Based on your post, I would guess that is part of the problem in this country, too many people don't know what conservatism really is. Too many people equate being a Republican as being a conservative. That used to be a good assumption, but for the last 20 years or so, that has not been the case.
Conservatism is essentially being responsible for your own actions and holding others to the same standard.
Conservatism means working hard to support your family and yourself and expecting others to do the same.
Conservatives see that the government is a necessary evil in our lives, but want to limit that gov't to it's basic duties and responsibilities. They realize that gov't is not meant to be a charity and take care of everyone that has shirked their responsibilities, but rather it exists to provide for law and order and the defense of the country. It is the job of citizens and religious organizations to provide charity to the needy.
Conservatives believe that people have the right to live their lives as they see fit as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others.
Conservatives believe that it is the choices one makes in life that determine their outcomes, not who they know or who they are related too. And if gov't is doing their job by staying out of our lives, that will always be the case.
Unfortunately, Trump does not generally espouse these ideas.

OR you could believe that Cruz is anointed by God and lay hands on his papa and listen to him talk in tongue,Talking about nutjobs you are laughable.You believe that this jackass is .going to end the IRS.You have to be a bonafide idiot to support Cruz.
Go sober up, you're the only one who considers that a suitable tipple.

Then vote for the same people that have run this country into the ground since FDR.Every President since and including FDR have appointed members of the CFR and Trilateral Commission.Most of you Cruzets don’t even know or care who these organizations are.This is why they need to destroy Trump.Now they are trying to use the abortion issue.What a joke and a money making racket for both sides of the issue.

But Cruz is going to end the IRS single handedly.Wow he is a genius anointed by GOD.This ***** would go down faster than Goldwater.
