|Neocon warmonger Max Boot|
In the past I would have been indignant at such attacks and eager to assert my conservative credentials. I spent years writing for conservative publications such as the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Commentary magazine and working as a foreign policy adviser for three Republican presidential campaigns. Being conservative used to be central to my identity. But now, frankly, I don’t give a damn. I prefer to think of myself as a classical liberal, because “conservative” has become practically synonymous with “Trump lackey.”The neocons have been retweeting this Max Boot line:
I prefer to think of myself as a classical liberal, because “conservative” has become practically synonymous with “Trump lackey.”Yet, again libertarians and classical liberals are being outflanked because they are failing to aggressively attack the dumb socialist Trump. What do they see in this guy?
Yes, classical liberals should be against Trump. But the phony neocons, who will attempt to catch any wave if they think they can distort it, as classical liberals is disgusting.
The great historian Ralph Raico (1936-2016) in 2006 for the American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia explained what a classical liberal was:
"Classical liberalism" is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade.Got that Max? International peace based on free trade. Not your warmongering ways.
Stay the fuck away.
