Im a moderate, but I believe liberals really believe the things they say, and modern conservatives really dont?

....I've seen plenty of Democrats honestly trying to do things to help the poor, help the infirm get help, guarantee safe working conditions for employees, good schools for children, and what have you....

What passes for "Conservatism" is just a huge dog and pony show to confuse the ignorant and elderly into letting their corporate masters scr** us again and again.

Conservatives don't believe in small government, they raise the size record amounts each time.

They aren't against debt and deficit, they raise them by record amounts each time.

They aren't for "states rights" - they run to the federal courts each time a State makes a law they don't like.

Am I the only one to feel this way, or to see this?

Update:

I believe in real conservatism, not these Wall Street shills, in sheeps clothing pretending they give a damned about the Country when they don't.

Update 2:

Wall Street crony hucksterism is NOT conservatism - it's just not!!!!

    Yep. Exactly.

    Both are ruining us. I do not need the government for anything but police and defense. So why would I vote for anything else? I don't even need the fire department myself. I'm the third little pig I guess. What do I need fire services for if my house won't burn? As for poor or medical services, common sense and basic insurance serve me fine.

    It seems I am supposed to vote for what others want all the time. I am supposed to vote for their needs, not mine. Why do we even have the vote then?

    When I think of politicians using dog & pony shows to trick the ignorant and elderly while simultaneous selling out to corporate masters in between whiny jogs to the courthouse in an effort to engorge an already bloated govt --- I think of liberals.

    BTW, the reason you don't see conservatives passing laws to help the poor, enable the infirm, improve working conditions, and save the spotted three toed wombat etc is because....

    I'TS NOT THE GOVT' S JOB!

    When we do that stuff, we do it privately through civic and religious organizations, so you never hear about our role in it.

    'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.'

    They seem to have abandoned logic and reason.

    They are Advocates of a policy that empowers a strong federal government to enslave its people with the high tax burden incident to the support of extravagant and unnecessary social programs destructive to both the work ethic among the lower class, and the incentive to innovate and succeed among the working people .

    For real conservatism I look to William F. Buckley who said:

    "I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word 'fair' in connection with income tax policies."

    I suppose you will tell me that Buckley was a shill. Of course it wouldn't surprise me if you said that everyone that disagrees with you is a shill

    No you aren't the only one. The GOP has almost zero credibility now because they will say anything and do almost anything to get into positions of power, then do what they do best, kneel and lick the shoes of corporations and the wealthy. It is positively disgusting what the GOP has become.
