“CONSERVATISM IS HEARTLESS”

THE SIREN SONGS OF STATISM
“HUGE DEFICITS/DEBT DON’T MATTER” Tell that to Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland & Portugal (or Argentina & Russia) “GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCE BEATS SELF-RELIANCE” Statism is unsustainable, and has failed everywhere it’s 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 hasn’t fully been tried in America.

CONSERVATIVES, MUST STAY THE COURSE…

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