Since Conservatives have been doing a lot of "soul searching" lately -- trying to figure out who they are, and what they stand for -- I thought we should try to lend them a hand.
Because afterall what are "friends and colleagues" for, if not to give some helpful feedback, on those "rare occasions" when, they might be actually desperate enough to hear it.
So let's give it a whirl, shall we ...
What is a Conservative?
A Conservative is someone who wants nothing in Government to change (long as they are in charge.)
A Conservative thinks the world should never change, society should never change, and if they could somehow dial everything back to the 1950's -- where Ward Clever was King, and Ronald Reagan was hawking lightbulbs for GE -- that everything in the world would be just swell.
In in word, a Conservative wants everything to be "just peachy" again -- like when they were kids.
What is their Biggest Problem?
Oh so many options, so little time.
If I had to boil it down: Conservatives Biggest Problem is that they think the Role of Government is that it should have No Role.
That once they finally get to turn back the clock to "Peachy-ville" -- what Bill O'Reilly fondly recalls as Levittown, back in his formative years --
that then at that magic moment, Government should just Quit.
Finish. Done. Call Grover to put it out of its misery. The Conservatives have finally found their Nirvana.
Well, I know there may be as many opinions on this topic, as there are Americans. So have at it, lend our fellow citizens a hand. Someone needs to help them move all those "brick walls" out of the way ... if they are ever to arrive anywhere at all ...
