Chattman91 saidDoesn't the phrase "traditional values" just drive you nuts??
Yes, because many things have been "traditional" in this country in the past: slavery, racial hatred, bigotry, among others. But that is the core definition of Conservatism: to hold on to the past, not embrace change, not accept the future. A world that is forever as it was, no matter how wrong it may have been.
Some RJ members here support Conservatism, because of one of its branches, Fiscal Conservatism. Except with Conservatives, when you buy into one part, you've bought the whole package. And as we can see with the laws passed by their recent legislative majorities given to them, their first priorities have been a Conservative social agenda, that target gays, not a fiscal agenda as they sold during the election.
Boys, yah been snookered!
