    Not to be confused with Conlib.png Conservative Liberalism or Libcon.png Libertarian Conservatism.

    Liberal Conservatism, often shortened to LibCon is an economically centre-right to right, culturally moderate but generally right-leaning and usually centre to authoritarian-leaning on the lib-auth axis, ideology. Liberal conservatism incorporates the Clib.png Classical Liberal view of minimal government intervention in the economy, according to which individuals should be free to participate in the market and generate wealth without government interference. However, unlike most liberals, liberal conservatism emphasizes trying to conserve this worldview and views any attempts to challenge it as an existential threat. They are also unafraid to be called conservative, even if they're often more socially liberal on certain issues.


    Historically, conservatism in the 18th and 19th centuries comprised a set of principles based on concern for established tradition, respect for authority, and religious values. This form of traditionalist or classical conservatism is often considered to be exemplified by the writings of Joseph de Maistre in the post-Enlightenment age. Contemporaneous liberalism, now recalled as classical liberalism, advocated both political freedom for individuals and a free market in the economic sphere. Ideas of this sort were promulgated by John Locke, Montesquieu, Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill, who are respectively remembered as the fathers of liberalism, including economic liberalism, the separation of church and state, social liberalism and utilitarianism.

    According to scholar Andrew Vincent, the maxim of liberal conservatism is "economics is prior to politics". Others emphasize the openness of historical change and suspicion of tyrannical majorities behind the hailing of individual liberties and traditional virtues by authors such as Edmund Burke and Alexis de Tocqueville as the basis of current liberal conservatism which can be seen both in the works of Raymond Aron and Michael Oakeshott. However, there is general agreement that the original liberal conservatives were those who combined conservative social attitudes with an economically liberal outlook, adapting a previous aristocratic understanding of natural inequalities between men to the rule of meritocracy, without directly criticizing privileges of birth as long as individual liberties were guaranteed. Over time, the majority of conservatives in the Western world came to adopt free-market economic ideas as the Industrial Revolution progressed and the aristocracy lost its power, to the extent that such ideas are now generally considered as part of conservatism. Nonetheless, the term liberal is used in most countries to describe those with free-market economic views. This is the case in continental Europe, Australia, and Latin America.

    KernesGepa.png Kernesism

    KernesGepa.png Kernesism is the ideology of Gennadiy Kernes who was a mayor of Kharkiv from 2010 to 2020. It is Klep.png corruptionary doctrine and CronyCap.png cronyistic, like many other Partyofregions.png Party of Regions members. The party of Kernes was KernesBloc.png "Block of Kernes — Succesfull Kharkiv". Kharkivians think that he was a good mayor and is respected even after his death in December 2020 due to COVID complications. Howerer outside of Eastern Ukraine, he remains a controversial figure as he supported pro-Russian unrests following the Euromaidan.

    Romney.png Romneyism

    Romneyism is based on the political beliefs of Cball-Utah.png Utah Senator and 2012 RepubUS.png Republican Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. Romney describes himself as being a Modcon.png Moderate Republican. His first major position in politics was serving as Governor of Cball-Massachusetts.png Massachusetts, where he cut spending, increased fees, and closed corporate tax loopholes in order to bring about surpluses. Romney also signed into law the Massachusetts health care reform or "Romneycare" which aimed at providing health insurance to all Massachusetts residents and would ironically serve as a model for "Obamacare".

    On social issues, he is quite conservative. Although he was Pro-Choice1.png pro-choice as governor, he later became Antiabort.png pro-life in 2005 as he became Trad.png culturally right, opposing abortion in all cases except for rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. In addition to being pro-life, Romney also opposes Antiporn.png pornography and Gay.png LGBT+ rights, although, by 2022, he began to moderate his stance on the LGBT+ community, voting in favor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which requires all states and territories to recognize the validity of same-sex marriages and civil unions while also protecting Religious.png religious freedom.

    In 2012 Romney won the Republican nomination for President and faced incumbent President Obamium.png Barack Obama. Obama criticized Romney for calling Cball-Russia.png Russia the number one geopolitical foe to The United States and for his proposed Medicare reforms. Obama ended up defeating Romney and served another term as President.

    During the 2016 Presidential Election, Romney criticized Trumpism.png Donald Trump calling him a phony and a fraud. In response, Trump called Romney a "choke artist". In 2018 Romney was elected to the Senate representing Cball-Utah.png Utah, he became the most prominent Antitrump.png Anti-Trump Republican in the Senate voting to convict him in both his impeachment trials. Romney also marched alongside Blm.png Black Lives Matter protesters in 2020 and voted to confirm Libfem.png Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court in 2022.

    Cball-US.png Blue Dog Democratism Dem-BlueDog.png

    Blue Dog Democrats are Moder.png Moderate members of Demcr.png The Democratic Party who caucus in The Blue Dog Coalition in the US House of Representatives. The Blue Dog Coalition was founded by a group of conservative Democrats in 1995 in response to the defeats in the 1994 midterm elections. Many of the founding members of the Blue Dog Coalition were Southern conservatives who were still members of the Democratic Party. The caucus advocated for Fiscon.png Fiscal Conservatism, while being mostly moderate on social issues. They also advocated for bipartisan consensus with RepubUS.png Republicans and acted as a check on legislation that was considered too far left or right. Today the Blue Dog Coalition retains it's fiscal conservative views but is more aligned with the rest of The Democratic Party on social issues. The caucus is also a lot more diverse not only in terms of ethnicity but also in terms of what states it's members represent. Blue Dogs have changed from a coalition of "southern white men" to "a multi-regional, multicultural group". One notable former member of the Blue Dog Coalition would be Senator Sinema.png Kyrsten Sinema of Cball-Arizona.png Arizona.


    LibCon's personality is that of a nerdy politician that is fiercely scared to lose voters (aka kinda boring, but not too boring). He tries to compromise with both liberals and conservatives by adopting some of their policies. They don't always backfire, however, both of these groups still hate him. Basically the combined personalities of Cball-US.png George H.W. Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, Cball-UK.png David Cameron, Cball-Germany.png Angela Merkel, Cball-Netherlands.png Mark Rutte and of course, God Emperor Mitt Romney. He may also act like Hank Hill from King of the Hill.

    LibCon also really likes reading and money.

    Others define him as "fiscally conservative, socially liberal" but the term "liberal" has been erroneously associated with the left nowadays (especially in the US), so he tries to associate himself with Clib.png Classical Liberalism.
