I am so sick of conservatives being the whipping boy for Prozac-laden, neurotic liberals who have nothing better to do with their lives then to beat up on conservatives. To quote Jimmy Stewart in “A Wonderful Life:
George: Do you know how long it takes a working man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you’re talking about. They do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn’t think so. People were human beings to him, but to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they’re cattle. Well, in my book, he died a much richer man than you’ll ever be. [I wanted to put the whole quote because it is too poignant to edit]
And that my friends is how liberals view conservatives-as rabble, as cattle. They are the Mr. Potters of the world. They are warped and frustrated and without conscience or heart. So I sing the praises of the conservative man and woman out there. The one who is working and paying and living and dying. The ones who give up their time to help out in their community even when there are no photographers around and it is not Christmas. The ones who give their shirts off their back because someone else needs it more. The ones who enlist in the military to preserve our freedom. The conservatives-I salute you!
Liberals like to act like they are more intelligent, more enlightened but despite their many degrees the proof of their intelligence is sorely lacking. It is the conservatives, the ones still searching for the mysteries of God, that broaden our minds. It is Sir Isaac Newtons and even Einstein who admitted to a belief in God that have changed our world. Oh no, don’t discount the genius of the conservative mind. We are more in touch with science because we are in touch with God, not despite Him. Conservatives are seekers of the truth, while liberals seek only what feels good now. The conservative is by no means feeble-minded and is not blinded by the philosophies of men. For as Hebrew National says: We answer to a Higher Authority. Yes, the conservative is fluent in the language of righteousness even when he, himself, falters. We cling to this language, for we know there is no one greater. The conservative is by no means a “dumb hillbilly” but a humble servant. Our knowledge comes from the Creator and not myths of men. To the brilliant conservatives-I humbly bow before you.
Philanthropy-no one does it better. It is our calling. It is part of our generous nature, not because we are generous by nature-liberals prove that but because it is bestowed on us through Him. When Katrina hit, it wasn’t the ACLU first on the scene-it was the conservatives, the Christians, the God-fearing men and women who made sure people had a place to go, food to eat, clothes to wear. While the ingrates were belly-aching about the government and FEMA, the church, the conservatives, those dreaded “bigots” were down in Louisiana helping out the Black community. When the liberals were talking about saving pond scum or other such nonsense, it was the conservative women who were beating the drum about Dafur. Only when it became fashionable did the liberals jump on the bandwagon but by then the conservatives were already doing what they could to stop the sex slave trade in Dafur!
So while the liberals are busy aborting and starving the Third World-conservatives are over there educating them, helping them and applauding their efforts to eradicate the AIDS problem-not by throwing worthless condoms at them but by teaching them the value of their bodies and of their souls. While liberals continually berate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, nothing has done more to bring people out of poverty than all the liberal social programs put together. Then again Jesus never saw material poverty as that big an issue, it was the poverty of the soul he was worried about. Jesus-the original Transformer. For no one can transform a life more than he-conservatives know this. For at the heart of most conservatives is a former heathen who has been transformed by his power. While liberals abhor self-reliance, conservatives relish it. It is their most cherished possession. They seek to pass it on. It is the conservative who created the American Dream and the ones who still seek to share it with all who are willing to sacrifice for it.
Yes, the conservative man and woman are bus drivers, janitors, nurses, teachers and everything else under the sun but they also have the ability to shine-to entertain. For the conservative entertainer shows us life the way no one else does yet somehow staying grounded. Trisha Yearwood finds a way to sing about love and heartache without going into rehab every other day. Tim MacGraw doesn’t find himself in Star because he is cheating on Faith. Oh yes, our stars have much more gratitude, you don’t hear Garth Brooks whining about how he doesn’t get paid enough. You don’t see Toby Keith writing slave across his face. Oh no, these are down to earth, genuine people. These are our stars. We relate to them because their music is more than just vulgar messages about “slangin’ cane” and killing cops. It is about our very humanity.
Conservatives come in all colors. They are Black like me. They are White, they are Hispanic, they are everyone who doesn’t buy into the victim mentality. They are the true winners. They birth the kids and not from test tubes, they run the PTA, they are this country’s backbone. They are poor, they are rich, they are everything in between. Money doesn’t make you a conservative-ideals do. Power doesn’t make you an conservative-values do. It is the shared mission that binds us all together and creates real diversity, not the artificial concept put forth by liberals. We are brothers and sisters, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons. We are family. We are conservatives and I am so proud to be one. God bless each and every one of you for all you do to make this country great. It couldn’t be done without you…..and the liberals know it!
