The New Conservative Platform
I am a conservative (obviously), I prefer to look at it that way because I don’t like the establishment Republicans or Democrats, and Liberals are stuck in La La Land. However since we really only have a two party system, we conservatives get lumped in with what was the old idea of a republican. The John McCain Republican, a people pleaser who ends up not pleasing any of the people.
I am calling for a New republican platform, one that would align the rest of America and ensure we not only win in 2012, but that our party will have many years to correct the progressives “Prosperity Speed Bump”.
With technology, and people getting better and better at basic math, it is becoming quite obvious that Conservatives know what it will take to get the economy going. Fair taxes, controlled social programs, and major accountability in public spending. You know that all so hated true philosophy, DON’T SPEND MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN! The only deniers are the ones who will look stupid when it works.
So why is the GOP struggling? We have these rock star conservative like Walker, Christie, and Ryan. The reformers like Romney. The up and comings like Mia Love. What is so hard?
Well the Dems have one last card to play, Passion. That’s right, the only thing the Dems do better than us is play on peoples passions (I would have said Lie but we never lie). Just look at the speeches from this years DNC. They got massive applause and even a slight bump in the polls. However if you look back, they barely talked about anything. The economy, unemployment all ignored. How the hell do they do it? Well I will tell you.
They play purely on the social issues, and the social issues will make people do crazy things. I think back to a stand up from one of my favorite comedians Jim Gaffigan, he had a line in his routine that hit our social culture square on the head.
During the lead in to one of his routines, he made a comment to the crowd along the lines of this, “I love being comfortable, and I want everyone here to be comfortable, and that is why I am going to talk to you about Jesus Christ.” It was funnier when he delivered it because of the sarcasm, it is also true. No two words can make a liberal go insane more than Jesus Christ (maybe Geroge Bush but you get what I am saying). I wont get in too deep into theology because even reading it probably made you uncomfortable. My theory in a nut shell, is that Libs in general think they are so much better than others, and know so much more that they are above the possibility of a higher power than themselves. You can neither prove God exists or does not exist that is why it is called “having faith”.
I digress, How do we get all the independents and the leaning democrats to our side? It is simple, we accept concessions on the hottest buttons they have. Abortion and same sex marriage.
I will begin with same sex marriage. To me it is time we let this issue go. I am not saying we all have to accept it, what I am saying as a true conservative who follows GOD, we try to be good, accepting, and loving people in God’s image, and we scale back government in the conservative image. I find myself asking, “Why the hell do I need a permit to get married?” Marriage is after all a religious thing. The word “marriage” derives from Middle English mariage, which first appears in 1250–1300 CE This in turn is derived from Old French marier (to marry) and ultimately Latin marītāre meaning to provide with a husband or wife and marītāri meaning to get married. (Taken from Wikipedia).
I view the meanings as a moot point. I don’t think that the government should be involved in marriage at all. What is the point of their involvement? All I can come up with is two reasons. To fine us (marriage permit), and to tax us accordingly at the end of the year. So lets ditch the permit because I think it is unconstitutional. The tax thing is a good reason to track a “couple” especially if they recognize dependency by it.
I immediately think to myself, I had roommates and we used to be dependent on each other when we had a house, why did we not get any breaks? In reality any two people who live together should be looked at the same way through the IRS’s beady little eye. So our platform should be to do away with government recognized marriage, and leave it to Religion.
Secondly, Abortion. This is a hot issue for me, I know many people that have been affected by this, and to me it is one of the greatest evils our planet has ever seen. It is the largest case of genocide this planet has ever seen, and people are just fine with it which makes me cringe a bit. With that said, you understand how important that topic is to me, and with what I am about to say you will understand how important this country is to me. I think we should give up the issue. I think we should accept it as a woman’s choice. SHOCKED?!?!?! Well wait, there is a major catch. Our concession on abortion would be accepted with one major guarantee.
That guarantee would be that not one single dollar or cent would ever be taken from the taxpayer to fund any abortion, and that you cannot perform an abortion once there is a detectable heartbeat*. We concede to the woman’s choice, but the woman has to pay for it. It sickens me everyday that my money could be used to terminate a babies life. It pisses me off even more when women and men tell me to stay out of it because I am not a woman, and I don’t know what it’s like.
I have one thing to say to that. If you get abortions in buildings, and by doctors that are subsidized by the government. It IS my business, and I will not stay out of it. If you accept Obamacare, expect me to complain about how fat you are, how lazy you are, how you eat, how you drink, how you drive, and any other aspect of your life that I do not agree with for health reasons, because I am paying for it. You have chosen to let the government subsidize your body, you have sold your freedom for a empty promise by a man who, wants control over your life decisions, wants your vote, and wants to make his mark in history.
Our platform should be, that you are free to do what you want to yourself and your body without our intrusion, as long as we don’t have to pay for it.
I think it is a very fair, and common sense platform, I think it is inclusive, and I think it offers freedom to those who do not know they are slaves.
“It is hard to free fools from the chains they revere.”
My theory, is that making people pay for their own abortions would actually end it faster than the current method by fighting it. We are not doing well in this battle, more and more babies die every year, and planned parenthood gets more and more of our money. I am sick of funding it. You should be to.
