(See in situ)


A true conservative, by

A true conservative, by definition, has an abnormally high fear of the unknown. Conservatives have always been supporters of restricting peoples' liberty to address this fear. The crowning achievement of conservatism was mercantilism for god's sake!!!!

Look at the words!!! Define your terms, otherwise they mean whatever you want them to mean.

conservative- Holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in politics or religion.

liberal- Open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.

So, according to you, liberty isn't limited by the EQUAL liberty of others, but by insane ramblings of sociopaths, otherwise known as "laws". Fair enough. I just disagree wholeheartedly, and remain in support of EQUAL rights, not privileges granted by sociopaths. I simply disagree on a foundational level.

"I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."
