In commenting on the video, USMaleSF notes that he agrees with the conservative principles, but not the Republican party affiliation. I understand that attitude. Conservatism is a belief system, which is nice and pure. The Republican party is a political entity, peopled with fallible humans.
In the past several years, those same fallible humans have fallen away from pure conservative principles – they’ve been corrupt, profligate and, often, cowardly. However, they are the political party that still hews closest to those principles, especially in this fight against Obama. That’s why, rather than calling myself a conservative Republican, I would say that I’m a conservative who votes Republican.Email This Post To A Friend
