If conservatives stand for order, liberals stand for chaos, are liberal ideals good for the short term but conservative values for long term?

Liberals pushing for necessary change, diversity and evolution, but conservatives striving for stability, natural law and preserving a balanced society?

    Conservatives tend to want things to remain as they are, because they like it the way it is. Liberals would tend to see the people who don't like things the way they are, and try to make things more likeable for them.

    Liberals seek to improve society and the lot of all the people in it. Conservatives focus on helping the rich elite maintain their position. For example, American conservatives oppose minimum-wage increases.

    Yes, except for that part about liberal ideals being good for anything.  Liberals can't define "change" that doesn't hurt America.  And what good does promoting diversity by accepting a lower standard for some do?  It cheapens their efforts.

    If anything related to your premise, conservatives pronounce the function of government to be "Law and Order" while liberals pronounce the function of government to be "To Protect and To Serve." 

    People who lean to the Right believe that the people are 'bad' whenever given the opportunity, and destined to get worse, so you have to control them. 

    People who lean to the Left believe that the people are 'good' whenever given the opportunity, and destined to get better, so you have to build a society that provides opportunity.

    Liberalism is a decadent luxury which only works if an economy has been made to thrive by conservatives

    Many Conservatives are going against basic human nature and making human rights illegal.  To live within a tolerant society, we have to find a balance of equality for all, rather than oppression, which is what many Conservative minded people seem to want, ie oppress anyone that opposes them ie Trump.

    Liberals stand for the good of mankind. Conservatives stand for the rich to remain rich and the poor to be kept poor. If speaking out against that injustice is chaos, then bring on chaos.

    Were you sleeping the last 4 years? Conservatives (also called the GOP) "grab onto power".   It is the Democrats that have had successive 2 term presidents in a row.  They are the ones that rebuild the country after 1 term of Conservative DESTRUCTION.  Read your history.

    No, liberals are good for the short term and the long term.  Preserving something that fails just means that it fails for longer.
