Conservatives Explained

Conservatives tend to be people who prefer to see things the way they are, not the way we may want them to be. We don't believe we can control other people's lives nor want to, but do desire a tolerable social order where one is free to do what he/she wants, but within boundaries that don't infringe upon us.

 

We really don't like certain groups of people, not because of what they are born as, but what they do that turns us off, and that is not a crime. We don't advocate treating them unfairly, but we're not going to exalt them either just because. We're apt to call a spade a spade. We hate PC and word games, but don't go out of our way to offend others as long as they're leaving us alone. We believe in social roles for males and females as decided by Nature.

 

We believe in the freedom to succeed-or to fail. We'll gladly lend a helping hand, but we don't like carrying those perfectly capable of doing for themselves. It's not fair to us to be taken advantage of, and it's not right to take away another's freedom so we can feel better about ourselves.

 

Lastly, we believe in a moderately-sized government that can do the things it was designed to do by the Founding Fathers and as outlined in the Constitution. The last thing we want is an almighty central government running anybody's life and interfering with our ability to seek our fortunes.

So Doc, why are conservatives supporting foreign wars ? and why do conservatives often support the agenda of the Religious Right? since that is often a government intrusion in how people want to live their lives.  Not everyone is a Christian, and not even all Christians believe what the Religious Right believes.  
 
I'm afraid that what you say is not the full scope of what some conservatives believe.

Because domestic wars are too risky.
why do conservatives often support the agenda of the Religious Right?
Because that is us.
since that is often a government intrusion in how people want to live their lives.
No, it isn't.
Not everyone is a Christian, and not even all Christians believe what the Religious Right believes.  
The new church obligation law is ready for you.

That's true. We are far more complex than the left.

"Conservatives tend to be people who prefer to see things the way they are, not the way we may want them to be"
Not true when it comes to both climate change and equal rights.

That has not happened as yet. 
 
The left has learned how to buy votes with tax revenues so higher taxes leads to higher unemployment and hence more voters! The government cannot or will not address the drug problems, at the request of the left who want to feel good, so we need money to pretend we can cure druggies and reduce recidivism. The left wrecks the educational system [read propaganda mill here] so they want to teach arithmetic and basic reading in university or grad school.
 
We are not even 10% on our way to a " government that can do the things it was designed to do."

syck ryck the Barry Goldwater republican raves: The left has learned how to buy votes with tax revenues so higher taxes leads to higher unemployment and hence more voters!-Hmmm. Really?  You got proof, of course, not just your fantasy rightist ravings?  Sound like what Rs do, buy votes with donor class tax cuts...
