But Burke is the real problem in today's "conservative" world.
I classify Palin, Hannity, Coulter, Rush etc as "Confused Conservatives" for exactly this reason. They are TRUE (Paleo)Conservatives on everything except foreign policy, and that is because of the Neo-CON infiltration of the Marxists into the GOP in the 1970's.
Pat Buchanan = Lockean with a bit of a social Burkean twist (but he's old, so that explains a lot).
Confused Conservatives = Lockean with a Neo-CON foreign policy view.
Santorum = Hobbesian couching his views through Burke / Kirk.
Gingrich = loud-mouthed idiot Big Business Progressive pretending to be a "conservative." O'Reilly falls into this camp.
Romney = Chameleon.
I may be a vegetarian, but I'll defend to the death my right to eat meat!
