The conservative agenda is supposed to be one of limited government, individual rights-and individualism, equal protection under the law, liberty, and
If this is true why is it so many conservatives fight for larger institutions, domestic spying, LGBT rights, and make laws that would inhibit
The answer is their religious doctrine. Not the Bible, as the bible is replete with individualist ideals, stories of self-determination, self defense,
and individual responsibility. I'm talking about religious doctrine. Things that didn't exist until the Church created it. The refusal to understand
the time the bible was written and the world we live in today.
I'm a conservative-libertarian. I believe in conservative principles. But Conservatives themselves seem to believe that we can part out society and
remove the people they don't agree with from the vessel of the US Constitution and the rights and responsibilities it protects. In general I'm
referring to the LGBT fight. I stand behind my brothers and sisters who are gay. I've grown up with gay people all my life. I remember when being gay
HAD TO BE secretive because of how dangerous it was to come out. I remember the intolerance, the hatred, and the murders of gay people, some of them
I believe wholeheartedly in conservative principles. Because of those principles I believe that rights belong to humans NOT government. Government has
powers and they are specific and enumerated. Government has no business taking away the rights of ANY American to determine the course of their lives.
FURTHER the government is BOUND BY LAW to treat all Americans equally in application of the law. Why is it so hard for conservatives to accept gay
people as just another person? As Americans who are due the rights bestowed upon them by the virtue of their humanity and the grace of God?
It's time to change Conservatism. We must accept all Americans if we are ever to fight the destructive policies of collectivism and statism.
Millennial Republicans see
risk for party in gay marriage response
Millennial Republicans are urging GOP leaders to adopt an inclusive tone on gay marriage following last week's Supreme Court ruling.
They argue that combative rhetoric risks alienating a new generation of voters who could abandon Republican candidates over the issue.
Indeed. I'd go much further and say that conservative republicans have do some soul searching here. They must stop the contradictory interpretations
of law that segregate entire groups of our society from the protections enjoyed by American citizenship.
