English isn't my native language but I'm confused about this I argued with an American Conservative about 'change' She said Conservatism has never been against change As of poitics Are Conservatives against change?

Yes, it can be summed up as that. The word "conservative" comes from the Latin verb "conservare", meaning "to keep" or "to preserve". Thus, conservatives want to preserve things and keep everything the way it has always been (which is of course silly because there's no such thing as "has always been", things are in a constant flux).1
