Jim, it really doesn't make a lot of sense why you have to continue to explain this, especially to long-term FReepers.
Conservatives have the same values that have been inherent to Judeo-Christian society for several thousand years -- it's not like we are trying to introduce any "new" ideas.
Apparently, some people think they can be for abortion rights, homosexual rights, etc, and still be counted as conservative. Not so. They’re simply useful idiots for the left.
