3. The only thing that they are "conservative" about is their compassion

My condolences for your hardships. Repbulicans, by and large, seem profoundly ignorant and/or unconcerned about the effects that their ideology/policies have on people like themselves and until or unless some kind of tragedy befalls or affects them directly, they typically remain ignorant and/or unconcerned and continue existing inside their little "bubble". There is plenty room for debate about the size and scale of government and what the best policies for addressing certain problems, but the biggest problems I have with most right-wingers/Republicans is that they prefer not to debate the issues and would simply prefer to do what they want to do whether or not it hurts people or even if it works at all, never change course even when it's obvious that what they're doing isn't working (they simply just attack the critics personally), they decry everybody else's policies but rarely (if ever) have any demonstrable alternatives, and, rather than constructively seek solutions, they simply demonize everybody else as anti-American, tyrannical, abusive, divisive, freeloaders, etc so that they can ignore them (and make everybody else ignore them as well).
