This came up in the talk page over conservative novels. I view myself as a conservative: supporting a small, minimal government, one large enough to have courts, roads and a military. I value a commitment to a small government that is not intrusive over most other things. I view Ayn Rand, despite her atheism and shrill denunciation (in the same style as Stalin of her homeland) of the conservative movement as a valuable voice in defining economic conservatism. However, it seems that what is more valued is social conservatism here at CP. It feels that people feel that it's more important to have social conservative views than economic ones. As someone who falls closer to the middle on social issues (I really don't care what people do in the bedrooms as long as I don't have to hear about it), I've been wondering if CP is the place for me. So, is Conservapedia's focus on social or economic conservatism? Or is there room here for both of us? ArnoldFriend 07:39, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
