Who is a Bleeding Heart Conservative?

Anyone who believes conservative principles (e.g. limited government, civic duty, equal opportunity, accountability, meritocracy, etc; reference page 15) applied to personal and government policy paves the most productive and beneficial path for the individual and for society. That said, not all BHC perspectives necessarily adhere to staunch Republican Party lines; however a BHC finds her net policy opinions landing "right of center," and arrives at her political party affiliation accordingly.
