The founding fathers would not embrace many of the policies and fallacies pushed across this forum as "true conservatism." Like Foghorn Leghorn would say, "Yap-yap-yap, keep that mouth flappin' and do no listenin'."
No, the GoP is what corrupted the meaning of the word conservativism- here's an example.
You may be conservative, but the GoP isn't. They just finished nominating a guy for VP that voted for all almost all the spending he possibly could when Bush was in office, including bailing out bankster crooks with your money.
