I found this post interesting as the only blogs I regularly read written by conservatives are ones like yours - not normally political. And my perspective has always been that the worst abuses of (extra)-constitutional authority come from the right wing. Suspension of Habeus Corpus. Torture. Legislating people's private (sexual) lives. Creating a national drinking age - clearly infringing on areas of state responsibility - by abusing the power of the purse and tying it to highway funding. That sort of thing.

I also found a certain amount of irony in the statement "I've considered myself a small-government, social conservative for decades," since again, from my perspective, social conservative means larger government interference in private affairs, kind of the opposite of small government.

Anyway, interesting to see a glimpse of the other side from someone whose opinion and analysis I've come to respect.
