What is a Conservative?
What is a conservative? The word has become so abused, it is nearly beyond recognition. Recently the Conservative Political Action Conference created national news over its identity crisis. With so many political candidates claiming to be “Conservative” on their election materials, they should be sued for false advertising.
A lot of “Tea Party Movement” sympathizers consider themselves to be conservative, yet the future of the Tea Party Movement is in question. Recently two tea party candidates lost their elections and some are wondering what that means.
One of the criticisms of the Conservative Political Action Committee, (CPAC) is that they did not include a pro-life panel or a marriage panel in their latest conference. Many are now wondering how this organization can ignore these two major social issues. CPAC is a collection of those who are considered the best and brightest conservatives in our county. The direction this group goes is a good barometer of our national commitment to conservative values.
