I remember having an argument with the PC candidate in the early 1980s in Alberta. He claimed that Mr. Lougheed was a conservative candidate. I pointed out that Mr. Lougheed increased the per-capita civil servants in Canada from the lowest province to highest in his tenure.

Notice how Mr. Trump has not reduced welfare payments, something many conservatives would like.

Trouble is that parties say they are ideological, but they are looking for votes--which takes them from their ideology. Second trouble is that too many voters still base their vote on an ideology that really isn't there.
