  •  I will leave the definition of real conservatives (0+ / 0-)

    to real conservatives, but there is a grain of truth to what you say.

    A real conservative, however, also believes that many things are better done by private charity than by government and that excessive taxes inevitably lead the heavy hand of government to choke out the politically unpopular, to the detrminent of everybody's liberty.

    And, of course, there is the religion problem.
    Taxing religion is a nasty mess from a first amendment perspective.
    Trouble is, giving religious activities preferential treatment is also a first amendment problem.

    So -- is it really so bad that a secular women's shelter gets the same treatment as one run as a mission by local churches?

    Etc.
