“Apparently Rand Paul acolytes equate conservativism with libertinism. The two are not the same.”
Apparently some “conservatives” conflate “liberty” with “authoritarian big government”.
It’s a shame.
Libertarians want to return to roughly 1870 A.D. type laws, which is about as “conservative” as it gets.
Dopertarians seem unaware that abortion, adultery, and pretty much all of their sexual immorality was strictly regulated in 1870. History is not their forte.

That's "A.D. 1870." Sorry pet peeve of mine. Like saying "loose" when one means "lose."

No queer marriage, no abortion, school prayer, must be 21 to vote, no women voting, women couldn’t own property, unrestricted gun ownership.
That 1870? COOL!

True, very true. One side wants the government to pay for everything or almost everything, the other wants to spy in your bedroom.

I'd be happy with the repeal of the popular election of Senators and the income tax but you made a good point.

Right now I would settle for 1970 laws... but 1912 would be better.
