15. I doubt he is anything quite so interesting, simply a Conservative as advertised
That is the problem with conservatives in the party, they bring in all that Reagan and police state baggage with them and claim since it came in the party with THEM it is a valid view all of a sudden of the party.
Whose to say they're wrong? If we applaud the entrance of the Liebermans and Reaganites into the party, are they then not valid members with their views added to the party with them?
What will be really interesting is when we start inviting the Birchers as well and have to adopt their ideas as valid to go along with the trickle down economics and police state authoritarian worship, can't wait for them to join the ranks of the Reaganites in our party and add even more of these "good" right wing ideals.
I personally think we should have kept the party liberal and sewn shut the giant gaping hole in the tent that let these ideals replace our own, but I was not consulted when the Kochs helped form the DLC and PPI think tank to engineer our new improved ideology and so was told along with everybody else, "accept it 'cause what other party are you going to vote for".
Is it too late for a needle and thread now? Probably.
