The defining trait of conservatives used to be greed. They'd prefer to call it "thrift" but it was greed. They wanted to keep all the $.
"Not with my tax money, you don't!" As if they did all the work and paid all the taxes.
But these days it's cruelty.
They're not happy unless they've done something to make someone suffer.
They seem to think it's their divine mission.
They're still greedy. But cruelty comes first and they're willing to waste money to punish the weak, poor, and unfortunate.
