A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"

16Apr/10Off

Hey Black Man, Aren’t You Uncomfortable Around Whitey?

I can't wait to get home, download my new podcasts for the day, and hear what Dennis Prager has to say about this story.

The insinuation from this "reporter" is, of course, that black people only really vote for liberal Democrats, so a black man at a Tea Party rally must be there by accident and afraid for his own safety among such racist, homophobic, xenophobic bigots.

I understand why a reporter like Kelly O'Donnell thinks the way she does.  I just don't like it, and firmly believe that her mindset (i.e. all black people not only should be, but are, progressive liberals and supporters of bigger and bigger, unsustainable government) ought to wake some people up to the fact that it is the Left who is obsessed with race.

The Tea Party movement is all about fiscal responsibility, personal and national accountability, limited (Constitutional) government.  It's sad that so many Americans (liberal Democrats and progressives) don't believe in those things; it's even more tragic that they resent those of us who do.

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
