r9etb, I agree with your point that is why I advocate for conservative values as embodied in the Constitution.

The current disarray in our society and government are the workings of Progressives,Communist and Liberals who have almost destroyed the concept of one nation under God, indivisible...

It was Angela Merkle who declared recently that multiculturalism has 'failed utterly. The fact that this country is falling apart because of multiple opinions brought on by multiculturalism is what Liberalism has fostered in this country.

.... taking advantage of people (including us) who have forgotten that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Not only that, but conservatives are just as likely to support expansion of government into those areas that most tickle our fancies -- the military (and military/industrial complex) being an excellent example.

The problem with conservatism is (and has always been) the tendency to assume that people agree with us, and that simply to state some principle or clause of the Constitution is sufficient to win any argument.

But we tend to lack any mechanism by which to educate regular people about conservative ideas, and we definitely lack convincing answers when faced with an actual argument, especially in a situation for which the power of government seems to offer a sensible solution.
