Chowhound, why i don't like 'conservatives'.. fair question... In my opinion, a person who is deemed politically conservative is more likely to be overly suspicious, fearful and preoccupied with crime against them - hence their welcome view of the death penalty and long sentences for criminals; an uncaring/unsympathetic lack in understanding in regards to people who are in poverty or who are suffering and are, as a result, in need of social support from the community; a tendency to emphasize individual needs over the common good of the community; a greater tendency to be religious fundamentalists who base their values on superstitions and often try to convert others including young children; they tend to embrace authority instead of questioning it when it is appropriate; they tend to hold an 'us and them' view of others who seem different, they don't understand the value of diversity and desegregation; many are often narcissistic to the extent that they are incapable of experiencing fulfillment upon helping other people in need; many believe in privatizing everything which only makes the rich richer and the poor poorer in my view; they often see compassion/gentle tendencies and pacifist views as weaknesses instead of strengths; they're more likely to embrace machismo lifestyles; they are more likey to be racist and sexist; they tend to believe that socialism is 'evil' and confuse it as an non-democratic system, etc etc etc

Interesting, I never heard it put quite like that before. I myself must be more of a moderate.

Default conservatives..

Yeah Chow, i'm referring to far right conservatives, which you are probably not. I share certain views with moderates - like you mentioned - I think anyone who is sensible including many conservatives value good work ethic or responsibility, and I'm in favor or monogamy as I feel 'open' relationships are unwise (like most conservatives) and I believe the government should proceed with grave caution and act in very 'conservative' ways in intervening in international affairs. I have reservations regarding whether casinos should be legal as do many conservatives I believe.. I'm sure there are other areas in common as well but these are the ones that come to mind first.. Growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta, where there were many hardcore conservatives and then moving to NYC led me to start questioning things a lot more than I did before..
