Take it far enough back and I have spent a fair piece of time with honest conservatives – a contradiction in terms for today’s Republicans – I participated in a few political actions with conservative friends who’d supported my own activities confronting American racism and more. Including being a founding member of the Young Republicans chapter in my home town BITD.

Cycle back to the 21st Century and ask anyone who says they’re a “traditional American conservative” if they’re a registered Republican. If they say, “yes” – then they spend more than tolerable time in their political life playing at “Let’s pretend I’m not a hypocrite!”

‘Nuff said.
