To be a neoconservative, a new conservative is an oxymoron. Propagandists for central control have a long history starting with Alexander Hamilton and his proto-marxist progressive plan he named the "American System."
Daniel Webster, Henry Clay John Calhoun and the Whig Party were proponents of the American System.
Abraham Lincoln destroyed the Republic and created a Union with central control that killed more to further State worship than any in history.
In the 1984 while Rush Limbaugh was warning us of the "liberal" threat the Left Wing progressives and Marxists were busy infiltrating the Republican Party structures. Finally, FOX New hired William Krystal the son of the Godfather of Neoconservatism, Irving Krystal.
While Rush kept our attention focused on port, the progressives where boarding on the starboard.
Better to look at men's agendas than the label they take or are given.
Confusion reigns because or language fools too many.
