Your query is incomplete. TEA is alive and well and Conservatives never compromise our values.
eta_iota, you would learn a lot more about the Conservative way of thinking. If your were to read the board and not just come in and check your post. There is a lot you can learn that you will not get at your liberal Duke University . All it cost is your time.
I am required to conduct this survey, but since my sample size is so small, I wouldn't be able to draw any conclusions about conservatives, or any group, in general. The results of my survey will say nothing of substance about any particular group since I am so limited in my capabilities as a student.While I do welcome the chance to learn about conservatism (I welcome the chance to learn just about anything), this survey is not for learning purposes. I just need try my best to get some data for this class.I'm sorry if I have offended you in any way.
I understand your dilemma, but the problem you face here and in many other forums, is most of us are old farts who hate surveys, polls, and inquiries of any kind.Also over the years we've been inundated with students wanting our time and opinion, only to discover there is never any consideration given for true Conservatives/Classic Liberals in the image of our founding Fathers wishes for this Nation.In other words, these so called surveys lump us in with Republicans or Democrats, of which we are neither.I hope this explains the issue better. My suggestion would be to hit sites like http://imgur.com/ or other high traffic social sites.Good luck, and maybe you can show this to the teacher as evidence as to why Conservatives have no interest in surveys, especially after being burned continuously by leftist media and the GOP/RNC.We trust no one, especially govt.
