    Conservatives SAY they are against big government. They say they want to cut spending and shrink the size of government. Well, here's John Kasich's latest idea.

    Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich proposed creating a new government agency to promote Judeo-Christian values around the world.

    The new agency, which he hasn't yet named, would promote a Jewish- and Christian-based belief system to four regions of the world: China, Iran, Russia and the Middle East.


    "We need to beam messages around the world" about the freedoms Americans enjoy, Kasich said in an interview with NBC News Tuesday. "It means freedom, it means opportunity, it means respect for women, it means freedom to gather, it means so many things."


    "There's nobody who's spent more time shrinking government and cutting budgets than I have," Kasich, the former head of the House Budget Committee said, adding that not all government programs are equal.

    Most of the republicans running for president are just like him, big spending, big government "conservatives". Hypocrites is the right word.

    He's obviously pandering to Iowa evangelicals with this idea.

    Ya gotta love his line, "not all government programs are equal". Well, of course, John. Conservatives are against government programs so long as they are proposed by the Democrats.

    Kasich is not a conservative. Not by any standard.

    That's why I put "Conservative" in quote marks.
