  • I think conservatism has been co-opted by social conservatives/neo-cons. I would consider myself a fiscal conservative, I don't like deficits. However, I am socially liberal. I'm sort of libertarian in general.

    I would say Buchanan is definitely a fiscal conservative (and a size-of-government conservative) with some oddball social conservatism thrown in just for fun.

    It sort of scares me when I agree with Pat because I disagree with about everything else he says. That's the joy of our country. I don't have to get upset when someone general dislike says something I agree with. On that issue we agree and we can fight it out on the other things.

    I think the current pack of folks that control the Republican party and the spineless bastarts in the Democratic party have lowered social discourse to dangerous levels. No one wants to hear an opposing view.

    As such language is being distorted. Conservative is an overly broad description, as is liberal and such.

    Too bad most people can stand a decently long description. It has to fit in a 5 second sound bite nowadays it seems.
