So your profile says you are from earth, is that correct?
Be conservative, think conservatively. It is essential if you are to leave a small impact.

Most conservatives think "just leave me alone do your own thing". Most nonconservatives think that they know best. and want to not allow others to think or act differently than their proscribed definition of right. I am an old hippy and must allow you to believe what you want. Can you say that about me?

Well, there are conservatives and conservatives, you know. (Reagan's 'big tent' thing...) There are some types of 'conservative' who thrive on making unnecessary smoke & noise, just as there are some 'liberals' who love their big, noisy, chrome-covered guzzlers. In fact, that love seems almost independent of politics.
