John-the-Baptist-263x300.jpgFor crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?”  The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.

The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown's Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what's right for New Hampshire.” Romney's statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push back if Republicans go down that road. This hogwash drives me nuts because Conservatism is not mean, Liberalism is mean!

Mr Romney you are an honorable man. But, if you are not going to boldly articulate the superior attributes of Conservatism; how it is rooted in compassion and why it is most beneficial to all Americans -- if you are afraid to explain the foundational evils of Liberalism, please stay home; out of the 2016 presidential race.

In the first 2012 presidential debate, Romney kicked Obama's butt with truth and facts. Then, Romney went on “prevent defense” in the next debate. His behavior said, “I have Obama on the ropes. I'm not going to say or do anything to blow my lead.” Consequently, in the second debate Romney allowed Obama to get away with lies.

Clueless low info voters believed Obama's lies and his sycophant MSM allies said nothing. Romney's lukewarm defense of Republican principles (Conservatism) led to 4 million frustrated Republican voters staying home, not bothering to cast their votes on election day.

Thus far, Romney is telegraphing that he will use the same failed “don't-come-across-too-conservative” strategy again. Stay home Mr Romney. Please stay home.

Even the Bible expresses displeasure with those who are afraid to stand up for what they believe. “So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”

Like President Ronald Reagan, I am a bold colors kind of guy.

Enough with the weak kneed apologizing and watering down what it means to be conservative; allowing certain Americans to break laws due to race, embracing immoral and culturally destructive behaviors in the name of inclusion.

I liked G. W. Bush, but I rue the day that he came out with his “Compassionate Conservatism”. He reenforced Dems/liberal's lie that Conservatism is not by nature, compassionate. The truth is Conservatism is the epitome of compassion. When will someone have the backbone to stand up for Conservatism; tell Americans why it is far better for them than Liberalism? I am a black conservative because it would be idiotic and self-destructive to embrace Liberalism.

Conservatism 101: A Tale of Two Dads – Little Johnny Says He Does Not Want to Go to School.

Liberal dad's reply: “Son, I feel your pain. School has too many challenges. Stay in bed. I will provide for and protect you.”

Conservative dad's reply: “Johnny, you get your butt out of that bed this instant and get ready for school. I will speak to the principal, attend PTA and do whatever necessary. You need an education to have a happy and fulfilled life. I love you son.”

Which dad is righteous, loving and truly compassionate?

Folks, my little scenario illustrates the foundational beliefs under girding Conservatism and Liberalism in America. Conservatism is good for people, offering help to launch folks into self-reliance and personal achievement which creates self-respect and self-esteem.

Liberalism is notorious for dissing people, implying that they are stupid and weak in need of cradle to grave government dependency and intellectual liberals managing their lives.

This is why it is so frustrating to watch the MSM get away with branding the Tea Party “extreme” with very little push back and even support from the GOP. At the core of the Tea Party is Conservatism. Unlike liberals, we respect the individual. We are patriots who desire our government to abide by the Constitution. We desire smaller government, laws enforced equally, fiscal responsibility and a president who does not behave like our Imperial Dictator. And yet, we in the Tea Party are the ones called crazy extremists and a threat to our nation. Why won't someone tell America the truth, who we really are?

Continuing to allow liberal's lies about conservatives to go unchallenged is unacceptable. Liberal's modus operandi is to accuse conservatives of the very crimes they commit.

For example: Liberals say conservatives are intolerant. Liberals are the epitome of intolerance. And for all their campaigning against bullying, liberals are notorious bullies. Talk about blood in the water; how many times have we witnessed the liberal MSM having a feeding frenzy ripping apart someone who dared to express a point of view other than their consensus on an issue?

Bloody victims barely hold on to life after suffering public humiliation and the loss of property and income. And yet, these vicious liberal bullies get all the credit; praised as paragons of compassion. The truth is compassion is the heart of Conservatism.

With Obama's declining approval numbers, GOP candidates have a golden opportunity to explain the superior attributes and benefits of Conservatism.

Who will be our John the Baptist? Who will be our voice crying in the wilderness proclaiming the good news of Conservatism?

  • Unfortunately, Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin.  On the outside they look different but when you get them behind closed doors they are all the same.  It boils down to; "How much money and power can I get for myself and what do I have to do to get it?"  Nobody seems to be for doing what is right for the country anymore.  The other problem is that you can't get enough people together to vote these idiots out of office.  There are too many uncaring, ill informed, brainless voters that keep them in office.  It is getting worse because we are raising generations of those voters. Example:  at an election not too long ago, the news was asking who somebody voted for and the reply was;"I voted Democrat 'cause my daddy voted Democrat afore me!"  And that person was proud of that!!!!  It will get a lot worse before it gets any better.

  • Romney is a loser. I don't trust Brown. They are both RINOs, but are lauded by the GOP establishment. The GOP are indeed leaning left. And they're doing it in a hurry.

  • Man Lloyd you tell it like it is! Please run for president!

  • Folks are out here talking about conservatism, but being largely marginalized by moderates, progressives, RINOs and libturds of all stripes. They say they will vote for hitlery before they would vote for Crus, Lee or Walker. I tell them their thinking got us where we are today.
  • You are right on target David. Just look at Mississippi. The whole entire republican party in Mississippi sold out & put themselves in debt to the demon rats just to keep a tired old has been in office. They could not even come up with a good solid candidate to run against old cockoman. They were ready - willing & bent over to kiss the behinds of the demon rats just to win one more election. If this is what the republicans have to do to win then it is a fact - the republican party is dead. They are just a secondary group of the communist party. I urge all conservatives to join the real conservative party - the TEA PARTY.

  • Try Cruz - paul or lee. It will not be mclame - baynor -macdonneell - Rubyyo -chrissie or any other of the RINO's. The last thing we need in congress is more Osama or communist supporters.

  • The average Conservative has gotten a permanent case of whip-lash from being told that so-and-so is a Conservative, only to find out after an election that he or she tows the party 'moderate' line instead of the Conservative ideals they ran on. This happens with so much frequency that is now very hard for the voters to stay loyal to the Party that is supposed to represent Conservatives. 

    So what are Conservatives to do? Start with a prayer, then look deep into your soul and decide the America you want for your children and your grandchildren to inherit. Do you want to leave them an America adrift is a political sea of immorality? Or an America where a persons handshake means nothing? Or maybe an America where there is no such thing as right and wrong, just a case by case basis of what is too far over the edge? Or how about an America where it is acceptable that our Nations leaders lie to us just to keep us in-line and uninformed?

    I pray that none of you want any of those options for our offspring. Now comes the hard part... WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE PROBLEM. Everyday I read someone's comment to the effect that "we have talked enough, so now what are we going to do about it". Then comes the barrage of ideas and single-minded schemes to fix our problems. After years of reading the many ways to fix the problems, I'm always shocked to see little or no follow-up to announcing the latest fix. However, what scares me the most is how everyone wants to nibble around the edges and those that want to go further cannot find others to back them up.

    I'm mostly concerned about those that scream, as loud as they can, that we need to change our Constitution. I cannot go along with an idea that is backed-up by the check-book of one George Soros. To date he is bankrolling 8 non-profits that who's sole purpose is to see an Article V Convention be opened. Call me paranoid, but if George Soros is for something then I know dam well that I'm against it. Besides, our political leaders ignore our Constitution as it is, so why does anyone think that changes to it will be followed?

    While you chew on that last question, allow me to throw another at you... Why is it that Political Parties control so much of our everyday lives? From Banking to Home buying, to Football, and even how we grow or hunt our own foods, Political Parties control us. So why do we allow it? The Politicians are not to rule over us, they are supposed to run the country FOR us. It is no longer safe to say... "vote Republican this election because they will do the right thing", because the majority of Republicans, after winning an election, suddenly go soft and start leaning towards the Democrats way. The main reason that Republicans turn tail and run for the Left is because the Democrat Party has built a massive grinding machine that will grind up Politicians and spit them out like vomit if they step on too many irrational liberal sensibilities. And it matters not that  we have the logical, moral, legal, and sensible argument on our side, it only matters what others "FEEL".

    Not wanting to drag this out any longer, I would like to go ahead and propose an idea that will take some smart Lawyer types to figure out the proper way to go about achieving the following goal, if we have enough people behind the idea. In order for us to once again restore some order to our Political Process, we must "Do Away With All Political Parties"! If we can take away their power over us by taking out what makes them so powerful, then we will have a fighting chance of saving this Nation.

    One last thing... our Founding Fathers would be very proud of us if we can pull together and rid ourselves of the Cancer of Politics, the Party apparatus. Even George Washington warned us to NOT form Political Parties! I thank God every day that he helped give birth to the greatest Nation on the planet.

  • Excellent Post! 

  • Conservatives, will you please stand up and fight.

  • Darn it, I'm writting dumbass phone ta
    That keeps changing my words. I hope you can reC between the lines.
