Oh, more trolling by the OP. Let's see what nonsense he creates tomorrow - not worth the response.

You may not be a Christian, but the nation was founded by Protestant Christians who incorporated their values into the culture and laws. That's just history.
Rightwing conservatives don't seem to like inventing new technology, being leaders in key products and services, or having good trade exports? Uh...what? What on Earth gives you that idea? The standard leftist criticism of conservatives is that they are too focused on these things.
Well, guess what? 80% of people in education are Democrats. And America spends more money on education now than any other industrialized nation in the world and more money now than it ever has before. So this criticism is just moronic.
Yes, I'm glad that there are people in America who are resisting the climate change nonsense.
Whereas your version of America is a nation caught in a morass of structurally high unemployment, a huge underclass of unemployable people who exist on the government dole, and a lack of the very innovation you wrote about earlier. News for you: the profit motive is the single greatest motivation for innnovation that has ever existed. But leftist morons want to demonize people who actually do produce valuable goods and services and confiscate the wealth they generate. There's a reason why the vast majority of the world's technological progress was made in America and not in any of the European social democracies.
Yes, the old liberal "either you support Obamacare or your hate sick people". It's baloney. Problems have more than one solution. Just because we don't like the left's idiot solution to healthcare, doesn't mean we don't value healthcare. Amazing as it may seem to you, your solutions to problems are not the only solutions. You'd think people who claim they value diversity would understand that.
Yes, the wonders of wealth redistribution. Where everyone gets mired in mediocrity. Where people who strive to excel are forced to pay for people who do nothing. But at least those do-nothings vote Democrat.
Yes, everyone can walk hand in and and smile. Unless of course you aren't a liberal. Then the left will boycott your business, disrupt your speaking engagements, and use the IRS to shut down your political voice.

Your ignorance of what conservatives want is truly astounding.
Remember these "people" claim to be smart, creative, and tolerant..That are the antitheses of it.

The highest tax rate is 35%. You need to get a better accountant

An America where everyone gives up their (gas burning) cars and ride Unicorns. Where no one is job-locked into working for a living.

The terrible scourge of human beings would be eliminated by returning to natural-organic, non-chemical using farming which of course would not supply enough food for this growing population. An America where those ugly roadside billboards would be eliminated by the natural beauty of giant windmills covering the once food-producing agriculture land.

A land where valuable resources (both blood and treasure) would not be wasted on improving or saving the lives of the millions of people who populate other countries.

An America where you have all the medical insurance you can consume thanks to your neighbors wealth. A place where expensive medical care would not be wasted on the terminally ill and aged.

As my state-run school teachers have always proclaimed "we have a dream"!

The reality of U.S. total average effective tax rates, local, state, and federal, combined, by income cohort. Data courtesy of liberal think tanks:

Bottom 20%: 13%
Middle 20%: 25%
Top 1%: 43%

Sorry guys but you cannot whine about taxes when you support the people that are taxing you and keep them in office.
