The Conservative Agenda

Apparently John Tester's a big hunk of conservatism, at least that's what I keep hearing. So, I bring you the conservative agenda:

  • Supporting renewable and alternative energy sources (biofuels, bitches!)
  • Raising automobile mileage
  • Pro-choice
  • Protecting public lands
  • Country of origin labels for food imports
  • Affordable health care
  • Enforcing immigration laws for immigrants and employers
  • gun rights
  • A plan to end the war in Iraq
  • Increasing the minimum wage
  • Repealing the Patriot Act
  • Changing Medicare D to allow price negotiation with drug companies
  • No to social security privatization
  • Pro stem cell research
  • Middle class tax relief
A couple of these are identified more strongly with conservatism, and a couple of them are "conservative" or "liberal" depending on the details, but if these are our new conservative democratic overlords, fine by me...
