President Ronald Reagan Explains what True Conservatism Is

Years ago, before becoming President of the United States, President Ronald Reagan sat down with 60 Minutes to discuss his view on politics. During the conversation the interviewer wondered, rather obsequiously, at how conservatives had come to identify themselves as “libertarian.” Reagan’s response was perfect, rightly dissecting how modern liberals had embraced fascism and it was conservatives who had become the true defenders of individual liberty and economic freedom.

Share this one out far and wide. Conservatives must always be the defenders of limited government, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. If conservatives stop defending these principles… then the liberals will have won. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
