The "And" theory of conservatism is a political neologism coined in 2000s conservativism for the notion of holistic policy bringing together traditional conservativism with some aspects of liberalism (right-libertarianism), combining policies like low taxation with traditionally liberal solutions to issues such as poverty and global warming.{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Category handler|main}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}[citation needed] }}
