On that, we'll have to agree to disagree ;)

But I do understand where you are coming from ... the factor is there. Just how much it pulls v. the others ... I feel the others are stronger.

They when the same way as the divine right of Kings.
Yes liberal conservatism is an oxymoron, however in England it is the political ideology of classical conservatism & free market economics.

So Tequila are you a liberal conservative or a conservative liberal?
The Tory's & the Lib Dem's can't make there mind up if there conservative, liberal, liberal conservative or conservative liberal!
As my guess is that your conservative liberal ex Tory whos pissed off with the EU lovers. I myself am a social liberal

No, you just seem to think the only good conservative is either a closet leftist or a dead one...

And when did jacobvirgil ever say such a thing; particularly that the only good conservative was a dead one?

There you go guessing what other people think. That is a radio talk show ploy arguing both sides.
It is a lame retorical method when people can answer you and tell you what they think.
a classical conservative defends the rights of the aristocracy modern conservatives
seem to be populists and freemarketeers. So maybe all the real conservatives are dead.
the context of my statement was yes someone could say they are a liberal and a conservative.
but only if conservative has changed in meaning in a drastic way.
I think that is has.
maybe you could have your mom read what I say and explain it to you.
and oh yeah you are an NT troll or maybe . . .
a Fanboy holy cow your a fox news fanboy :lol: .

The ideology of conservatism is to preserve and support traditional institutions via maintenance.
Historical it was the aristocracy may be it still is with the neo-aristocracy per se.
When theres no aristocracy, conservatives have to look to other traditional institutions to protect.

To me, classical conservatism was small federal government. That went out the window when religious groups decided the Republican party was the better vehicle for anti-abortion legislation, which had to be dealt with on a broader level once the Surpreme Court weighed in. Federal legislation is not small federal government.

There are many older Republican women who still like to say that the Republican party would be perfect if only it would get out of their uteruses.

All well documented by political historians, I believe.

The Catholic Church was firmly Democrat because of the social justice issues until abortion became a hot issue. That was in the 70's. I remember the turn; I saw it happen.

If the child in the womb is a person, then we are dealing with murder everytime an abortion takes place (or attempted murder if it is botched).

Again though, it depends on whether or not you consider the child in the womb to be a person.

Something you should pay attention to is the fact that historians particularly the closer you get to the present, the more biased they tend to act. Political historians especially.

That's one of the few areas I agree with the Catholic Church on, being pro-life.

I'm not going to debate abortion. I made a note of the effect the one issue has had on the political parties and their ideology. This was a major step for the Republican party, turning away from having little interest in legislating moral issues, to taking one on full bore. It was the first in a sea change approach to government. We don't need to debate the issue itself at all to acknowledge how it started to change the political parties.

My wife is one, possibly the only one. Of course, she calls herself a "monarchist".
