One mistake both sides of this argument keep making is in thinking that Republican=conservative and Democrat=liberal.We no longer have an actual two-party system,have not in some years.What we have is a 'progressive' fascist system with two names and a puppet show for the masses.

Exactly! Even formerly sensible and practical R's can be swayed by the temptation of "free" money - even some church-going, supposedly moral people. One person recently wrote in to my state's (SC) largest newspaper, proud that SC gets $1.35 for every $1.00 sent to DC, and she wanted us to take the O'care money and run. People like this'll be crying to Uncle Sam for another fix when the "dope" runs out in 3 years. This just plays into the hands of the single-payer federal government takeover of healthcare. And the idiots are too stupid to see it - and they vote! And they don't stop to think that, if the country goes bust, we all go down together.

“The popular media narrative is that this country has shifted away from conservative ideals, as evidenced by the last two presidential elections. That’s what they think. That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates in 2008 and 2012.”

Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas) drew applause with that line, as he spoke at last week’s “Conservative Political Action Conference’ (“CPAC”) in Maryland. And if there’s any sure-fire way to draw applause from a conservative audience in 2013, taking a swipe at both the media and the Republican Party is probably a good strategy.

Yet if there is...
