What exactly is the difference between a conservative and a republican?
I will be doing a whole huge blog post about it in the very near future, there are many differences.
As a whole Republicans are not:
- Women haters
- Education haters
- Minority haters
- LGBT haters
- Rich, Old, White Man Lovers
We share the same values of a small government, but mostly Conservatives worry about “trimming the fat with ‘unnecessary’ spending.” Notice how I put unnecessary in quotations because what they see as unnecessary is out-right absurd. Republicans believe in strong state’s rights to make the most important decisions that affect our every day lives.
There is a huge misconception about the party as a whole, and it’s the party’s own fault, because we have let the extreme few have the loudest voice. We are struggling to get back to the middle road because extra-conservative groups like the Tea Party have the money and the megaphone. It’s really, really a shame.
As I said, I will soon be posting a big compare and contrast info post about the differences between Conservatives and Republicans, as well as Democrats and Liberals. Watch out for it; I’ll have it up within the next few days!
