Conservatives believe in de-regulation, unless the regulations help their businesses make money.
Conservatives believe in strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, except for the part that says it’s up to the judiciary to do the interpreting.
Conservatives believe in states’ rights, unless the states are doing something they don’t agree with. Then they’ll restrict access to the states’ funding (paid by the states’ residents) and federalize the states’ soldiers to their bidding.
Turns out Conservatives are irrational and inconsistent. Just like the rest of us.
