don't want to argue politics but the English Language may be another matter... "conservative" always bothered me as a party name... or preference ... since all those who considered themselves "conservative"... seem to do more towards conserving the status Quo in increasing pollution rates, lowering the survival rates of ecosystems, collapsing financial instututions, deleting social services, squeezing health and lowering educational standards, reducing taxes yet increasing expenditure on defence, and huge construction projects doomed to financial cost overruns and eventual failure to complete, rampant callous clearing, magnaminous mining multiglomerates and genetic ruination of God's creation...... how this = the Webster's definition or any other definition found in any dictionary for the word conservative I have no idea... <br>Conservative \Con*serv"a*tive\, n.<br> 1. One who, or that which, preserves from ruin, injury,<br> innovation, or radical change; a preserver; a conserver.<br><br> The Holy Spirit is the great conservative of the new<br> life. --Jer. Taylor.<br> <br>the wheel grinds slowly round<br><br> what have they done to our fair sister?<br>stabbed her with knives, tied her with fences and dragged her down...Jim Morrison
