    I don't know what planet some of you are from, though

    Some of these responses make no sense and I don't see - at all - how they're connected to Conservative as a political ideology . . . I think some people seem a bit brainwashed by paranoid individuals in the media or something rather than level-headed and thinking adults.

    Nah, your post was fine. Appears we just have different opinions.

    Saving or holding onto or keeping smaller... especially tradition and government... it is an attitude or mindset.

    CONSERVATIVE - CONTROL, NOT LEAD

    LIBERAL - CONTROL, NOT LEAD

    As the old saying goes, "If the right one don't get ya, then the left one will!"

    We've lost Representative government in the US. It's dead, gone, and won't return...if it truly ever existed.

    Can you have conservatism without hierarchy?

    I think most people are elitists and populists at the same time. It just depends on what they are elitist and populist about and how they are.

    When I hear conservative, I think of a person who wants small government, free markets, and believes highly in the second amendment. And guess what, all of those are good things.

    I'd like to change my answer.

    I think of bls.gov.
