Socialism on trial

“The 2008 campaign was never an honest choice between conservatism and liberalism. Really, it was just a referendum on George Bush . . . What Republicans want to do and need to do is put socialism on trial. Socialism has been a conservative talking point since the late 1880s. . . . As a populist anti-Washington party, we’ve always done best.”
Craig Shirley, Reagan biographer

Sounds a lot like my idea of “Libertarian Populism.”
