The Conservative Firing Squad
If conservatives formed a firing squad to execute socialism/progressivism, this is what it would look like!
We're so danged busy shooting each other we can't hit the target we are supposed to be aiming at. If the kind of bickering and "my conservatism is better than your conservatism" stuff that I hear on the radio and read on the forums keeps up, we'll never be able to find anyone pure enough to run against Obama in the next election..
I've read the prophecies in scripture that predict the downfall of man at the end of time and I always wondered how it would happen. Well this is it. We're going to go to war against tyranny and evil and we'll be busy shooting anyone we don't think is a "pure" conservative or Christian or libertarian or whatever brand name we attach to our particular standard of purity. We'll slaughter ourselves while the single minded armies of progressive/socialism will roll right over the top of us.
This is really sad and discouraging. What happened to the Golden Rule? What happened to love your neighbor and love means believing the best of each other. That used to be the strength of the conservative movement. I remember Ronald Reagan always appealed to the better angels of our nature. Too many of our number these days have become so angry and so focused on what the enemy is doing that they are rapidly becoming exactly like our enemy. By beholding we become changed and not always for the better. Depends what we're beholding most of the time!
I'm just sayin'
