This is the political battle.
A couple of election cycles ago, the Democrats had an internal war between what are laughably termed "centrist" Democrats and progressive Democrats. In truth, it was nothing more than a war between some who are extreme and some who are really extreme. Well, as you know, the really extreme won — and from that point forward, they have been all in with their communist agenda.
Shifting over to the Republicans, the same dynamic is going on right now — competing camps fighting over the right to direct the ship, each laying claim to the label of "conservative."
Part of the problem on the so-called Right is the word "conservative." Like many things today, it's a very elastic term, meaning different things to different people. Some associate it with simply not having the government interfere with personal choices, a kind of personal-freedom platform.
Matt Schlapp is chairman of the American Conservative Union — the group that sponsors CPAC. His ACU and CPAC even incorporate the word "conservative" into their titles. He's a practicing Catholic and graduated from Notre Dame in 1990.
He's also a big deal in Republican establishment circles, having worked in the Bush White House as well as having deep ties to Donald Trump. For some, those connections make him conservative.
But is that all there is to conservatism — just the government-needs-to-leave-me-alone philosophy? Well, this is where, as the saying goes, the rubber hits the road.
