Conservatism 101 For Those Not Paying Attention…

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( You and I are politically well informed. But there are many Americans like my family who do not follow politics as closely as we do. Their political views are shaped by liberal media bias hit pieces, spin and sound bites.

99.9 % of my family are democrats because Marcus family traditional taught us the democrats are “for the little guy”. Republicans are “rich white racists”. Liberal media and the Democratic Party jointly support and promote this silly simple lie which still wins the democrats 95% of the black vote.

Despite me, the eldest of his five children being a black conservative tea party Republican, my 84 year old dad’s negative view of Republicans remains steadfast. Dad tolerates my baffling political views because he loves me.

However, I would not be surprised if my family scheduled an intervention. A black van pulls up, a hood is thrown over my head and I’m carted off to an undisclosed location. I am denied food, water, bathroom privileges and subjected to video of Obama speeches 24/7 until I break.

It occurred to me that my family like many Americans are probably clueless regarding the truth of what it means to be a liberal and a conservative. Ironically, the majority of my family lives extremely responsible “conservative” lives. They go to work every day, serve their communities, attend church and raise their kids. And yet, the liberal media has lead them to believe the term “conservative” equals evil white racist.

So, I would like to offer my family and others a little “Conservatism 101”. For fun, let’s call it “Conservatism for Dummies”.

Let us begin with a parable.

Tale of Two Dads- School is Difficult and Little Johnny Wishes to Stay Home.

Little Johnny says, “Dad I don’t want to go to school. The kids are mean and the work is too hard!”

Liberal Dad replies, “I know just how you feel son. School was no picnic for me either. Stay home today”.

Conservative Dad replies, “Boy, you had better get your butt out of that bed and get ready for school. I’ll talk to the principal and your teachers to work out any problems. An education is vital to your future success and happiness. I’m forcing you to go to school because I love you!”

I am not suggesting Liberal Dad does not love his child. But Liberal Dad’s attempt to be his child’s friend rather than a responsible parent is a spineless choice all about making himself feel good.

Patently liberal. Most liberal thinking and choices are about making themselves feel good as opposed to truly helping the people they claim to feel great compassion towards.

Conservative Dad’s reply was that, not of a friend, but a responsible loving parent.

Liberalism is a religion. Despite failing whenever implemented, disciples of Liberalism faithfully believe if they can spend a little more of “other people’s money”, they can bring forth their godless utopia where man is the ultimate authority. Atheists tend to embrace Liberalism.

Conservatism equals true/real compassion; rooted in common sense and honoring the human spirit. Conservatism celebrates achievement and a desire to be all one can be.

Liberalism is harmful and idiotic, while shrouded in so-called compassion. For example. Teachers at an LA school wanted Ebonics to be acceptable speech for black students. They argued that speaking Ebonics was cultural and learning English was too difficult. Black kids are not too stupid to learn to speak English correctly. Also, an inability to speak English is economically stifling.

And yet, whenever compassionate conservatives suggest learning English be required, they are branded racist by liberals.

You would think a “Liberal” is someone who is easy going, embracing a live-and-let-live attitude. In reality, liberals tend to be HUGE control freaks; arrogantly thinking themselves compassionately and intellectually superior to us common folks. This makes them best qualified to dictate how we should live our lives. Liberalism birthed Political Correctness which seeks to control what we are permitted to think, say and do.

Unquestionably, America was founded on Godly principles. Liberals want all reference to God banned from government and the public square, while demanding we display great tolerance for every other religion. Am I saying liberals tend to be anti-Christian? Yes!

Liberals are notorious for setting rules for the rest of us while exempting themselves. They want the government to demand we drive little more than lawnmowers covered with an auto body to “save the planet”. Meanwhile, they travel in limos and private jets.

In a nutshell, Liberals believe they know best. They use government to constantly invade our lives with new restrictions and controls. Government control hidden in Obamacare is the epitome of Liberalism.

I hope I have educated my family and others a little to the virtues of Conservatism and why it is best for all people.

    Typical right wing rhetoric: try to portray themselves as victims, because society refuses to willfully submit to their agenda of promoting hatred and division. So, they project any resistance to their irrational worldview as others causing “division”. They consider rational thinking to be a disease. They vilify those who don’t conform to their Imperialist ideology. They conjure up a reality about their opposition and then attack their opposition on the faulty premises they assigned to them. It’s this type of bigotry, hatred and delusion that has fueled them to portray themselves as being significant in number, giving unsuspecting nitwits the impression these folks are larger in force than they actually are, compelling them to jump on the bandwagon where they’re eventually convinced to identify with these loonies.

    What a well thought out and written article. You hit the proverbial “nail on the head” when you wrote “liberals tend to be HUGE control freaks; arrogantly thinking themselves compassionately and intellectually superior to us common folks. This makes them (think they are) best qualified to dictate how we should live our lives” That is clearly evidenced by the fact they want bigger and bigger government to control every thing we do in and with our life. I ocmmend you sir!

    Well, Mr. Marcus. By the tone of the comments here,you see what “conservatism” is up against in America.

    The Powers That Be are trained professionals in “divide and conquer”.

    I’m so sorry, but this article was just so flawed in so many ways. Where do I begin? The analogy of the school boy was poorly explained. Where exactly in ‘liberalism’ do we have the example of someone being told ‘if you don’t like working, then just don’t work’. That is the biggest stretch of the imagination ever. The point about Obamacare is so skewed as well, this whole idea of ‘spending other people’s money’. Coming from England, it’s quite obvious that having a National Healthcare System isn’t ‘spending other people’s money’, it’s a form of insurance on a national level where via taxes, each person puts some money into the pot and then takes out as and when needed.

    For example, in the UK you would never have a situation where someone was refused heath care or had to put their whole family into poverty because they can’t afford insurance, and we spend LESS than the USA in our GDP percentage on healthcare.

    Furthermore, you would be very hard pressed to find many liberals who believe that children shouldn’t be taught to speak good English in favour of Ebonics. In fact, it is Conservatives with their ‘let the rich get rich and the poor stay poor’ attitude that crush public education by not putting enough funding into it, and being less likely to be in favour of affirmative action and scholarships.

    Lastly, the idea of separation of church and state is in fact, a biblical concept. The Bible says ‘Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty’. Moral coercion has no part in the religion of Christ. He says ‘Come let us reason together..’, not ‘Come and let us enforce religious legislation that will ensure people do what WE want them do regardless of their conscience’.

    This is not to say that I am pro-abortion, pro-gay priests/marriage etc, but that religious freedom relies on the state not being pro one particular religion or school of thought, whether that’s bible belt evangelicalism, or secular atheism.

    Total hit peice. You say you are “conservative” then go off the deep end to try an disuade people from being conservative. that’s a nasty pulpit you ar preaching from.

    and, excuse me, but the ability, or inability of gettin your “kids butt” out of bed isn’t really a political platform of conservative or liberal. Beign a jackass to your kid doesn’t make you a conservative, what a load of tripe.

    Please keep conservatism to fiscal and moral realms. Saying that consevative parents are incompassionate puts you in fantasy land, and I pray that people don’t belive you.

    This post is a mixed bag of nuts. There are much better posts on this site if you look.

    Wow after reading this I am wondering where did you come up with this stuff?
    I would have to disagree with you on so many points.

    To say that liberals don’t believe in God is crazy to say the least. I believe in God and I am a Christian by choice and since I am not Republican I suppose to many I am considered a liberal.

    I also believe that you have no right to state that the so called virtues of Conservatism is best for me and others. Who are you to choose for me. What’s for you is for you and what’s for me is for me. Just because I choose a route that is different from yours this does not me make anti Christian or a bad parent.

    You stated that liberalism birthed political correctness which seeks to control what we are permitted to think, say and do. I feel that you are doing the exact same thing by saying that the virtues of Conservatism is best for all people. You are in fact telling me what political belief system I should believe in.

    I had voted Democratic since being eligible to vote in 1983. After witnessing the democrats willingly destroy everything they supposedly stood for ie. the little guy and inclusion for all, I decided to bow out gracefully from this inevitable train wreck.

    Because of my fiscally conservative lifestlye, my family and friends had already assumed that I was a Republican.

    Although I am not a Republican, Newt Gingrich remains my first choice for President and I’m sure that he would demolish Obama in any debate with or without his teleprompter.

    Ultimately, Cain appeals more to everyday people and is capable of making Obama a one termer while freeing a multitude of minds along the way.

    I’ll stop reading after that 1st comedy bit.
    Lloyd, you do a better job of deterring Blacks away from the Republican Party than the racist white Conservatives do. No self respecting African descendant would align themselves with the likes of you and the bigots you apologize for. Apparently, you have a SERIOUS problem with Blacks who won’t kowtow to massa wit you. I’m sure with the money they kick down to you that you’ll be able to justify it with being able to have your rhetoric published on a site with a Black target audience. Otherwise, that’s ’bout as much as we’ll have to do with you and the people you work for. Get over it.
