Conservative? Depends on what you mean.

A democrat politician called me today about a story we didn’t publish. It was old and not newsworthy but another newspaper had.

Near the end he called me a “Conservative.” I said:

“Not in the least. I’m liberal. most who call themselves liberal nowadays are reactionary:
–Progressive in the worst sense of the term,
–Clinging to the hope larger centralized government will work when it never has,
–Opposed to commercial markets that have brought a better quality of life to more people than their socialist programs ever have.
“No, I’m the liberal. You just call yourself one.”

The heck with RINOs and DINOs … It’s LINOs who need to get the message.
