Conservative Views are not stupid.
Lower taxes, Fewer regulations, Free and Open Economy, Freedom of speech and individuality, Free Market solutions to problems, strong defense. Are the basics of Conservatism.
Freedom of speech? The prez seems pretty thin skinned and would like to take just a little speech away I hear.
Freedom of individuality. Laugh, right. You can't see your party for what it is.
Fewer Regulations - means cutting corners to me in many cases, however there is a balance I would agree to that.
Lower Taxes, how low? You need takes, conservatives always talk lower, but they have raised plenty of taxes themsevles. Taxes are necessary, can there be too much? Yes. But there can be too little to.
Free and Open economy - Prez is trying to put us in a silo which wouldn't be open and sure he'd like free out, but wants to tax the shit in. That said, I think both parties in general are for free and open economy, I really haven't seen libs stopping business from making money, stock market always seems to do better with a lib in the white house.
Free market solutions to problems. Here is something I agree with. That said sometimes they should be and sometimes they should be gov't controlled. Both parties I think believe that, however I will agree they slant the opposite way from one another.
Strong Defense. We have had a strong defense for a long time now that spans both parties. The amount we put into our military under either party is historical. I do agree Conserves are more, but a liberal run America is far from weak.
