Beware the Standard Conservative


  • perry77 5 years ago

    I agree with the above article. Adding to this conservative view. I find it interesting that the very conservatives who are now touting that it was there idea to stop earmarks are the same conservatives that did not hear Our President say that very thing in his State of The Union Address. Telling the Congress to keep thier spicial interest earmarks out of the the Health bill. A word of conservative advice ignored by Republicans across the board. Good article

    I agree with you in regard to the section about socialized medicine and the VA, but would argue that the "standard" conservative would much rather keep government out of social issues. I also feel that the "standard" conservative would prefer a citizenry able to protect themselves, but making "protection" a state issue is better than opening it to the federal government.

    The Standard Conservative is very much an activist when it comes to social issues and tends to take up positions that bring more government power and control into the equation.

    As to your point about protection: support an armed citizenry first and an armed State second. In a country that's supposed to be run and controlled by the People, an armed citizenry should at LEAST be equal in standing to an armed State.
