If conservatives really prefer conservatism as they claim (all self sufficient, guns a blazing, roads privatizing, mind your own business etc.) then why do they gather around some elite socialist such as McRomney? a man publicized on elite socialist networks? why are they trying to hand over another victory to socialists by nominating such a socialist as conservative? I don't get it. One possibility I can come up with is that these so called conservatives are really pooping in their pants but want to sound tough, independent, self relient, and the best way to do that is to pretend to be conservative - there's nothing conservative about Bush spending trillions of dollars chasing Obama bin Biden and the 9:11 attackers and what not. I need straight answers folks.
