(Thought provoking – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno) http://www.theamericanconserva… It seems like every single person’s announcement that he is running for office is accompanied by the corresponding “he’s not a REAL Republican” because of X, Y, or Z.

http://www.nationalreview.com/… In The Conservative Mind, Russell Kirk observed that “conservatives inherit from [Edmund] Burke a talent for re-expressing their convictions to fit the time.” That is precisely what the conservatives of the late 1970s did.
