Free Republic is the premier online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We’re working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America. And we always have fun doing it.


If you think you'd be better at running the tyranny than liberals are, you aren't a conservative.


Example: You, as a conservative, know that places like New York City are tyrannical because of their gun control policies. The citizens of NYC have no option for defending themselves, except to call the cops. The NYC government, police and police union know that there is no other option for security. They have a monopoly, and use it like the mafia.

You know that big government is a problem--you don't like Bloomberg or DeBlasio (or Guiliani?).

You know that unions are a problem--you don't like any of them.

But, you suddenly turn on your principles for the cops that carry out the orders and desires of the big city government and union.

You're not conservative.
