By definition, true conservatives would uphold the principles of our nation’s founders. Republican puppeteers and their puppets, however, have taken over the “conservative” brand and stood it on its head. Instead of defending our founding principles, they defend capitalism and corporations which have undone our founder’s goals and their seeds of democracy. They slander and smear socialism which actually reflects our founders’ ideas of equality, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; the general welfare; and so forth. Their religious cultist wing has even twisted the Christian love-thy-neighbour-as-thyself principle into hate-preaching against minorities and justifying corporate rule by divine right. Just as the “liberals” have been taken over by neoliberals (A.K.A. money-aristocracy-serving corporatists), “conservatives” have been taken over by neocons (A.K.A. money-aristocracy-serving corporatists).
This is what happens when people identify themselves with labels and parties and let scheming goons redefine their labels right under their noses and then wash their brains to fit the altered label.
