Here, I'll start:
It's quite odd.... what some people consider to be 'politics'.... often, I would describe it as 'bullshit'. But that's just me.
Conservatives know shit ain't fair and there are certain truisms which are universal and cant be rationalized away with all the feel-good-isms in the world.
Liberals want to mold shit to be they way they feel it should be, ignoring hard reality.
Feelings don't feed the Bulldog.
what passes for 'conservatism' today is actually reactionary politics.... or the desire to return to the status quo ante... in this particular era, that being the dark ages and pre new deal depression era politics.
