re: #601 Cato the Elder
The “Modern” Conservative is pro-foetus and pro-war… but not pro-child or pro-veteran to anywhere near he same extent.
Modern total package media conservatives - and their acolytes - would be more than willing to sign away Roe V Wade but would never fund the extra adoption placements, or neo natal care or counselling.
Same for the Vets - neiether of the current wars was funded by the GOP congress - debt was sold to china and the borrowing never stopped the pissing away of a surplus never stopped. But suddenly they ran out of money for Vets care/homeless shelters and on and on.
Neither principled nor conservative.
