It is not classical conservatism in its real form that is the problem on the right-wing or in the Republican Party. That is real real Conservatism in a real political sense, not in a cultural sense. Which is how conservatism tends to be looked at in America to go along with small government economic views. And a military first foreign policy from Neoconservatives and an isolationist wing when it comes to foreign policy. From the Pat Buchanan wing on the far-right.
Conservatism in its real Barry Goldwater of big government out of my wallets and bedrooms conservatism, strong, but limited defense and a foreign policy that is not about policing the world, but being the leader in the world which is different, that real Goldwater/Reagan conservatism is in good shape in America whether it is back in 2004, or today as far as what Americans want and expect government to do for them.
