I would say that one big complaint is that the government is too engaged with picking people who are worthy of representation by picking groups that get special favors, etc. There are many groups of course on both sides. I think a true conservative would say that the government is there to make laws (as few as possible that can address the issues of its citizens) and enforce them without consideration of the various factions which exist...as long as they fit the overall scheme of the original intent of the constitution.
Nothing wrong with that. Do you think that affording corporations the same rights as individuals fits the scheme of the original intent of the constitution?
