Tensions Grow Between GOP, Conservatives On ‘Obamacare’ — It's kind of nice to see Republicans eating their own young. Though there's an assumption embedded in that headline which I question. Exactly which portion of the GOP is not conservative?

?otD: What are you doing today?

If you consider the actual meaning of 'conservative', that would be, well, almost all of it. ;-)

Zackly. The modern Republican/Conservative movement in the USA (and its offshore offshoots) are not remotely conservative, in the Burkean mold: they're some kind of bizarre radical syncretist cult who determine their ideological goals by (a) pure and simple reaction against anything perceived as "progressive" and (b) a thought process that can probably be summed up best as "CAN HAZ ALL THE MUNEY NAOW? WHY U SAI NO? U R TRAITOR!!!1!!"
