I don't know
Since the new ideas never work...ie, they never do what they're advertised to do, but perhaps other goals are in play here, then the old ideas, since there was nothing wrong with them, are valid.
Letting people keep their own money. What a quaint idea. The new idea is to grab everything and run. That's been working well, hasn't it?
Smaller government. How quaint, doing something the Founding Fathers wanted. The new idea of never having the people do for themselves what the government can do at ten times the cost has been working well to keep politicians employed.
Heck, even his idea of de-criminalizing heroin has been around for a long time, too.
He said not one thing to disagree with, unlike that Paul guy.
A real conservative has a distinct religious CHRISTIAN component to their political beliefs. They use that, instead of reason, as the basis of their political ideology.
Ask a real libertarian where rights come from, and you'll get a dissertation on how "rights" are a concept in defining the acceptable parameters of interpersonal relations and what limits government should have in them.
A real conservative says "rights come from God" and that's the end of that.
A liberal/socialist/fascist/communist/Democrat/statist says a man's rights exist only insofar as they serve the good of the state.

Sorry, I don't agree that Bachmann, Palin or Cain fit that discription. They are simply strong conservatives who believe in upholding the constitution. They sure don't believe in government control. Palin's husband is a union guy, I believe.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
