(Author’s note: this originated as an information page on my website. I decided to post it as an “essay” after receiving repeated inquiries from folks who had not seen the info page and wondered what exactly is a “traditional conservative?”)
Traditional Conservatives – some call us Old Right or Paleo-Conservatives – could be thought of as the closest intellectual, moral, and political living kin of America's Founding Fathers. That is not to say we yearn for the past; rather, that we understand history is much more than ancient facts or ideas. History is, in reality, a roadmap to the future.
