‘The Contemporary Evil Of The Modern Political World’
Those are the words of Donald Douglas in his latest posting entitled: The Left’s Culture Of Death.
I have always been a conservative. Even when I flirted with Libertarianism and libertarianism in the 1980′s, I could never make a full commitment to either. especially the former. My conservative disposition forced me to keep at least one of my feet rooted in what could be called Traditional Conservative Thinking.
…gradual change is consistent with the idea of politics as a life-long learning process. People become set in their ways. And hence, people become conservative in terms of doing things a “right” way. People might think they’re “liberal” in their youth, but they realize they’re quite traditional in a number of respects, especially regarding thrift, morality and personal enterprise. In my case, I thought I was “liberal” into my 30′s. My dad especially was a New Deal Democrat and a black American who instilled the values of the civil rights movement in me and my sisters….
Eventually, he came to see that the modern Democratic Party was no longer the party of his father. So he made the same journey that Ronald Reagan made [that my Father made, as well]. Donald again:
…I was always conservative in terms of personal responsibility, honesty, and hard work. When I realized that most people on the left didn’t share those values I knew that I was no longer a Democrat. Most of all, the left’s stab-in-the-back on the Iraq war sealed the deal and I became an activist for truth. Throw in becoming a parent and basically experiencing a religious awakening (in the personal sense of objective truth), I found out once and for all that everything I’d come to believe about “leftist morality” and being a “liberal” was stupid.
For his ‘heresy’, Donald has suffered an incredible amount of harassment. He has had Progressives try to get him fired. But he has never wavered in his beliefs, nor in his committment to the restoration of our freedoms and liberties under Virtue.
We need to support Donald because he fights.
