Conservatism is a tendency to resist rapid change and to support traditional norms, where "traditional norms" is meant to be the type of moral order and rules that existed in previous times (e.g. Europe and North America prior to the 1950's, stricter religious periods...).
In a conservative state, citizens are subject to state authority primarily in the area of social behavior aspects of their lives.

Economic Conservatism is the variation of Conservatism that emphasizes Independence over Conformance.
People in this category will tend to have stronger opinions about favoring individual initiatives (lower taxes, less corporate and environmental regulations, ...) than about enforcing the moral order (religious conformance, strict family values, lesser freedom of expression, stricter laws...).

Neoliberalism is a political philosophy and a political-economic movement beginning in the 1970s that de-emphasizes or rejects government intervention in the economy, focusing instead on achieving progress and even social justice by more free-market methods, especially an emphasis on economic growth, as measured by changes in real gross domestic product.

Conservative Neoliberalism is Neoliberalism associated with conforming moral values.

I guess that makes me a Libertarian who likes those small town Family Values. I'll agree with that as its pretty much how I would assess my own beliefs. Admittedly I generally don't care a great deal about social issues, but the whole SSM thing has been so entirely arrogant, dishonest, undemocratic and overall annoying that I've been rather outraged about it which has been reflected in my postings. But once the issue dies down for a bit...most assuredly dear readers Burkean angst will soon become Nozickian angst as the more fiscal errors of the state will draw my wrath.
