a hint, when someone talks about "good basic common sense" they're probably someone who doesn't actually have any real thoughts beyond what is generally accepted as the status quo. Lots of things that used to be common sense are now considered outrageous and demonstrably false.

A good start would be to learn just why it is the whining NeoConfused hypocrites run screaming SOCIALISM! in terror at the mere mention of buying a Band-Aid for an American while patting themselves on the back while we build hospitals half way around the world at taxpayers' expense.

Let's hear the cockamamie logic behind this tragedy and maybe we can plan better

What new ideas? The liberal ideas are older than the conservative ideas.
As far as accepting changes goes, sometimes it's a good idea to not accept them.

What I don't understand is after the Great Depression, Roosevelt started the S.E.C. through the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which provided more regulation to prevent another depression. After this recession, caused by greed and fraud, people seem to be scared of regulation.
