    Dear sealybobo
    For conservatives who are serious in their beliefs against running social programs and agenda through govt, this trend is completely disturbing, destructive, and backwards with no way out.

    If all the conservatives are preaching to keep control of funds, policies and programs OUT of govt hands, but more and more is going INTO govt hands.

    And if all the liberal politicians keep SELLING this "dependence on govt" as benefits to get voters to support this trend, then this will never end but keep going in that direction.

    So of course conservatives are fed up with this.

    The ones who are hypocrites about it may be even MORE upset. So it's ironic if the ones who HAVE been building programs outside of govt and "practicing what they've preached all along" may be MORE at peace (because they don't depend on govt in the first place); while the ones who HAVE been depending on govt and politics are the ones REALLY at odds. Because they have grown as dependent as the liberals they claimed to be different from.

    I hope this means pushing more people to invest and develop sustainable programs outside of govt controls, so this doesn't affect them so much. If conservatives are right, then we shouldn't be depending on govt. And if liberals are right about being 'all inclusive with diversity' then that ALSO means everyone organizing things on a grassroots "DIY" level so everyone gets their way regardless how different our needs and beliefs are.

    For either liberals or conservatives to achieve their ultimate goals, people need to "do it ourselves" anyway.

    Anyone who "lives in fear" that the "other party" is going to push "THEIR agenda through govt" at the expense of others, that spells misery. You can't depend on govt to "establish your religion" -- anyone who depends on govt for that is missing the point.

    You said "if conservatives are right". They rarely are

    Dear sealybobo they are completely right about NOT managing "social programs" through govt. Because it causes all this mess since people have conflicting beliefs.

    Since govt is NOT supposed to regulate policies based on beliefs, this is why it's such a convoluted mess.

    That's like trying to regulate communions, baptisms, prayers, sexual relations, etc. through govt when people all have different ways and means.

    If you want free choice, you don't want govt spelling out the terms and conditions on it or it contradicts itself.

    Conservatives are right about this, including when they themselves violate these very principles. the problems that result prove why we need to respect Constitutional limits on govt that otherwise prevent those messes!

    Thanks sealybobo
