A short history lesson. Conservatives did vote. We voted against the Austrian's lame proposals.
The urban myth, "conservatives didn't vote", now repeated by A CA Guy, was a red herring put out by FairOpinion to demoralize conservatives.
Proof there was no real Republican/conservative vote would simply be that the one proposition to notify parents if their kids were getting an abortion went down to defeat.
How in the hell with conservatives voting would that one go down?
It went down because conservative voting was way down.
The results on especially the parent notification issue proves it.
