No, no, NO!!!! There are two definitions:
Conservative, n. 1.) Reactionary who wishes to repeal the Constitution in
favor of the Bible, (See Reagan, Fundie, Christian Reich) definition in
current use since c.1947. 2.) Person who believes that Government should
intrude as little as possible in matters of personal choice and in matters
of enterprise. (See Goldwater, Barry; Rand, Ayn; "libertarian;"
Laissez-Faire) Definition currently out of favor since the 1950s, and
almost entirely forgotten. However, this was the original meaning of the
term. Antonyms to former definition include "libertarian", secularist,
Humanist, Free-thinker, Anti-Statist, American. Antonyms to latter
definition include Statist, Collectivist, Blue-nose, Despot, Tyrant,
Fascist, Communist, etcaetera.
