Agreed --- further, I'm convinced that's NOT what conservativism means today.
You've got to define conservativism relative to some particular personal
point-of-view, relative to some particular set of issues. I wonder what
self-identified conservatives would say conservativism means, and how much
agreement there would be about it even among those polled... does thinking that
way make me a "liberal?"
