Romney is conservative? His budget INCREASES government spending by 3.1% each year (more than inflation + population growth). He wants to INCREASE military spending, even though we spend about 7X more than China (the next biggest military spender). Our soldiers have told us (via the campaign cash which went overwhelmingly to Ron Paul) that our foreign military meddling is making us less safe.
What exactly is conservative about Romney (other than I believe he'd have fewer regulations)? He's for big and bigger government.
