Conservatives were wrong to oppose the Founders' going to war to achieve independence from the King.

 

Conservatives were wrong to oppose ending Prohibition.

 

Conservatives were wrong to oppose regulating the Wall Street firms.

There can be only two reasons they're always wrong: Some conservatives are evil, and the others are stupid enough to fall for the lies and bigotry of conservative leaders.

 

Does any conservative have an intelligent hope of deserving more than contempt? Only if he stops being one.

 

Of course, conservatives don't agree with this. But they didn't agree with decent people about slavery, either.

 

History shows that what they agree with is far likelier to be false than true.
