The Hijacking of Conservatism by Big Government Progressives

January 1, 2011

This is one of the most meaningful things I have read during the last year.  I encourage anyone who considers themselves a conservative or a libertarian to read it.  Too many who claim to be conservative have comfortably supported things like the Patriot Act or don’t believe that burning flags is Constitutionally protected free speech.  This piece suggests that it is most important that true Constitutionalists stand up and defend the most offensive examples of behavior that is Constitutional.  And the author restates the Ben Franklin quote that those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

 

The terrorists desire to destroy our American way of life and our freedoms.  And so-called “conservatives” too often destroy those freedoms themselves in response to terror (Patriot Act, TSA, etc…)

I encourage you to read it and share it.  Happy New Year!
