Another facet? A different and better point of view?

Modest paraphrase from another self-proclaimed conservative:

Modern conservatism: Some 20 or 30 percent of us who never matured much past middle school, claiming to represent 99 percent, trying to win an election by a tenth of a percent so that some 4 percent of us can tell everybody else how to live, and where to put 100 percent of our money.

Where are the errors in that view?

How would Edmund Burke define ’em?  Michael OakeshottHenry HazlittFriedrich von HayekWilliam F. Buckley?  (All people who have been drummed out of the modern “conservative” movement in America in reality, even though many conservatives claim to love them.)

    How is it nonsensical? The statistics remain accurate, and the conclusion is more accurate than Morgan’s original statement.

    A paraphrase is a restatement of the meaning of a text or passage using other words…you have actually changed the original meaning of the passage and made it nonsensical.
