Comment on a blog post about conservatism

As long as we stick to the constitution and the intent of our founding fathers. We need to quit trying to legislate morality and entangling ourselves in the affairs of foreign nations.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness means letting other people do things that we may not agree with. As long as they do not violate the rights of others.

God given inalienable rights are for ALL people, not just Amercan citizens.

We are fond of saying we want to be Constitutionalists, but what if it means re-examining and letting go of some of our long-held notions about foreign affairs and personal liberty and what true conservatism really means????

I hope and pray so.

Still feeling optimistic about Liberty. If only we can get it across that Liberty for us means Liberty for others - whom some of us would rather not have Liberty. If they don't have Liberty today, tomorrow we won't have it either.

The quote 'first they came for.....then they came for me...." comes to mind.

Моя история из жизни: мы как-то с мамой ехали в маршрутке,( мама спец по всем видам мяса на глаз определяет что это), на остановке залазит подвипывший мужик с куском свежака в одноразовом пакете. Едем. Маршрутка резко тормозит,мужик по инерции бежит вперед и пакет рвется ,оттуда выпадет свежак ,дальше мамины слова- " Мужчина,у вас вымя выпало!" я медленно сползаю под сиденье , пассажиры ржут, мужик красный - выбегает на следующей остановке :)))
