I realize this is a hornet’s nest, and I’ve posted it specifically because I want to know your honest opinion. You know how I feel. As a pro-choicer and a conservative it would do the party good to have authentic conservatives like myself in the party. It would also make winning elections possible. And, when the GOP wins and small government prevails, that’s also good for people of faith and the values that make this country great and strong. So here is a poll on the matter and comments by Michael Steele. Essentially, you’re voting on whether or not someone like myself can be considered a true conservative and if the Repub Party should embrace people like me.
I ask that you listen Steele’s comments before you vote on the poll. What concerns me is his presumption that faith-based opinion are conservative opinions. That’s just not true. Conservatism is a very specific framework regarding small governmen. Religious politics are a completely different dynamic. Thanks
