Over the years, Democrats have learned to mimic conservatism. They pretend to be conservative by using the right words to appeal to the majority, and those wavering in the middle, until they are elected. Then they show their true colors. They are chameleons.
This behavior was demonstrated successfully by the last three Democrat presidents (Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama). They all used the right words; appeared to be concerned about free-market economic growth; appeared to support the military, apple pie and the American flag; then, bang, when they got into office, they all began stomping on all they had pretended to support.
There are a lot of people out there not paying attention, and since this is the case, the left is successful in its quest to conquer through deception.
Wake up, America!
