It has actually come to pass within my life time that conservative, is a bad word. This disgusts me to no end. What being conservative meant not so many years ago meant that you stood up for those that believed that a good amount of hard work, traditional values and good moral standing was the principles to stand by and to die for. It is now no where near that and in fact has come to be something that is vile and siding with communistic adherence. Some conservatives in office are good people that still believe the a fore mentioned is still what the minuet men of the revolution fought for. What our Constitution is build and written on and what the Flag of the U.S is all about. Millions since the mid 1700's have dies to keep it that way.

Conservative is a wonderful word. It has been badly bashed by the party that we all thought would stand for us. The Republicans no longer speak for conservative, hard working, responsible, God fearing people We are told we must embrace large government, more taxes, sodomy, and abortion or we are not in the mainstream. I say it is congress that is out of the mainstream and it has forced alot of things on us that none of us want like Obamacare. Sure there are all the leeches and parasites living off the government who will vote Democrat every time, but we still outnumber them and we have to take our country back for our children and grandchildren. We need to find a few really good men and women to lead us.

"Minuet men"? Love it! I can just see the patriots gathering after a hard fighting the British to do some graceful slow dancing.

What a conservative is has not changed. Some of our elected officials who claim to be conservatives are not conservatives. John McCain claims to be a conservative-that doesn't mean that the definition of conservatism is changed-it just means that John McCain is delusional.

John McCain is no more conservative than Obama. He does support the military, but that is about it.

It's official. Two of the most conservative Republicans in the House have been kicked off of the House Budget Committee by Speaker John Boehner.

Representatives Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Justin Amash of Michigan - both favorites of the anti-tax Tea Party movement - are among those Republicans voting most often against House Speaker John Boehner.

Huelskamp and Amash, who both will begin second terms in the House next month, voted against last year's deal to raise the federal debt limit and staunchly oppose any tax increases. Boehner has now included new revenue in...
