44. You do not think that conservative ideas and assumptions are conservative?

If you don't know how to address me then don't.
Re-reading my post it appears you mistake this to mean you, It was meant to describe conservatives in the party, there are many.

Social issues can be the only thing that separates such people from Republican conservatives. (just think Newt on the economy but pro marriage equality, there are some blue dogs like that)

I see many colors, only a few are available in our system, of them the two largest groups are conservatives and progressives.
I fail to see how a conservative view or law becomes another color simply because the same view or law came not from Newt in 93 but a Dem in 2009. One cannot change red to blue because you prefer to see blue when red is in front of you. In my opinion, re-branding a color name from red to blue is the childish thing.

But then I have known the blue since the sixties and know what it actually looks like.

I am sorry if you took this personally, perhaps there is something within that you need to look closer at, perhaps you are in many ways a conservative and that is why you take it so personally.

I apologize that the only way you knew how to take my post is as some sort of attack against you personally, it truly was not meant as such.
