So many people claim to be conservative out of one side of their mouth, but out the other they bitch and moan about the terrible state of the status quo and lobby for decidedly progressive change. The only theoretically conservative position they hold is abject opposition to all progressive iniatives for change championed by the left. But their opposition is clearly not borne of conservatism, but rather a conflicting progressive agenda. True conservatives would oppose radical progressivism from both wings. Faux-conservatives seem to only oppose it when it's coming from left. And that's a shame.
