Conservatism, Unlike Liberalism, Represents Individuals

Liberalism, in its warped philosophy, wishes to make us all the same. Our Founding Fathers certainly envisioned our society as united, at times even acting as a whole, but also acting as individuals who would prosper in our unique differences.

Our joining together is often expressed in our participation in churches and volunteer organizations. These good acts and good causes demonstrates that we are not selfish individuals but beacons of spirit in our communities.

But conservatism is truly representative of the individual. The idea that big government should control our lives runs against the principles of independence that our Founding Fathers laid out in our Constitution. We know that we must govern ourselves by the traditions handed down by them. It’s through their wisdom, writings, and Constitutional teachings that we will prosper. It’s this truth that separates us from the imperfections of liberalism.
