What is Conservatism?
Original post made by Stephanie, Downtown, on Jul 5, 2009
Conservatism is not a narrow philosophy……it is the philosophy of the Founding Fathers. It is the philosophy of liberty, opportunity, private property, national security.
It is a philosophy that promotes the liberation of the individual, that nurtures competition, and that embraces all people regardless of who they are, or where they have been.
It is a philosophy that rejects the authoritarianism of the few, of the politician, of the bureaucrat; and promotes limited, stable and predictable government authority.
It is a philosophy that rejects the bankrupting of future generations to pay for the benefits of the current generation.
It is a philosophy that expects its citizens to abide by a just and righteous and predictable law and demands the same from aliens who cross our borders illegally.
It is a philosophy which emphasizes the family and faith, over government.
Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny. It's the only one. It's based on thousands of years of human experience. There is nothing narrow about the conservative philosophy. It's a liberating philosophy.
It is a magnificent philosophy.
It is a philosophy for the ages, for all times.
