...Conservatives Aren't the Extremists

America's liberals and squishy Republicans routinely
mischaracterize mainstream conservatives as extreme,
when the liberals actually are the real extremists, by any
fair measure.

Conservatives are
not the ones who:
  • Sermonize about tolerance yet demonstrate
    intolerance toward conservative and Christian
    thought
  • Support exterminating babies in the womb
  • Apologize the world over for America
  • Or gut the military and missile defense because of some dangerously egotistical
    notion that they have the magic to turn evil into goodness with their charisma and
    eloquence or, even worse, because they refuse to recognize evil in the world,
    except as emanating from the United States.

Conservatives
aren't the ones who:
  • Have so little faith in their fellow human beings that they diminish their dignity by
    expanding the welfare state and increasing man's learned dependency on
    government
  • Judge people by the color of their skin instead of the content of their character
  • Pit economic groups against one another, stoking the flames of envy and greed
  • Punish success, reward failure, and promote mediocrity
  • Side with the world's tyrants and dictators
  • Slavishly attach themselves to leftist propaganda about impending environmental
    catastrophes
  • Promote a secular humanist worldview that considers government a quasi-deity
    that can perfect the human condition
  • Or morally equate the practice of enhanced interrogation techniques to save
    innocent lives with that of beheading innocent people.

Conservatives
aren't the ones who:
  • Seek to criminalize policy differences and,
    like a thuggish Third World dictatorship,
    prosecute previous administration officials
    for implementing EIT that their party's
    leadership was briefed on and approved
  • Have a party leader who falsely accused the
    CIA of lying concerning those briefings
  • Or who voted to give President George W.
    Bush authority to attack Iraq because they
    believed, based on our best intelligence at
    the time and that of the intelligence
    agencies of every other major nation, that
    Iraq had WMD and then spent the next five
    years attacking Bush for attacking Iraq and
    lying about Bush's alleged lies—contending
    that a man they painted as the dumbest
    president in history duped them into
    believing WMD existed.

Conservatives
aren't the ones who:
  • Actually blocked military ballots and falsely accused the other party of suppressing
    black voters, with absolutely no evidence.
  • Publicly declared that President Bush delayed the federal response to Katrina
    because of his alleged racism, with utter disregard for the abominable lie it was
    and the untold damage that message would do to race relations
  • Aren't honest about their beliefs, fearful the voters would reject them outright if
    they were
  • Are using government money we don't have to fund community organizing groups
    to manipulate the census, gerrymander districts and register illegal voters by the
    thousands
  • Or consciously employ the sinister tactics of radical Saul Alinsky to target, freeze
    and demonize private citizens who dissent from their policies.

Conservatives
aren't the ones who:
  • Seek to silence the opposition on talk radio and college campuses
  • Support eliminating secret ballots for union membership to intimidate workers into
    joining the unions, and then have the audacity to call it free choice
  • Oppose vouchers to keep inner-city minorities trapped in inferior schools while
    pretending to be their caretakers and while sending their own children to elite
    private schools
  • Reverse welfare reform despite its proven successful record; believe it's kosher for
    judges to twist the Constitution into whatever judges want it to say and consider
    foreign law in interpreting it
  • Favor nationalizing healthcare instead of implementing market reforms in the face
    of overwhelming evidence that socialized medicine has been a disaster
    everywhere and every time it's been tried
  • Glamorize the world's tyrants and the conditions in their thugocracies
  • Ignore the verdict of history that socialism destroys the human spirit and cannot
    work in the real world — assuming it would be desirable if it could, which it most
    certainly would not
  • Promote wide-open borders and universal amnesty for illegals
  • Or believe government should be the primary arbiter of philanthropy in the United
    States.

Conservatives
do want to:
  • Restore constitutional principles, knowing we owe
    our liberties to our uniquely structured government
    and the Judeo-Christian principles undergirding it
  • Recognize evil in the world and favor a strong
    national defense and peace through strength
  • Believe in the individual and want to unleash his
    entrepreneurial spirit and provide him equal
    protection under the law
  • Protect the lives of the unborn
  • And defend traditional values — values that have
    been instrumental in making this the freest and
    most prosperous nation in history.

Republicans must cease this self-destructive tendency to emulate Democrats.
They must grow more comfortable in their own political skin and return the party
to its conservative roots by articulating, without apology or reservation,
mainstream conservatism. They must quit allowing the left to define them and
the terms of the national debate.

This is a war whose outcome will determine whether our children will live in freedom and
prosperity, so let's answer the call.
