Are you a "Socialist" Conservative?

Since my roots in political engagement started in the new Liberty Movement way back in 2008, I've been privy to planning, starting, attending, watching or working with more liberty groups across Ohio and the country than almost anyone else I know. This was a truly amazing experience working with some great people over these last few years, and it taught me a lot about "the movement."

During this journey, one thing became crystal clear to me - all of these groups and people can be divided into two categories:

Either their top priority is getting rid of Barrack Obama or their top priority is shrinking the size, scope and power of the STATE

These two goals can obviously walk hand in hand, and often enough they do. However, it gets particularly interesting when people move away from sweeping platitudes and generalizations and focus on specific candidates or policies.

It seems all of the groups agree on the big ideas - government should have a smaller role in our lives and spend less money. Well, that all sounds fine and dandy until we try to put a specific policy into practice to carry out those ideas or rally to a specific candidate. At that point, everything can come to a screeching halt in the blink of an eye.

Enter my friend the "socialist conservative."
