I am a Republican Conservative. I am about as conservative as they come. I have realized that I am not able to talk about my beliefs and views without being called names. I see this in the media and in public. I have learned to keep my mouth shut and not voice my opinion unless it is very necessary. What I am trying to say is that it is hard to be a Conservative in our present world. When will the side that claims to be tolerant accept that I have different views from them, just like I accept that they have different views than I do?
