Conservatism is me-too liberalism, with about a five-year lag. From John Wilder at wilderwealthywise.com:
“Restoration may be possible, in two days. By the book, Admiral.” – Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
We can finally predict the platform that George Bush’s kids will run on.
The United States is in a bad place. Monetarily. Philosophically. Morally. It even has bad manners.
Ultimately, the systems that led us to this situation won’t lead us out. Voting won’t save us. The Supreme Court won’t save us. Conservatism?
Conservatism© certainly won’t save us. It certainly didn’t save itself, and it becomes increasingly quaint as Conservatism 2021® quietly ignores nearly every position of Conservatism 1965™, if not right out taking the exact opposite position from even a decade ago.
Conservatism® has led us to where we are today. It’s just last year’s Leftist platform, but dressed up in a suit with a useful idiot explaining the Conservative Case for Sex Change Surgery for Toddlers. Oh, and this should be done even if the parents disagree. For the good of the child, you know, which they will all nod and agree, is a Conservative™ value.
