    That implies you desire a strong liberal opposition.

    Liberalism and conservatism are worse than pointless because countries that occupy military and economic superpower positions have a very limited number of viable foreign and domestic policy strategies available to them; generally speaking, what a superpower must do to survive and thrive is 'obvious' and is usually not wholly consistent with either liberal or conservative principle, historically or in contemporary times. The ideologies exist more for the sake of fulfilling basic psychological needs of adherents than enabling the government to make good military and economic decisions.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    No, Liberalism (see also:Socialism, communism, Marxism, etc.) needs to be thrown in the dungheap of colossial failures.

    Okay. So you do desire a conservative hegemony. But you want your political opponents to make room for you?

    Damned right! Only Conservatism has the correct answers to the problems we face as a nation. Because each time Liberals have been in power, there has been nothing but failure after failure!

    I doubt you value self-consistency, but if there is nothing unusual about wishing your political opposition didn't exist, then there is no reason to sensationalize the wish of liberals their opposition didn't exist.

    I can't decide if you don't care if you are hypocritical, or if you really don't notice, or if you have noticed but are playing dumb in the hope nobody else will notice.

    He never once said that, but YOU are the one that said you desire a conservative hegemony.
