Where Has Traditional American Conservatism Gone?   1 comment

Ten years ago I posted the question, “Where Has American Conservatism Gone?” I miss people like William F. Buckley and I can’t help but wonder how he might articulate his thoughts on our current president. — kenne (Note: The posting includes a short video of a conversation Buckley had with Norm Chomsky. Chomsky joined the University of Arizona faculty last fall, is a laureate professor in the Department of Linguistics in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.)

William F. Buckley II blog

Too bad conservative America doesn’t have minds like that of William F. Buckley. Buckley was creative and presented ideas in debating issues, rather than just disagreeing. Buckley was first an intellectual and second a conservative. Although I disagreed with most of his positions (agreement was more alone liberterian lines) he was always ready to debate the issues, rather that concluding “I’m right and you are wrong,” end of discussion!
