Conservatism---a Magnificent Philosophy

Today a quote from Mark Levin. This is one to keep handy, perhaps to memorize.

Conservatism is not a narrow is the philosophy of the Founding Fathers. It is the philosophy of liberty, opportunity, private property, national security.

It is a philosophy that promotes the liberation of the individual, that nurtures competition, and that embraces all people regardless of who they are, or where they have been.

It is a philosophy that rejects the authoritarianism of the few, of the politician, of the bureaucrat; and promotes limited, stable and predictable government authority.

It is a philosophy that rejects the bankrupting of future generations to pay for the benefits of the current generation.

It is a philosophy that expects its citizens to abide by a just and righteous and predictable law and demands the same from aliens who cross our borders illegally.

It is a philosophy which emphasizes the family and faith, over government.

Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny. It's the only one. It's based on thousands of years of human experience. There is nothing narrow about the conservative philosophy. It's a liberating philosophy.

It is a magnificent philosophy.

It is a philosophy for the ages, for all times.

Conservatives need to be able to express what they believe in. I bet Levin's description of the Conservative philosophy rings true with a great many Americans who are worried about the culture of unaffordable lollipops the current administration is hell-bent on creating.

I'm following your blog as well as Opus #6.

Who would have thought the day would arrive when being a moderate Constitutionalist would be branded a "radical"?

Great points, Levin is great, I love it when he just takes the gloves off and gets angry - he says what needs to be heard!
