Why are common sense principles labeled conservative?
Perhaps because liberals, socialists, progressives, communists have worked so hard to discredit the function and use of the human mind to provide sustenance and happiness of the individual.
Those are good principles, but Bill missed principle #1. The Number One conservative principle is honesty: simple trustworthiness, and fidelity to the Truth.
Liberals are people of the lie. They lie about their intent. They lie about their opponents. They lie about the Constitution.
Liberals lie even about whether there’s such a thing as truth. They say things like “it’s a living, breathing Constitution,” “what is truth?” and “your truth is not my truth.”
They speak their father’s native language, and they excuse their lies with another lie: “everybody lies.”
Conservatives OTOH, believe that the Truth is of paramount importance, and lying is sinful. Truth is absolute, not relative. Two honest people may have conflicting opinions about what the truth is about something, but they can’t both be right. Truth, itself, is not a matter of opinion.
Laws and Constitutions do not magically change in meaning, according to the whims of judges. Words mean what they meant when they were written or spoken, no more and no less. Documents don’t live, breathe, and change in meaning to match someone’s opinion about what the writers should have written.
And, by golly, not everybody lies! Perfect honesty is rare, but, at the very least, when someone lies, he ought to feel guilty about it. If he doesn’t, he must be a liberal.
