Every time they speak, they are telling us how they are the real conservative of the candidates. They are practically falling over themselves proclaiming to be the true conservative. The rest are just pretenders.

Why don't any of the Democratic candidates ever say that they are liberal?

1. Because they are conservative too
Kucinich had said he is a liberal, though.

"Liberal" by American standards is pretty far to the right anywhere else in the world.

5. I've noticed nobody's asked them just what the hell it is
that they want to conserve. It's certainly not a government of the people, by the people and for the people. It's certainly not the constitution, especially the Bill of Rights, nor is it anything that applies to the separation of powers and the checks and balances contained within; it's certainly not human life since all they want is more war, more of the time; it's certainly not even personal wealth, since their stupid tax policies have thrown this country into so much debt that the dollar is tanking and even the richest have seen their fortunes decline in value.

Conservatives? Not unless they can answer that question.
