Am I the only who feels like Conservatives are treated like completely idiotic and brainless fools for the simple fact that they are conservative? If someone watched the mainstream news or listened to the wisdom of the latest Hollywood celebrities or sat through a typical university lecture, they would be unable to come to the conclusion that conservatives are intellectual in the least. They’d believe that conservatives are archaic, that they make up facts to support cardboard ideas that are irrelevant to a real society. They’d believe we are hateful, bigoted, overzealous ignoramuses who live in a little world that we make up in our minds and we best off in the nut house, in a straight jacket, both for our safety and for the safety of every one else, mostly the liberals.
Why is this, though? Is it because the typical Conservative believes that the government should not waste tons of money by overhauling health care? Is it because we look at the fact that the government cannot even effectively run a postal service and believe that the government should not be in the business of business?
Or is it because the typical Conservative believes that morality is determined by reason and not primal urges? That marriage is not capable of being redefined? That a Conservative can look at two different things and be able to say, “those things are not the same”? Is it because we refuse to call a circle a square? Is it because we believe in the reaffirming procreation and the future of our society as as essential role in marriage, not the lusts of consenting adults?
Perhaps its the unwavering mantra of a true Conservative that the Declaration of Independence has something important to say? Is it our belief that all man have the right to live? That human persons have value no matter their age, wantedness, talents, intelligence, health, or level of wealth?
I guess I realize that it’s easy to see why reason, fiscal responsibility, and respect for life make one an idiot.
Well I guess we’re a nation of morons then. Look at this graph from a Gallup poll last fall:
Conservatives far outnumber liberals and have for quite some time, basically, always. You only think we have been outnumbered because most Hollywood celebrities support liberal causes, because most mainstream media outlets are liberally biased, but they don’t truly represent what we average American’s believe. You see, here’s the thing: we aren’t idiots. We aren’t unintelligent. We aren’t even the stinking minority. We have something to say. We have something valuable to say. We have something to protect: our nation, our future, our families, our freedoms. We don’t succumb to being pc, to granting rights where no right exists, to repealing the unalienable right to life for the sake of convenience.
And for the record, I’d vote for Bachmann again and again.
