My qualm isn't with social conservatives, but "compassionate" ones. I am not suspicious of social conservatives because of their pro-life views, which I strongly support, but because theirs was the wing of our party that got seduced by destructive, leftist ideas. Like the government's role in promoting home ownership, for instance.
I do not appreciate being called a social liberal, which I have never been, merely because I find the LBJ-like impulses many social conservatives tend to harbor to be unacceptable. Isn't the other side doing enough to ruin the country as it is?
