Right fringe notices that Republicans are not conservative

· long story short

Kevin Tuma hates FDR and Lincoln, favoring Goldwater and Reagan. What’s interesting about this article is that he voices the “dirty little secret” of the Republican party. It is not now and has never been a conservative party, especially not in the sense of small-government conservatism.
If you ask me, the Democrats are a fundamentally conservative party (a result of 60 years in power). The Republicans are an odd alliance of libertarian creative thinking, monied-elite power, traditional scold-moralistic social family conservatism, and militarists.
