Is Conservatism Really Opposite Of Liberalism?


If you listen to talk radio, you get a steady stream of rhetoric promoting what is called conservatism. I hope in the next minute or so to get you thinking about whether being conservative is really to be right.

My guess is that if you are attracted to conservatism it’s because you have can’t stand the liberal agenda. I’m guessing that you instinctively react against the redefinition of marriage and that you also reject the socialist, big government, welfare state. I’m also thinking that you consider the murder of fifty million American babies a national disgrace.

If this is a fairly good profile of your beliefs then you probably think that conservative politicians and conservative leaders are on your side.

You see, as it turns out in real life, conservatism is not the opposite of liberalism. Conservatism is not even a political philosophy. Properly understood, conservatism is really only a reaction to a political philosophy, and a very weak one at that.

By growling a while but then giving in to the advances of their supposed enemy, Conservatives only solidify the never ending gains of their big government, socialist, liberal brothers.

At the heart of this deception is the fact that conservatives don’t really take an opposite view from liberals, only a slightly slower path to the same destination.

If we want something different, it seems to me we need to stop electing conservatives, they are only yesterday’s liberals. If we want our rights restored, then we’d better start electing God-fearing Constitutionists.
