Conservatives Aren't the extremists

Excepts from David Limbaugh:

Editors note: conservative does not mean Republican, it means classical liberal thinking, a-la the enlightened philosophers.

Conservatives are not the ones who sermonize about tolerance yet demonstrate intolerance toward conservative and Christian thought; support exterminating babies in the womb; apologize the world over for America; or gut the military and missile defense because of some dangerously egotistical notion that they have the magic to turn evil into goodness with their charisma and eloquence or, even worse, because they refuse to recognize evil in the world, except as emanating from the United States.

Conservatives aren't the ones who have so little faith in their fellow human beings that they diminish their dignity by expanding the welfare state and increasing man's learned dependency on government; judge people by the color of their skin instead of the content of their character; pit economic groups against one another, stoking the flames of envy and greed; punish success, reward failure and promote mediocrity; side with the world's tyrants and dictators; slavishly attach themselves to leftist propaganda about impending environmental catastrophes; promote a secular humanist worldview that considers government a quasi-deity that can perfect the human condition; or morally equate the practice of enhanced interrogation techniques to save innocent lives with that of beheading innocent people. . .

glamorize the world's tyrants and the conditions in their thugocracies; ignore the verdict of history that socialism destroys the human spirit and cannot work in the real world -- assuming it would be desirable if it could, which it most certainly would not


  1. I will not live in a Socialist/Communist America. We are losing it fast. It's time we march...

  2. This is deep, Although "support exterminating babies in the womb" sounds a bit extreme.

    I say we extermintate Fox news, then the world will be a better place. =)

  3. Emme- please don't default to the fox news bashing, your too smart for that. Yes, the piece is direct and the word choice is rough, but the explaination of the different visions is accurate. Thanks for the comment. You are multi-talented.

  4. Is the point you are trying to make here that extremism in general is counter productive? If so I agree, although I must say this is a rather one sided attack on extremism....a rather 'extreme' attack.

  5. Is this the jaime Strong I know? If so hello, how are you and so good to hear your "voice." Let me know if it is you from SHS.I would love to catch up.

    Your comment is well stated... and quite insightful and yet funny in a Jaime sort of way, so I think it is you.
