A troubling issue to me is how do you define Conservative? Liberal? Democrat? It seems to me all parties have deviated greatly from what their parties were once defined as. In a lot of recent debates the focus has been on things like birth control and religious affiliation. Ideally, according to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, should our presidential candidates or any of our elected officials even be talking about these issues? Shouldn't these things be individual liberties afforded to the American People?
