The Common Denominator of Right Wing Policy: Lost Lives 
Looking back at my research and writing on conservative special interest-driven policies, a common denominator emerges – without exception.  Regardless of the area (opposing reform of our gun markets while expanding public exposure to weaponry; opposing healthcare reform; continued support for financial deregulation and supply-side tax policies; discriminatory treatment of the LGBT community; and another to be included in this article, science denial regarding global warming), all are continuing to be pursued despite the well-documented, and often substantial, loss of American lives.  And in some cases, e.g., our gun market and global warming, the loss of life extends beyond our borders.
