Honest conservatism can be valuable. It can provide that counter-balance. But we don’t have honest conservatism today. We have a radical party that is dedicated in essence to three propositions: the financial liberation of the top 2 percent; the need to start more wars as the way to exercise moral authority in the world; and the peddling of oogedy-boogedy nonsense that’s a step or two removed from bloodletting and alchemy.
Actually, now that I think about it, it’s dedicated to two other propositions, too: the idea that Democrats aren’t Americans who have different and worse ideas but are in fact un-American, which leads to this politics as perpetual warfare business; and the idea that black people shouldn’t really have the right to vote in the same way white people do.
