Conservatism, A Manifesto: Part 2

Gabriella Hoffman, Staff Writer

Never before has the risk of “fundamental change” proven to be so instrumental for those who seek the eventual takeover or collapse of the United States. Communists and socialists are being embraced by the Democratic party and are hired to work for the President of the United States. The consequence of failing to watch and protect the conservative traditions instilled in this country permitted these individuals to push for universal health care, equal rights for animals, gay marriage, environmental fascism, destruction of manufacturing industries, global government, cult of personality, blaming our nation for acts of terrorism aboard, and accusing our troops of committing atrocities in the line of duty, among other asinine ideas. Furthermore, the failure of conservatives to operate against these destabilizing forces have demonstrated the need to reinvigorate and renew the ideals previously held by our Founding Fathers.

Yet, we conservatives need not give up tirelessly in this battle for America’s survival. The Conservative Movement is once more growing rapidly. The Tea Party Movement, has captured the sentiment of the once-silent majority. Conservatives must return to the principles of the Constitution. Americans have to embrace the Judeo-Christian principles grounded in the founding of our nation, rather than tossing them aside for the non-faith of government and political correctness. Parents must educate their children about important issues and core values on which this country was built upon, rather leaving them open to the brainwashing and indoctrination in public education. Hard work and merit must be emphasized rather than feel good quotas and affirmative action. Capitalism should not be detested because of its profit motive, but rather encouraged as it has lead to the greatest advancement of human society in the history of our existence. Corruption within the government must be denounced, with our elected officials held accountable to their constituents rather than interest groups. It is pivotal to incorporate these ideas back into our society in order to to relish and embrace the America we have known and cherished.

How does liberalism form however? Liberalism festers best when the family unit is destroyed or nonexistent. At a 9/12 tea party in San Juan Capistrano, California, I had the pleasure to meet and talk with foremost conservative speaker Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson—the founder of BOND, a nonprofit religious organization dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family By Rebuilding the Man.” As an African-American conservative activist, Peterson puts being an American before his race and attributes the problems of the black community to the intended destruction of the family unit fostered by progressives and Democrats. The welfare system that minorities have become dependent upon replaced the self-reliant man and father in the family, only to substitute them with the government and hand outs. He emphasized that white Americans should not feel guilty for the failures of the black community, and that they must stop feeling afraid of speaking out against these problems, while encouraging the black community to work to achieve success.

Illegal immigration is another play toy of the liberals to blame conservatives. Liberals endlessly pout about broken immigration laws and procedures, and blame businessmen and other Americans as responsible for the problems of illegal workers. However while blaming illegal immigration on the United States, liberals also blame the United States for not helping those illegal immigrants who are already here. Unfortunately they cannot have this situation both ways. You cannot grant amnesty and citizenship to those who clearly break the law. As Americans, we have to come to realize that making illegal immigration permissible is the consequence of families and parents failing to educate their children that hard work and labor is honorable and worthy. The notion that a college education should be given to everyone, rather than facilitating a worker’s potential at a trade or vocational school creates the political and economic problem we are currently encountering and battling.

Our movement must also weed out those not genuine to the cause to prevent conservative imposters from ruining all that we have fostered. A foremost case involves elected officials posing as conservatives, namely in the Republican Party, who vote with and support our political opponents, while giving lip service to their constituents. To paraphrase Dick Armey, former House Majority Leader (R-TX) and founder of Freedom Works—an interest group invested in limited government and libertarian ideals—the Republican Party’s moderate figureheads like John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) should not pose as conservatives and behave like Democrats, when Americans will always vote for the real liberals instead of voting for liberal-lite.

The Conservative Movement is strong, as demonstrated by prominent speakers like talk radio show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, conservative commentators Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham, Fox News Channel personalities Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, just to mention a few. These individuals work ceaselessly to defend our ideals from imposters and enemies who would like to destroy our great United States of America.

William F. Buckley, Jr. once retorted, “Truth is a demure lady, much too ladylike to knock you on your head and drag you to her cave. There she is, but people must want her, and seek her out.” In his prolific lifetime, Mr. Buckley had obligated himself to seeking the truth by espousing conservatism as his greatest tool in fending off political oppression of thought and nefarious information that predated the scene. The state-run media claims that conservatism is long dead in America, when in fact, it is merely rising from the ashes like the phoenix. Conservatives must demand the truth and the restoration of longstanding American traditions to protect the future of our great nation, the United States of America.

  1. …right.

    Because a 18/19 year old college student can really write the “conservative manifesto”
