    Put plainly: conservatives want a country where they get big government
    benefits and small government restrictions, while imposing small government benefits
    and big government restrictions on everybody else.

    Despite claiming to support a small and unobtrusive government, the
    conservative movement has pushed heavily for increased governmental regulations
    on personal activities that they find objectionable—gay marriage and abortion
    rights being the most common things that modern conservatives decry and attempt
    to legislate away.

    Conservatives don’t see these restrictions as “big government
    overreach” simply because such regulations don’t overreach into THEIR lives,
    only the lives of others. The conservative hypocrisy in the realm of social
    issues is indicative of their ideological mindset and gives us a clear look
    into the conservative views on the size of government.

    If conservatives truly claim to be about small government and personal responsibility, they why do they consistently act counter to this claim?

    Conservatives are for smaller and less expensive, confusing and complicated bureaucracy. Maybe that's a foreign concept on the left coast which is drowning under a sea of red tape with confiscatory taxes to fund useless bureaucratic bull shat. Abortions are an expensive waste of human life and even Bill Clinton said he wanted to keep them rare. Abortion is still legal but Conservatives don't want to pay for them. That should be easy enough to understand even to victims of the sub-standard union based left coast education system.

    I think this explains why the left coast is truly the land of fruits and nuts.

    how does any of this address the issue of hypocrisy I addressed in the original post?

    The question on the table is if conservatives truly claim to be about small government and personal responsibility, they why do they consistently act counter to this claim? can you stay on topic?

    You're the one making the argument, the burden to support yourself is on you.

    You make accusations with no evidence. How the heck can I disprove non-existant evidence?
