Much More: Conservatives used to care about community. What happened? - The Washington Post
They never cared about community.
Conservativism is the philosophy of "me, mine, and myself".
They only care about communities in other countries. In this country, they call that "socialism".
Maybe that has been your experience, but not mine. I'm 65, and I don't ever remember Conservatives being so hateful, radical and selfish as they are today. That's why I truly identify with the OP.
This of course is the sad consequence of conservatives abandoning these values and replacing them instead with the political expediency of social conservatism, religious fundamentalism, and rightwing extremism.
Conservatives once played an important role in American political society, as a counterbalance to the lefts idealism, lost now to the radicalism of the partisan right.
Why care when all liberals will do is have the government regulate what you worked hard for and try to come and take it by means of a tax. And then when they finally control it fuck it up and blame you for it.
Rather than attempting to deflect, respond to the issue in the OP.
Taxes? Taxes are the lowest they've been in about 50 years. Regulations? How are regulations hurting you? Do you trust corporations to self-regulate?
Thank you. I agree.
