What's a conservative
The heritage Foundation, a group that has long championed the traditional American experiment, believes that today's citizen does not have a good understanding of true conservativism because we don't have fair representation in the press and are being demonized by liberals.
Conservativism is more of a philosophy of life than a political party. (conservatives don't marginalize people, separate people into factions or pit one group against another. The liberals are in charge of that and are very good at it and don't need any help. Their favorite pseudo cause is class warfare. Instead of offering an real solutions, they just stir the pot and make everyone angry.
Conservatives believe that we are all in this thing together and that more than anything, people want and need to make their own way and want to contribute to society. This is done primarily by trading goods or services for money and is accomplished by something called jobs.
Conservatives, if rescued from job-killing, liberal policies, are good at creating jobs that decrease the unemployment rate one position at a time.
Liberals, on the other hand, make it almost impossible for conservative small business owners to hire people, because of higher taxes, over regulation and the ominous Obamacare law which will skyrocket their healthcare costs and leave them aimlessly wandering through two thousand pages of red tape.
Conservatives want the same positive outcomes that Obamacare touts for everyone. They just want to do it without bankrupting our nation, depersonalizing medical care and rationing doctor visits and life-saving drugs and procedures that always characterize the advent of socialized medicine. Every time.
Conservatives have sponsored legislation in the House of Representative for sane privatized medical care that would be available for everyone. Paul Ryan has a plan to save Medicare and Social Security, whereas Obamacare would spend at least $580 billion of Medicare funds each year that are supposed to be reserved for seniors. Bur hardly anyone knows these things, because the only avenues conservatives have to relay their ideas to the public are Fox, talk radio and letters to their constituents. Far-left liberals are working every day to silence Fox and talk radio.
