What Conservatives Aren't

In this column by John Hawkins, he details and debunks some of the popular misconceptions about Conservatives.

Condensed version:

  • Conservatives don't dislike minorities.
  • Conservatives don't want women kept barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen.
  • Conservatives aren't anti-science.
  • "Conservative" and "Republican" aren't necessarily the same thing.
  • Conservatives aren't theocrats.
  • Conservatives don't rig elections.
  • Conservatives don't want to pollute the environment.
  • Conservatives aren't in the pocket of the rich.

Obvious to those of us who are Conservative, but sometimes it helps to spell things out for those other people.
