    Conservative define: (Google)

    adjective

    1. Holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion

    noun

    1. A person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics


    Don't hate the messenger .. so far I think you're a respectable person

    The above is conservative defined ... perhaps you do not not see conservatism in this light?
    For my view of conservatism, please go to Philosophy Discussions and see my thread there on What is a Conservative.

    Does that line up with your actual actions in terms of what you argue for? Or is the definition I found more suitable?

    Getting back to the OP .. I am still wondering what people's answer's are to the following questions:

    1.) Do you believe our founding documents are sacrosanct? Yes or No?

    2.) Do you believe our founding documents are valid sources on which to base one's ethical argument? Yes or No?

    My answers are as follows:

    1.) No
    2.) No

    is that a surprise?

    I believe I am a follower of Russell Kirk's philosphy.
