What Conservatives want to conserve is freedom

What Conservatives want to conserve is freedom.  Conservatives want to conserve the liberties spelled out in the Constitution.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Anyone who disagrees with that tenet is no conservative. Compromising freedom away through “bipartisanship” is nothing more than selling freedom down the river slowly versus all at once.  The history of the world is tyranny and oppression.  The United States was founded on the principle of limited government to prevent tyranny and oppression.

Each perversion of the Constitution takes the United States closer to tyranny and oppression.  A situation where one group believes it is right to take from another at the point of a gun.  A situation where elites rule every part of our lives from Washington.

One of the true freedom-loving conservatives was Senator Goldwater:

You don’t need to be straight to fight and die for your country. You just need to shoot straight. – Goldwater

Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism. – Goldwater

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.  – Goldwater
