Here, paradoxically hints that we should choose an option which is opposite of what the conservatives appeal, i.e. something which is not in line with the Jeffersonian ideal of limited government.

Therefore, we can eliminate A, B and D. Between C and E, C suggests that the conservatives call for a limitation on an issue, which becomes an individual's opinion and not a governmental restriction. This is not exactly what we are looking for. We should look out for the option which evinces increased governmental role (opposite to Jeffersonian ideal). Hence, E is the correct choice.
