Again, you think "conservative" means libertarian, Old Guard Republican, "Business of America is Business" types. Such people are only a tenth of the electorate. The bulk of the GOP, what made it a majority party, was the defection of blue collar people from the party of cultural elite lifestyles. But now they see the GOP pursuing policies that add to the economic insecurity of their lives (cheap labor policies like free trade or "guest workers") and generate downwards wage pressure upon them. It is ridiculous to talk about an "ownership society" to people who see their economic status being steadily eroded by competition with cheap labor.
