I vote for the socially liberal conservative all the time. Unfortunately, few exist so I find myself voting with liberals and know that there are enough conservatives and GOP moderates to balance out the idiot Left. It's just that the inane Left is countered balanced by the Angry Right, almost all of whom are avowed social conservatives who I dislike.
Nothing spineless about that. Just strategic since once social conservatism is exercised from the GOP, some serious business can move the country to the safe middle where it belongs.
