Why is that if Conservatism is superior to Liberalism, Conservatives can't nominate a Conservative candidate for President? This time it's looking like Romney, the most Liberal among the GOP candidates, is going to win. Last time it was McCain, again, the most Liberal among the GOP running.
Why is Conservatism so unappealing to the voting population that the right won't put up a solid Conservative to run for President?
The left put up their most Liberal candidate and not only did he win his party's nomination, he won the White House.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
