You Define: Conservatism

So we will ask you: Define a conservative person?
Why? Because we fine too many different definitions on a simple word.

Being Nice Is Not A Qualification To Be President

It never fails you’ll see people who claim to be “conservative” turn completely “socialist” when their champion is under attack for something their candidate said or did. If you are going to show me the facts, you better show me where the error was made. Because being nice is not a qualification to be President.

Do not claim that we need a strong leader and when candidates show their strengths on issues plus campaigning which may involve your champion being factually attacked, start to cry foul when a fact is being used on them.

Donald Trump has made some hard statements about other candidates. His statements have been shown to be all true. The problem people have is they don’t like it when you beat up their champion for President.

Donald Trump said Thursday that Ben Carson’s self-described “pathological temper” is incurable — adding that it’s like the sickness of a “child molester.”

“It’s in the book that he’s got a pathological temper,” Trump told speaking about Carson’s autobiography. “That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that … as an example: child molesting. You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”

Ben Carson reply to Trumps statement: “I’ll pray for him.” Carson reply article

If that is your rebuttal I’ll say Trump statement is true.
