Here’s a tease to inspire you to click the link below. It’s an insightful little list to help clarify the differences between parties.
Conservatives and liberals approach almost every issue with completely different philosophies, underlying assumptions, and methods. That’s why it’s so hard to find genuine compromise between conservatism and liberalism — because not only are liberals almost always wrong, their solutions almost always make things worse.
With that in mind, let me take a few moments to explain some of the key differences between liberals and conservative to you.
This is also a man whose voting record (meager as it is) puts him in the "far left" category. He brazenly proposes heavy taxation in the face of a tax-hating citizenry. He is unapologetic about his support of entitlements and has consistently voted for bills laden with pork and earmarks. He believes redistribution of wealth is moral, not immoral, despite his supposed biblical roots. He supports every form of abortion, including infanticide. He has alarming ties to extremists, criminals, radicals, and foreign thugs. He started out as a lawyer who learned, and eventually taught, shakedown tactics. He is not afraid to use the race card even as he touts his biracialism as proof that he is "beyond" race. And his idea of defending our country from enemies is to first understand them.
A very thought provoking article. You can read the rest of it here: What If Obama Doesn’t Have America’s Best Interests at Heart?
I was reading this article: Enough Already! about the Conservative attitude toward the liberal media and it got me to thinking. The author is correct in stating that we have to stop thinking we can win over the press with fact and truth. They don’t care about such things and our parading them around is meaningless to them. They will continue to spout lies anyway. Why this is so, I don’t know, but it is, and we have to accept that. They have their minds made up and refuse to be concerned with facts.
I mentioned to a friend of mine over the weekend that if we’d had the Internet during the Clinton campaign back in ‘92, probably a lot more damning evidence about him would have come out. I think the blogosphere as a whole has been a boon to the Conservative – it allows us to get our message out to the general public by bypassing the standard media outlets. Truth and facts are out there, we just have to bring them out despite the standard media’s attempts to hide and/or ignore them. Really, the media today consists of nothing more than yellow journalism and it truly is up to us to separate fact from fiction.
Below is a quote from the article. I hope you read it in full.
It is a truism that to fight on a battlefield not of your choosing is to concede an enormous advantage to the opposition. The sooner the conservatives abandon their delusional belief in the innate goodness of the liberal heart and realize that the Big Media is their bitter enemy that has to be fought tooth and nail, the better their chances will be. Enough is enough. It’s time for the conservatives to wake up and smell the coffee.
