    Then why is Gingrich whining about Romney's money?
    I have no idea why he's doing that. That's a really good point. He has made some statements that stink of socialism... or at least nutty leftism.

    IMO, Conservatives are "traditional" - for all the good and bad that this contains...
    IMO, conservatism means an un-willingness to think and reason, but to just refer to the "old scrap of paper", our Constitution.
    IMO, conservative means a narrow view, the wealthy (elitism).
    Conservatives are necessary to "brake" or retard the progress of the Liberals or Progressives..
    A man never knows...maybe our people are not ready for "Affordable Health Care", and a conservative repeal may well prevail..
    America the Beautiful
    ......but.....not
    America the Advanced

    The last 30 years of supply side economics and deregulation has been a class war that is killing the middle class and threatening senior's programs. When we fight back you say it is us waging the class war. Is the middle class no longer allowed to stand up for itself???

    the last 70 years of government handouts, progressive taxes which allow the middle class more government without paying for it has created an America that has millions of entitlement addicts and a raging deficit

    The middle class is getting more entitlements because 30 years of supply side economics has most of the wealth going to the top. 50% of the country average an annual income of $15,800 under supply side economics. Is that what you consider high on the hog???

    No surprise here. Don't most liberals think about stuffing their faces when confronted with moral values?

    Traditionalism, restrictive social values, non-secular.

    I do not perceive modern Conservatives as being about small government, fiscal restraint or constitutionalism. It's mainly conservative Libertarians and moderates who represent that now. Mainstream Conservativism is responsible for some of the most horrendous expansions of government, poor economic planning, and waste of money in our time.

    Not likely to buy into someone's bull****; puts thought into what they accept and what they reject.
