Never Said I Was A Conservative

Mark Noonan, via Captain's Quarters:
Now, what do we conservatives (many of whom are highly upset right now) want? We want taxes reduced massively;
And spending too.
we want the War on Terrorism won;
I'm willing to be patient, as long as we see solid progress.
we want Social Security privatised;
Not all in one go, perhaps, but over time it should be dismantled.
we want abortion at least highly restricted if not banned outright;
Banning abortion has historically been about as effective as banning alcohol, and with similar side-effects. Banning some current practices, I can agree with.
we want prayer back in public schools;
I don't want prayer in public schools. I don't not want prayer in public schools. But I certainly don't want to see prayer mandated in public schools.

If individual students want to pray, they should be allowed to. And that's as far as it should go.

we want tort reform;
Oh yeah.
we want regulatory reform;
Always, but that's a process that will last as long as there are regulations.
we want increased nuclear power and oil drilling;
Pretty much, yes.
we want our borders secured;
Such is the right of any nation.
we want illegal immigrants deported;
Yes. There are, if not two sides, then still one-and-a-bit sides to this.
we want government spending to be heavily cut;
Yee-hah!
we want conservative judges to be approved yesterday
Conservative? I'd settle for intelligent and honest.
