Here is my priority list for life:
Catholic first...Conservative second...American third...Republican fourth...
Obviously my religion takes precedent over everything else.

I am a conservative second because I love American VALUES. If America ceases to hold traditional Judeo/Christian values, I no longer love America. I may mourn terribly for its loss, but if the majority of the country votes my values out, I am out. Just as the immigrants came (and still come) to this country for a better life, they not only come for the economic opportunities, but for the values and principles inherent in "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" .

I am an American third and a Republican fourth because I love my country (what it stands for) more than my political affiliation. If Republicans stop being conservative and stop believing in liberty over equality (seems to be getting close), then I would change my party affiliation in a heartbeat. If America stops believing in liberty over equality, I would leave this country in a heartbeat. (of course I will continue to fight the good fight before that point) I am not an American no matter what its values are. I am not a Republican no matter what its values are. Immigrants came to this country because their home countries values changed, or they discovered that America shared more closely their values.
There really are two Americas. Two irreconcilable Americas. A Left America and a Right America. Those who can't admit it are just burying their heads in the sand. This article by Dennis Prager calls it like it is. Calls for unity are disingenuous. Find out why here.....
