List Rules Vote up the conservative values you think will be most important in 2016

Conservative values will be key for Republican voters in the 2016 primary. While many candidates claim they follow conservative tenets, some are more dedicated to conservative principles than others. It's important to know which values you find to be the most important so you can recognize them in your candidate of choice. The Republican party is not a monolithic entity, nor are its voters.

For example, do you favor limited government and reduced regulation? Or do you think a massive expansion of the government is necessary to secure the border and fight terrorism? Do you think climate change is man-made, but additional laws aren't needed to fight it? Or is it all a hoax by liberal scientists? Should taxes be lowered across the board, or only for the wealthiest job creators?

Vote up the traditional conservative values you find to be the most important in the upcoming election, and vote down those aspects of conservatism that you don't feel jibe with the movement anymore.
