"Fundamental conservative messages" -- Mark Tapscott recites four of them

I like his list a lot:
individual freedom, limited government, a strong national defense and a recognition of the special role of America as the shining city on a hill
I don't self-identify as a conservative however, because the term carries so many stray meanings. Too many people -- on both sides of the aisle -- think conservatism is about taking specific positions on issues like abortion, gay marriage, and religion.

The Reagan quote in Tapscott's post still resonates.
