Free Trade: "Conservative"?

Here's the money quote from Pournelle.  It follows the sequence of plant relocation/unemployment/welfare payments:

...Is paying people not to work more Conservative than trying to keep their jobs – and manufacturing capabilities and potential here, bot dismantling it and leaving its former site to rust away – Conservative?

And is encouraging people not to work – at least making it easier and more possible – building a Conservative nation?

What, precisely, is being conserved here?
...--quoted at Vox

That's a question that Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, and other "conservative" RadioMouths have yet to answer.

Paul Ryan won't, of course.  He hasn't even ASKED that question, has he?
