    I think that should be up to those who answer. I am neither defining this criteria nor the one used when I see the complaints about the current crop of candidates. I am only reporting what behaviors I see.

    Actually, I'm coming to realize that most Republican candidates may not be conservative enough, but they're mostly too damn neoconservative.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You believe they should do all these things. Why do you want others to pay for them?

    There are two candidates who are conservative enough to me -- Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum. Rick Perry may sound conservative, but his crony-capitalism with Merke ticks me off.

    Right now i am seeing accusations of liberalism slung at all of them.
    I wouldn't say they're liberal, but they aren't conservative, either. Not what conservative used to mean, anyway.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    What positions do they have that are not conservative to your mind, that are key to being conservative?
