Who should we vote for in the upcoming presidential election?
We should vote for the one who appears to us to be the most conservative. Now, I can’t tell you who that is. But there’s no question that the conservatives of today are extremely more liberal than the liberals of 30 years ago. We have advanced so far beyond the borders of liberalism, that today we can afford to retreat many miles behind these boundaries and still remain in the forefront of liberalism. And therefore, today there’s no such thing as too much conservatism. You have to vote for conservative candidates on every level – on national, state and city levels.
That’s my opinion. By the way, nobody here has to agree with me – on anything. Only, I don’t have to agree with you either.
