Conservatism 101 for those not paying attention
Renew America ^ | 11-26-11 | Lloyd Marcus

Posted on 11/26/2011 5:35:10 PM PST by ReformationFan

You and I are politically well informed. But there are many Americans like my family who do not follow politics as closely as we do. Their political views are shaped by liberal media bias hit pieces, spin, and sound bites.

99.9 % of my family are Democrats because Marcus family traditional taught us the Democrats are "for the little guy." Republicans are "rich white racists." Liberal media and the Democratic Party jointly support and promote this silly, simple lie, which still wins the Democrats 95% of the black vote.

Despite me — the eldest of his five children being a black conservative tea party Republican — my 84-year-old dad's negative view of Republicans remains steadfast. Dad tolerates my baffling political views because he loves me.

However, I would not be surprised if my family scheduled an intervention. A black van pulls up, a hood is thrown over my head, and I'm carted off to an undisclosed location. I am denied food, water, and bathroom privileges and subjected to video of Obama speeches 24/7 until I break.

It occurred to me that my family, like many Americans, are probably clueless regarding the truth of what it means to be a liberal and a conservative. Ironically, the majority of my family live extremely responsible "conservative" lives. They go to work every day, serve their communities, attend church, and raise their kids. And yet, the liberal media has led them to believe the term "conservative" equals evil white racist.

So, I would like to offer my family and others a little "Conservatism 101." For fun, let's call it "Conservatism for Dummies."

Lloyd that was a good start.. but you merely greased the skids..
Its true that non conservatives are multiplyied ignorance..
That is most liberals(democrats/rinos/leftists)..

Some them know all this yet remain malefactors..ON PURPOSE..
They literally hate the United States.. hard to believe but its true..
They are a virtual 5th column.. a traitorous cabal..

Why George Sorors is not perp walked and given waterboarding never know..
Could be the FBI is penetrated and despises America...
ELSE.... where are they?...

Good luck Lloyd. Conservatism for Dummies or Conservativsm for Useful Idiots or Conservatism for Dhimmis might work...although I’ve tried it and it’s less stressful banging your head against the wall.

What has no chance of working is Conservatism for Socialists, Conservatism for Marxists, Conservatism for Communists or Conservatism for Totalitarians.

Before you begin, identify the anti-life, anti-individual collectivist you are dealing with. Then, more ammo.

This cuts both ways.

There are many Democrats that live out Conservative values and beliefs...

...and there are plenty of supposed ‘Conservatives’ that have no problem with a big, tyrannical government, just so long as ‘our’ guys are in charge.

Bush was a good example of the latter; Romney, too.
