SUPREME COURT - Brett Kavanaugh

SUPREME COURT - Brett Kavanaugh
Lets start with some definitions:

1:  Having the power or tendency to preserve in a safe and entire state

3:  One who adheres to traditional, time-tested, long-standing methods, procedures, or views :  a moderate, cautious, or discreet person

1:  To keep in a safe or sound state (as by deliberate, planned, or intelligent care) :  preserve from change or destruction

Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary

The upshot is conservatives do NOT like change.  Change frightens them even when change is needed or if there is a better way to do anything.  This is an irrational view of the world (in fact the Universe).
