What should a conservative stand for?

I would think that the most important political position of an American conservative should be pro-capitalism.

He should believe in the absolute protection of private property, freedom of association, and commerce and every right so rationally derived.

Liberty should be his banner in the political war, capitalism his aim, and government his nemesis.

He should seek to constrain and restrain the state and never forget that government corrupts and should never be used to further his ends, because when government is unleashed it will devour liberty first.
