Who are true conservatives, the dope-smoking homophobe Bill Buckley, the late druggie Andy Breitbart, George “Cubs Win!” Will, Ron “Goldbug” Paul, Billy the son of a Trotskyist Kristol, Chuck “Grecian Formula” Krauthammer… More importantly, who among the current nutbag of 2016 GOP hopefuls can be called at least partially a true conservative.
For example, what part of libertarianism makes a True Conservative and what part of conservatism makes a True Libertarian. How minimal are their ideals of governance based on a minimal state and what diminishes their “truth” on that basis – what is the limit of “statism” if you have to choose between Hayek or Mr. Hilter.
C’mon all you RWNJ lurkers – make clear your ideological theories because frankly until you whip them out they all do appear flaccid in the face of Tom Cole’s true conservatism.
“Paul Ryan has played a major role in advancing the conservative cause and creating the Republican House majority. His critics are not true conservatives. They are radical populists who neither understand nor accept the institutions, procedures and traditions that are the basis of constitutional governance.” —– Senator Tom Cole (R-OK)
The Shroud of Truism, a tissue on the bedstand of true conservatism (sans trickle-down lotion)
