I'm not really using it as a pejorative, just a descriptor.
A lot of conservatives are pro-centralization, but I think its single handedly the worst thing that has ever happened to human civilization.
I don't think conservatives will accept living in a nation that legalizes abortion forever either. Child murder is quite intolerable, and even if you reject that that's what it is, at least a quarter of the country believes that it is. This is going to split the country just like slavery did.
There's no meaningful compromise on our "differences" either. Liberals are pushing and conservatives are playing defense.
I'm happy to let you live in your ideal liberal society. I don't want to stop you. I wish people like me had the same respect. Sadly, it won't happen until lesser magistrates start standing up and resisting globalists.
