conservative conservationalists party

It has a nice ring doesn't it?

For me, one of the largest detractors of the GOP / conservative / republican party is it doesn't give enough "air time" or commitment to the environment. It should. It is very in line with the over-arching ethos of conservatives.

But don't take my word for it. Rather read a bit from my new hero, Roger Scruton.

Quote:
There is no political cause more amenable to the conservative vision than that of the environment. For it touches on the three foundational ideas of our movement: trans-generational loyalty, the priority of the local and the search for home. Conservatives resonate to Burke's view of society, as a partnership between the living, the unborn and the dead; they believe in civil association between neighbours rather than intervention by the state; and they accept that the most important thing the living can do is to settle down, to make a home for themselves, and to pass that home to their children.
