Counterintuitive Truth For Conservatives

Vox Day, quoted in the LA Times Blog, Political Muscle, defining the nature of the conservative argument. I could not agree more.

“The counterintuitive truth for conservatives is that principle is the ultimate pragmatism. No sports team has ever won a game by committing to move the ball in the direction of the goal that it is defending. Conservatives cannot win moderates to their cause by becoming moderate, they can only win them over by demonstrating confidence in the superiority of their ideas, principles and ideals.”
