    Conservatism (Latin: conservare, "to preserve")[1] is a political and social philosophy that promotes the maintenance of traditional institutions and supports, at the most, minimal and gradual change in society. Some conservatives seek to preserve things as they are, emphasizing stability and continuity, while others oppose modernism and seek a return to "the way things were".[2][3] The first established use of the term in a political context was by François-René de Chateaubriand in 1819, following the French Revolution.[4] The term, historically associated with right-wing politics, has since been used to describe a wide range of views

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    I think you'd find yourself in a small group who believes that "right wingers" aren't a type of conservative.

    Anyway, as I proud conservative, I'm happy that we do indeed picket.... true conservatives were among those at the forefront of the civil rights movement, if for no other reason than we recognize that racism is a idiotic economic position.

    As par, you misread what I said.. its that not all conservatives are "right-wingers", but thanks for trying

    You don't need to be a true conservative to be at the forefront of civil rights, nor to even recognize its idiocy.

    You very clearly answered "no" when asked if you thought right wingers were a subset of conservatives.

    I'll have to do more than "try" to understand what you mean when you write, because it apparently requires telepathy.

    You don't need to be a true conservative to be at the forefront of civil rights, nor to even recognize its idiocy.
    No kidding. Never stated or implied anything remotely contrary to that position.
