restrict education to only those who they feel deserve it
That is absolutely not a conservative viewpoint. I can grant you that there is a minority that wants to make abortion completely illegal; I'd settle for just not getting mugged to pay for murders. Also, only the most extreme libertarians would argue for zero (0) taxes. The common thought is that the enumerated powers of the Constitution make sense, and should be funded. Mandating gun ownership, while bandied about, is about as un-conservative as mandating health insurance.
In all, you proffer a mostly distorted view of conservativism. Come on down to http://www.cpac.org/ and try some enlightenment for a change. It would help you a lot, I think. Can I sponsor a ticket for you?
Show me where I committed such an offense.
they would quickly revise the laws to allow them to purchase or shut down all the rest of them at will
I'm really, really bored with your series of slanders of both me and other decent Americans. Cut that out.
they have significantly differing views on the relationship of the role of government to the citizenry and the economy
The debate between R's & D's is not "Should we get our Thelma & Louise on?", but, rather, who gets to drive.
Local governments are no less corrupt.
Well, yes they are. Your local putzes cannot inflate the currency, and beggar the unborn.
If the Tea Party took full control we would see silence like none we have before. They've already been buying media outlets, they would quickly revise the laws to allow them to purchase or shut down all the rest of them at will.
Lord have mercy on you for slandering good Americans.
However, those two years have brought on voter registration laws designed to disenfranchise, laws so blatantly racist that it's pants-on-heads insane that anybody let them get away with it.
No hyperbole there.
Gerrymandered districts can't be fixed til the next census. Mobile voting could be a hell of a stopgap before then.
In my perfect future America, there would be a GPLv3 mapping algorithm that calculated all of the districts. You tell me how many parameters. But let the code and (read-only) data be free, and let the bun-fight move to how the data get collected and validated.
Screw these political parties. To the wall. With a large drill. And some jello on top.
