There is a constant push and pull between corporate and individual welfare in areas where they don't much intersect. Those who favour more controls of individuals are conservatives and those who favour more freedom for individuals are liberals. From that tussling comes the society we have at any given time as the pendulum swings one way and then another.
No Greta. It's the opposite. Fewer regulations.
It's part of Trump's platform.
Only liberty for business, but MUCH more control over individuals.
Hence the word "liberal", as in "liberty". Hence conservatives want to control of women's reproduction, sexuality, personal body chemistry, gender expression, artistic expression, plus they tend to throw a LOT more people in prison.
Greta, Leftists have filled the prisons in more ways than one.
Bill Clinton regrets ‘three strikes’ bill.
As for the rest, you are speaking from a No mentality, and that can be addressed in detail of philosophy and you may want to save it for later considering recent postings, however for the purposes of broadest introduction generality,
You are saying that conservatives want to say No to women.
This is understandable that you think that way.
However, your thinking is again 180 degrees away from objectivity.
No applied to conservatives is only predicated on the assumption that you are right.
But, you have no evidence.
And, you are wrong.
The fact is, conservatives function from a basis of Yes.
Spend some time and contemplate how putting abortion to the legislative test is anything other than saying Yes.
Trump also functions from a basis of Yes, even though someone may have a record of him saying, No.
Yes is the foundation of his life.
And now he represents the country, and must endure the nonsense of distraction and disunity of the Dems.
For the Left, it’s all about the power. Trump has it. They want it. And with Trump it’s not really Right or Left. It’s constitution vs establishment power-grabs.
