Political Pondering

Last week was Tennessee’s primary election for Governor. We also voted on some other races and positions. 
The political fervor and rhetoric reached a fever pitch last week with campaign commercials dominating television locally, California’s Prop 8 being overturned, and Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s being approved and sworn in.
Times like these always get me thinking. My most recent pondering: 
Why is it that “Liberals” advocate the increased role and presence of the government in every area of people’s lives except those having to do with personal (some may say, moral) matters? 
and …
“Conservatives” fight and reject the government’s oversight, regulation, and legislation of anything pertaining to their lives except when it comes to highly personal (some may say, moral) matters? 
Just wondering. 
What do you think?
