A Big Lie

Rogue Operator has a post, “Debunking the Big Lie that American Conservatives Are Like Fascists”, which prompted me to establish this site.  A similar, widespread error is that, whilst conservatives are right-wing, to support progress is to be left-wing; it is possible, after all, to be a conservative communist.
Benjanin Disraeli, the Earl of Beaconsfield, said:  “I am a Conservative to preserve all that is good in our constitution, a Radical to remove all that is bad.  I seek to preserve property and to respect order, and I equally decry the appeal to the passions of the many or the prejudices of the few.”
