I was trying to think of an easy way to define what a conservative is. Good luck, huh? (neocon??) I decided to use the word TULIP which is usually associated with Calvinsim. Please, this thread isn't about Calvinism, I just thought it intersting that I could find many conservative issues using the word and adding an S at the end. Here is how I broke it down.... please let me know what you think. T. Taxes... Lower taxes, less government interference in industry & business, control spending U. Use of military. Strong national defense, increase size of military, support our troops in harms way by equipping, encouraging and evaluating the options given by generals L. Life style. Family values evidenced in their own personal life, promotes marriage of a man and a woman I. Immigration. Secure border first, No amnesty, Immediate deportation of illegal aliens who have committed crimes here or elsewhere, penalize those who hire illegal aliens P. Pro Life. Believes in sanctity of life, against stem cell research, support the ban on partial birth abortions S. Supreme Court appointees. Will appoint strict constitutional constructionists,does not make law, but interprets the law based on the US constitution. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= I know that some other things could be added to each of these points. I just wonder???? How many points does your candidate have? Let the fun begin! I think mine may be a 4 pointer!
