I see the framing that way, but I don't think it's describing real preference differences in a useful way. If conservatives were pro-BLM, anti-IP, anti-drug, for less-restrictive immigration policy, etc., they could plausibly be described as supporting "small gov't" on principle, and it would make sense (though there would still be issues, IMO). But given that they're on the "big gov't" side of all of those issues, it sounds like opposition to opportunity-enhancing policy and consumer/worker/environmental protection is just euphemistically described as "small gov't" principles because it polls better. See above. Well, what we see is conservatives express devotion to real-world authority and willingness to rebel against hypothetical and impossible authority. Again, I disagree. Corporations are collectives. I really think the authority vs. anarchy fears are the best descriptor.
