As y'all might surmise, I've been busy elsewhere.
However, I do have thoughts about the "conservatism" versus "GOP" arguments. And boy have I come across some plug-ugly nasty so-called "conservatives". If their argumentation style is representative of conservatism, then, no thanks.
Here's the rub for both "parts" -- each can sound too much like liberals in their "we support the troops but not the war".
And that's the nexus the Dems are counting on.
Unfortunately for the "conservatives", many of their group have been infiltrated by "special interest groups" and "cells".
Is there a way through this?
Yes. Keep your eyes on the GOP.
