It's a$$-backwards, and frankly insulting in a way. Conservative sounds old; progressive is forward-thinking!!! I wish they'd chuck that word, but it's celebrated. Then they wonder why they're having difficulty selling the Republic. "Limited governmentalist", "pro-capitalist" etc I'll accept just about any definition but conservative. Also Rand's stuff about the defense of America on faith and tradition and The American Way. To the newcomer that'll really work. It's filled with such specifics.:confused:\n\nI keep having this negative image of Bob Dole in '96 falling from the stage and thinking that the election is over. That's along the lines of what I think of the word conservative.
