Why I am a Conservative

I grew up on a farm in a very conservative rural southeastern
Indiana environment. My parents and most of my family were, and still
are conservative,and those values no doubt rubbed off on me. But as I
look back and began to question things,I realized that those teachings

techniques that “work.”

About the time I was forty , having experienced a good portion of
“life” , and not having everything turn out the way I had planned, even
though I had tried to do everything the “right” way, (get a good job,
join the right clubs,etc.) I began to question my values and look for
