    No, what is being called "conservative" in modern-day America has nothing to do with conservatism, they've simply adopted the label to mean something that has no bearing on what conservative used to mean. There is nothing in the modern Republican party that says personal responsibility, small government, fiscal responsibility, etc. That's what being a conservative is. The liberals-turned-Republicans just stuck a "neo" on it and pretend that they're actually conservatives.

    They're not.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

We realize that others are actually trying to tell us how to think and what we can believe after we've spent so many years going through tough times and many failures to learn where we stand. We don't want to spend that personal capital on what basically equates to growing up only to have some douche in a big building who's never met us think he can tell us he knows better for us that we do.
    I didn't have to wait. I somehow knew what you stated when I was nineteen, thirty-eight years ago.

    Re: Age vs Political Idilogy

    I started out life with liberal tendencies, most likely because of the era I became politically aware. I didn't vote for Reagan either time, but I did vote for Bush 41 two times. I had become more conservative after my kids were born and stuck with that, sadly, through several elections until I realized that wasn't who I truly was. The party of Poppy Bush was much more compassionate and reasonable, not demanding purity. Gay rights, women's rights, the social safety net are important to me, so I embraced liberalism again. I still have some conservative tendencies, but they not served by today's conservatives.

    I am 58 and wish to conserve liberal values.

    This places me at odds with illiberal leftists and illiberal righties, both.

    If you say so. You've really got a knee-slapper going. I can hardly contain the laughter. As usual, derailing is always funny. But, TheGirlNextDoor loves your answer so it's gotta be just the way it is.

    By your posts...you must be a true patron of political philosophies...or at least one, perhaps. And you probably didn't stoop or bend over a bit to pick it did ya?
