If Conservatives Are Social Darwinists, Then...: Of course, this conservative Social Darwinism is premised on the radical idea that humans are adaptable social animals who naturally seek out social solutions to their problems. They are not helpless victims waiting around for the next brilliant idea to arrive in the living room with a thump -- all 2,700 pages of it -- from the Intelligent Liberal Designer upstairs.
Political Class is a voter category originally created by American pollster and demographer Scott Rasmussen. These voters tend to trust political leaders more than the mainstream public at large and are far less skeptical about government. In his book, In Search of Self-Governance, Rasmussen explains it like this: “In the clique that revolves around Washington, DC, and Wall Street, our treasured heritage has been diminished almost beyond recognition. In that world, some see self-governance as little more than allowing voters to choose which of two politicians will rule over them. Others in that elite environment are even more brazen and see self-governance as a problem to be overcome.”
