What happened?

Mr. Underwood wrote a while back that there are two foundational principles of our American government. He claims that conservatives are bent on preserving these principles. He states they are limited government and individual liberty. What about representative government, federalism and a separation of powers with checks and balances? What happened to the principles of equality and private property rights? Is he saying only two foundational principles of our government are worth preserving?

The letter writer lashes out at the left for the comparison of Nazism and conservatism. President Obama was accused by conservatives and the Tea Party for turning the United States into Nazi Germany. Unfortunately it looks like our political parties and ideologies are going to be constantly compared to Nazism, like it or not.
