TIME TO GIVE BIRTH TO THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY?

Posted by Jax Hawk on Wednesday, March 04, 2009 10:25:57 AM Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” —Ronald Reagan There are no longer sharp dividing lines between the Republican and Democrat parties in the USA Congress.Or for that matter in all levels of politics. What we have is “Rinos”(Republicans in name only) from states where real Conservatives cannot win elections, but Democrats have historically been out of favor. Then we have here in the South, where voters no mater how conservative they are, remember that Lincoln was the first Republican President, and vote Democrat no matter who runs. The South is also well known for “Blue Dog” Democrats, and fiscal Conservatives who run as Democrats only because very few would vote Republican. It is past time for the Conservative Party to be formed.The dividing line between Liberals and Conservatives has been drawn in the sand. Those who believe in cradle to grave government control are on one side, and those who believe in the individual right to succeed and excel are dependent upon himself or herself is one of the dividing lines. The other main division is the sanctity of life from conception to natural death. The Conservatives advocate this position, whereas the Liberals believe the State should allow partial birth abortion and Euthanasia. There are many other defining positions that separate a Conservative from a Liberal. Core conservative principles include outspoken belief in God and country, and many U.S. conservatives support a fiscal policy rooted in small government, laissez faire capitalism, and supply-side economics. In foreign policy, American conservatives usually advocate “American exceptionalism,” a belief that the U.S. is unique among nations and that its standing and actions do and should guide the course of world history. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, American conservatives have been the driving force behind increased U.S. military power. Liberals think of us as people whu grasp their guns and bibles! I do not think this is a bad thing! In the USA today, social liberalism combines support for government social programs, progressive taxation, and moderate Keynesianism with a broad concept of rights, which today includes a right to education and health care. However, this is by no means the only contemporary American political current that draws heavily on the liberal tradition. So you can see there is a definite division between the two political philosophy’s. Thus, I believe the need for a new Conservative party! And Ron Paul would be a great candidate!Paul is a member of the Liberty Caucus of Republican congressmen which aims to limit the size and scope of the federal government, just what the doctor ordered! :
