My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Conservatism My Views

I suppose it would be a good idea to state why I started Conservative Outrage and believe it would be a good idea to give a brief description of what I consider a “conservative” is.

Con·serv·a·tive

disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.

traditional in style or manner; avoiding novelty or showiness:

a person who is conservative in principles, actions, habits, etc *

That would describe me. What’s wrong with traditional values? What’s wrong with existing conditions, we are the wealthiest nation on earth. We got here by hard work, high standards and morals that preserved the individual, family and county.

I believe in family values as they were intended in the Bible and the Torah, as in the Church and the Temple. I believe in a strong military to protect this county from harm and intrusion of forces who would harm us. I believe in law and order and majority rules. I believe schools and colleges should teach our young their ABC’s, Arithmetic, Grammar, Reading of the classics and English as the language of the United States of America. I do not believe our schools and colleges should use their positions to push their own political agenda. Schools and colleges should be an open and free exchange of ideas. Health is one thing to teach however sex, morals, and respect should be taught in the home by both parents. Yes, BOTH parents who have stood before family and friends and their G-d and used words like love, honor, cherish and respect.

This county is 200+ years old and has gone from a small boatload of people at Plymouth, Massachusetts to the moon and soon to be beyond. It has conquered Polio, Smallpox, and Whooping Cough and has every other nation on earth coming here for health care. It has invented the reaper (combine to the young and city people), the automobile, computers that put men on the moon and now run the world and the Polaroid Camera .It produces more food, I believe, than any other nation on earth. It gives food to nations and people who would otherwise have nothing to eat and starve. In the time of global tragedy The United States of America gives more money, care, and medical supplies than most the other counties combined.

We have freed more people from tyranny and dictators in our short existence than any other country in the world. Just ask the French from World War I, the Jews from World War II, the Kuwaitis and now the Iraqis. We have done it all without fanfare or bravado. Then we go to the countries we defeated and help rebuild them. We continue to call France, Spain and Germany our allies although they in the past have consistently fought against the United States in the United Nations. Our hearts are open to all who ask for help and our arms are strong to carry the burden often time unwanted to be carried by other nations. Why? Because that’s what Conservatives do.

Do I believe in restoring prayer in schools and returning the Ten Commandments to the court room, yes I do! Is the Constitution of the United States the most important writing in this county’s history and should it be strictly interpreted, yes it is not a living growing instrument. It has served this county well for over 200 years.

"You do not need a constitution to reflect changes that occur in society," All you need is a legislature and a ballot box.". "In our country, when the people decided that women should have the vote, it was not done by decree of the Supreme Court. We adopted a constitutional amendment, which is the democratic way to do it." Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia in an interview with Joshua Rozenberg, Legal Editor, Telegraph.co.UK.

Am I a Conservative, well, if you believe in the above and everything else the people in this county have done for the rest of the world in the past 200+ years yes, I am!

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
