  •  Conservatism is (0+ / 0-)

    as conservatism does.  If those who own and embody the conservative movement believe certain things and take actions to turn those beliefs into reality, if they define those beliefs and actions as what conservatism is, then for others to call that conservatism is to respect their OWN choice of language.  Which is a signal difference from the manner that the self-defined conservatives and the self-designated conservative movement have poisoned the name "liberalism" with unrelated or entirely imaginary characteristics--successfully!  Why shouldn't we call them what they choose to call themselves while accurately describing the policies and politics they embody?  Sounds like more unilateral surrender being demanded of liberals.  Which liberals are good enough at doing on their own.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
