I keep reading on righty blogs about the need for a “new conservatism,” a revival of something or other I suppose, but the writers don’t seem to know exactly what.  Well, I think the need is to go deeper into the past, rather than trying to create some new-fangled conservative ideal — boy if that’s not an oxymoron right there. 

Maybe after the election I’ll explore this in more detail.  But just go back and look at some of my earliest posts to see what I mean, or go to Best of the Brits, one of the websites linked here, to get a feel for what I’m talking about.  The timeless principles are always there, sort of waiting for us to find them again.
