    For all those establishment Republican "moderates" (a.k.a. liberals), like Karl Rove, who insist that we need a Republican "moderate", like Flip Romney, to win against Obama, I would officially like to prove that Ronald Reagan was a TRUE social conservative who won not one, but TWO LANDSLIDE ELECTIONS, against Jimmy Carter back in 1980, and against "Fritz" Walter Mondale back in 1984.

    And to point this out, I would like to officially introduce the ONLY book that ANY President of the United States has ever published, while in office: Ronald Reagan's "Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation".

    Reagan published this book back in 1983, right before he won a second term as President in a LANDSLIDE election, back in 1984. I love Ronald Reagan. And I am NOT ashamed to admit it, unlike some of those "establishment" Republicans who keep trying to tell us to "get real" and that the era of Reagan is "over".

    Without further interruptions, I would like to personally introduce the ONLY book which Ronald Reagan ever penned, while in office, called "Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation".

    Here is the official picture of the book's cover:



    Hopefully, true conservatives will finally realize that nominating "Obama-lite" will only result in getting Obama re-elected.

    What are the issues (one or two word titles) which define being a social conservative and how are they related to each other or the definition of conservative?

    This isn't a grammar lesson or a gotcha- I'm merely sick of various party members (Democratic and Republican) trying to restrict the meaning of conservative or liberal to their view of what the party should look like.

    Abortion is always a difficult issue. As a rule, I just don't discuss it and don't intend to now beyond the fact that abortion has nothing to do with illegal immigration, mass immigration, the moslem threat, or gay rights. Sure, you can jump through some hoops to make a connection if you like, but this isn't the Kevin Bacon game, it's serious.

    The bottom line is that abortion is best left alone.

    So now that abortion is out of play, what defines a social conservative and what has it got to do with being a fiscal conservative or a foreign policy conservative?

    We need to stop illegal immigration. That is neither left nor right, it's simply what needs to be done.

    We need to deport illegal aliens in this country, otherwise we're sending a mixed message, and we're also taking on a huge burden and population increase.

    We need to stop mass immigration and any notion of "fairness" or ethnic balance in immigration. We have something of value here, we only need to bring the very best in to further our perfection. The Kazon are inferior? We do not assimilate them.

    We need to stop Islamic infiltration of this country and ignore the tears of misguided people. Islam is incompatible with liberty, the Islamic nations have proven that.

    These are not conservative or liberal positions- they are rational and correct positions.

    Mike...the problem is that Rick Santorum doesn't represent Reagan either.

    the tea party was created to fight against big government conservatives like Santorum.

    So are you implying that Flip-Flop Romney, the guy who created the blueprint for Obamacare, DOES represent Reagan??

    Dude, you need to get a grip...

    You see romney where there is none. You're the boy who cried romney... Get over yourself. Most of what you think you've found out has already been discussed here....

    We have a pretty good understanding of what romney is about...
