Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Now lets take a look at this no doubt Reagan had a crappy economy when he took office, but conservatives still deny the fact that he tripled the debt to get the U.S. out of it. Now Bush 1 was the best of the bunch and in all honesty wasnt that bad, Bush 2 do we really need to get into the corporate welfare he provided and the mountain of debt he added that caused a great deal of the problems. I think conservatives are a very funny bunch they only care about spending when the other guy is doing it not when the their guy is doing it. Our problems can be tracded way back to Reagan he wasnt innocent in this.
