CONSERVATISM IS HEARTLESS

THE SIREN SONGS OF STATISM


HUGE DEFICITS/DEBT DONT MATTER Tell that to Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland & Portugal (or Argentina & Russia) GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCE BEATS SELF-RELIANCE Statism is unsustainable, and has failed everywhere its been tried (whether in Europe, or the East, where even communism has been reformed in favor of free markets). ENTITLEMENT SPENDING IS SANCROSANCT Is it better to overhaul them or overwhelm entitlements? Once they go bust, everyone loses.

Statism destroys virtue by taking what the charitable would prefer to give.

CONSERVATIVE POLICY MUST BE ACCOMODATIVE Rather than abandon principle, settle on incremental gain. CONSERVATISM HAS FAILED Not true. Since FDR it hasnt fully been tried in America.

CONSERVATIVES, MUST STAY THE COURSE

LIMITED GOVERNMENT IS REGRESSIVE Government dependency destroys initiative and creates moral hazards.
