Find The Conservative

Perhaps you've seen these ads about immigration reform from "Americans For A Conservative Direction."

This cracked me up.  They call themselves conservatives but not only make arguments most conservatives disagree with, they make arguments most conservatives believe are lies.

Their website puts up a nice front, but it didn't take much checking to discover some of their funding is from techno-liberals like Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates.  I find it hard to believe these ads can make much difference--they're just too silly--but who knows?

Hey liberals, this is the result of Citizens United. How come you're not protesting?

Speaking of who's a true conservative, it was just July 4th, time of year when the Right trots out its claim the Founding Fathers were conservatives.  Not to be outdone, the Left is claiming the Founders for their own.

As I've stated before, these arguments are pointless.  Even if the Founders had simple, well-defined views, it was a different time so it's hard to compare what people believed then to what they believe now. (And even if you convinced someone, so what?)

Though I do have a question. If the Founders were conservative, what were the British?

Does "conservative" mean anything any more other than a term of scorn? (Like "liberal" became a few years back?)

People on the right still proudly call themselves conservatives--indeed, fight for the honor to be called true conservatives--while people on the left are still afraid to be known as liberals, and prefer to make up other names, such as progressives or centrists.

What were the British? Only the greatest republic of all time.

And yet the Tea Party is considered radical. Wherever did they get that name.
