Why Won't Conservatives Just Drop Social Issues?

No, we conservatives should NOT be pushing our social agenda. If the federal government was operating at the constitutional level, then social engineering would not be an issue, for conservative OR liberal. In every issue, the government is the issue. Period.

Good question, and one that was asked of me by a conservative veterinarian friend of mine last week. He is completely on board with conservative fiscal principles, (when applied), but he doesn’t understand WHY we on the “Religious Right” are still concerned about abortion, gay marriage, etc. “You need to drop it”, he said.

Let me try to explain why we don’t and why we shouldn’t. Those of us on the Religious Right, contrary to popular belief, are not interested in taking away rights from those who disagree with us. We’re just trying to maintain what rights we have left....
