These are good ideas, but if they are conservative ideas, they overlap comfortably with liberalism.

That's actually not supported.

Having less regulation actually empowers inequality, as those who have more are less bound by limits that are put in place to protect the lower classes.

Think payday loans. That's a practice of directly taking advantage of the poor. Government limits the interest allowed on those loans (which is still morbidly terrible). Without government, they could be even more predatory.
