High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 29, 1976, High Point, North Carolina 4e High Point Enterprise wednesday september 29, 1976 Capitol letter democratic candidates look for new philosophy Side glances by Gill Fox by Robert b. Cullen associated press writer Raleigh a it. Gov. Jim Hunt has never needed to stick a wet Finger in the air to Tell which Way the political wind was blowing. So when Hunt tried to set a theme of limited expectations for his gubernatorial Campaign last week it signalled something. Like dozens of other Young democratic candidates around the country Hunt is searching for something searching for a new political philosophy that will carry the democratic party through the next generation. Thus far the politicians have discovered Only bits and pieces of the new framework they Are seeking. The major pieces remain to be found they know that the people have lost their Fiath in the be Beneficence of government. They do not feel that creating a a a program that entails major expenditures and the establishment of a bureaucracy will solve As Many problems As it creates. There is a feeling that government is by nature Bob Cullen wasteful bloated and ineffective. This is not dissimilar to the things that conservative republicans have been saying Ever since Franklin d. Roosevelt introduced a the new Deal. Some have called the new feeling there Are conservative re publicans like North Carolina s sen. Jesse Helms who feel that their faction will be the beneficiary of the new mood in the populace. But thus far the republicans do not appear to have loved what sen. Robert Dole described As their major problem when he stopped in Salisbury several weeks ago. The gop Dole said is still perceived by most americans As the party which wants to help the big Guy keep the Little Guy from getting his fair share. As Long As there Are More Little Guys than big Guys in the electorate conservatives As the term is used today will have difficulty in establishing themselves As a majority party. Some democrats have also picked up on Neo conservatism and with smattering of Success. One of the Best examples is California s Young governor Edmund Brownjr. Browne a Neo conservatism however seems largely a matter of style. He is personally ascetic and californians were delighted when he spurned the lavish new executive mansion built by Ronald Reagon and chose to live in a Small apartment. They applauded some of his other Well publicized efforts to remove a bit of the splendor from government operations. Browne a administration has also demonstrated a substantive principle that would Likely be part of any mature neoconservative democratic philos spy. He has scrupulously paid attention to the demands of minorities for Equality in government hiring. But As Brown showed in several interviews during his Brief fling As a presidential candidate he has not come up with a Way to apply his neoconservative style to the mundane problems that confront one who would govern. Brown is not alone. No politician has yet come Forward with a Well conceived plan that integrates the desire for a lean unobtrusive government with the desire to solve social problems that plague the country. Hunt has yet to do so As his statement last week indicated. His approach thus far this year has been to limit himself and his vision to the areas he feels Are politically Saleable and pragmatic Reading reshuffling the utilities regulation Structure and a crackdown on crime.
