A good read in the National Post today.
However, we have a slight disagreement.
Traditional conservatism, if you read any of the classic writers (Hume, Burke et. al.) is about balance, stability and rational government. Conservatives should therefore be a “big tent” party; the libertarian wing pushes free markets to provide natural balance, social conservatives want more respect for traditional values and institutions to provide social stability, and Tories make the case for a government that acts cautiously, prudently and without the “feel good” policy motives of the left.
Mr. Kline obviously leans to the libertarian side, which is fine, but dismissing social conservatives and Red Tories from the equation is a mistake and will not revive the party’s fortunes long term.
