Despite his slandering of conservatism, Keynes's views were, in fact, very conservative. While it might not be as conservative as anti-government Monetarism, Keynesian thought did share similar ideas about the free market. Instead of eradicating government involvement, Keynes thought that the government's sole purpose would be to stimulate the market. He advocated the use of government, but only for stimulation.
"If your party can run the nation for eight years, and then have a national convention and not invite Bush (your President), Cheney, Rumsfeldt, Colin Powell, Karl Rove or Tom Delaney, you're not a political movement. You're the witness protection program." Good point, Bill.
