Thank you for the post - this sounds like a great book!! I also went from being a liberal (and a Berkeley one at that!) to a conservative, because I realized that the way to achieve the best for everyone in a society are the principles of Conservatism. I posted it to Facebook.

Sorry, I don't get how someone can be a liberal and conservative at the same time. The two positions are diametrically opposed.

One can't be both for life and against life at the same time.

One can't be for more big govt and for smaller govt at the same time.

One can't be for more free enterprise capitalism and for taking over 1/7th of the economy through a govt take-over of the massive healthcare system at the same time.

One can't be for the wholesome Boy Scouts and for the unwholesome gay agenda at the same time.

One can't be for a democratic Israel and for the anti-democratic muslim palestinians at the same time.

One can't be for the 2nd Amendment and for gun control at the same time.

And that's only the start. I could go on and on for hours at a time. (but I'll have mercy on you all and stop there :) )

As I said, liberalism and conservatism are diametrically opposed philosophy's of life. They can't be joined.

Godspeed
