    Do you agree with this statement?

    I saw this picture on the internet and was curious what others thought of it.

    Of course I agree, it is in fact why I then chose to be Conservative.

    What I find amazing is the total lack of logic in that entire description.

    Re: Do you agree with this statement?

    Hmm...



    Let me put it this way.


    People as individuals are often well-intentioned. They don't really mean any harm.

    Get a bunch of those individuals together and get them fired up about something and you have a MOB. Mobs have a regrettable tendency to destroy things and harm people.

    "Government" is a sort of organized mob. It's a large number of people devoted to telling an even larger number of people what to do. This sort of thing tends to be unpopular, unless it is someone else's ox getting gored.

    Much of what passes for "liberalism" these days, consists of policies that I believe would "Gore my ox". Therefore I tend to view the end results of liberalism as largely bad... on days when I'm feeling testy, I might even go so far as to say "evil."

    That doesn't mean I think individual liberals are evil people individually. I expect almost all of them mean well.... with a few possible exceptions like Babs Boxer and Harry Reid. I just think that when they get together en-mass and try to run things that the end results tend to be bad for almost everyone.



    Best I know how to explain it...

    Thats pretty much how I feel Conservatism. There are few people who don't mean well, but generally, their collective policies seem harmful to the country.

    It's all a matter of perspective. To liberals, conservatism is "wrong" or "evil". To conservatives, the same is true for liberalism. That's why the absolutist tone in the OP is so ludicrous.

    Nothing can exist without its opposite. Were it to cease existing, it would be bad.

    If liberalism was absolute, we'd be in trouble. If conservatism was absolute, we'd be in trouble.

    Would you want to live in a world where guys like Navy Pride or Disneydude called shots? I know I wouldn't.
