The biggest problem is never rebutting the demonstrably false assertion that the Social Issues on the conservative platform are government intrusions.
Abortion: The Government has created an artificial and un-scientific "non-human" class that can be slaughtered like chattel.
Women's "Health": Nobody has a platform banning contraceptives, but forcing taxpayers to fund them and businesses to insure them is horrific. Fertility is not a disease.
Gay "Marriage": Expanding privileges without a Public Interest - essentially discriminating against all partnerships that don't involve sex just to pander and "normalize" behavior contrary to Natural and Common Law.
These are intrusions and usurpation that real Conservatives fight.
