Conservatives vs. Liberals

The difference between conservative and liberal messages is this - conservatives tell you that you're special and liberals tell you that you're not. As a corollary, conservatives tend to be culturally exclusionist - since we are special, all other cultures are necessarily worse and we won't partake of them. On the other hand, liberals tend to thrive on a diversity of cultures.

Needless to say, the conservative message is psychologically stronger - everyone likes to hear that they are special.
