What does it mean to be Right of Center, Conservative, Ultra-Conservative?
You resist change simply for the sake of change. You are cautious and pro-status quo. You invoke a "good steward" mentality and are careful with management of resources. You tend to be pro-business, anti-tax and anti-regulation.
