washingtontimes.com ^ | August 9, 2014 | Kellan HowellPosted on 8/9/2014, 6:02:03 PM by Tailgunner JoeSeveral GOP 2016 presidential hopefuls made public appearances in Iowa Saturday, including
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz who told conservatives to remain optimistic going into the next election cycle. During a speech at the Iowa state fair, Mr. Cruz told listeners that conservatives would take back the country from President Obama and Democrats, just as they did when Jimmy Carter was president, The Hill reported.
Liberalism vs. Conservatism – What Difference Does It Make?… “More and more, conservatism is being voiced by the people who lean more to the libertarian side of the political spectrum. Many of us want nothing more than to be simply left alone. We do not desire the government to be in our homes or in our lives and we see much of the federal government as an unneeded and unwanted intrusion into our personal lives. “

There is a great divide in America. On one side, you have liberalism, voiced by a group of progressive Democrats that believe in greater government control of almost every aspect of our daily lives. On the other, there is conservatism.
More and more, conservatism is being voiced by the people who lean more to the libertarian side of the political spectrum. Many of us want nothing more than to be simply left alone.

Rush Limbaugh another Obama enabler: Moralmatters.org reader says Limbaugh is a political prostitute April 5, 2013
Limbaugh talks big, but falls short in conveying the reality about Obama. He, like Hannity, Levin, Laura Ingraham and a host of (so-called) “Conservative” talk show hosts continue to whine and wring their hands over Obama’s political actions and agenda. But, when it comes down to brass tacks, these self-proclaimed “Conservatives,” fall woefully short.
They will not expose Obama for his identity frauds and forgeries, even though now, it has been legally evidenced that Obama’s (needed and required) documentation for the office of president has been found to be (felony) fraudulent.

Why Draw the Line at Couples?

RUSH: Here’s Art in Windsor, Connecticut, as we go back to the phones. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Rush, how you doing?
RUSH: I’m fine, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: Look, I just think, you know, there used to be laws that said black people can’t marry white people. I don’t think this is any different. I mean, if you’re gay and you want to marry somebody who’s gay, marry somebody who’s gay. That’s your business. What is the business of the state government or the federal government telling me who I can and can’t marry?
RUSH: You are serious with this? You want to equate interracial marriage to homosexual marriage?
CALLER: Yeah, I think that a person should be able to make their own personal decision. I think actually this should be something the Republican Party should be in support of. It’s individual rights, you can marry whoever you want.
RUSH: You don’t have to worry, the Republican Party’s moving in that direction, it is.
Few issues highlight the gaping philosophical divide between libertarians and modern conservatives more starkly than the issue of guns. This might seem counterintuitive, because libertarians and modern conservatives often stand shoulder to shoulder against liberals and progressives to defend individual gun rights. The convenient alliance between modern conservatives and libertarians in the political trenches, however, conceals a fundamental and serious philosophical disagreement.
In order to fully grasp the division between libertarians and modern conservatives on this issue, it is important to understand why libertarians and conservatives think gun rights are so important. At the most general level, both libertarians and modern conservatives agree that all men have a natural right to defend themselves against aggression. More specifically, every man has a natural right to repel with violent force any unjust aggression against his life or his property.
Libertarians and modern conservatives do not defend individual gun rights out of some bizarre and loony obsession with a 200-year-old piece of parchment called “The Constitution.” On the contrary, they hold that the Constitution of the United States merely articulated something about man’s nature that has always been and always will be true.
The logical implication of this, both libertarians and modern conservatives agree, is that individuals have a natural right not just to defend their lives and their property against aggression from individual murderers and thieves, but that they have a natural right to defend themselves from unjust aggression by government. Hollow indeed would be the right to self-defense if it did not include the right to defend oneself against aggression by government – including one’s own government, because governments have killed and robbed exponentially more people than have private criminals.
Recognizing this fact, libertarians and modern conservatives agree that the natural right to self-defense must include a right to defend oneself against unjust government aggression, and that doing so usually requires more than simply a stick or a slingshot. A population armed with modern guns is not easily cowed, robbed, or massacred unless governments resort to wildly immoral and indiscriminate tactics or weapons of mass destruction.
So far so good. Libertarians and modern conservatives agree that…..
What Lies Beneath… “It is a known fact that the policies of the government today, whether Republican or Democrat are closer to the 1932 platform of the Communist Party than they are to either of their own party platforms in that critical year.”

As we are watching the nation rip itself to shreds over a 2.3% cut in the over spending of money that we don’t have, I hope that you my reader are asking yourself… why. Why is there so much controversy over such a small cut?

Have you ever stopped to wonder why conservative ideology is having such a hard time gaining traction with our younger generations?
Many of you will know where I am headed with this, but I believe it is time we took a long and hard look at the education system in this country. Could it be we have abdicated our rights as parents and leaders of our community to educate our children as we see fit? It may be happening in places where we would least expect it.
