God Save Us From Real Conservatism

I once told a very religious person, “If being a Christian means being like you, I don’t want to be one.” Its the same with being a conservative (at least in today’s understanding of the ideology). Frankly, a real conservative would, you know, conserve. But not today’s conservative. Today’s conservative spends money like a drunken sailor on shore leave.

We’re going to be building up our military.

We’re going to make our military so big and so strong and so great. It will be so powerful that I don’t think we’re ever going to have to use it. Nobody is going to mess with us.

I am with the veterans one-hundred percent.

~ Donald Trump, from the deck of the USS Iowa battleship, as he panders to military people

A real conservative would not back the Jews and Israel, but Trump does ONE THOUSAND PERCENT!!!

Just like the counter word, “liberal”, these words have no real meaning any longer. Its just an ID tag for the gullible throngs of citizens who equate their idea with something that has been hijacked by the establishment. Same with Democrat or Republican. Left or Right.

They split us into two “sides” where we don’t really agree with the planks within the platform, but have no choice if we want to “win”.

Well, dumbasses, have we won? No, we have not (and don’t get bent out of shape because I started this blog as B’Man’s REDSTATE Revolt, so yes, I was a dumbass, as well).

Laurence M Vance listed 40 things at LewRockwell that real conservatives “do, think, believe, and support” (but which aren’t really “conservative”):

  1. Real conservatives talk about reverence for and fidelity to the Constitution but don’t actually follow the Constitution.
  2. Real conservatives think that Americans should be locked in a cage to be raped and humiliated if they possess too much of a substance the government doesn’t approve of.

  4. Real conservatives think that Israel should receive more foreign aid than any other country.
  5. Real conservatives complain about Obamacare but never open their mouths about Bushcare—the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 that expanded Medicare beyond LBJ’s wildest dreams.
  6. Real conservatives believe that all tax reform should be revenue neutral.
  7. Real conservatives support the national security state overseen by the CIA, DIA, and NSA.

  13. Real conservatives support refundable tax credits like the earned income credit that allow some Americans to receive tax refunds when they paid in no taxes in the first place.
  14. Real conservatives complain, sometimes, about the abuses of the TSA, but never call for airports and the airlines to provide their own security.
  15. Real conservatives support federal gambling laws.
  16. Real conservatives support the government taking money from some Americans to educate the children of other Americans.

  19. Real conservatives support the U.S. empire of troops and bases that encircles the globe.
  20. Real conservatives criticize, sometimes, the waste and fraud in federal welfare programs, but support in principle the welfare state via WIC, food stamps, SSI, the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Section 8 rent subsidies, SCHIP, and TANF.
  21. Real conservatives believe the government is entitled to a portion of every American’s income.
  22. Real conservatives think that Social Security—an intergenerational, income-transfer, wealth-redistribution welfare program—should be “saved” so that future generations of the elderly can be supported by the young.
  23. Real conservatives support the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and see a role for the federal government in education even if they call for abolishing the federal Department of Education, which they rarely do anymore anyway.
  24. Real conservatives believe the government should provide the poor and farmers a safety net.
  25. Real conservatives support laws against victimless crimes.
  26. Real conservatives consider every veteran and member of the military to be a hero.
  27. Real conservatives think it is okay for the government to take money from those who work and give it those who don’t via unemployment benefits.
  28. Real conservatives support the United States imposing sanctions on other countries, a form of economic warfare.
  29. Real conservatives support a government space program.
  30. Real conservatives support a foreign policy of intervention in various degrees instead of a foreign policy of strict neutrality.

  34. Real conservatives support government grants for scientific and medical research.
  35. Real conservatives think that free trade agreements have something to do with free trade.
  36. Real conservatives believe it is the job of the U.S. government to provide relief to other countries after a natural disaster.
  37. Real conservatives support the federal ban on organ sales.
  38. Real conservatives would never publicly call for the elimination of the National School Lunch Program.
  39. Real conservatives oppose LGBT discrimination laws, but support the principle of federal anti-discrimination laws.
  40. Real conservatives support the government taking money from some Americans to pay for the health care of other Americans.

And, yes, The Donald is a “real conservative” according to much, but not all, of this list. But you want more simply because he tickled your ears with the immigration thingy.

  1. This post was about “conservatives”, but we all know that the “other side” is just as guilty for their own brand of hypocrisy.

    “I vote Democratic, because I’m pro-choice … except on schools, guns, trade, health care, energy, smoking, union membership, light bulbs, plastic bags, Walmart, what kinds of food you can eat. …”

        • What is needed is “KNOWING”…. Was it very painful for you and all of your ‘thinking”?

          I learned back in the early 1990’s that TRUMP was a mafioso JEW controlled “business” man that was bought and paid for by his willingness to buy or sell what and who ever, just as long as the ‘winner’ was TRUMP. If you cared about facts, you would have invested a little bit of time researching TRUMP, and his past. But it appears that you are more interested in supporting TRUMP, because you think he is a ‘winner’, but just how many people died or were destroyed so that the ‘TRUMP’ got where he is today?

          NEWS flash “SON”…. You can not point to one of these buffoons, that are being presented for us to vote on, that are not ZIONIST TRAITORS!

            • The solution is NOT to vote for the controlled puppets they provide us. The solution is referendum forcing desired changes, as opposed to voting for the same, lying bastards perpetrating this Jew-controlled, orchestrated plan. Large swaths of huge voter turnout decreases can send a big message, especially when the masses speak out about why they are abstaining. Orchestrated boycotts of goods and services offered by the guilty corporations, banks, media, etc goes a long way.

              There are many things that an educated public can do.

              But doing the same old same old is stupid and insane after so long.

              So is your plan to keeping doing the same old, genius?

  3. The Uniparty demopublican republicrat scam has reached the end of the line. The serfs don’t even notice how the globalist agenda keeps on rolling no matter which letter (R) or (D) is after some government lawyer’s name.

  4. Short version:

    Real conservatives want to force what they consider the only valid morality on everyone else. They are not against initiating as much force as is needed to achieve this aim, since they consider it defense of all that is “good.”

    Libertarians do not care what you do, as long as you do not initiate force (or the indirect force of fraud and libel) against them.

    The people who founded this country were libertarian, even if they were not called that at the time:

    “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” “No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.” (Thomas Jefferson to Francis Gilmer, 1816)

    “When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”–Thomas Paine

    “It cannot have escaped those who have attended with candor to the arguments employed against the extensive powers of the government, that the authors of them have very little considered how far these powers were necessary means of attaining a necessary end. They have chosen rather to dwell on the inconveniences which must be unavoidably blended with all political advantages; and on the possible abuses which must be incident to every power or trust, of which a beneficial use can be made. This method of handling the subject cannot impose on the good sense of the people of America. It may display the subtlety of the writer; it may open a boundless field for rhetoric and declamation; it may inflame the passions of the unthinking, and may confirm the prejudices of the misthinking: but cool and candid people will at once reflect, that the purest of human blessings must have a portion of alloy in them; that the choice must always be made, if not of the lesser evil, at least of the greater, not the perfect, good; and that in every political institution, a power to advance the public happiness involves a discretion which may be misapplied and abused. They will see, therefore, that in all cases where power is to be conferred, the point first to be decided is, whether such a power be necessary to the public good; as the next will be, in case of an affirmative decision, to guard as effectually as possible against a perversion of the power to the public detriment.” ~ James Madison, FEDERALIST No. 41

    “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.” ~ James Madison
