I'm interested in exactly what you find so unappealing about conservatism. You like a huge bloated federal government with ever expanding and unsustainable debt? Taxes going through the roof to fund one social program after another. Now the point here is that there is a major chasm between the Republican Party and true Conservatism. I don't favor ROmney per se because I don't feel he carries the Conservativwe trait. To me he is a slightly better version of Obama.
