From my column today:
If socialism is state-sponsored compassion, what is conservatism? In the binary political world, the default is that a small-government mindset is cruel. This political duality was turned on its ear by George W. Bush’s campaigning and governing as a “compassionate conservative.” A compassionate conservative, it turns out, buys into the liberal’s criticism. Compassion meant the government “helping”. Compassion meant giving the American taxpayer’s money to the needy all over the world. Compassion meant going into debt in order to feel good.×

The premise stinks to high heaven.
There is much more, I hope you’ll go read it and come back and comment here. I think that compassion is misused and abused by the liberals. Conservatism is compassionate. By definition.
