Why is there no one clear definition for a political conservative?

Because 'conservative' and liberal' have no fixed content in politics. Conservative politicians in for instance Scandinavia and The Netherlands would mostly be considered liberal, if not 'socialist' in the eyes of US politicians. And what with the whole political spectrum in the USA being much more to the right than that of many other Western countries, many US conservative politicians would find it hard if not impossible to find a local 'conservative' Party where they would feel at home - and US liberals would be considered to hold slightly right-wing conservative political views in those countries.

Congress would not follow Lincoln's "Louisiana plan" and in December, 1864 refused to acknowledge the Congressional delegations from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
