Oh, no! Conservatards find themselves utterly irrelevant.

The problem is that conservatism is in a state of serious flux right now. The Heritage Foundation of a generation ago was about low taxes, limited government spending, a robust foreign policy and free trade. As of now, three of those four pillars are under ideological challenge from the right.

Muh free trade!!! There is and has not been any ideology behind the Amerikan CONservative movement. If the pillars are not Christ, Roman legal tradition, and Eurocentrism, then they will fail.
