The American Conservative asks the question and answers “Success!… The conservative critique of the liberal welfare-warfare state was so powerful that special interests (such as those that President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex) and opportunistic politicians began to adopt the label and offer fame, money, and power to conservatives who would admit them to the fellowship.”
The American Conservative magazine was founded in 2002 by Pat Buchanan, Scott McConnell, and Taki Theodoracopulos, in response to the distinctly un-conservative policies of the Bush administration (the Iraq war, chief among them). The goal was to provide an intellectual home for serious, independent-minded conservatives.
The American Conservative & Richardcyoung.com are on the same team with a common cause of minding our own business in terms of military adventurism and recapturing the constitutional federal republic spirit intended by our Founders.
