Its truly amazing just how far to the right the GOP base has moved. Many features of the affordable care act, cap and trade, and comprehensive immigration reform, for example, are all things mainstream Republicans supported just a few short years ago which are now viewed as tantamount to Marxism by the Tea Party.

"Despite this, real conservatives still exist and you won't usually find them at a Tea Party gathering or protesting a Mosque. In fact, you might be surprised at how normal a lot of them are."

I like to think that's a category I fit in. This fiscal conservative, who lives a monogamous married straight life has no patience for the bastards that ruined my brand.

Oh and about my personal lifestyle, it's just right for me, and my wife. i would never suggest it is the best or only right way to live. It's just a great fit for D_L and myself.

Despite this, real conservatives still exist and you won't usually find them at a Tea Party gathering or protesting a Mosque. In fact, you might be surprised at how normal a lot of them are.

I severely disagree.

I've known some otherwise normal folk that can exhibit some seriously fucked behavior underneath (found an RFID = Mark of the Beast brochure on my aunt's table). Obviously, as my relatives I still love them. But the fact that their sort of belief system has directly influenced government policy with substantial public support leads me to the conclusion that conservatism - as practiced in the United States at least - is inextricably linked with bigotry.

And because of what I've been reading, I not only have no respect for such ideologies, but also next-to-no respect for anybody that holds them outside of familial circles.

That conservatives institute a litmus test actually helps, as it enables the rest of us to call a spade a spade easier.

Your beliefs are more in line with centrist libertarianism (lowercase L, to distinguish from the nutjob party) rather than conservatism. Remember, it's important to note that on many issues, America is still to the right of Europe. So our "conservative" is already their "far right."

I do agree on the point that "fiscal responsibility" has been misused though. I normally ascribe "fiscal conservatism/liberalism" with the ideologies and what they tend to spend on, rather than how much they actually do spend.
