So, basically anyone who isn't some 17th Century Puritan or wants a return to medieval feudalism isn't a "real conservative", I take it?
Also, the neocons like Reagan were only able to get as far as they did by riding the coattails of the Religious Right, which got its start as the pendulum swinging back against the New Left of the 1960's and 1970's.
Ironically, the neocons couldn't have gained power without the backing of the fundies in the early 80's but by the 90's and 2000's, the Religious Right couldn't have any actual influence without the neocons propping them up.
