Conservatives are not against helping others. Going up the ladder of life and helping others along the way by maintaining the safety net to catch those who fall or cannot climb to a better view.
As Cl West mentioned, this safety net is to catch and help get up those who fall, it is not a Hammok to keep you in the "siesta" mode.
We are all free to climb this ladder. Stregthening individuals to do so, instead of watching them "sleep" into the collective sludge ideoloy , is a nobel value and of constructive moral duty.
