What is a "true conservative"?

Surely John Cornyn, with a rating of 86 from Heritage Action, is a conservative from the Senate.

All Republican members of the Texas delegation to the House are conservative.

Congress is made up of the House of Representatives and the Senate.  So the title is correct.

That's not what the title is asking for.  And if I can't add people I consider conservative (and who the vast majority of voters consider conservative), then your thread is worthless.

Jeff Flake is not a representative; he is now a Senator.  And he was opposed to defunding Obamacare and was on the Gang of Eight on Immigration. 

So just what is a "Tea Party type" if Jeff Flake qualifies?  John Cornyn has a higher rating from Heritage than he does.

I say it is anti tax, less government. Those are just 2 examples....I am sure they may be more but they lean way away from more government and toward the constitution.

My Congressman and friend Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is one of the one who isn't just a Conservative but the testicular fortitude to say it like it is.

Reagan would not qualify;  he raised taxes three times as president.

good question. all I have heard about him he was. What do you think is a true conservative? You or anyone else here. I want to know. I am sick to death of McCain, Gramercy and Bohner types. They cave to the dems. I am sick of bipartisan votes and those who par take in it. .

I will add to the list of not being conservative, those who want amnesty   aren't conservative.

Certainly not by the litmus tests today, of these digital entertainment and discussion forums.

Reagan signed abortion enabling legislation, and approved illegal immigrant amnesties.

One strike and you are OUT. Rubio, is just one current example.

But alas, these forums are self-selecting, and the trend is to only want to play with people with nearly identical views.

So you do NOT interface with other views.
