there is danger of becoming them if you use the same tactics
Same means, different ends.
The major definition of conservatism IS respect for law, life and people. One we start acting like them, we become them.
Having said that, I applaud Trump. But Trump is a results oriented person, his focus is on the goal. Once we focus on the method, we are lost....................................
That's no definition of conservatism that I've ever heard. And it's certainly not one I agree with. Conservatism is defined by Russell Kirk as the prioritization of liberty over equality. Personally, I consider its key component a respect for those traditions, values, and institutions that have withstood the test of time.
Resistance -- fighting back -- is a time-honored tradition. The values and institutions that have served humanity well for thousands of years are under assault by humanist elitists who think they can define a better world than God. This is no time for niceties, protocol, or reservations.
We "become them" only when our ENDS become theirs.
Every counter revolution has it s quislings. Take at look at yourself.
