    Exactly – and you’re far more likely to have your reforms not fall on deaf ears if you don’t alienate yourself. Why not show up on Fox and just talk sense rather than bash other conservatives? What difference does it really make other than that maybe other conservatives will start to listen…?Report

    not to unfairly caricature faux news, but i don’t think you get invited on all that much if you express certain opinions. How many conservatives will get invited on if they say we have to cut defense spending. I don’t think that many. Hell they still employ bill “consistently wrong” kristol.Report

    pat b is an odd duck. he says pretty directly racist things but mostly gets a free pass along with his steady gig on the “liberal” msnbc. do you think ron p would have been on faux if he hadn’t gathered a bunch of votes?Report

    I’m with Rod on this one. People are needed to tell the truth about mainstream conservatism as it exists. I value dissident conservatives precisely because they’re willing to speak against things like torture and American empire. The more people who are willing to do so, the better chance there is of change and the more difficult it is for others to manufacture a nonexistent unquestionable consensus around such issues.Report
