I was raised as a religious conservative.
As time went on I became less religious and less NeoConservative, as I felt Zionism had polluted most of American politics and religion. I became a conspiracy theorist after I got out of the army.
I temporarily joined the Alt Right before it got infiltrated by racists and became the Alt Reich. In those days it came off as a constitutionalist libertarian insurgency against NeoCons, that a group of conservatives decided to break away from the corrupt, narcissistic, globalist corporatism, imperialism, pro torture, Israel and banks first, police state mentality of the GOP.
right now, I guess I would be a Moderate Libertarian-esque Independent, but who's conservative sympathies slightly outweigh my liberal ones. At the same time, though, I have a different definition of what I think conservatism should be. A lot of modern conservatives don't realize that they are Radical Statists, and are just as socialist and big gov as the left. So I don't get along with modern day conservatives, even though they think they are small government and christian. To me the proper definition of a conservative would be somewhere between a classical liberal, a constitutionalist libertarian, and a paleo conservative that hasn't had his politics and religion warped by the CIA, big gov corporations, and Zionism, and international banks. These true conservatives, these classical liberals are quite rare.
As time goes along, and as a country becomes more corrupt, authoritarian, and argueably a certain kind of socialist, their choices for government get narrowed down to either communism or fascism. They have the same ultimate results, they just have a different order of what groups of people they're going to kill.
