You might not be aware, but there is a split among conservatives in regards to the way we should be impacting the culture.
On the one hand you have conservatives, true conservatives, who want to see stronger family values, and for America to return to a culture centered around the family unit.
On the other hand, you have “conservative inc.”, people who say they are conservatives, but only seem to point to economic policy to justify their label. At times, these people even prop up those who fly in the face of those trying to return some morality and decency to the country.
Conservative values in the United States center around the family, and protecting that unit. If you look around, you won’t find a whole lot of main stream media that encourages strong family bonds. Instead, you see the promotion of homosexuality, having children outside of marriage, and casting aside all Biblical values. This is what the REAL CONSERVATIVE movement is about.
“Conservative Inc.” wants you to believe that the most important thing in the world is money, and is willing to trample on Christian values to get it.
There’s a reason folks on the left accuse many Republicans of only wanting Christians to immigrate: it’s true. The United States was founded on Christian values, and we want to make sure it stays that way. Over the years we’ve seen that erode, and wouldn’t you know it, we’ve also seen an increase in non-Christian immigrants.
“Conservative Inc.” says things like “we want LEGAL immigration,” but that doesn’t go far enough. Legal immigrants vote democrat the vast majority of the time. “Conservative Inc.” is essentially signing a death warrant for REAL conservatives.
Another trend that is currently being promoted by “Conservative Inc.” is a celebration of homosexuals in the Republican party. While it’s great to have their support in elections, this flies in the face of true conservative values, and could even be considered a betrayal by those who use these people as props.
We want votes. We want votes. We want votes. Just, don’t put them in photo-ops.
I’m glad people are doing well financially. I want unemployment to be low. I want innovation. Just, not at the cost of the things I value the most. God blesses those who follow his commands, and TRUE CONSERVATIVES know this. It’s about time we start acting like it.
SO WHO IS CONSERVATIVE INC.?This excerpt from a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED piece by Greg Jones does a good job of summarizing just who makes up “Conservative Inc.”
And over time, I naturally came to admire many of the icons of modern conservatism. I read National Review and The Weekly Standard, the essays of Ayn Rand, and countless history books. My growing familiarity with the conservative “intelligentsia” exposed me to the political points view ostracized by overwhelmingly liberal professors during graduate school.
Satisfied with my ideological home, the Bill Kristols and Jonah Goldbergs of the world became my heroes—I would have gladly taken a bullet for Mitt Romney.
But a decade and a half after the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93, another monumental event would soon rattle my worldview and drastically alter my political trajectory.
I’m speaking, of course, of the election of Donald Trump.
I wasn’t always a believer. I criticized his candidacy anywhere and everywhere: in bars, on Facebook, even some of my early columns. After all, he was openly and flagrantly mocking men like John McCain—men I had I long since come to admire.
What Greg Jones is saying is that the traditional Republican establishment you’ve grown up with is Conservative Inc. You know, the swamp that Trump promised to drain (or at least part of it).
Jones goes on to talk about his “heroes” openly going after Trump, trying to hurt his chances in 2016, and possibly helping Hillary become president. Clearly, these people are more concerned with power than they are protecting conservative values.
Of course, establishment conservatives had to make ideological compromises for the sake of their new alliances. Policies they once heralded, at least intellectually, became part of President Trump’s populist platform. Policing the border and cutting taxes became Trumpist—not conservative—policies, and symbolized authoritarian overreach.
Nobody was talking about the successes of President Trump’s presidency: from a gangbusters economy to judicial appointments to wiping out ISIS, Number 45 was getting the job done.
As it stands, the Democrat Party has fallen into the hands of those who wish to promote transgenderism to children, the dismantling of the family unit, and the destruction of any kind of self reliance. They want a pacified populist that has no fear of God, and is desperate need of government assistance.
There is not ONE true conservative who would yield an inch to the democrats. The party that thinks it’s okay to murder babies after they have been born should not be negotiated with. The people willing to give up conservative values in exchange for a little bit of power are not to be trusted.
So, which side are you on?
