What Is A Conservative?

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 21, 2018

I emailed this to the Erie Times News this morning. Let’s see if this one gets printed and how bad it is edited.

A phrase in a recent Erie Times-News letter promoting the Mueller circus stood out. Republicans are looking at Kasich, Flake and Sasse as a return to traditional conservative policies. There are no conservatives, traditional or otherwise. Who in government actively works for balanced budgets, honest (gold or silver standard) money, low taxes, non-interventionism, truly free markets (i.e. no federal reserve) and small government? No one.

Who has heard the terms True Liberal, Taft Conservative or Paleoconservative?

I can think of three presidential candidates that were these things and met an ugly Republican instigated political fate due precisely because of these beliefs-Robert Taft, Ron Paul and to a lesser extent Barry Goldwater.

Today’s conservatives believe the annual deficit should be less a trillion dollars, invading countries that never attacked US is OK and it might not be a good idea for our 9/11 financing friend Saudi Arabia to kill a Washington Post reporter. But US helping SA bomb Yemen school buses and wedding parties is acceptable foreign policy. More people in Yemen should work for WaPo.

That vibration you felt is Taft spinning.

Be seeing you
