Here is what Ms Google found. con·serv·a·tive /k?n's?rv?div/ adjective 1. holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion. synonyms: traditionalist, traditional, conventional, orthodox, stable, old-fashioned, dyed-in-the-wool, unchanging, hidebound; More noun 1. a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics. synonyms: right-winger, reactionary, rightist, diehard; More I'll go one step further.
