According to Russell Kirk, a conservative American political theorist, historian, social critic and literary critic:
Being neither a religion nor an ideology, the body of opinion termed conservatism possesses no Holy Writ and no Das Kapital to provide dogmata.
The conservative simply believes an enduring moral order and human nature is a constant, and moral truths are permanent and this order signifies harmony.
Twenty-five centuries ago, Plato taught this doctrine - the inner order of the soul and the outer order of the commonwealth - but even the educated nowadays find it difficult to understand.
Otherwise, conservatives believe in continuity as the means of linking generation to generation and matters as much for society as it does for the individual; pays attention to the principle of variety as the preservation of a healthy diversity in any civilization depends on the survival of classes and differences in material condition; understands the principle of imperfection of human nature and human restlessness and that mankind would grow rebellious under any utopian domination and would break out once more in violent discontent or else expire of boredom.
According to me:
We're also a pretty financially prudent bunch too and expect government to be equally prudent with our money.
Kirk well known conservative type.

Despite the Obama administration's claim that HealthCare.gov is "vastly improved," insurance companies are still grappling with error-riddled files fed to them from the flawed website. The lingering glitch could cause major problems weeks down the road, resulting in people thinking they've signed up when insurance companies have no record of them doing so.
This is just part of the diversion away from all the scandals. The Democrats need this diversion, and the media is doing its assigned function to make everyone think there is nothing else going on, or has ever happened. They will spoon-feed some progress, keeping some problems, and the media will focus on that and ignore everything else.
That does sound like a conspiracy, doesn't it?

Nobody's been able to answer this question:
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
In case you've been in a coma for over a year, there was no spontaneous demonstration caused by one of a thousand anti-muslim videos on teh internet that didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack.
Do you have an answer?
But, this introduces another question.
Why is the White House still lying about Stevens dying of smoke inhalation?
This most certainly wasn't in your indoctrination session, but the muslims released a photo of Stevens' naked body being carried face down over someone's shoulder while Stevens is covering his face with his left hand. Corpses don't do that, moron.
Answer either one of those questions.

What the difference if you accept food stamps or part of your salary is subsidized by the government? People on food stamps actually need help. The oil industry does not.
So really, Dumbwaiter, man up & et a job that you actually have to earn your salary & not get subsidized.

Then it should be very, very easy for you to show us those subsidies. You talk about them. You just don't seem to be able to prove they exist.
Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows is on, show me the ghost.

Show me the subsidy to oil companies.

Subsidies to oil companies is an urban myth. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to oil companies in the United States.
Or, you can show us those mythical subsidies.

Get rid of ObamaKare. There will be less health care available for the people who pay for it, and the people who pay for it will have to pay 3, 4, 5 times as much just to get less.
Want health care? Don't do the things that cause you to be poor, dumbass. If you do the things that cause you to be poor, you will be poor. That means the only health care you'll have is what you get in an emergency room... which is more than you deserve.
Want more? Make yourself worth more.

I did post these earlier.

Evidently you chose not to read them or now conveniently forget.

To deny the existence after all the debate in Congress is just plain stupid.

I realize that talking to the TV is one of your bright spots in your subsidized day.

But hey, if my entire life's work had to be subsidized because I couldn't earn it on my own, I guess I'd deny it too.

Like I said, man up & admit it.

Twitter mockery forces Republicans to clarify that Rosa Parks didn't actually end racism
Sunday was Rosa Parks Day, and the Republican National Committee honored the civil rights hero in the best way they knew how:
Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism. http://t.co/ ...
—@GOP
Naturally, this gave birth to some epic Twitter mockery, under the hashtag #RacismEndedWhen, started by @FeministaJones:
#RacismEndedWhen Arnold and Willis were adopted by Mr. Drummond
—@FeministaJones
#RacismEndedWhen this black professor's white students got her reprimanded for discussing race. http://t.co/ ...
—@DrJaneChi
In the face of this, the RNC clarified:
Previous tweet should have read "Today we remember Rosa Parks' bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism."
—@GOP
Wait a minute. Did the Republican Party just admit that we don't live in a post-racial society? Or are they just saying that racism ended at some unspecified point after the Montgomery Bus Boycott? Billmon has a good suggestion for a follow-up, though:
RNC: "And tomorrow we remember the Roberts Court's bold stand and its role in fighting to stop people like Rosa Parks from voting."
