Jindal is my governor. It pains me when people call him a Conservative. The guy got out of college and went straight into government.
Yes he can parrot Conservative jargon effortlessly. But his governing record is one of a RINO.
Jindal like many other pseudo Conservatives have not internalized a deep belief in limited government.
Jindal's first love is the "good" the State (meaning government at any level) can accomplish.
Reagan truly viewed government as a necessary "evil." You will NEVER get Jindal to call government a necessary evil.
Sarah is like Reagan in viewing government as a dangerous leviathan.
I suspect that a few minorities find that they can acquire power and wealth by being novelty acts - running as Republicans. They don’t really have any principles or stand for anything. But they have found that the Republicans are so desperate for a token minority that they can get themselves elected or appointed to high office fairly easily. Jindal. Colin Powell. Rubio. A few others come to mind. The mask comes off eventually and they show us they are more loyal to race than to conservative principles.
Republicans are nearly as eager to prove they are not racist by voting for a person of color as the Democrats are. And this is what we get.
It’s a shame Thomas Sowell never ran for office. I have no doubt of his conservative principles.
If president Reagan was for smaller government why did he allow government spending to TRIPLE during his 8 years?
