Maybe the younger members of this forum would not realize this, but looking back to the 1950 - 1970's era and examining conservatives like President Richard Nixon and William F. Buckley I get the impression that the concept of what a conservative is today is very different from back then. The more active "conservative" of today appears to be more of a Right Wing Libertarian. I get this impression from things like the anti-U.S. Government language used by so many modern conservatives. Anti-government messages are consistent with what has been called in the past anarcho-capitalism (a concept which is not entirely one of anarchy because the government is still present but limited to the role of a protector of property rights. So, what do you think? Is being a Right Wing Libertarian/Anarcho-Capitalist the way to go forward or would the United States be better off with the more traditional William F. Buckley conservatism?
