look up any word, like yeet:
A mix of Conservativism and Classical Liberalism. Internationalist in nature, neo-conservatism is very concerned with political freedom, democracy, human rights, and economic freedom, and believes that these ideas are universally applicable. Pro-American, pro-Israeli, and pro-Taiwanese.

Most prominant neo-conservatives were liberals who came to change their opinion on economics.

Generally identified with the philosophy of Irving and Bill Kristol, Jeane Kirpatrick, Max Boot, Paul Wolfowitz, Natan Sharansky, Charles Krautheimer, James Woolsey, and Bill Bennett.

Possibly the closest to the political philosophy of George W. Bush.
Neo-conservatives love John Stuart Mill
by me - again March 30, 2006
A term used chiefly by liberals of the present day to describe conservatives in power. The word has a highly negative connotation due to the fact that it is used by liberals who were badly burned twice in a row in the '00 and '04 elections.
Damn neo cons, they're in power and all I can do is sit and whine!
