The world needs more conservatism
I'd like to expand on this for clarification. I don't think the world *always* needs more conservatism. I'm not a card carrying conservative. I am a swing voter. For example, during the civil rights movement and abolition of slavery progressive ideas, social programs, and liberal thinking were needed. But right now, I think we need the opposite. We need to get back to basics, shrink the impact of the government, critically analyse and evaluate broken social programs, and exercise fiscal conservatism. However, at the same time we need progressive reform of long in place political and financial policy. The democrats were supposed to do this in the last 8 years. They didn't. It would seem no one can. In which case I think it's prudent to neuter these corrupt and ineffective institutions as much as possible.
