The basis of any productive discussion is a common understanding of the definitions of terms used. In redefining conservative as distinct from "right wing" I am making the same sort of distinction Alan and No Difference make between "liberal" and "progressive." The point is to highlight the desirable characteristics of the "right" and "left" points of view where we can find common ground and invite people from the extremes to join us.
The idea of full employment sounds good, but I know at least a couple of dozen people who could--but just won't--work. And that's not the government. That's them. If government is responsible for full employment opportunity, so too are the people responsible for taking that opportunity.
I get what you're saying. [Must be the moderate in me talking ] and despite what I think about my associates who sit around and watch Judge Joe all day, full employment (~95%) is definitely a worthy stance that JP should take--probably one of the key issues which will differentiate it from Dems & the GOP in 2014.
