The column linked here is the very best concise summary I have ever read on governing. There are two types. Americans, desiring liberty and individual freedom, left the statist big-government type behind in Europe and created a nation of limited government based upon individual rights and liberties. Those not wanting freedom, but wanting power, and those content with others ruling over them – stayed in big-government Europe.
Now Democrats demand that the US no longer be a nation of freedom and liberty and individual achievement, but a big government cesspool of elite corruption, stealing the futures of all who vote for them, and stealing the futures of those unborn, futures “Progressives” really don’t care about because they don’t have kids.
Check demographics of all states and nations with “Progressive” ideologies in power. ALL are in absolute demographic decline. And ALL are pushing policies to do their absolute best to ensure a dark, poor, enslaved future world…. Why? They don’t have children.
This article does an excellent, non-inflammatory (unlike my description of it) job of summarizing the status and goals of BG (Big Government) and LG (Limited Government).
Why is my description inflammatory? Because I LOATHE “Progressives”. Because I HATE that my children (12, 14, 19) were and are not able to grow up in a nation as free and as dedicated to individual liberty as it was just 40 years ago. Because the tax, spend and freedom-destructive policies of the Left – and of those on the Right who think NOTHING is more important than abortion – are destroying the free futures of my kids – and theirs.
Yes, I know all about Civil Rights and, yes, I am aware of the history of racism in this country. Unlike “Progressives” who are the enemies of freedom, however I know what we have done as a nation to overcome it, and how completely ridiculous it is to label as “racist” a nation that just elected an African American as President, and that the ONLY people I KNOW who worry about skin color are “Progressives.” It wasn’t Blacks who gave Blacks the vote, died for their freedom from slavery, died with them on the freedom trail or voted into office politicians and judges who overturned racism – it was whites. TIme to give whites the recognition they are due for this – and to turn to education, culture and tax policies that now are all that hold-back minorities in America.
If you have time and interest in why Conservatives give you freedom and liberty and progress and a positive future for your children, you should read it. If you don’t care about the future, or believe against all historical experience that “Progressives” are correct, then you probably don’t want to read it and become educated.
