What is conservatism?

Post by mentor »

To me, conservatism is the philosophy of doing whatever it takes to keep the rich in control and to enhance their power. Richard Viguerie presented a different view on today's show when he accused the Bush administration of "running to the left". I truly found Richard Viguerie to be a frightening man who wants us to go back to the stone age philosophically. I am confident that he is wrong in his belief that Bush's approval would improve to 50% if he would just walk the walk of the ultra right. I think that segment of the base is tapped out because they are already behind Bush 100%. Bush's support should only get smaller, not bigger. I'm all for Viguerie pulling his support for this administration, even if I do not agree with his reasoning.

He does seem more extreme than most conservatives.
