Am I a conservative?

Sullivan's ideal take on lowering the deficit is quite enticing:

Given my druthers, I'd means-test Medicare and social security and cut defense much more deeply than seems faintly possible given the grip of what that great conservative president, Dwight Eisenhower, called the "military-industrial complex." I'd also bring an ax to the corporate welfare that makes a mockery of capitalism, and aim for a VAT to increase revenues. My belief is that Medicare is far too generous to prosperous boomer retirees, while the healthcare system is far too cruel to the working poor
