There's a fairly significant difference between not having anything to hide and not minding government spying. You're demonstrating that there's a disjoint between what is actually said and what you're hearing.

As for the second point, you're (as usual) broad-brushing over the differences between social conservatives and fiscal conservatives. It's lazy thinking, similar to if I categorized all democrats as eco-terrorists just because the folks even crazier than Greenpeace vote democrat.

I fully agree, though, that the social conservatives have some dissonance between their agenda and a "small government" mentality. That said, from their perspective (which I don't personally endorse, but have at least taken some time to consider) they aren't actually changing the role of government in the slightest but rather changing/clarifying the scope of existing homicide laws.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
