Advice to Right-Wing Bloggers

TC asks where the left-wing bloggers went, and wonders if the sphere promotes moderation. He also sees a few ways things can go: more moderation, or less. He seems to favor the former. Here's one option he proposes:
Hold strongly to a pure free market line, but not much consider the toughest issues, starting with Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and finishing with the inability of government to precommit to a lot of policies which might work as rules but never can be rules. There are plenty of easy issues to focus on, starting with farm policy and free trade and on those the market-oriented point of view is a slam dunk.

That's free-market conservatism I can believe in. There are sosme areas where freer markets are not necessarily a win-win proposition.
