Ah, yes... what is a Conservative these days? Thank you for putting some definition on your particular stripe, but it is one of a great many that I have seen. In fact, it is quite popular for the Regressive Conservatives to declare that Republicans are not true Conservatives - and they believe that King Kon is a True Conservative, to boot.

So you see, some of us may have a lot more knowledge of the range of Conservatives than you do, since your definition appears to be fairly specific and exclusive. This is a glitch in the functionality of discussions, if a word carries more than one meaning.

Trying to discuss socialism (small 's') is fraught with many of the same pitfalls and traps... we can't really discuss a thing without agreeing on definitions first.
