Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
I'm fairly firmly in the Bush camp and have been for quite a while. Domestic policy neoconservatism, Disraeli conservatism is more of my thing. We believe in an active government to uphold traditional values and enrich the lives of minorities and the underprivileged where possible. Government's job should in part be to ensure that in the process of aiding the underprivileged, it doesn't disrupt traditional social mechanisms which kept them stable (the churches, the family, and so on). We also stress the utilization of government---traditional social partnerships in the distribution of services rather than purely through a government administrative state. I.e. Faith-based initiatives, peer support, etc.
On the top of my plate I generally like his stances on education, he has a pretty decent outlook on mental health and other disability issues, is pretty close to what I view appropriate for bioethics....
His foreign policy, on the other hand, will have more differences from me (I'm more of a realist school on that front).

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
depends on who is on the other ticket
if hillary, my inclination would be 'yes' ... however, his political machinations this week have not served him well
My assumptions were correct, for the most part. Thanks for all who participated.
If it comes down to Jeb and Hillary, I will hold my nose and vote for Jeb.
NOT because I like him, but because Hillary would be detrimental to the nation.
Far too many Republicans and conservatives stayed home last election and look at what we got.
“You can lead a horse to water, but it is probably crowded with all those people you taught to fish.”
I think for right leaning Republicans Jeb Bush can not be the candidate. He is to left for their.
