Because the democrats and their slave propaganda machine the media have completely redefined the terms Conservative and Liberal.
Here we go !
For the constitution. Think the constitution is a old rag ? Read and understand the Bill of Rights before you send it through the shredder.
The writers of the Constitution were Extremely socially liberal. They're the original liberals. Someone show me anything of significance to today in the Constitution that was meant to restrict any person doing anything on a personal level. There were no mention of drugs, homosexual activity, prostitution, etc etc. This country was founded on the premise of allowing people to do whatever they wanted until their activity became abuse of another. If you're a liberal and believe in the premise, you might be a closet conservative.
Yes, there were some terrible things going on regards the black race in early America, but realize the democrat party was responsible for all of the anti-black legislation. The Republican party was Created to free the black people. This is no endorsement of the current Republican party. They are useless and may even be as destructive as the democrats have always been. Our current government is broken.
Conservatives are not racists, religion fanatics bent on forcing their belief on others, or people interested in controlling other people at all outside of obeying reasonable laws founded in the respect for other people.
Note that many Republicans are not Conservatives.
If you are young, and you think things like world peace, social equality, gender equality, economic equality, clean air, water, and soil, humane treatment of animals and all the other similar and sane concepts are important, then there is nothing wrong with you unless you think Conservatives are not for such things. We are. This is basic sane humanity. We start with these concepts in Kindergarten, then refine the methods to achieve such things based on real world realities. Show me someone who isn't for any of these things and I'll show you a complete retard/sociopath/evil doer. For example, the self absorbed retards in charge of North Korea have no interest in your sane ideas about how things should be going down on our beautiful planet. Tell me how you're going to change this. Talk to me about the billion + moslems around the world who still cheer and party every September 11...
If you are older, Heck I don't know, 40+ these days since federal education and university education has been taken over by liberal progressives (see next), and you still believe things like socialism is a valid economic system and you believe all the stuff you hear from the media and government then you simply have not developed a capacity for critical thought. You are immersed in a non-reality environment. Hey, you may have a good reason for this like You are young and you want to spend your time enjoying life, the freedoms afforded you and even working hard for your future.
There is nothing wrong with that except for the fact that if you are
sane, then at some point in the future you will realize that your
country has been taken away from you while you were making other
Note that the vast majority of people were All Liberals early on. Most conservatives had been complete liberals - not just social. All of those who became conservatives realized that in order to make these good things happen they had to work within the real world realities that exist and learn how to deal with this very complex environment. Not as many people as you think want "world peace". You may be surprised to find out how many don't. Nothing is achievable day 1 or day 10. Big changes take a long time because things need to remain in balance. Process-cost-cause and effect-livability. Solar farms are killing massive numbers of birds. Wind farms are killing massive numbers of birds.
There are not Easy solutions. If were easy we'd already be doing it. What do you think, business people sit around rubbing their hands together and laughing about how they're hurting the environment? Try again.
When I was a kid in Pittsburgh in the 1950's and 60's with all the steel mills, you could actually see the particulate pollution drifting down on you in the sky. The Ohio River in Pittsburgh was a chemical disaster. Chemical plants and many other manufacturers simply poured their waste into the river. You can't believe how much cleaner everything is today compared to then. It didn't happen in a decade. It happened over decades.
You're a communist. Move to Russia and leave us alone.
In closing, there are Huge things going on in America right now and you will
regret not getting involved in them. This is your reality. You will
have to do your own research and get involved sooner than planned. For
example, if you think you're going to watch and read the 'news', or watch
the last 30 days worth of election debates in order to perform due
diligence for understanding where candidates and political parties stand
on America's leadership direction, you're an idiot.
Because so many swing voters are idiots, politicians or people running for political office have to lie. They have to rely on polls and marketing demographics to attain the number of votes they are looking for in the area they are running. In Example, john mccain when running in his last election talked about border security like he wanted a 1000 foot high wall made of Neutronium on the Southern border. A nano-second after being re-elected he started talking about Amnesty for all illegal aliens.
Can you see this? Do you realize how politicians see the vast majority of voters as complete morons that they can say anything they want to get you to vote for them, then you do and they piss on you instead of honoring your vote? Do you want to be one of these people?
Do you not understand government By the people For the people? If they all lie and do whatever they want after they are elected, how can you defend that as a valid political system that works for anyone including you. I'm not telling you how to vote. I'm just telling you to put some friggin effort into it.
