Uhhhhh, Senator Hatrack's messed up post editing skills combined my post and his. And I can't bitch about it because I accidentally butchered one of his when I THOUGHT I was replying instead.

This part BELOW is from the Senator:

The part about my Italian gramps losing his businesses in Rapino at gunpoint while a wealthy landowner from Laquila stood grinning is my post.
The guys with the guns were not socialists. All my gramps ever talked about were "Il Duce and his fascists" and how they turned Italy into an armed camp.

Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't following the thought process.

THAT IS BULLSHIT!
As a conservative I have NEVER been concerned or even noticed what class a person is supposedly a member of. Separating people into a class is a Marxist idea. An idea that the left of today has now broaden into identity politics. The greatness of capitalism is that a whatever person's financial situation is that it can go up or down. There is no class hierarchy in conservatism. In the 50 plus years that I have been active in conservatism I have NEVER seen anyone put in a class!

Whaddya mean, the leading light in the White House is all about putting people in classes.
Sorry Hatrack but as Rick said, equality is horizontal.
The Right isn't concerned about anything egalitarian and never has been.

They don't even want everyone to vote!

Pres. Trump is not what conservatism is. He has done somethings that are conservative but DO NOT confuse nor consider him to be a conservative.

No, conservatism is not egalitarian. Here is the definition of egalitarian.
"Affirming, promoting, or characterized by belief in equal political, economic, social, and civil rights for all people."
The inclusion of equal economic rights is why conservatism is not egalitarian. Equal economic rights is to make everyone's economic situation the same. That is socialistic. It is not the job or the responsibility of our government to level the economic playing field. While a lot of Paul Weyrich has done is conservative his desire to not let everyone vote is not. If people do not have the right to vote then we do not have a government that has the consent of the governed. The consent of the governed is one of the key elements of conservatism. It is one of the reasons our American Revolution was fought. The idea of taxation without representation is not a government that has the consent of the governed. It is unfortunate it took solong to extend the franchise to everyone. But our country is and always will be a work in progress.

Unfortunately that is true! Being a Republican is not the same thing as being a conservative. I am a Republican for the lack of a better alternative. That there will be an alternative to the Republican Party is very doubtful considering our "two party" system. The two parties are not the Democrats or the Republicans they are the Challengers and the Incumbents. But whenever a Challenger Party wins they become a member of the Incumbents' Party.
