One of the main issues is that Conservatives don't fight against ACTUAL Liberal events that happen in non-sensational ways.
For example, Conservatives want small government... which means, ultimately, small towns. Yet, take a small town like Woodstock GA... the amount of
old land being sold off to big builders, is increasing the population in ways that CREATE and REQUIRE big government. This same town raised holy
hell when one individual small business owner wanted to build a small shed to expand their home business, yet BIG DEVELOPMENT of massive amounts of
housing continues unchallenged.
A conservative response to this would be an initiative to STOP all the new building and have stricter zoning laws. But the conservatives in that
town are content to watch their TV's and read their Facebook feed, and not lift a single finger to stop the true LIBERAL and PROGRESSIVE menace that
is plaguing their towns.
Now don't get me wrong... I believe in liberal and progressive capitalism when it makes sense to do so. For example, in this case, the liberal forces
at play, if stopped by true conservative values, would lead to the development of a NEW SMALL TOWN further out from the area which in turn would
create more people who want small government, or to modernize some of the smaller towns in North Georgia, but only until conservatives in those areas
felt enough was enough as well...
However, at this point, conservative vs liberal is basically one sports team vs another regardless of the players or their stats.
