And Just When You Thought They Couldn't Possibly Get Stupider...

Lo and behold. India badly needs a real conservative/libertarian type party. Otherwise, the left/center-left establishment gets away with too much crap. And no, BJP doesn't fit the bill. They are essentially social conservatives, being right-wing on only one issue (religion/culture). Elsewhere, they are rather Congress-like. Even on economic issues, the main undercurrent in BJP seems to favour socialism rather than free-market beliefs. As for Congress itself, a small but vocal part of it consists of leftists who found full-blown communism too arduous. The overwhelming part of Congress is, of course, filled with people who really don't care about such stuff- they just want their share.
