    Conservatives have a burning desire to get out from under the government.  Perhaps it was the fact that many were drafted to go to war and felt that was unfair, maybe it was something else.  The huge problem with their theory is that the problems facing this country are not being addressed by their ideology.  The only logical conclusion is that the conservative ptb have brainwashed people into believing gov is bad so that they can gain control of money and power.  The r's had both houses and the presidency during Bush for 6 years and no help came for the middle class.  That should in itself be proof of the goals of the conservatives.  I will tell you that every single conservative I speak to spouts off about the nanny state etc.  It drives them all crazy to think they still have to listen and obey someone.  I have known this for a long time and I try to ask them questions about how they would solve problems.  They only ever spout talking points, they never have statistics or facts to back anything up. When I throw some facts out there they retreat to the welfare cheats tirade.  I have given up and tell them that they are no fun to talk to because they repeat stupid talking points and never have an idea of their own.
